Wink Good way to cool CPU with just fans. <<try it out

Hey, I was considering ov3rclocking my CPU and i figured i needed some cooling. So I had an old fan sitting around and I though about it, so I stuck the old fan right behind my case fan, and screwed them together. now I have 2 fans that are " helping each other" push air out. My CPU temperature stays at about 35 degrees Farenheight. You should try it out if you want good cooling for cheap.

make sure the fans push the same direction.

Samsung QX410 notebook <-- lol, I'm always on the go these days :(

it HAS to be otherwise the degree in C would be far under 0 which can't be done on air cooling

Had that on my computer for some time now, but I've since moved it from that case.

I will have teh 2 radiators stacked though on my liquid cooling set up as soon as it arrives.

It's far more effective to just put the fan in another spot.
What you are doing is kinda adding a "turbocharger"

Well if you've got fans in all the other spots already, then you gotta start doublin em up

It's not double the CFM or anything but it's still a nice little boost
