I have read lots of threads on cooling a computer anyone any suggestions to cool the user in 42c temperature?

hi Sapins

Is you cpu and AMD or a Pentium 4 ? because if its and AMD 42c is normal temperature so need to worry all you need to make sure you have a suitable fan

I always think a cup of tea is one of the best things to cool you down. Certainly not cold drinks.

Large block of Ice placed in front of a fan! It really does work. and as -pops- says, a nice cup of tea ;o)

Try one of those sprays used to dampen ironing (what's that I hear) and spray it across the output from a fan - it has to be on the finest setting, or one of those pump up bottles for dispensing stuff onto the roses.

It feels great and cools you quite a lot without soaking you completely.

B*gger the computer, that can be dealt with later!

Not THAT Brian May, tried the "Roses" spray, the wife says I shouldn't get greenfly now! Leaving the computer on, its cooling the room down;-)

Now I know its too hot I'm talking to myself!!

I heard that too - but i found that when i poured it over my head (as per the London Marathon) it definately made me hotter!!

I tried a couple of fans as per my PC case (one blowing in and one drawing out) but cut my tongue on the blades. Sitting down was out too.

A cool shower every 30 mins or so seems to work best....

I think scooby43 lost the plot. I have a room fan blowing warm air from the passage over my naked body (not a pretty sight)which evaporates the moisture giving the illusion of cooling, but I'm still B***** hot!!!!!!!!!!

side off pc huge floor standing fan dunno if its cooling the pc but it sure blows the dust out

We're not trying to cool the pc we want to cool the user??????????
