Its a computer im building for work, work is in a warehouse that can easily get over 100 F in the hot Texas summer. Also the thing is whisper quiet, its one of those machines that you cant tell if its on or not.
And no i don't always look like that i just haven't showered/shaved today :)

Only problem with those temps are that they are taken through the bios and as everyone should know, the system bios is not the most accurate method of reporting anything.............. :shock:

It's a OK start though I guess.

I would agree, add an exhaust fan that pulls a little more air than the one on the Scythe Ninja. This will assist in keeping the CPU cooler and the overall inside of case temps during those 100+ degree days will remain lower.

I agree with both the above comments... 18C sucks! :axe: :axe: :axe:

Slap a fan in there and prove them wrong!

Check the temps in CoreTemp! It's accurate, but the bios, not so much so. (But if it is accurate, wheee!!)
AMD Opteron 1224SE "Santa Ana" = DFI Lanparty UT NF590 SLI-M2R/G
Crucial Ballistix 4x1GB DDR2 800 = Corsair CMPSU-750TX
Sapphire 4870 1GB = Sceptre X20WG-Naga 20" = Logitech X-530 5.1
Seagate 320GB (SATA II) x2 = Samsung SH-S203B (SATA)

That's great and all, but aren't they known for having bad temperature sensors? It's impossible to take 20C air and make it cool something somewhat warm under 20C :P

Yeah, you can't cool a computer cooler than room temp with air only.

UNLESS! Somehow you have created an air conditioner.
