A friend of mine built his case with a big ol squirrel cage fan out the side of it sucking in.  He has no HSF (has a heat sink, no fan) and he has a ton of holes cut in his case (fans cant get the air out quick enough).

He rivals water cooling temps, and with the noise of like a single 120 mm fan.  Cool idea, if you're willing to have that thing sticking out of your case..

no, If I had a digital cam I'd have pics of his mod and mine up.

His cpu temps are close to 30c I know, not sure about the rest of the case.

If you dont know what a squirrel cage fan is, ya know those big blower in stores and rest areas and sh*t? they're big and blue, and they have a nozzle on the bottom.. thats a squirrel cage fan.. a big one

the squirrel cage fan is a centrifugal blower fan.  They are usually not as loud, but don't deliver as much air flow (CFM).  But the big benefit over normal fans is that they have high pressure and straight air flow.  The air doesn't have to be straightened out and doesn't dissipate when going through a heat sink.  I was thinking about making a videocard chipset cooler out of a block of copper with holes drilled through.  A normal fan wouldn't have the pressure to push air through, but a blower would , just have to deal with that weird right angle thing, which could be a benefit get air from a cooler source. What do you guys think?
