Default Super Case Fan

Simply remove the side panels on the computer and place a 10 x 10 box fan with 3 speeds on the open side.

Keeps her nice and cool.

Yup, you will blow in so much crud that any benefit from the added airflow will be negated.

I also had the idea of this, but using these things.

I also considered it but all the fans I have are nasty from the crap they build up. If I tried this on my computer I would be blowing so much cat hair into my case it would probably create a fire hazard. I also have wooden flooring so all the dirt would get swept right in by the fan.
