Cooling ideas -/w console PC; in mustang?
I've had this going for a couple years now. I've got just about everything under the sun setup with it that I set out to do, but..
This is the only lasting hurdle for this, since this is probably a faster PC than most people's desktop, coupled with being in such a confined space it's quite the pain in the *** in winter. Odd I know, summer is fine, but in winter with the heat going the console gets a decent amount of the floor heat syphoned into it, and it has nowhere to go, so the PSU and/or the MB cut-off due to exceeding their heat specs. It's quite frustrating.
I'm just wondering if any others have come across this issue and what they've done to resolve it, tubing, cutting into the car's ductwork, etc..
I've done all I could think of offhand, replaced the CPU cooler to a server based low profile 775 heatsink with blower, put a single slot fan blower over the GPU heatsink.. trouble is they really have nowhere direct to push the air to since the back is butted up against the car's firewall.
