Default Re: case cooling

Best cooling would be an active water cooling system. Instead of using a radiator it uses active cooling to cool off the water. Hmm, I'm just gonna suspend my computer in some 3He, and evaporate it, that will fix ANY heating problems, and give you a supercooled computer, which means it would be much faster without even overclocking. That'd be pricy though =/

gaming_freak..

I found to just whack as many as I can in my case, evan if I had to secure them with cable ties. My case is only supposed to support 2 (back, front).
But it's got 7 now.

Eh, I forget exactly, but it passes a current through something and all the energy moves to one side of it, leaving the other side cool. But this might be directly placed on the processor, it's been awhile since I looked into this stuff so it's a little cloudy.
