Linus' media PC was overheating during extended gaming sessions. He decided to make a mod to his entertainment center to provide better cooling - let's see how it turned out!

I think your way of connecting the fans is less ghetto.

I liked your wife's idea better.

Wife's fan method was less ghetto and is the way I'd do it. Although I probably would have just drilled holes for ventilation and seen if that was enough... or just not put it in an enclosed cabinet in the first place ;)

wife's idea is better cuz it still gets the job done with too much hassle.  I think Linus has a tendency to overthink things.

 

That case is still going to have dust problems I think.

You said you were going to change out that graphics card when you did the review for that case .__.

probably drilling out holes in the bottom of your case would be all you need next, and of course some filters would be required for them catssss xD

@LinusTech

 

When you were talking about the V2, you said that you'd run a PWM extension from the CPU header to the external PWM hub and run another extension from the CPU cooler out to the external PWM hub. Instead of doing that and requiring two extensions to leave the case, why don't you just put a Y-splitter on the CPU fan header and connect one end to the CPU cooler and the other to the extension which leads to the PWM hub?

 

Also, just because you asked at the end of the video, yeah, I'd love to see more videos like this, it's the sort of thing that gives me ideas for what I can do in my own home and it's useful and fun to follow along. It's a bit different from the usual product overviews, so it's nice. Loved the vlog about painting the PC parts too :)

Your wife's idea was the better of the two. I may have blended them - cut the small hole in the case, then run the lead out the same way she suggested. That way you wouldn't lose the PCIe bracket security, or whatever that thing does.

Why not just watercool the whole system and put the radiator behind the cabinet?

I think your wifes ay was more ghetto, but her way was also smarter and used less effort lol
I would love to see more vlogy type videos

I enjoyed this video, interrested to more of this, specially the around 15 min length of the video, perfect for eating a light meal while I watch :)

As for the mod, I would have considered watercolling it, with a external rad you could hide behind the cabinet, this way you would export the heat all the way out of the case, also I would have mounted the screws for the fans that you installed on the bottom the other way around, so the screw heads would be flush with the cabinet floor, and not impead the computer case when you need to move it in or out, besides it looks way less ghetto. Speaking of which, your solution was better and the wife's way was ghetto, I guess I need not come around for sunday dinner at Linus' house for the next few years eh? ;)
