I took the panel off and took a few photos:

I know the images are sh*t and blurry, but there's really nothing I can do about that. That's the best camera I have.

 

at this point i question how he even reached this internet page

Same.

Unfortunately, the quality of the photographs is too low to be able to glean anything from them.

 

If you have a low quality camera/phone like I do at the moment, there are two things you must do in order to ensure the highest quality photographs possible:

 

1. Make sure the subject is strongly lit--as brightly as possible. Cheap cameras can not produce details in low light situations. In your pictures, the strongest light is coming from the other side of the case, which can be discerned by the case's shadow on the wall.

 

2. Brace the camera (or phone) against something in order to avoid movement, which results in blur. I either set my phone on a surface so that it can't move at all, or if that is not possible, I use a broomstick or something else so that I can brace one end against the floor or other surface, and hold the stick and the phone at the same time. Whatever method you use, the device must be prevented from being a mover and shaker.

 

You've come this far--you might as well see if you can get a few usable photos.

I took a few photos with the LED's inside the case lit, but didn't bother posting them because I thought it wouldn't make much of a difference, here they are:

If you still can't see very much (which I don't think you can), I'll take some more photos, but that'll be the best I can do, because I simply do not have a better camera.

Trust me, assuming you hold the camera still, the pictures would look a lot better if you made sure a bright light was shining into the case.

OK, I'll take a couple more photos.

Yes, and higher. It still reaches 82. I'll have the photos up by today.

I took some photos using Dryspace's advice, and they came out a lot clearer:

I even took a photo underneath the GPU:

I hope that helps...

I'd install the fans on the CPU radiator the other way round.

I'm just saying I don't see any intake fans on your photo, and that might be the cause of the high temperatures you're experiencing,

If that's the problem then I'm screwed, coz like I said, I can't change things around.

There is one fan at the end of my case, and two fans at the front (Lit in blue).

May I ask why this isn't an option?

Ahhh it's a long story.
Long story short, if I screw something up, I don't have the money to replace it.

I would offer a suggestion: A reason why people (like my brother) want to buy pre-built computers is that they don't want to have to worry about fixing things themselves, or otherwise messing something up.

 

If you don't want to build your own computer, it seems to me that you should at least have the benefit of being able to take it to the store that sold it, or the person who built it, if something is not working correctly. It seems a really undesirable situation to have a new PC with an issue and an inability to do anything to fix it.

 

Do you not have any unnecessary items that you can sell in order to generate a cash reserve? At any rate, I hope that you can find someone who knows what they are doing and is willing to look at your PC, because that is what is needed if you can not take it to the seller and are unwilling to touch it yourself.

That is definitely the cause of your overheating problems, though, I'm sure. So you'll have to take the (non-existent) risk, if you want the issue resolved.

 

It would be less fiddly, if you removed the radiator from the case first, but judging by your pictures, it should be possible the unscrew the fans without removing it. Simply remove the four screws per fan, flip them around, and replace the screws. It will do wonders.

 

If you want to be extra cautious, power off (obviously) and unplug the PC, before getting to work. At least then, there's absolutely nothing that can go wrong.

if it reaches 82 without the side panel, you should take the pc back to the store that sold it to you, that isnt normal even if you fan curve is low

I've never played over a long amount of time with the panel off, so I wouldn't know.

There's more to it than just finance, it's a long story, and it's personal.

 

This is the end of the road, I'm gonna just have to put up with high temps.
