Printer a fan shroud to use, am going to cut down the screws and install it. Saw some discussion here: https://smallformfactor.net/forum/threads/dan-a4-sfx.12462/

And some research says it should get me a couple of degrees. Will likely swap out 24 pin ATX cable for better airflow, and turn off PBO - though 95C for this CPU seems not unreasonable (Cinebench hits this in the last 3-4 mins of its run)?


Am I missing anything obvious?
