But the card gets pretty hot, so it would be wiser, and your voodoo will live longer, if you have a good cooled case

erm, well, a voodoo cannot do without cooling, but as Phalanx show it can be passively cooled. make sure to have an airflow in your case if you passive cool it.

lol Phlanax. Do you have a microATX case? I have to leave all the side panels off and the power supply on top of my microATX case, or else the CPU overheats and shuts down. Like you, there is no airflow except for the dual CPU fans, but with everything sealed, the warm air just stays in the case, behind the PS where the CPU is located.

tsss, you guys... :D

i placed some casefans, run them at 5 and 7 volt, so they actually make less sound then my PSU, and my cpu stays cooler with sidepanels on then when there off....

but you are right ofcourse, when you dont have any airflow, you'd better take of the side panels...

I can't install fans in the rear, becuase of the stupid design, so air flow is impossible, unless I do something out the top, which I've been thinking about. But for now, I live with my cheap case with the sides missing.

I don't think you understand. I wish I had my dad's digital camera so I could show you, but he's away on business. The back is designed so that there is no room to mount an 80mm fan, only some really tiny ones if I wanted to take the time. The front already has a fan, with no room for a second. On the motherboard side, it is not thick enough for a fan, unless the fan was mounted on the outside. On the other side (the side you normally work in), the fan would be blocked by the V5, hard drives and floppy drive, and the power supply. The only option is to go through the top, which I have't had the ambition to try. Basically, all the heat from the CPU gets trapped by the motherboard, the back/top of the case V5, CD-ROM, and power supply, and the top of the case is the only place where this heat could be taken out from.

i used a not so technical method of installing a fan, take the door you removed to make that picture (the side panel) then grab yourself a hammer, chisel and drill. you take the fan you want installed, and trace a circle on the metal door with pencil (using the inside diameter of fan as a stencil). then you grab the smallest drill bit to fit standard case fan screws. the rest should be simple trial and error, the chisel is not hard to use, and you just drill out where the screws must go. then "presto!" instant airflow, install your DIY modified case door, (you can make the screw ups look a tad better by installing rubber molding or small weather stripping on the rough metal edges, that should more than cover the heat output of the chipsets. you could go all out and even install 2 fans (intake is suggested but in or out should probably do the trick)

hmmmz, well that is just what i did with the side panel of my Aopen hq08 aqua Big tower. but amp_man and Phalanx dont have huge towers, but small cases (amp_man has microatx) so i can imagine there isnt a lot of room to get air flowing.
what i do know: one of my 120mm papst side panel fans is attached on the outside of the panel. it has to be installed that way, or else i t would fit past the molex connecter of my voodoo5... i also had to relocate my HDD to above the PSU, or else it would have gotten in the way of the second fan... :) guess i should have bought a bit slimmer fans.,...
