3 fans on a heatsink
I had an idea for adding two more fans to a heatsink and was wondering if it would work or if anyone had tried it. You could make the air flow ethier way so thats why the arrows point both ways.

On my old FOP i had a 50mm fan on the side (which turns to be the bottom edge on my board) and it was set to blow in, pushing the air into the PSU and out the case. No noticible case temp drop, but dropped 2C under idle and 1C under full load (50mm inovative approx 10-12cfm)

Thanks for the replies, never thought of electromagnetic fields and the weight could be fixed by a different securing method. Anyways I wasn't realling planing on doing, just thought I'd throw it out here.

I suggest the top fan blowing down, and the two side fans still sucking, that way u will get flow not the fans working against each other trying to create a vacuum.
