Case temps?

The temperature difference between ambient air temp and internal case temp (measured under load at the hottest location in the case, top near the front) is 9 degrees F (5C). Is this excessive?

I've been experimenting with fan placements and filters and this seems to be the best compromise, but I'd like some feedback.

Thanks all!

5C rise over ambient inside the case is not bad at all, IMHO, particularly since I gather you have a real sensor at that location, and not some mobo sensor. In addition, the accuracy of most sensor + chip combos is about +\- 5C anyway. I don't know what you are using, but I assume it is something like the digidoc?

Thanks, Gizmo. I'm using the temp sensor that came with my case. I've checked it with a digital temp probe and an a/c thermometer. The setup in my case consistantly reads 1 deg. F higher than the other two. It also seems to respond quicker.

The temps I get from the mobo fluctuate so widely/quickly I don't even look at them anymore. Too scarey!

Anyone else have an input?
