I was lookin through this car mag when i noticed this fan that cools down car engines and push's 800 CFM of air. its 24cmx24cm

I want to know if I were to buy some PVC piping and leave one end open and with the other end stick the fan into it, would this create a windtunnel effective for cooling? Im thinking that I could mod my case so that i have this pipe running from the top down to where the cpu fan sits. Replace the CPU fan and have 800 CFM of air sucking off the heat sink straight out my PC.

Would i suck up any diod's of the motherboard.

This does sound nuts and i know its gonna sound like a car but imagine a computer cpu running @ room temps on air.

:D

Also... you might want to put up some chicken wire and danger signs around your tower. Just incase you have living animals in your house... such as cats, would be an ugly site. :p

lol @ will

Watercooling Im yet to be 100% convinced that it won't stuff-up my PC.

But yes this idea "should" be the same as watercooling.
At best this windtunnel will cool my cpu to room temps. Room temps r 20 odd degress, so im thinkin if worst comes to worst ill have a P4 2.0 @ 3ghz on air.

3Ghz asking too much from 800cfm fans?

the pressure level will probably make your heat sing collapse or explode!!needles to mention the hovering effect. my volcano 7 fugged my finger up (2 blade sheared off the fan) pretty good a few weeks ago. no blood but hurt like a bi*ch for 2 days. im over it.

24x24cm... you might need a second psu to power the thing. How about trying to overclock (increase the rpm of) the fan <g>.

Anyway, GO FOR IT. It sounds like a really cool mod to try out and see how effective it is at cooling your pc.

The fan I saw in this Mag ran on 12volts :D

perfect for this project.

Well guys i have to say IM GONNA DO IT!!!!!!!

Ill post back when i do.

1 question, what about the pressure inside the case. DO u think i would need 2 fans, 1 blowing and the other sucking?
