Would using a shroud to direct airflow be an effective way of directing airflow? Thanks Andy I've seen this done on Dell computers but I'm not sure how effective it is. I have Silverstone AP-181's which use a grill to direct airflow in a narrower beam. You could also try doing something like thishttp://www.sunbeamtech.com/PRODUCTS/Quarterback/Quarter... to increase airflow in the middle of the case. | Report abuse andypearce November 8, 2011 2:33:46 PM Okay, I'll check those sites out when I get home.
