Hey guys just got a small airflow question. I have cats at home so I have to use a "closed" case and so I'm re-using an old case I had

Specs
2g ddr3 kingston (cheaper then buying 1 g)
225 AMD x2 AM3 (long story short 5e more then the 140 so might as wel)
G-byte MB
1x 5830 - Slight o/c at 850 runing stable 24+ hours at 62c
525w Bronze 80+ enermax pfc modular power supply

My problem is two fold, 1 i notice a few hash rejections (4000 shares submitted 100~ rejected)  in a pool, not sure what that means but i dont think it's a problem as even without the o/c and so on it did it anyhow.

My real problem is my PSU feels sooo hot and so is the top of the case, i was thinking of adding a fan in the back ONTO the grill of of the PSU sucking the hot air and pushing it out but i was unsure if that would mess up the air flow from the 120' fan it has built in .. the rest of the pc seams pretty cool mb is around 30c' and so on.. .. i've added fotos, if any one has any idea on how to reduce temp to further help + see any out points, let me know.

On that last picture, if you could mount a fan to blow air out of the case on the grill on top, it would cool it down a lot.


Also, if your PSU is hot, double check the side to make sure there's no minimum for the outgoing power.

Some PSU's need to be letting out a certain amount of power to not fry themselves.

Thanks kain,

I checked forthe psu, i don't think so these are some bad ass psu plus with that video card sucking i doubt it has a low power out situation.. but as far as the extra fan..

Interesting idea.. so remove the pipe that leads to the cpu cooling from the side of the computer case and add a fan there that sucks the hot air from the "top" and blows it out ? .. won't that lead to the cpu not able to recycle are well, or even too much air going out (already 1 far + psu up there) and not enough air coming in so possibly creating a stale mate and not really helping? .. god i wish i smoked if toss in some nice cig smoke and record it, slow it down and see the actual air flow Sad

so mounting an extra fan in the BACK of the psu (directly onto it's grill) would prob be a bad idea?
