    USing nature to cool your pc!

    1.Ok first you will need a window in your house near your 2.computer fan (high speed recommended)
    3.A air duct (the round stuff)
    4.A hole on top of your case (you can use the front fan to.
    5.Just connect all of then together and then Viola! You have a natural air cooler.

    I thought of this because I just wanted to open my window and I saw my MOBo temp was 50F! Or maybe it was 60F

    Thatís cool!! And with the wind thatís out side now Imagine that possibilities

    I'm not laughing. I've seriously thought of drilling a hole in my closet wall with an air duct (like a clothes dryer one) and having it connect to the fan on the front of my box to suck in cold air. I run my box in the closet and the closet boarders the garage which stays cool all year around (really cold in the winter) and would be perfect for something like this.

    That sounds very cool and i myslef thought of that. But what about a bad rain storm. Cant water find itself in there. We just had a bad as hell storm with 60 mile winds that took out 3 cars on the lot from a pole that got ripped from the ground. Like a dumby i left my window open but no water came close to the computer. But ur are right the wind realy cooled the hell out if it. My mobo was reading about 40 f to after that. Thank go no water got to it.

    If you do put a hole in your wall just make sure it "leans" down towards the outside. Water usually dosen't flow upstream.

    A smaller fix would be... Radio shack sells a "tube" type of setup for using through a wall when you want to run antenna wire through a wall. It's only about 1inch diameter but it could be a start?
