About a year ago I wrote about how I solved the problem of my HTPC overheating. Well, after recently upgrading RAM to 4GB it seemed like a good idea to come up with a better solution. So I did.
Mod #1: Cable ties! The existing fan was perfect so I used cable ties to attach it to the heat pipes.
Fast, easy, neat and works like a charm!
Mod #2: Case fan also needed silencing. On the first try I used a thermistor. Have yet to see, if this is a satisfying solution.
