Couple of questions regarding cooling : Firstly im obsessed ( its pushing on a geeky obsession as well ) about noise... I have now kitted computer out with silent(ish) case fans (3 of them) a zalaman heatsink and fan, and padded computer with magic fleece (sound proofing) ... I also have a nice new PSU because my other one packed in, the problem is the new PSU has noisy fans :rolleyes: Right I think! I will soon change that and purchase 2 more silent 80mm fans I rip open the PSU and get scissors and insulation tape on the ready for cutting out old fans and adding new fans... call me a wimp but i stopped and hence this post! Is it okay to just cut off the old fan wires and just tape in some new fans? (maybe solder if im feeling proffesional) Second Question : I have a large heatsink, and a fan that blows the heat from the heatsink all around my case... which i figure is a rather stupid way to cool things - overal system temperature rises, and everything gets hotter... so I get the following idea will it work? anybody tried it? any sites with info? remove heatsink fan, get 2 more case fans and connect to case so that they "extract air" run a pipe from both fans to either side of heatsink, creating a sucktion effect, which will draw heat away from heatsink, keep a constant flow of air over heatsink, and then get rid of the heat OUTSIDE the case... I would need a v.good fit around the actual fan, and a bendy pipe (maybe old hose but would need away of bringing size from fans (80mm) down to fit well over the hose... a trip to the DIY store will solve that problem im sure well any comments suggestions welcome!
