I'm about to put in a side blow hole in my window and just had a cpl of questions real quick.
1) I was thinking of mounting the fan more or less directly in the
middle of the window to make it look a little cleaner, and to also
get cooler air blowing over the top of my GF4 while still getting
colder air around the CPU.
2) Or I could mount the fan in the upper left corner of the window
directly infront of the CPU.

Now the HCF will be a SK-7 Sunnon 80mm Tornado (also going to
try a thermaltake 80mm just for the heck of it). Hopefully all that
will be in tomorrow.

The question is where should I mount the side fan, 1 or 2...or
somewhere else?? With the new HSF setup I should be getting
better temps so it might be better if I used idea #1 and got some
extra cooling on the GF4.

What do you guys think?
