The giant fan of doom.

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
The plan:

The tools: A vent in the back of your computer

The parts: A giant 80-100cm 3 spaded fan.

I noticed I had two vents in the front and two vents in the back on my case. Only one of my back vents had a fan on it (a 120mm), so I decided to stick this bad boy behind it.

it dropped it about 7 degrees (C)

I'm a big fan of Doom too! I've played all of them since i was 6 and i play Doom 3 too. Oh, that's not what you were talking about

Nice temp drop by just having a fan there.

I have two more upstairs that I'm thinking of putting behind it to, only problem is the base of it is like 2 feet and takes up the entire space XD. 3 speeds on it to!

edit: it's making my feet freeze, oh well, it'll be nice in the summer!

You could make a tube to put around the fan and have the air flowing directly through the tube into your computer

What tube do you think would be big enough? I don't have any around my house, but that's a sweet idea.

Note: It would have to be big to small, or atleast a elastic band or plastic tie to make the other end small, so I could fit it into a hole.

Get a piece of poster size paper or thin cardboard and make a funnel for it. That way it will feed all the air in to the system. Nice temp drop BTW.
