    lol actually maybe i could add something to taht idea....the main problem seems to be that the fan would not be powerful enuf to work efficently....but..what if u stacked 2 fans behind each other? the one behind would help the second one with back pressure:D

    I admire your persistence, but I don't think you are gonna get the results that I think you are looking for from that desing alone. You may want to consider an exhaust fan near your processor that would pull the "warm" air away after it has blown across the fins. This would effectively create negative pressure on the exhaust side of the fan, allowing it to more efficiently 'push' more air across the fins of the HS while the exhause fan is 'pulling' the air across the fins. Of course there is a caveat... you need to make sure that the strength and position of your exhause fan isn't such that pull air away for the fan intake for your HS. This will lesson the amount of air being blown across the HS... *the voice of experience*

    i know where to get my hands on a 150mm 240v fan that puts out a shirt load of cfm (about 230cfm off memory:?:), what if you had on of them going in to a funnel, then sit it in-front of your frount intake fan, so the cold air gets sucked in to the case (not blow with turblence), would that work?

    I guess it's pretty darn loud, but as long as it's in the name of cooling i don't care.
    Why won't it work?

    As I said before, the air we breathe is not an efficient chemical to use if you are trying to 'compress the heat out of it'

    Even an air compressor only barely changes temp when it is compressing, and decompressing air.
