Keep your current fan setup, you are running plenty cool as it is. What makes you think you need a better cooling system? A more powerful P/S may get you much more from overclocking then probably a better cooler in your case. What P/S are you using and what is its rating?

I would get a Zalman Gold Plated Cooler because they look cool. The only downside is they suck cock. Thats the price

The word Zalman hasn't been mentioned in this thread. Any reason for bringing it up?

I have to agree with you about the PS with the fan on the bottom. I put in an Enermax 350 last week and I'm seeing cpu temps from 6-8 degrees C cooler than my old 300W PS. Right now my 850 TBird with a Volcano II is reading 43C (MB at 29C) with the ambient room temp at 22C. Last night when the room temp was 26C I recorded 48C for the cpu. I see another plus for the new PS. ASUS Probe has not shown one 3.3V problem. I used to get that error message occasionally with my old 300W PS. Fairly standard setup with a midtower case, combo floppy, 40gig 7200 Maxtor, DVD, CDRW, 256MB ram, Radeon videocard, internal modem & SB Live.
Includes one intake and one exhaust fan.

What really surprises me is that the original PS was only 250W. I ran it for months without any obvious problems. Just lucky. I only used the 300W for about two months, but I wanted more cooling so I upgraded to the Enermax.
