    Vented My PC To My Attic





    Version 2.0 could definitely be a lot better but you don't always think of everything on your 'prototype'. It would be better if I made it out of all one solid box instead of a pieced together abomination but it seems to be doing the job I have yet to go into the attic and place my hands or a temperature probe in the ducts up there and see what temps are floating around but I no longer feel all the radiant heat from this computer, the PSU was basically exhausting right toward my legs/desk area. For those wondering I have three 120mm fans that are attempting to push the hot air up through the 6'' ducts, heat rises naturally so I'm hoping that helps my cause.

    I made holes. Had this room been remodeled I wouldn't have 'ruined' it more but it's old plaster up there so I figured who cares, cutting through that and the wood lathes with a jab saw was such a mess but I'm happy with the results so far Won't be sweating too much this Summer. If I can spare money I'll be buying myself an all mesh chair as well.

    Just about, I've been with my GF for over a year and I've known her since we were 17, if there was a woman I'd marry it'd be this one. If the time does come that we own a place together she knows her place
