    you know those reflective things you get for cars, to sit on your dash to prevent everything getting hot as hell? ziptie em to the outside of your windows.

    What, we had a 45C week here, worked well :D

    P.S - fans dont 'cool' anything. they just circulate air, which when it hits an object warmer than the air (such as a person) results in some heat transfer (cooling you) - which technically is not the same as a fan cooling the air, or the room its in.

    i was thinking he meant homebrew cooling in a computer kind of thing, yeah any kind of cooling device should be fine, or maybe something like a little fridge turned into a case

    right, so you're asking for cheap solutions to improve cooling for your PC.


    What thermal paste did you use?
