    Extra Digi Dice cooling

    Last weekend i as at a local LAN where my Dgi Dice over heated like hell! the CPU maxed out at 70c (it's a 2.8 prescott). any way i was wondering what extra cooling could i put in it with out cutting blow holes etc (voiding the warranty).


    Can any one recommend some thing?

    When I reviewed the DigiDice a few years back at release, I was extremely impressed by it - apart from the awful noise it made and the cooling that didn't result in.

    I can't remember exacly how much room there was inside it (long time ago) but you could try trying to fit another as I recon that heatpipe thing isn't very efficient.

    there is enough room for an extra cooler in the 5 1/4 bay and a PCI slot fan but i was wondering if any one knew of any good bay coolers, besides the generic 3 4 cm fan cooler (which can get noisey). i don't want anything like an areogate etc as i control the fans with a built in fan controller.
