ok i'm gonna try and post some pics i drew in paint to explain. It might be a little hard to understand but i'll try my darndest.
well i hope this helps
basically there'd be a bunch of low powered intake fans in the optical, top, and side and then 2 powerful ones in the back to push everything forward. there'd also be powerful ones in the front and side (near front to pull hot air out).
i thought that this would help to keep the motherboard cooler rather than have the harddrives heat up intake air before it gets to the HD. (that's pretty much the idea to this)
all comments welcome
