I was wondering how many fans a pc may have? I think i have now 6 or 7 fans installed, just found two fans of my dad's old computer in the basement so i thought with my new power supply for my 8800 gts 320 i wanna give it a go. So is this allowed? 7 fans in a computer casing (the casing isnt able to close anymore ;))

You can basically go fan crazy in a PC as long as you have enough places to plug them in, mount them, and enough power, though they're low voltage, so the latter isn't too big a deal. There are even custom mounting rails you can get that mount on the IO slot to aim them right at the video cards. It's good to consider pass through air flow and try not to disrupt it though. IMO an ideal case/fan setup involves equal inlet and exhaust flow, a directional air path that's uninterupted by turbulence, and ideally dust filtration as well. It doesn't make a whole lot of sense IMO to have a side fan blowing on the MB when it disrupts the front to back flow. It may lower the temp of that which it blows directly on but it can also raise the case's overall ambient temp by stagnating exhaust flow with the turbulence it creates. It's good to try and have cool air inlets and hot exhaust too, typically low front inlet, and high rear exhaust. Some cases use spearate chambers that each have pass through ventilation though which don't need a low/high airflow.

What about it? You've got a sensor that's probably misreporting its identity to SpeedFan. If it were that hot, it'd be dead.
