I just can't clean my computer fast enough! Both on the inside and outside!

@Gabriel
Yeah, though the case has about 4 fans (1 fan is exclusively for HDD cage), they can't keep HDDs temp down! HDD temps with case HDD fans hover around 40C to 46C. But with this baby it doesn't exceed 32C!

That looks like an original CM-690; the fans are all slow. Perhaps replacing the front fan with something that moves more air would help. It's hard to tell from your photos; is there space between the drives; i.e. can you separate them by another slot? I used to have that case, I think with at least three drives in it, and they never got that hot.

There are lots of space between them. Actually I limit my disks to just 2 (but I can install 3 more) mainly because of the heat issue. There are ample space between them, 1 disk installed in 2nd bay and the other installed in 4th bay. I think the space around the cabinet is too cramped and the ambient room temp hovers around 32C to 36C in my country, India.

my last pc was like the one of shriganesh [even more naked , mostly because of 2 500 Go hard-drives that were very hot , few years ago] .

i released that i was in danger of an electrocution or an accident with one of my cat , and then i started to build watercooled one .
wish you the same shriganesh ;']

beside that , you should install the hard-drives in the 5 1/2 slot and use a old-cpu fan to "airflow" them
or may be start using ssd that have lower prices now .

@jcgeny
Thanks for the info. Which water cooling solution are you using? And does that contain blocks for HDD cooling as well?

many cases are made for watercooling , i use mostly zalman , i started with a Zalman LQ1000 [in it , there is the still working mainboard that was in the naked case : a msi7366 with nvidia chipset and a core duo at 3 ghz with 4 Go of ram . i add pics of it
the "loop" is passing by : radiator -> pump -> chipset -> ram modules -> videocard -> cpu -> psu

after that i used 2 ZM-GS1000PLUS-BLACK with a tyan s7025 and a sabertooth x79 but may be you will like mountainmods .

a good webshop in the usa is : performance.pcs.com ; i also buy in europe at aquatuning.fr and directly to koolance.com or ekwb.com .

watercooling is very good for reducing the number of fans in the case , it reduces a lot the heat of everything . during the night the water is cooling down . that makes the pc ready to restart and work all day again without troubles , so you should think of having a big radiator as your weather is very hot all time . some are using cars ones ;'] .

here are some links for hdrives :

@jcgeny
Thank you so much for sharing those pics and links! I could have afforded those some time ago (read: before marriage) but not now
