Well, being a high school student, with little income, and this being my first mod, and my tools still on the way, the only thing I had to work with was a phillips, some tape and a bottle glue... but I still tried.. and it worked..

Now you see, my wireless card has a problem, after you run it for a while, it heats up and stops working too well.

My graphics card had a similar problem, and it lacked a fan what-so-ever.

I screwed a fan on to the heat sink on my graphics card... and glued a heat sink to my wireless card.

I still wanted a fan with my wireless card, so I kinda/sorta attached a fan to that too.

Oh.. one last thing, the wires were all over the place, but I didn't have cable ties, so I stuck them together with clip thingies.


Sadly, you can't quite see the new heat sink, but anyways, here's what it looks like...

sorry if the pictures are too big... I took them in smallest size, and just uploaded.

With the new fans, my computer SOUNDS like a true gaming computer... sadly it's stuck at that for a while.

Might help if you installed a case fan to the hole seen on the pictures. Though if those tweaks helped then I don't know if that's necessary :) Next job would be to buy some zip ties.
