    Now here was a fun little project that did not take much time at all and should help keep my Coppermine a little bit cooler than the norm. I was ready to ditch a crappy hard drive cooler that was pulling cool air into the casa, basically worthless in my book, as you will here KYLE of the HardOCP.com say time and again. The cooler actually had 3 nice little 40mil fans on it. I gave 1 fan to my roommate Terry Driggers to put on his newly aquired Hercules Prophet Geforce2 GTS, much better than the stock fan.

    PROJECT SLOCKET:oca fame) had already put a nice little 50mil on his slotket and I decided to do something a little bit different. So with 2 fans left from the harddrive cooler. Here is what we made.

    These are the tools that were used to do the JOB. The old 40mm hole saw purchased in a kit for $6.96 at Lowes Hardware.



    Here is the drill we used. A 1/3 horsepower Black and Decker. Very nice.


    Here you can see the back of the sloket with 2 newly drilled 1 1/2" holes.


    This is the back side with the cute little 40mils mounted with some good ol' radio shack 2sided tape.


    Here is the finished product with a nice top/side and side view. Nice huh??


    This is a full blown pic of the entire unit that I just did not have the heart to thumbnail. Sorry for you folks on dial-up, I know this page will take a few minutes to download.

    Here are some pics with the Processor and Sloket installed in the Casa.


    Now as far as the technical specs of this project?? Well, I do not believe it is helping me keep this processor very much cooler, i'm guessing 1-2 degrees at the most. But the Coolness factor cannot be ignored!! Thanks for all the peeps checking in on this project.
