i don't know how this helps the debate, but electric fans are useless at creating pressure differences. they are good at moving volumes of air. i work with industrial blowers (blow air into a restriction), and the small ones (blowing air through about 50 litres of coarse material) use 1000 Watts on 3 Phase.

anyway, after experimenting with duct tape, i've subscribed to the "make air go everywhere" school of thought. the wind-tunnel didn't work for me. of course, the ambient temperature is very important too. damn adelaide summer.

"Intel certified" cases now have two holes in the side panel, one with a shroud leading to the CPU fan. I've also read they are thinking of stock liquid cooling for the next generation...
