    Preparing for summer

    Decided to get off my butt this Memorial Day and whip out the Dremel tool.

    The case on the left, I installed a 92mm blowhole on top (Delta that pushes 58cfm) and a 120mm on the side (Delta that pushes 130cfm). I used the 7 volt trick on the 120mm fan so that it doesn't over pressurize the case.

    The case on the right, the space is too narrow for a 92mm blowhole so I put 2 80mm fans on top (generic fans pushing 34cfm each) and a 92mm on the side. (Delta 58cfm) Hopefully combined with the fan in front, intake/exhaust will be about even.

    Just go to an auto parts store and look for the door edge guard stuff. Comes in all kinds of colors too.

    Sleep? What the hells that? Oh, you mean that valuable period of time that detracts from 'puter time. Who needs it.

    Thanks.
