I think that both cards need a very good cooling system.

CyberStormPPC has its own fan on the PPC, and there is already a 4cm chipset cooler on the 68k, so I think it's enough.

About CyberVisionPPC, they told me to put a 3cm chipset cooler on the Permedia chip (because it gets very hot), as the other 2 little chips at the right of it.

Any ideas?

Do it! Permedia chip get hot as hell and a fan blowing fresh air onto it will never hurt.

Air flow through out the entire case is important too. Without a good air flow, any heatsink/fan combo is not going to breathe correctly.

Tbh, it would not hurt to put a suitably shallow fan on the Zorro/Mouse Port side of the case lid. That will push a nice air flow into the chassis which the PSU will then drag through. ;)

Run heatsinks on the mem chips to, and on the component above the Permedia chip, f"k, put heatsinks on every chip on the card + 30 mm fan on the Permedia. IMHO the stock A4000 gets too hot with PPC/CVPPC combo, but the speed is so nice to have :D
