    I have an east/west sloping roof
    It's also very drafty all the time, as there are gaps right the way along the roof just under the eaves.

    loft spaces do tend to get hot in summer and cold in winter, but it should still be doable.
    you could consider making a case get a motherboard tray, some mdf and half a doesen high air flow fans.
    your case will sound like a vacume cleaner on steroids but it'll be in the loft

    I have a Stacker 810 which I'm going to be using. With 3 120mm fans on the front, an 80mm exhaust on the top and a 120mm and two 80mm exhausts at the rear.

    Re: Experience with server cases

    Well in the last couple of days I've cut a hole in the partition wall between me and the 'useless triangle' in the roof space. I've simply put my watercooler in there (self contained koolance exos) temps seems to be down about 15c at the moment, will give it a proper test tonight when it goes cold. In summer I'll pull it out and back in the room.

    Keep on with the project!

    If I can fit it through the attic hole. I've not actually tried yet!

    Still need to get an electrician up there.

    I need to split the Coaxial which runs across the loft and down into the lounge to the TV, so I can stick the modem up in the loft too.

    Does anyone have any Coaxial cable crimp tools that I could borrow for the weekend?
    I'd pay postage both ways!
