Ya I unfortunately don't have this kind of option. I made my rigs all pretty like, so I wouldn't want to throw them in a garage anyways.

I got 2 i7 and 1 GX2 and the room temp get high to. But they are both in the basement (go go man cave !) and case less. By putting them on a ''rack'' out of a case, the temperature got down a lot.

edit : just realised I never did put a picture of it !

Yep.....heat can be an issue.

I actually run my 3 main folders in a different room.I bought 'extensions' for all the wires , and ran em through a hole in the wall.

I'm very close to setting up something like boggtrotter......my garage is unheated and always cold too....

I will be looking at my garage for at least one folding rig. Last summer it got too warm in my basement which is supposed to be our cool space on the hot summer days. Maybe the dog will have to move out of his house this summer for the other rig.....

I think it is time I rethink my folding systems again

Think I should just ditch the fancy cases, buy some tech stations and throw them in an unused bedroom.

good for temps overall but i still like to have protection for my systems. if you want to go at it,my way of course, would be cases with no top fans i ncase something spills on them(be it dust or dirt or screws or liquid)

Well my systems would be placed in a room I don't use. Then just run PS2/USB/DVI cables though the wall. It sure would help on my ear drums. I have 3 45dB fans, and 5 37dB fans going. After a few months it is really starting to annoy me.
