Cooling and ventilation

 

Due to the enclosed nature of the cockpit, a ventilation system plays a rather important role, especially when you use two heat-producing graphic cards and three monitors. The computer is cooled by an effective liquid cooling system. Moreover, the side covers have been removed and an additional two-fan ventilation system built. Apart from the computer fans, the cockpit is ventilated by four fans, three of which work simultaneously in ventilation ducts.

The cost of construction of the whole cockpit is estimated at ca.$4000.
