Yeah i got one without knowing how bad they are (before i read this forum...*slaps himself*)
ANYWAYS since the fan spins so damn fast I thought about removing it and taking out my floppy drive(which sits inbetween my two hard drives...yes i know mondo heat) and i stuck it in blowing air between the two and i left it on for an hour. I HIT 93DEGREES FARENHEIT!!!!!!! YESS!!! it spins just under 4500rpms and it moves air like a *****. My hard drives are also frosty...and hot air is nowhere to be seen in my case. I took clip off of the orb and use it as a stlyish paperweight. My mom likes it. Just so you know its an Antec orb(sez twister on the box) and they have some not so bad motors on them .Also got a hard drive cooling thing sucking air under my cdrom. Antec rules(orb ripoffs dont). Yeah its 4:32 and I cant sleep so Im just going to end this now and hop into bed. Damn im a geek.
