Long story short, I've acquired a 400mhz Graphite iMac DV with DVDrom drive and 640 megs of ram... not a beast, but nothing to laugh at, at least. It's been cleaned up, resurrected from the carcass of a filthy iMac DV with horrible picture tube and 350mhz Blueberry iMac with dead video but a good CRT.
Now that it's up and running, I notice it gets pretty hot. I realise they're designed without a fan, so this is normal, but it's still hotter than I like. Gague Pro says the processor is running around 30c when taxed with a particular task, so it's not like it's really that bad; but I think the heat is what contributed to the cooked-on dirt and dust inside the case when it came into my posession... plus if it were running cooler, the analog board circuitry would still inherently last longer anyway.
Is there any way to cool these machines? Obviously I can get a large, low rpm fan and slap it onto the vents around the handle, but that's not very aesthetically pleasing.. Was there ever an attachment-fan sold that hooks onto the handle area or something, like the old add-on fan for the early macs:
