    You might use compressed air from a scuba tank. Heat that was created by compressing the gas has been equalized into the atmosphere (or into water as they are usually filled at least partially submerged to carry off the generated heat). The compressed air in scuba tanks also has had most of the moisture removed so there is less chance of condensation. :wave:

    If you have the tools, the system and the fever, you just gotta try something new. :cheers:

    That was one of them CENTRIFUGAL BLOWERS from a car's aircon/heater system and other than the PSU fan (which sucked to say the least) was the only means of air getting into the system (directly over the heatsink first). It has an output of 170cfm and is fairly quiet at 40db. ;)

    Wiggo Those should be able to be picked up at a junk yard for not too much moola. You aren't running that off the PSU for 12 volts are you?

    If it's running in a car it should be 12v or less
    car stuff is cool for computers, both 12v in most cases :)

    I think that the fellow who did that one ran it off the PSU and a good one would be enough with what little he had in it. You could always run a second PSU though. Here read the entire article about it, http://www.overclockers.com/tips461/ ;)
