Re: Put ice in foil
ive never really liked the idea of water INside my case...could care less for it. i mean one bad manufacturing defect in a hose or block, or a rad with a bad solder, and POOSH....ZZZZZZT....and its $1,500 and 3 weeks away from playing your favorite video game again.
i perfer to stick to the basic fan cooling. my most favorite trick: get a cardboard box, cut a hole in it, or 2, get some dryer duct and a 24" box fan, but the box on the output end of the fan, route the exhaust hoses from the box to the front intake on the pc and the other right onto the heatsink for the cpu...only thing to watch for is when the zipties break and the cardboard goes flying. i need to add more ducts, lol.
(i do this to PC2 in my sig, it overheats...badly, on just all fans on and cpu fan, idle, the cpu reaches about 45C, and the case temp gets about the same. there is just no cooling it off. but as soon as that fan gets turned on, the whole bedroom temp rises about 5F...funny really, when its cold i just turn that pc on and open the side panel. its not a problem with the fan setup, just the cpu has a 40mm fan on it...stock from gateway. might get a p4 for it and a asus chilly vent lux)
