Right now in Poland (while I'm writting this post) there is extreme heat outside, 28° in shade.
I have quite big passive cooling system in my PC, but I can feel heat coming from my PC and
I'm curious how you guys handle cooling your hardware using household items?

Last year I've used bottles with frozen water and I put them next to my PC on the side with vents to suck cold
and with one hour interval replaced them with others (first bottles when ice melted I put back in freezer and took anothers)
I had in total 10 frozen bottles each 0.5 liters. Results where quite satysfying, but replacing bottles becomes very snippy.

Hello! I do mosty the same as you. I've tried ice pack too :p And once, I put my laptop in the refrigerator :guffaw:
But really, my best trick is just to take regular breaks. Whenever my cpu seems to overheat, I put it on sleep mode and do something else for a couple hours.
The heat from my computer is probably a signal I've been sitting there for too long anyway... ;)

An ice pack does the job pretty well, or I put the cooling pad for laptops, but the ice pack works better. But as much as I understood, if it's heating too much then something's with the computer. One of my friends' repairs computers as a hobby, and he told me that. He recommended to check registry software and to install a registry cleaner to fix all the errors and to delete all the malicious content. I must admit I did that, but it's still heating, so I just use the iced pack to cool it down.

Lately, I've taken to smashing random nouns/verbs together as insults. It's sort of amusing how many people don't really know how to respond to that. You bottle shaker!
Would be nice to pick color code that is not exclusively for message event
The Ace attorney series are so great games... But at the same time such a travesty.
Made a video showcasing a plugin (by Lanza) that adds 5 more weather effects to our MV games. :LZYsmile: Namely:
