How does everyone cool their PC?

Postby Dowdy on Fri Nov 08, 2002 10:41 pm

Since it's summer here now, every time i use my computer it start to lag because of the heat so i took off my tower case and placed a 15cm desk fan in front of my mobo to cool it.

How does everyone else cool their comp?

everyone has atleast 2 fans in their comp (CPU fan and powersupply fan)

If you use liquid nitrogen, i'm guessing you work for cray :wink:

Superfluid helium...runs that little P4 1.7GHz at 25GHz. :)
Just kidding...other than the PS fan, I've got 3 case fans plus 2 on the hard drives (5 7200RPM drives make a lot of heat!).
