    Something more like this with an internal fan to cover the dead zone area to the intake side of the case. ;)

    i was thinking more like this, fresh air to cpu and video card, and flush joints so i dont lose to much air flow

    Will ya have some sort of airflow diversion there to force the air to take that path? :?:

    hmm, good thinking, how about this
    move the exaust to side so don't suck hot air straight back in.

    It may work ok but remember that sharp changes of air direction also creates turbulence which will also hinder airflow. :)

    my main aim is to get the fresh air where it's needed most, cpu, video card, HDD, etc. so if i lose a bit of air flow in other areas it's not a HUGE loss

    I gotta get in on this.... I was recently tinkering with making the ultimate air cooled case :grr: So, noise not being a concern I fabbed up an aluminum case, with copper risers for the mobo etc. , and made custom risers to put the HDD's directly into the airflow(all the internals are pretty much resting in a square box open on 2 ends).... Then I used all the best themaltake equiptment for the ram, cpu and video card.

    - Here is where it gets fun:flames: I had 2 electric fans (1 pusher fan and 1 puller fan) off of my old race car laying around - BeCool 16" fans pushing 2360cfm to be precise. So I simply mounted them to the "open box case" I fabbed up, got some power converters wired up so I could plug them into a wall socket, and voila! Serious air flow :thumb: More recently I made "hoods" for the Geforce and Cpu to insure they could grab onto the 2360cfm rushing by, kinda like a ram air effect, and I even put really soft gummy rubber feet on to elimate what little vibration I had.

    This weekend I'll take some pictures and post em' if ya want? Now if I could only mass produce and sell these puppies
