If I do my job correctly it'll run ambient +10C at most.

I'm going to either modify existing heatsinks or build 'blocks' that allow me to 'connect' the cpu/NB/videocard to the case , thermally.

I think the hard part will be the PSU.

It's quite possible the heatsinks in a PSU are 'live' or 'not-grounded'......this presents issues for easy thermal connections.

------

I'm updating windows right now , should have the MO software in soon , and thus self-monitoring for the hardware.....

-------

I'm going to the scrapyard tomorrow to look into steel boxes.

I have a question how the hell do you find a scrapyard? lol I'm in Montreal and wouldn't mind finding something relatively close to see what i can tinker with....

and if you do have problems with temps you could always do a normal water cooling loop and just run the rad externally and seal up the tube holes with some caulking (you should have plenty of that from this guys big brother lol)
