because a pc case is designed to circulate air ... you are stopping the circulation by ... letting it out ;0)

Sorry ... its just one of my subjects that I teach ... and that is the official line

lol sorry, but I can prove that wrong, that theory is only applicable if the temperature in the comp box is actually lower than the one outside, witch is not my case at all...

I used to have this same problem as during the summer my comp overheats we have no central air in the house so it gets like 80 inside and its misserable anyway i used to have to do the same thing open a side and put a box fan next to it Ultimate circulation! it worked most of the time. if ur still haveing a problem it might be one of your heatsink fans that is the main problem check your cpu fan and heatsink clean it out if u need to and maybe check video card heatsink ive had these problems befor also there are also some decent case fan upgrades u could buy pretty cheap to help the circulation overall inside this is what i did and have very little problem.

As the Almighty Butters said the box is made for circulation its not that the air inside is higher or lower its the air flow that keeps your heatsinks cool. cooler air does help but isnt the main factor its how fans are placed and the overall air circulation inside the box such as your front fans sucking in and your rear fans blowing out so theres a constant cycle of air threw the box.

Tho i will say DONT Take your heatsink off
IF U DONT KNOW WHAT YOUR DOING!!!! Smile

Anyway nice to meet you how u get things worked out and come back Smile

Well I do clean my heatsink fans all the time, actually I got one replaced about 2 months ago... Ah I guess I'll just have to wait out the summer, or at least what's left of it. Thanks Very Happy
