I got a new pc from work, and I'm trying to think of way's to silence it. Actually, it's not a new computer, rather an old P3 600 compaq small factor pc. The only fan in the case is the one on the powersupply which is a bit loud. The cpu is passivly cooled, and get's pretty warm under load. (I'd like to change that as I can't really fold as is)
Here you can see an image of the case. The yellow part is the fan on the psu, the red thing indicates where the processor is. On top of the cpu is a tray that turns up. The tray holds the hardisks and cd-rom, and there is only a really small gap between it and the heatsink of the processor. The blue cross on the rear end seems like a logical place for a fan, but the motherboard hosts all the pci slots just there, so I can't really put a fan there either.
Under load the processor temps immediatly jump to over 60, and I have'nt had the nerves to see how high they could end up climing to... Is this a lost cause, or do you think something could be done about it?
