Optimal Cooling?

((this is for a side panel fan))
Would you guys suggest, for CPU cooling, that i put the 55 cfm 80mm fan as intake and have it facing the heatsink? or do i have it offset so the splash-damage (yes i play mmorpgs) air affects the CPU?
edit: Dont complain about 80mm is not enough, i can easily widen the hole (dremel <3) and make it a 92, 120, or dare i say.... <A HREF="http://www.frozencpu.com/fan-88.html" target="_new">150mm</A> (bwahahahaha) hole!

and another quick simple question, my fan i ordered said it is variable RPM. If i just plug it into a 4pin, should it use its max RPM? or do i need to connect it to the 3 pin like another fan i have is? (its connected to 3 out of 6 pins on my mobo, i guess another fan can go on the other 3?

the fan is a <A HREF="http://www.coolerguys.com/840556014034.html" target="_new">Cheap-o 2 dolla Fan!</A>

er, wait. its a

yea, it gets loud at high rpm. heavy music through my headphones + a nice table fan always on = what noise? ^_^
im on a crappy budget ;_; and yes. I like high CFM, not TOO much noise, and LEDs are always fun @_@

yes, i know its 52 cfm, and i said 55 above.


P.P.S.

Going to use FrozenCPU.com from now on instead of coolerguys. ((they're just a bit slow.... I send an email asking for the tracking info, and they send me the receipt that i already have))<P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by KeeperHET on 04/19/05 02:05 AM.</EM></FONT></P>

nah ill just lay a soldering iron against the fan (JOKE!)
[cause i dont know how many of you are die-hard and would hurt someone that'd try that] well... thats a what, 2.95$ fan? hopefully the thermal sensor is seperate from the main board that makes up the back of the fan, if it is i could (hopefully) pop it out and move it towards my cpu (cause heat sinc sink synch synk sync has too many spellings, none of which i know dead-on) if not... "oh bother" oh well, i guess. anyways, ill have a total of 3 fans out of my computer, 2 going back in, ill plug them all in and figure which one runs faster given a temperature environment, and decide which fan is better.

Fan 1: <A HREF="http://www.globefan.com/8025.htm" target="_new">Black 80mm fan - 10.92 CFM </A>
Fan 2: <A HREF="http://www.coolerguys.com/840556014126.html" target="_new">4 LED 80mm fan - 32.5 CFM </A>
Fan 3: <A HREF="http://www.coolerguys.com/840556014034.html" target="_new">2 LED 80mm fan - 22 - 52 CFM </A>

lol well stock fan is obviously obsolete, it puts out as much as a 40mm o.o Ill use it to replace my dead power supply fan.

((yea i answered my own question, a quick google search for globe fan was all it took bwaha))

honestly ill just figure out if in my average situation if the variable speed outperforms the steady 32.5 CFM

although the dBA could affect my decision.... curious, do any of you suggest a <A HREF="http://www.frozencpu.com/duc-16.html" target="_new">Reactive Thermal Thing </A>
or maybe a <A HREF="http://www.coolerguys.com/840556018537.html" target="_new"> Duct... thing </A>

and i bet it looks awesome too <sarcasm> actually things like that can be run through the dishwasher (just set the heat limiter on your water heater to a warm but not hot as normal temp) and the label + all adhesive will be gone, but one bit of confusion, 2.25L? I know they come in 2 Litre, and the normal 20 ounce size, and the bigger 1 litre, but 2.25 <b>litre</b>? You -are- from the states right?


hrmm, 2 person thread lol!

thats why.
we have 3 sizes here
<A HREF="http://www.bevmo.com/productinfo.asp?sku=00000009700&Dn..." target="_new">20oz.</A>
<A HREF="http://www.bevmo.com/productinfo.asp?sku=00000006809&Nt..." target="_new">2Litre</A>
and
<A HREF="http://www.bevmo.com/productinfo.asp?sku=00000014227&Nt..." target="_new">1Litre</A>

Its OK tho! I can take an empty 2Litre, run it through the dishwasher to strip it, and then cut the midsection out, and just roll it to a good 80mm size, and then i can use a variety of means to keep it at that size, but this is truely great, never would of thought of using simple bottle plastic as a duct, but it -will- work :)  dont know what ill do to keep it there, tho =/ maybe ill buy a really cheap real duct / port (think bass enclosure) something that just attaches to an 80mm and is tapered, who knows!
