Computer room cooling

post #1 of 33
Thread Starter 
Well summer is here, so how are all of you crazy overclockers going to keep yourself, your room, and (most importantly) your rig(s) cool?
AC is for cheaters, you have to do it the cool way with lots of crazy fans





Envy my 1337 MSPaint skills.

I have to change my fans' directions several times a day depending on outside temp and wind direction. The wind just stopped so I switched the window fan to pulling cool air in and the smaller one blowing towards the door to the hallway
I have to change the window fan from intake to exhaust several times a day depending on outside temp and wind direction. Right after taking these pics the wind stopped blowing so I changed it to pulling

It stays pretty cool down here, and it's unseasonably cool for where I am... we should be seeing 80s-90s temps but we've been below 70 and raining since the end of April. If it does heat up, well, here's how I deal with it.

I'm on the second floor so I have open both my windows for a breeze to flow through and my door wide open. That and I can have a fan blowing air in/out. Oh and my fans on my 1200 on med/high (using headphones so I don't mind the noise).

We don't have one. We have a central AC but my parents get pissed at me if I turn it on even if its 87 degrees in the living room, never mind in here with computers running.

Its cool enough in here with my fans that my cpu is at 50C folding
