Idle my cpu temp is 95f and case is 98f, it only has 2 fans, 1 fan on the cpu and one on the graphics card. Is this a good temp?? I was thinking about putting a fan on the hole on the back of the box and maybe fit a pci fan in to cool the graphics card more...is this a good idea, or am i wasting my time?

Hey,

The temp seems ok. Like R machines says an exhaust fan wouldn't do any harm. Again it depends what you have in the case and if it's cramped inside or not. The general rule of thumb is that the exhaust should exceed the intake. So if you have an 80mm fan for intake you should try to have a 120mm or 2 80mm fans for your exhaust. If you want to post what you have in the case and what kind of case you have I can tell better.
