That's exactly what I do, the comp in my sig runs nice and HOT! Always has, hottest room in the house regardless of what I try, about to order some AS3 and see what that does, and then order an AX-7, and a panaflo 80mm, just gonna keep toying with it until I have it right.
if you pplz have athlon computers, i advise you to leave your case open because the athlon burns up very quickly especially if you dont have ac on in the summer. if you worrie about dust. it goes into your comp with or without the case on, just dont drink next to your comp. I have an athlon computer too and after doing this, my computer is running smooth without any freezing problem now
CPU receives direct airflow from AC duct with fan and another duct.
This provides great cooling to CPU and since the air that comes from ac can go down to like 12 degrees Celsius the room temp does not affect CPU temp as much. I don't keep my case this way all the time since it can get quite loud. With this setup and Volcano 7+ at high, CPU can be at 35 degrees when fully loaded
I direct the air-con at the CPU tower. It's not left on like that all day long, I do switch it off from time to time and back on again. It *does* seem to help. My room temperature is usually around 27 degrees celcius average and higher, without the air-con on.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
