Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
I first found out about SETI@home while watching an episode of 'The Screensavers' On TechTV [now G4]. I quickly got online and volunteered my computers processing power to the coolest program, project, or task ever, the search for the truth. I later joined projects that focus on cancer research, aids, proteins and math.
As of August 2014 i am running BOINC on my Android Phone which has a dual core Qualcomm ARM CPU that i configured to run 100% of cpu time when plugged into a charger. To keep it cool and happy i modified a cheap 5 dollar protective case by cutting a 35mm round oppening close to the cpu and screwed on a Noctua 40x40x10mm fan model:NF-A4x10. I am able to power the fan and phone with a dual port usb charger since the fan runs at 5volts. As of September 2nd 2015 i am running BOINC on my Lenovo Y40-80 laptop with Intel i7 5500U CPU and Radeon R9 m275 GPU which i configured to run 100% of CPU and GPU time. To keep it cool and happy i removed all the plastic vent cover material on the intake as well as on the exhaust. I screwed on a third blower fan made by AC Infinity model: Multifan S2. It is a 140mm USB fan with a 4 inch by 1 inch outlet. It blows air across 3 Enzotech pin finned copper heatsinks which i attached directly over the CPU, GPU and Mosfet heatplates and heatpipes by using Arctic Silver Alumina 2 part Adhesive. My next step is to find and screw on rubber feet with a height of about 1 and 1/4 inches tall on each bottom corner. I love modifying my devices.
