    a case like that looks like it may cause some heat problems
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    wonder what effect if you extented the duct somehow to the back of your incoming air fan at the front/bottom of your case,maybe using somekind of flexible tube.

    ??

    Now that's a different kettle of fish that one as the principle again is right but due to it needing to conform to different case layouts it has that flexible ductin' which creatives it's own probs in that the airtract is changin' all the time and this creates turbulance which also creates back pressure and noise in itself (I'm not sayin' that it's not a great product but it does have it's flaws) where as the Thermaltake is just a smooth curve creating little turbulance. Turbulance also causes friction which also generates a small amount of heat in itself. ;)

    will it work? you have to get like some vacuums something. another thing for ATX cases it would cause a problem, you intake but no exhuast.

    I just bought one of those things and it works good.
    It takes some place in the casing but it does not interfear with the rest of my components.
    I removed all my casefans (4) after i got it in and my cpu stays on 49C during normal operation and 52C after running BF1942 for a couple of houers.

    I am very happy now when my Computer is just whispering instead of sounding lika a passing fighterjet. :)
