I've got 2 pcs, one is running fairly cool and I believe it will sustain during the hot summer as well. The other system is using an older case and is constantly running 10-15 degrees higher and I'm really worried about it getting overheated in the summer as I don't always run my AC.

Is it better to have it out without a case sitting somewhere? Or should I try to get another one that's same as my first one?

How do people go about setting up their rigs?

Thanks!

It depends entire on the airflow in the system vs. trapped heat due to the heat. I have one system that runs cooler with the side panel removed, and another system that substantially heats up if I remove the side.

If I've helped you out, donations appreciated - 1G5NuGN9D6Vax6pGfqQJqPvww1CCJQPjhe

I see what you mean. This case has horrible airflow and no side intake. I just removed the side and its already 17 degrees cooler! Was at 85 or so now 68.

Wow I guess that answers it!  The other case has perfect airflow, 2 front intakes, 1 side intake, no obstructions whatsoever, removed all lower bays. 2 upper fans blowing out and one in the rear and it runs at a constant 65ish degrees.

I can't believe I paid so much for that case back in the day!
