I want one, in 120mm and 172mm trim. Nice design. Always knew the dead space of the motor was stupid. Servo motors in RC vehicles use the same principle. They're called coreless motors, more torque than regular motors.

wait till you see the price for something like that. Though, since you only need one for a CPU it might be worth it but I bet it's going to be fairly steep for a while.

Fans aren't too expensive in the first place compared to how much we pay for hardware and decent cases. They should help out a good amount for CPUs because the majority of the heat is in the center and the motor is right there on top of it.

If you could get a descently powered fairly quite fan that efficiently removes heat from a good heat sink then 118 w pelts might actually be feasible. Interesting to see how well the fan performs on a quality heatsink.

It all depends on the cfm and backpressure power. If it has more torque it'll keep closer to it's rated cfm. It'll be very interesting to see the specs on it.
