Interesting product from Macase.

I could not grab hold of one so I got 2 heatsinks from my old 486s and placed it on top of my drive. Placed some 60mm fans on top of from other junkies, and walahhh--got an HDD cooler. Although it can't cool as much as THAT DEVICE, it works fine. And I didn't spend anything, except for going through all the junk.
I would never have thought of putting cooling equipment to work on a hard drive. Would it make the data transfer any faster I wonder?
Cooling the graphics card after its been tweaked is a very good idea though, as at the moment the card is running hotter than the cpu.
Does anyone know of a mail order place in the uk where I can get hold of the better cooling equipment because all I can find is the standard stuff.
but you can get an old 486 heatsink and install a fan and to replace your original vid card heatsink. It shuold run cool???
Cheers DexMax, i'll try that. I might just try the fan attachment to the origional heatsink first though to see if it works.
That would be great. But I'm not very sure it will fit. Besides, heatsinks that come w/ fans are designed for forced convection, and those w/ no fan are designed for natural convection. When the fan blows on your orig heatsink, the passage would be conjested. Although it would be cooler than it was, but the fan(air) wouldn't be very efficient, in terms of heat rejection. But it'll work!!!
Here's another project I'm getting to be starting. I am taking off my K6-2 heatsink and will be pasting/glueing/attaching 2 486 heatsinks on two opposite sides w/ the 486 heatsink base on the K6-2 Heatsink sides, not the exhaust/outlet sides. I will be attaching fans on the 486 heatsinks w/c the exhaust is parallel to the amd heatsink.
There would be a total of 3 heatsinks w/ 1 fan for each heatsink. A total of 3 CPU fans.
I got lots of 486 heatsinks. Bought a dozen for a dollar.
