    My CPU core, which is a Barton 2500 that is OC'd a tad is running at 16 degrees C at the moment. I force air from the window, through ductwork to case in a hole cut just above the CPU H/S fan combo. There a fan directs the cold air, via a partial styrofoam cup taped to the side of the case to the top of the HS fan. I'm using air from the outside, which today is at 7.6 F

    Sure keeps the old CPU and case cold!

    Just had to come in a brag a bit.. haven't been in here for a day or two.:D

    Ahh.. but it alomst does. The ductwork to get the cooler outside air is simple 3" automotive ducting. It attaches to the side of my case with a home-made tri-lock system I made from left over CD pancake bulk holder. In the summer I simply drop the hose over behind my computer desk to the AC vent and the hose pulls in the cold AC air from the floor. *S*

    http://forums.tweaktown.com/showthre...&threadid=9308 Page 1 of this thread has a picture of it. No need to redisplay it here...just takes up too much space. Also How do I show the temp for the CPU in a jepg format? It's at 15 C right now, and I am running Hardware Sensor Monitor in the background and shows in the taskbar the current temp. Is there a way to save a screen shot?

    sure, hit 'Print Screen' to capture whatever is on your screen. then open your favorite photo/image editor and paste or import the image from the clipboard. Then crop it and save it in your format of choice (please don't use bmp).

    Ok, I managed to get a snapshot of the desktop with the program running showing the CPU temp. When I go to save it I had to save it as a .cpl as it is a clip board file. I cannot open it with Photoshop, ACDSee, or even MS Paint program. How do I "acquire" the image and edit it???

    Never mind.. downloaded a progarm from www.download.com that allowed me to capture my screen and save it as a jpeg.. then I used Adobe Photshop 6 to crop it and here it is... for your viewing pleasures.

    it's temporarily held in memory, so right after you press 'print screen' open M$ Paint and press ctr-v (paste) and it will 'paste' the image into Paint. It's been some time since I used Photoshop, but if i recal it's similar to Gimp, which I posted a screen shot of in my last post. Although, Gimp also offers its own utlitiy to take screen shots, which you can also see in my last post, but I was refering to 'From Clipboard'

    Don't try to open the clipboard file directly :)

    The the picture of the screen shot.. Notice the little program to the side called ScreenPrint?? That's what I used to make a jpeg of this and then crop it with an image software. Kind of nice little program.

    By the way, minibubba, I tried you way after I had posted this picture, and your way is cheap and very effective. I did as you said in paint program, saved the file as a jpeg and there it is. How about you!!! my hats off to minibubba.. I'll keep my coat on though.. it's only 7.3 F here in Fennville, Michigan. *S*
