((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?

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.
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.
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?
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!
