I recently replaced my thermaltake mini dual orb with a thermalright sk6 and it is running cooler with the case closed. However when the case is closed, weird things happen with windows (I've tried 98se and xp, both are screwed). I get to the login sometimes and then reboot or hang. Successive rebooting often fails. If I take the sides off of the case the problem goes away.
I know this sounds like a heat condition and I am going to order a rear case fan tomorrow. However, it was running hotter with the old fan and I never had these problems. It was was getting up to 145 degrees F with the old and is at 122 - 125F at peak.
Is there anyway this can be something else? No wires are getting pinched etc. ANy ideas?
BTW it's a 1.2 gig athlon 256 megs ram win 98se (xp has same probs) 300w, ge4 ti4600, 10/100 card, sb live value.
