now i have upgraded to one awesome fan. this fan was
raped from an old air conditioner. the CFM is INCREDIBLE
and there is almost no noise. I am very pleased with my find.

my old setup was just with PSU exhaust and 2 80mm fans.
1 intake, and 1 exhaust. with the big 520mm white on my
system dropped 2 celcius and cpu dropped 2.

with the air conditioner one my cpu dropped a whopping
6 degrees C. and it's hot in my room. i talked my parents into
getting me a AC wall unit. then ill blow really cold air and drop
another 4C hopefully.

I Love it!

Do you have the panel on the far side removed? If not, I bet a dollar to a donut that if you took it off, your temps would go down even further.

Didn't you forget something? Where is the shroud? This
is supposed to be an all-in-one for LAN parties, right? :D

I like that 520mm fan and blower unit, and neither robs from your psu either!:D
Keep up the alternative thinking, you never know what can be dreamt up... :D

I think you should duct the A/C fan on the the left side panel and then Build a shroud on the the Box fan an attach it the the right side of the case. You will have a push/pull configuration with god knows how many CFM. Box it all up pretty and buy a fork lift to bring it LANs. LOL

What do you think?

thanks guys, i glad yall like it.

hey king B, that aint such a bad idea. maybe id get a smaller
cube fan and drill it into the other side of my case. then have
like a lock in shroud for the A/C cooler. that would be awesome.
