Default Do This!!

i know about a million people have done this and posted about it but today I doubled up my window intake with a 92 i had lying around meaning I had double, i attatched a pic..
its reduced my idle already to 35 and load to 43 (2hours of half life 2) from like idle 42 and load 49..
I was bored so I just thought I'd give it a try but didnt think it would reduce the temps this much!!!
if u have the capacity to do it, then do it!

as u can see now my cpu is like fan city, 2 intakes blowing right onto the cpu and the gfx card and then an 120 exhaust suckin all the heat off the gfx card..!

Someone just posted this like two days ago <--- nevermind, I believe you saw that one actually ,about stacking fans. A few months ago I told people to try it, but a lot were skeptical.

I had it on my previous case since like september as the rear exhaust and before the rear exhaust I had it in the side like yours.



People told me I was crazy when I posted it, now people are posting it like it's the new craze or somethin

I also noticed a decent decrease in temps from it at the time, dont have it on the new case though
