oh btw, you should clean ur heat sink once in a while, it gets dusty, makes a big difference.

for your athlon, 50 degrees C would be acceptable for idle. But most computer will be much higher than that (60C)with 1 fan.
1 fan is not enough

that doesnt work, if you have a decent setup of fans, it's cooler with the side panal on, because it keeps the air flow better.
