OK, I finally toned down my buddies computer. We re-fanned the heatsink with a Panaflo + homebrew duct, and suspended the hard drive. Check it out at my home page...

Sorry dbri, we didn't do before/after testing. Bad. The thing wasn't burning up with the noisy small fan it had before, and after our mod we checked that it was running reasonably cool too. The big gain was significant noise reduction at very little cost. A "Yes you can use that Panaflo here..." sort of project.

That homepage made me happy! Just to my taste to use tape and an old plastic bottle. I made my own duct out of a hard sheet of paper and ugly cheap no-good tape - yours a real looker compared to that. Gotta get back in there...

I don't think it looks that bad, and it's really inventive. You should right a letter to the Heinz Co, now they have 58 varieties.

And the famous Adda fan out back, just like mine.

Did I sell you that fan!? If so, who knew it would be used like that...

I don't remember, to be honest hehehe.
