wait how did u guys start talking about fish here?
it was Praetor, he began talking about fish until I began to smell the vinegar and chips. EH
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

Whoa whoa lets not get too far off topic --- take it to Safety Valve if you want to do that kinda stuff.
hey my comp lets out alot of hot air...as i said b4 all my fans are blowing out...if i switch a couple of them it would make it put out less hot air rigght?
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).
haha so if i turn some of the fans around, my room wont be so hot from my comp?
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.
well i have 1 fan on top 1 on the side and 2 on the back....and my powersupply has a fan the sucks from the inside and blows out with another fan on the outside...so anyway i was thinking about just turning the middle one around
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 dont have a fan in front, and some1 said it doesnt pay to put it in. also i only have one side fan, so ill switch it
I kinda agree ... often people block the front intake anyways so either it brings in dust or it doesnt bring in anything
Here is an interesting web site with some crayz ideas on cooling.
Crazy is the right word but oh so very kewl!
Regarding the aquarium... for those who arent so keen on submersion cooling hehe
Praetor the sad thing is, if they really made that...i would buy it so fasst!!!! lol
