Well done!
Remember to have some kind of sheltering outside to protect the fans so that when it rains, you can continue to use the PC.

Holmes 31" Tower Fan. Push of a button the tower rotates. Sitting on a milk crate.

I usually use a Patton fan but the motor ceased up after many years "7" of use even after oiled & well maintained.

I have all the fans of my computer running at %100 including the gpu's. How do I defeat the heat and noise? Easy I have my tower in a different room A small hole in the wall gets all my cables to the pc neatly and my temps are in the 50's at load. heh heh. I don't hear my once noisy computer anymore...and I can game in my sweats.

A lot of very good ideas here, thanks.

I was going to buy one of those fans that attach to your window, and suck the air out of the room (it's effin hot outside in S FL) I also thought about putting a dedicated small AC in there, but my community won't allow a window ac unit. I'll get in trouble fairly quick...

I've just learned to deal with it. there is a floor fan that blows air on me, and then another small one that sits on my desk.
