Whoops, sorry guys...I misunderstood your question.

I mounted that fan [Scythe Gentle Typhoon 1850] on the bottom of my computer case [HAF X] so my computer case would hover similar to R2D2...

Ok, not really, but it sure makes a good story.

I installed a number of extra fans to increase the air flow, hoping to reduce the over all case temps, and thereby increase the longevity of the computer components.

I know, many people have told me it is over kill...

But heck, the fans were not very expensive, they are all quiet, and they do move a fair amount of air. Best of all, I can easily hover away from that villain Darth Vadar!

Hey, what do you think of my custom made air flow chart?

Pretty good airflow chart actually. That top fan, though - isn't there another one in the top? Doesn't seem to be labeled.
