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;-)

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!!!!!!!!!!

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