Fan placement on case and screens!
Im not sure if I am posting in the right area. Kinda has to do with fabrication, if not, moderator move me to were I should be.
First off, have to say that most of you guys are awsome with the fabrication you do, i wish i had those same skills. I have to have people do everything for me, when it comes to that.
Anyways, I have a PC case, a Morex 2766, which supports 2 PCI devices, via a dual riser.... Pictures at bottom of page. I basically took everything out of the case that had to do with the HD, I also ripped out the PCI slots. I did this to fit the OPUS 320 in that area. I am now confused at how I should cool the case. On one side there is a pre installed fan that blows air into the case. I tried adding some directly on the other side, but they will not fit. I decided I am going to cut a hole in the case cover and put a large fan over the area of the OPUS 320. What I want to know is should I have the fan blowing air into the case, or drawing air out? If drawing air in with the big fan, should I reverse the preinstalled fan to draw air out, and if draw out with the big fan, should I have the pre installed fan draw air in.
I have 3 Lilliput screens. Two are in sun visors, and 1 will be installed into the dash. I noticed that all 3 screens seem to get fairly warm, due to the CCFL lighting. How should I go about cooling these screens. All three screens will be installed 100% completed, in their original casing. Is there a specific place on the screen i can install a cooling fan, and should it draw air in or out. I installed the screens into the sunvisors and the Lillis' got red hot. So on one visor I cut a hole near the top vent of the lilli and a bottom vent on the lilli and had a fan at each vent blow air in.... It kept most of the screen cool, but at the bottom it was still red hot.... what can I do to properly cool these screens.
How my case looked when i bought it:
Here is how my case looks, I would like to place a large fan right over the OPUS, but which way should the air blow, in or out?
Here is the screens, should I maybe cut out the backs of the sun visors and drop the screen lower so the back of the Lilli is open to the air and the top of the Lilli is flush with the sun visor casing? Also how should I cool the Lilli for the dash?
I would appreciate any help, I really want to insure proper cooling. i dont want to overheat anything.
