Doesn't make much sense to me.
Its called directed air flow.
also the d14 middle fan stoops down real low and move air past most of the pcb which effectively cools other components.
I also find it funny that people are switching from d14's to a h100. I know they cool better out of the box, but the h100 comes with 2500rpm fans while the d14 comes with 1300 rpm fans.
In effect, you could save yourself a ton of money by just buying some higher powered fans for the d14 and probably get about the same cooling effect as the h100 if not better.Edited by AliceInChains - 8/9/11 at 5:13pm
