Got a fan controller so you can at least negate it a little?
...Yeah, I'm not embarrassing myself with pics either. I reduced my 7 computers in my room to 2 - 1 being a VM server. With that came 9 drives, 7 of which I reallocated to a 1U VM server and my desktop. So...I got drives dangling all over the place.
lol I cleaned it up a bit last nigh so it's not quite so bad. I've been experimenting w/ fan placement for the most effectiveness. This stupid thing has a BTX mobo so it's all upside down and on the wrong side and to make matters worse it has a Type1 cooler. So with that in mind, my options for CPU cooling are VERY limited unless I fab something up to use an aftermarket cooler but room is still at a premium.
I took one of the 80mm fans and used some 1.25" screws to go through the fan case and between the fins on the CPU heat sink to mimick a typical CPU cooler and it seems to have helped some. I was running 58-63* under 85+% load while Folding.
This was my initial attempt at better cooling for the proc but failed terribly . The thought was if the air is forced all the way through the fins rather than just the first .75" it would cool better.
This will give you an idea of what I mean by limited room and crappy cooling.
I'm thinkin about moving the 92mm in place of the 80mm on the CPU heatsink and gettin some Arctic Silver for it along w/ lapping the HS and CPU for best contact and heat transfer.
