    so what happens if you were to reverse the fan's direction ? ie: have the hsf "sucking" the air out of the heatsink ??
    :rolleyes2 :?:

    well that would work too........but when your really hot during the summer do you prefere for a fan to be aimed toward you? or away from you?

    also if your going to do this. Put tape all the way around the heatsink and leave like an inch at the very bottom part. This allows for the heat which is hottest near the bottom of the heatsink and most crucial to be moved away and out the fan.

    well I couldn't view the pdf files becuase I don't have the chinese package installed. but I guess from the look of that picture if acurate it looks like there is alot less of a center area. but truthfully with my delta fan moving 38 CFM of air, I really don't think there is a center problem. Or with the newer 80MM fans moving 50cfm I don't think there will be a problem there either. truthfully I think that center problem only existed with the older fans. you know back in the K6 days or even pentium days and 486 days.

    Here is why the TMD fan will never be more than slightly better... (and it is a simple reason)

    The fins near the middle are BARELY moving, (just like in the center of a merry-go-round) and therefore don't move Any significant amount of air. In fact, I bet if someone bult a giant TMD fan, and tried to build pressure with it, air would actually go the WRONG WAY through the middle of the fan. Just imagine how windy it is on the edge of a merry-go round, and then imagine how windy it is in the middle.

    The TMD fan will never be popular if its main quality is 'better airflow' BUT if they make it quieter, or use less power, or something, then it COULD be a possibility, but I highly doubt either of those.
