    Mod a voompc (v1) to act as heat sink?

    Hey,

    I have a VIA M10K MB M@-atx and a voompc v1.

    Is it possible to make the Voompc case act as a heatsink for CPU, north and south bridges of the M10K?

    I dont want to replace the CPU fan, maybe side mount it?

    My carpc is going to be in a enclosed section of my boot and just worried about temps. Plus it seems a waste that the voompc is 5mm alu but cant be used as a heatsink.

    Cheers
    TB

    no idea's?

    I was thinking maybe change the way the MB plate slides into the case and instead screw it in from the base then add some sort of aluminium "block" so that the north/south and CPU heatsinks push against that block that is then secured to the case. The cpu Fan is side mounted and blows across the cpu heat sink and twards the right of the mb (further cooling hte north and south bridge)?

    comments?
