    so, to save money on the air conditioner, I have a 120mm case fan on my desk blowing at me.
    would you call that ghetto? :D

    o shi... I can stick an HSF to my forehead!! ah but I don't have any spare

    no pics, gutter, but I can desribe very vividly for you. just imagine a black wooden desk . . . upon it is a 120mm fan pointed directly at my searing soul . . . the sucker spins quietly, pushing a gentle breeze helping me to keep from overheating (if that happens, I lock-up in a coma or crash to floortop). oh and it's connected to the rear molex port on the back of the power supply.

    that is such a visual... but a dang good idea vampy, I am tempted to having one for myself lol think 5 tornado jet engines blowing your hair back like you are in a picture shoot as you pose for someone on web cam haha....

    on a scale of 1 - 10 how well does it cool you off? especially in intense gaming lol

    it's actually pretty decent. not like a normal room fan, but does help still.
    I idle at 98.3ºF, and I'm at 98.9ºF load . . . was 99.2ºF load before.

    Put a thin filter on it and you have a ghetto air-purifier as well. :D

    hehe that's like my old make shift PC case air conditioner. Invloving two 120mm 5700rpm fans (loud, pushing 430CFM of air) and two tumble dryer air ducts connected to the case and hanging out of the window. Obviously only works during winter :D

    gone one better, go find an old cylinder style fan and put it on top of your case..lol. I found one at a used electronics parts store to cool telephone exchange cases, it moves air very very efficiently..lol

    it crossed my mind...you could add a heatsink under it and attach heatpipes from heatsink to your ears&forehead, this should keep you cool ;)

    the point of ghetto is to spend as little money as possible ;)
    the most I'd consider doing is upgrade to water cooling . . . buy a little squirt bottle, fill with water and spray on me every now and then . . . .
    increases the cooling potential of the fan by a lot!

    Don't laugh, me and some buddy's a couple years ago were bumming around Wasaga beach and went into this dollar store and picked up these neon green visors that had fans in the brims to blow cold air down over your face, only cost a buck, plus another buck for some AA batteries.
