    I've got the issue of MaxPC with the aquarium. It was a college girl and she built the whole thing from scratch using angled aluminum and plexiglass. It was basically an aquaruim split into two compartments lengthwise with the front half being the aquarium and the back half housing her PC components. Pretty cool being able to watch the fish as well as your PC working behind them :)

    I found a web site that has listed numerous ways that one can cool their over clocked systems, but they failed to answer the all-powerful and ancient mystical and cryptic question? Are the fish in the Aquarium available prey? If ones system gets soaked and cooked [bold]Does this mean we're going to need tartur sauce instead of vinegar? LOL

    Just like they used to do when they resuscitated someone who stopped breathing. In comes the good air (cool) and out goes the bad ai (hot).

    It's possibe but it might play havoc on your hard disk, CPU, memory, and video card. All heat sensitive and all susceptible to failure when over heated. Especially your hard disk (heats the number one cause of failure.

    In general, have your front fans act as intakes and your rear ones as exhaust. With respect to the side fans, depending on the presence of AC and cool breezes you may choose to either have them as intakes or exhausts. If you have more than one side fan on the same side make sure both are either intakes or exhausts.

    I kinda agree ... often people block the front intake anyways so either it brings in dust or it doesnt bring in anything :)
