Computer Case: Off or on?
My comp pulls alot of juice off my power supply.
3 GHz Pentium IV
4 GB RAM
X800 GTO 256 MB
So as you can imagine it heats up really fast. So anytime I play a 3D game I hear the loud fans whirring. So is it better to have my computer case off or on?
When I do take the case off the fans return to their normal state almost immediately. But I heard that taking the case off stops the airflow over components that don't have their own fans.
Can someone tell me if it's better to have the case on or off? Or if it is even safe?
