    I'm gonna get one of those. I like that. I know HP uses that in there machines. Well atleast they did a few years ago when there was a giant cover on the cpu/hsf area.

    If you've studied the science behind air flow at all. You would know how a tornado works. Remember the movie twister? When the two were tied to the pole? There was almost nothing in the center. Or how about a hurricane is a perfect example. The eye of the storm is almost done. ok........this is the same thing. THe most airflow is right under the blades the center of the fan has almost no air movement which is the most important part because that's where the core of the processor is. This raises the fan and allows that funnel effect to go away. BAM mucho improvement in cooling. ;)

    Toward the end of this guide shows a perfect example of what this piece does and what we're talking about by "improved air flow" http://tweak3d.net/tweak/airflowtweak/

    If ya take notice of the pics it's to try and eliminate the center dead zone caused by the hub of the fan and as the is completely smooth and nothin' to cause air turbulance that could seriously work. ;)

    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    cool, so it's not just a gimmick, but it actually works? Someone should do some reviews on it (hint, hint, Tweaktown)! I would buy it if it's not too expensive...

    And yeah, I remember that hp used to provide some plastic ducting with their cpu fan when I opened one up a long time ago. I wasn't into modding and cooling back then though.

    Cases similar to the Lain Li P31 here, &lt;img src="http://www.dansdata.com/images/pc31/back240.jpg"&gt;, where the PSU sits between the HSF and side of the case couldn't take one and there are many more cases like this one out there. ;)
