Cooling tip summer '08

Summer is in full swing and its hot. Your system is taking the brunt even when properly cooled will suffer. I suggest when things get hot, open case, place a 6in. fan to blow into case. Your system maybe working great but overall the stress during summer months can take its toll. Even if your room is A/C'ed it works better with a simple fan.

The small fan is AC powered, reduces any system power strain. It's usually quiet and its airflow is far better than a 120mm one, even when mounted on the side. Of course you can replace it a with a much larger fan to help better. Once the summer heat period is over, remove and store. You can use the "clamp type" as well.
