    55c+!! Help

    Well it would seem that I'm not the only one, that's good and bad i guess, but i just finished piecing together a 865glc, I'm running 4gigs or 400MHz DDR, with a 3.4GHz ht joint, nVidia gforce 5700ve, and a Sb audgy ls 2 HD's both western degie ones a 150 gig and the other a 130gig, its powered by a AP450W -- A-Power 450-Watt ATX Dual Fan Power Supply

    1 CD ROM DVD writer something speed dont remember, anyway, 2 fan's one in the front is pulling and the one in the back is pushing it out, the fan on the video card not included,

    it would seem that when i go and rock out battlefield 2 and put a good 2 gig memory load, she over heats in like 5 min, first i did the case closed, that was about 5 Min's till it heated up then i opened the case and had a fan blowing right in there, and it lasted about 20,

    what the max i should set this temp 2? zone 1 and processor zone stay low barely moving at all during loads. But zone 2 just rockets up under stress,

    did i not build something right? should i invest in memory heat sinks

    oh the memory is 4 1 gig 400MHz ultra

    anyone got any idea's before i throw some money away?

    Where is the zone 2 sensor at? The sensor may be reading falsely, or you have an airflow problem in one area... Adding a side fan might help in that case. Make sure your psu fan is blowing out, too.
