I'd really like to see someone tear that thing apart and put it in a computer case... somehow. I don't see much benefit to this, but it'd be cool. Watercooling for quiet? Yes that is an interesting idea. And I even see some beneficial aspects. One could mount the insides into an HTPC-case and stack...

Not very good with regular expressions, but:

Code: Select all

sensors | grep 'CPU Temp:' | sed s/'\ \{2,\}'/' '/g | cut -d ' ' -f 3 | sed s/'\+'/''/
should work.

I very much doubt that computer ever draws over 200W. In fact, it's probably much less than that... A lot of the PSU calculator pages around the web greatly overestimate the power draw of the components, and in any case it's practically impossible to load everything at once. Not that the Seasonic wa...

Pumpless watercooling

I'm building a TEC cooled mini fridge as a school project, and I'm wondering about the possibility of making it passively watercooled--i.e. mean no fan, and no pump. This is a quick sketch I made, looks like crap but I think it shows the concept at least. :p http://rocklinger.com/dump/bilder/05-09/k...

Ya, those. The way you have them mounted they're actually touching the case, which is not really recommended. :p

You can always make a VGA to SCART adapter if you're handy enough with a soldering iron. Only works with ATI cards though.

Seperate cooling of PSU in custom-built cases

Since I'm too lazy to ever actually build a case myself, I thought I'd share this little idea with you. :) What I've been thinking about is similar to the BTX-like PSU channels, only rotated 90 degrees along it's X axis. A regular PSU duct/channel works great for fanned PSUs, but not very good at al...

The SL350S fan is rated for 41CFM at 34dBA, so the Zalman without the inline resistor would just be pushing less air with just as much noise (36.5 CFM at 34.2 dBA). An L1A @ 5V would probably be a good choise with a PSU duct, but if you don't have one the PSU'll most likely get waay to hot with such...
