nope you've got the recommended setup for optimum cooling, just make sure ur data cables are all secured out of the airflow path

Ask SuperXP for cooling advise. That nut case built a water cooling system & had the balls to do a review on it.

Cooling sounds good, ofcoarse you cand o more by adding a high performance HSF on your CPU rather than stock, and using AS5 instead of thermal padding.


You can also keep up with the dust so that heat doesnt become an issue later on. Any compressed air can will do(except industrial strngth) TIP: When you dust, make sure the PC is off, and make sure that you also blow in between that small opening that exposes the fan motor. As well as dust the blades of the fans. Make sure to dust absolutly everything, and I suggest you start from the top, and dust your way through to the bottom. Its also helpfull to have like a swiffer cloth at the bottom of your case r in hand as you dust so that the blown of dust goes mostly to your swiffer, and not on other components. Dont forget to dust above your PSU and your Top most 5.25in Bay.
Re-applying AS5 once a year or every 6 months is also good practice. And since the smallest tube of AS5 can cover 24 cpus (est.) you wont run out quickly.

Feel free to dust the inside of your PSU as well by blowing from the fan grill etc...

AMD cannot be held responsible for any damage done to your PC by my advice. My advice is valid.
