    Unhappy

    I know a lot of you folk know about this... You guys are REALLY smart! So how could I remove a CPU fan from a Dell Dimension XPS D300? I'm getting rid of it soon. (though it is what I'm using now...)

    Heyo litopsguy! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    I made this diagram for my friend greg when he asked me what i did in my highland nep terrarium. Anyway, it really isn't that complicated, although hiding all the wires is. You can get most of the stuff that you need at radioshack, although it might be a little expensive there. I suggest that you forget about the fan in your dell though, since brand new ones are fairly cheap ($10), and they're more efficient than used ones(not to mention that they're also a lot more silent). I'm no wireing wizard, but this has worked for me so far without a problem. The only "real" problem is finding a way to cool the terrarium down to 50F without using bottles of ice!

    You can put the whole thing on a timer to make it automatic too, although I have the fans running nonstop.

    Really, you shouldn't remove the fan - the CPU needs it! Even if you're selling it/getting rid of it, the next person will need it. I've seen the price of a new one as low as $3 (Fry's Electronics). I added a heat sink (flat metal thingy it slides into) so I could stick it directly onto the glass. You get less air that way, but it sucks it in and sends it up and down instead of forward - depends on how you like it. I didn't want it blowing my fog into oblivion, so having it push it down to the bottom and up worked great. Hard to see but here's a pic.

    Well, that's just the thing that I meant. We are getting rid of it. I mean, it's what?, 7 years old!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img] It is quiet, and it works great, the computer just doesn't have more than .59 gig.'s

    Well, I'll probably get a new one, but all we have are Radio Shacks. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]
