cooling products - best bang for buck
Okay, I kinda stole this from the other thread floating around...ehh, oh well...
When it comes to cooling, what kind of product is the best bang for you buck. I'm on a budget, but I defenitely don't want to burn up all this money I'm spending. Water cooling, eehhh, I don't know. Not so sure because it sounds really expensive.
Will just the normal items suffice? Shields, compound paste things, case fans? I know a guy who created his own duct out of semi-thick plastic and made it come through the front of the case, over the drives, across the video card, across the processor and mobo, then out through the power supply. It looked pretty cool, but I don't know how effective it was.
So will fans work, you think? Or are more precautions needed?
