I personally like the console method, which I would do had I owned a Dakota. Taking your air holes idea a step further, what about not only drilling holes, but also mounting a case fan on the inside wall of the console hole to vent the hot air, powered by an extension line from the computer power supply itself. Being in the console will help minimize noise, and keep your PCs home cool to boot.Originally Posted by inaneninja
I just got back from Coachella Valley (Palm Desert) out there in Cali, and man, do I EVER want to move out there! Holy crap it was so nice the whole time. I can see a need for adequate cooling though, and depending on where you live, filtration is going to be a concern as well, (smog, sand, dust etc).
There's my two bits.
