Just made an AV rack inside a larg(ish)cupboard to hide away all the TV kit. - couple of receivers, PS3, DVD player etc. Looks nice but given location of kit I'm thinking it may get warm(er) than is normally suitable for electrical kit.
Its made from MDF so am thinking about putting 2 or 3 12V PC fans on the top of the unit and drilling airflow holes down through each shelf- the idea being it will draw in cooler air from the bottom and exhaust from the top. Could even install a vent cover in the cupboard door to draw in cooler air from the main room into the cupboard ?
I'm thinking of using a fan controller such as the following and would insert this kit into the rack - http://www.computerlounge.co.nz/comp...p?partid=10100
Where would I pickup the temp guages that plug into the controller and how would it be powered. Would I simply plugin a 240 to 12v converter from DSE etc, power up the controller unit and plug said fans and temp guages into that?
Just keen to get all the ducks in a row before i build and wire the kit together. Any other ideas appreciated.
