  1. auhhmmmmmmmm

    i think you should fix it up.

    where is the noise coming from?

    heat.... what about it? no airflow? components failing due to heat? explain.

    that build looks pretty good (i know it aint new, but i think you can keep it for a couple of more years at least [the money that you will spend today for a new build will get you a lot further in 2 years on a new build :)])
  2. You should fix the problem. If you're playing at 1080p, that build is still relevant for another 1 or 2 years.
