    Also the case is mounted in the glove compartment...the case is a 12 disc cd changer.
    Ever thought about turning the motherboard?

    Hmm, I'm thinkin about cooling a few other things...starting with the hard drive, then the cpu, then the chipset, and then back to the holding tank.

    an aditional power supply or somethin like that for the peltier could work.....but I would be too scared about a wire gettin cut or somethin breaking and then it shutting down and bye bye cpu...

    I wonder if I can find a small fan but something that will move some severe air...then like fabricate a tunel, and have it row low over a heat pipe heat sink, so the air will make sure to move through the pipes...and out another end....maybe...

    lol I even have my brother tryin to help me with this.

    the motherboard is tilted a little because the case is soo small, and its soo small if I flipped it upside down or anything, it would make things harder, like wires...lol...its alot to shove in this case. The motherboard is 10x7", The case is 10.5x6.5....

    Hmm, I found low provile AthlonXP heatsink/fan units, but they only provide 9cfm of air flow...I need more.

    Ok, I made a diagram of an idea. I can do a low profile athlonxp heatsinkfan unit, and then right next to it, an intake fan blowin at 40cfm and then next to that, the same type of fan for exhaust....or I could just do 2 Intake and 1 exhaust.....I wonder if I can fill up the entire back panel with 5 60mm 40cfm fans. 3 Intake and 2 exhaust...get a really nice circular patern goin on. But will I be able to power all of them...the shuttle's silentx power supply is 250W, the power supply I'm puting in its place to run in the car, is a 200W snap on...Maybe I can just wire the case fans to the 12v cable commin in. I'm gonna use a connector like what you'd see on an amp for 12v and the ignition for the ITPS. So maybe instead of wireing it to the power supply of the system, I could wire all of them except the cpu one to the 12v ignition wire. that way, even if the system isn't running, the fans will be powered.

    I also Got to thinkin, what am I gonna do about sucking in heat...When I jump into the car, the temp inside is like 100 Degrees or so until the AC gets up to full spec. then in the winter time, I have the heater on I dunno...I dont think its enough heat right off the bat, for the time it takes everything to get to the right temp of 75 degrees in the car which is normal room temp, it wont need to be really cool until after the system loads. What do you think?
