    I'm mortified:eek:

    But thanks to Wiggo's fast action, I was yet again completely clueless as to what is actually taking place:confused:

    no problem, you are all used to me by now:laugh:

    It's only been shear luck that I happen to have just come into the forums at the right (or maybe wrong) time lately when these things have happened. :(

    I dropped my CPU temp from 40 C down to 22 C idle, and not by Artic Silver III.:D I do use that stuff and is very good. I created a duct work for my computer case. The 3" duct (from auto parts store) goes to the outside window. There is a side case fan directly above my CPU/HS/Fan . Around that fan is a McDonald cup, cut and trimmed to allow the side of the case to slide on. This directs the outside air (outside the case) funneling down to just above the fan for the HS. Keeps it from whirrling all aound inside the case, more direction that way;)

    This worked pretty good, but I was wondering about that cold oustside air, so I built a quick-attach to the side of my case and now have the duct from an outside window going right to the case fan for the CPU air. Result is that I not only bring in cold outside air for the CPU, but I bring in fresh air from the outside and let my computer pre-warm it for us:p

    I do have a pic of this set up if any are interested.

    Sounds pretty practical to me:thumb:

    not real sexy, but practical - at least during the cooler months

    ok, this is the scene.
    i got my p4 cpu with thermal tape. This tape has kinda made me a bit of a prob.
    I took my cpu off the other day, to find that the tape is on both the cpu and the heatsink (its kinda split and cracked, probably not the best effect for some of that stuff). I am thinkin of puttin some on, so i wuz wonderin how to get it off. (both items that is)

    I sure wouldn't use tape, but a nice hand grinder will take the tape off the CPU and the heat sink.. go lightly. Or try some acetone on a Q tip.. more of a kindler gentler approach.. now for a picture of a cooler Outside temp tonight is 31.3 F and my CPU is running at 20 C.... dropped down even cooler. I can drop an extra 2 degrees C if I open up the window on the opposite side of the house. You see the air temp of -2C (now) is then really force fed into the CPU area, because I have created a negative pressure in the house and the air litteraly forces it's way into the HS area through the duct work. Makes it a bit cooler in my room though:rolleyes:
