That has to be the worst idea I've ever heard in my life. It would look ridiculous, sound like a rc airplane, and be completely pointless. If you want good cooling, dont waste your money on talf thought through plans and get something that is known to work.

Not true. Some are belt driven some aren't.

The fan in our car isn't belt driven. (No you can't have it.)

i thought basically all radiator fans were either belt driven or shaft driven directly from the engine. are there electric ones?

yeah, their called Themo Fans.




^^ they don't all look like that.
there are newer ones that look better.

they run off 12v, so it could work.

maybe hook up 2 PSU's, and 2 Thermo Fans, one in each side of case, one in, one out.

might be good.

You're forgetting the problem with the electro-magnetic field large motors give off.

Air conditioning pumps and fans would be belt driven, but the radiator fans are not as they come on when the car starts to get too hot when stationary.
