Cheap As Free Air Cooling Mod

Working in a Lab for a few years, I got to see some great machines and innovative cooling techniques for high-powered equipment. One of the guys I worked with designed very high-powered water-cooled electromagnets. The guy was a wealth of information about air and water cooling techniques.

His greatest lesson was about "Volume vs Flow". The key principle in cooling something is to have as small a cooling Volume as possible and as great a cooling Flow as you can manage. By limiting the volume of cooling fluid (air or water), you concentrate the coolant on the hot stuff.

"The case temp dropped to 31ēC and the temperature of the CPU dropped to 43ēC. WOW! "

from 67°C without the duct

Fully in agreement; problem is every case; mobo is different. And, there will always be "bad critics"

I know it works; I've done it.

Added:

Done the top part as illustrated; the lower portion is a different story. My problem is routing the "hot air" to the rear exhaust with AGP getting my way; unless it is a Lian-Li.

Then, you will have morons saying it looks sh_t.

Well, it's a good cooling mod and if you would spend some time you could realy make it look awsome. Tough, it won't work with every mobo because of the damned ATX cable. I think I'm going to give that a try (if I have the time for it), to further increase the cooling capabilities of my SLK947U
