    Default A/V cooler


    I'm looking at getting a fan or some kind of cooling system for some of my gear and came across the Antec cooler. Does anyone have any opinions on this for cooling purposes?

    Is the ole Onkyo beginning to generate some heat ?? I know your in Korea, but Radio Shack carries several "computer cooling fans" which are extremely quiet and move a good deal of air, this should resolve your "heat" problems.

    Actually the Onkyo was fine before I moved into an actual stand. Now it only has 1/2" on the sides and 2" on top. I think any A/V would be sufficating in that space.

    I don't know brands, but I know tons of people use computer fans, like Rizz mentioned. I'd bet a bit of googling would turn up 3-4 brands people have had good luck with.

    All this stuff is made in Korea, homank. You just need to find the right factory and slip somebody a fiver.
    Display: Panasonic TC-P54G10
    Receiver: Onkyo TX-NR1007
    Blu-Ray: Panasonic DMP-BD60/Sony PS3
    Speakers: DefTech Mythos 6, 9, 6; BP1.2X; SuperCube III
    Vinyl: Michell GyroDec SE, Ortofon Red, Parasound 2100, Acurus A150

    Hi guys,

    The quietest and most reliable PC fans I have found are the Pabst fans (no, no relation to the beer-maker). I use two in my PC and literally cannot hear them at all. This is the place where I bought them and some other very quiet parts for my PC. They sell all sorts of very, very quiet fans.

    Yours,

    David

    If you wish, I could buy one locally and send it to you, just say the word ?
