    Morning all!

    I've just switched my system into an NZXT Hush and while it's really quiet the cooling's not especially fantastic, should I replace the two 120mm fans that come with, was thinking about a couple of Noctua NF-P12's?

    Also i've just put a Thermalright HR-03-GT on my 8800GT (with 80mm fan pointed at it) and again the cooling's not quite up to what I was expecting, it get's up to near 70c when gaming which is little improvement over the stock cooler. I haven't tried it with Crysis yet (I'm scared! :p).

    I may have buggered up applying the thermal paste tho so would that make much of a difference to the cooling?

    Alot of questions I know but I'm still quite new to all this!

    Thanks in advance for any replies! :)

    I think it may be the other way round, I may have put on too much! Also I don't think it was distributed very evenly, if it's likely to be causing higher temps than should be I'll try reapplying it at some point in the week.

    Thanks for the fan recommendation!
