Thanks caveman! I just did a more thorough blowing out and got it down a bit more also. Trying to hold out w/o air cond for as much as possible

It's summer? Where I am, I haven't noticed

My temps for my i5 usually stay pretty consistent between 35 C and 60 C depending on what I'm playing or if I'm rendering (Note that I also have it OCd a bit too). As caveman said, those temps are fine. I think the last I heard, it shouldn't become worrisome unless they reach above 80 C

Only problem i see is the Hard Drive temp, most HDs arent meant to run at temps that high for to long if at all.

I looked at that and found the specs say 140F max but I'll keep an eye on it. http://reviews.cnet.com/internal-har...-33875274.html

Most HDD's are fine up to 60C, more for laptop drives.

Ah good! I was reading that review wrong I think, it says:

Environmental Parameters

Min Operating Temperature 32 °F
Max Operating Temperature 140 °F

this does not tell me the max internal temps of the hdd I think but only the safe ambient temps.

Times like this I wish I could find that Google hdd study, anyway older hard drives have a higher failure rate iirc most failures happening around 46c with hdd's 4+ years old.. But surprise surprise the failure rate on 4+ year old hdd's under 12c was even worse.. So if the drive is getting on in age temp's really start becoming a problem...
