Any 3rd party cooling mechanisms for I-mac?

    Seeing a ton of references to how hot everything runs for some games which are maxed out, etc. That can't be good for long-term performance, I have a Windows PC that freezes due to the components getting extremely hot.

    I just assumed from knowing how loud an old G5 I had sounded from time to time that fan support would be adequate for all Macs but then again the I-Mac is crammed into that all in one slim design.

    Any ways to cool those suckers off?

    Ok so from what I gather the only options are just software devices which control the rate the fans move, but I guess there's no way to "chill" the components manually.

    In the velcro closure of America's Hat
    CoolBook Controller lowers the operating voltage of the CPU. Aside from that, no, there are no devices that I am aware of to physically lower the temperature of the CPU.

    Yeah reminds me of the time I bought a window fan and opened a case up to try to cool off the inside. It didn't work really and the computer is still hot as heck when I push it, so I stick to my laptop mainly.
