  • Morex 5677 Case, way too hot.

    I have a Foxconn 1155 motherboard with an i3, the temps were getting really high a lot of the time. The case is even right near my recirculate intake which helped some, but still hit 70+ 80+ even 90 sometimes.

    I switched out the cooler for an i5 cooler with a copper core and cut a large hole right above the CPU fan, made massive amounts of difference. The cpu now almost never gets above 50 with a pretty good load on it.

    I just wanted to give a heads up to anyone buying this case that the 2 fans on the side were nowhere enough cooling for my i3 system. A better cooler may help, but I doubt it.
