Removing heat to outside - Page 2

one thing that concerns me about what you did, is that you didn't make it out of pressure treated wood, or even some kind of weather barrier like tyvek or something, what are you going to do if it rains, or gets wet.
uuummm, ply wood is pressure treated. That is why 90% of home's build in the USA use ply wood. But yes it will rot if there is standing water, just like any pressure treated wood.

This is a great ideal! How ever it would be cool to use a 3 way switch to be able to reverse the fans. It is real nice to pump out the heat, but in the winter time you might want to pump in cold air from out side. If the outside air is nice and cold it could further lower your case temp and push the warm air into the room. Depends on how hot the air is you might be able to turn out your heater while gaming.

I'd put those exhaust pipes to the 360 instead.

Couldn't help but think, would'nt it be more efficient if the fans were on the PC side of the tubing? Pulling instead of pushing the cold air into the plexi-box ?


Also been thinking of doing something very similar once my new case arrives. Very good.



Edit - Wait! Wouldn't it be better off as an intake instead of exhaust?

Not if his room is colder than the ouside. Also it would be more efficient having a fan pushing out the PC AND one pushing to outside.

How did you make it? Would be a good idea for me, but I would have to get some long tubes, and route them through the wall.

It wasn't hard to make at all. Just get some Plexiglas, plywood, 2x 120mm fans, and some 3" exhaust tubing from Home depot.

I kinds rushed though this one. Since I am building a new computer (Velocity), I will have to make another one to replace this one. My plan is to make the back board out of plexiglas. Here is a render of it.

why 80mm fans? not all 120's?

B/C, my current computer uses 2x 80mm fans for exhaust and my new build uses 2x 80mm on the bottom and one 120mm on the top.

Edit: The back of my new case, http://www.seliani.com/gaida/photos/...0/IMG_0032.JPG

In the middle of the rear, I will be removing the vent cover for the 120mm fan.

I think I may try doing something similar. My PC is right in front of my window and it usually gets really warm in my room during the summer due to all the heat my machine puts out while folding all day long.
