Speedy 3D heeft een stukje tekst online gezet over het koud houden van je kast. Alle mogelijke soorten lucht koelers komen langs, zoals: hardeschijf, card en slot coolers. Jammer genoeg wordt niet overal even diep op ingegaan maar voor een 'newbie' toch wel het lezen waard:
The first big step in cooling your case is getting an intake fan. This fan will sit in the very front of your case, sucking in cool air from the outside of your case and dispersing it with-in. This is the first step in creating a steady airflow. The general rule of case cooling is this; bring air in the bottom front of your case, and blow it out at the rear top. Since heat rises, all the heat from your components should gather near the top, and hopefully sucked out. While the best way to suck the hot air out is creating a blowhole, most power-supply's does have a fan that sucks air out. This works well enough for the average user, and it does create steady airflow. For best cooling performance, using any fan smaller than 80mm is not recommended. Standard 80mm fans push 30 - 40cfm of air, while larger 120mm fans general push 75 - 140cfm.
[...] Cooling your case is not only beneficial to overclockers, but it can save you from costly hardware replacements and data loss due to heat related crashes. Just because you want a cool case, doesn't mean you need to drill holes left and right. Case cooling can be easy as screwing in a fan or two.
