Would this affect my hsf cooling?

This is my motherboard, but I'm afraid if I do add the two fans already shown in the picture, it will affect my cooling using the hsf that came with my pentium d processor.

Does anyone think it would affect?

We all know the Tuniq is awesome and very hard to get if I can get it I would definitely buy it.

Does this link work? It shows a bunch of motherboards. There should be some pictures with the fan included.

I hardly doubt it would affect it in a bad way.

If you have em blownig onto the cpu it will deliver more cool air. If you have em exhausting it would make the cpu cooler anyways. So its win win. Only thing i can say is they may get in the way of some custom coolers. But i hardly doubt it.

Yup, link works. They shouldnt affect your CPU cooling at all, but it depends on what CPU HS you have.

Edit: Those little fan things dont blow air towards/away from CPU. They just blow down.

Because in the manual, it said it is for use in junction with passive coolor or water cooler only.

Installing the optional fan with an active cpu coolor will interfere with internal cpu cooler airflow and endanger system stability.

Is the hsf a passive or active cooler?

Well I'm not sure. Let's see:

Passive - no fan, depends on case airflow.
Active - fan on the HSF.

However, if you take great care to determine the airflow within the case (even create small airducts from cardboard to direct cool air to specific points), there should be no problem.

Big HS's, like the Tuniq Tower, will not be affected by, or affect, the little fans. Small HS's, like the stock HS, could possibly get less cool air, being used by the small fans.

I just determined my case has horrible air flow and I'm not going to buy another. My other computer, supposedly my main, I cannot use it too long because my main hard drive goes to 50 degrees celcius. It gets scary. =_=

So I should just put the two little fans and test how the flow is?

Take a temp reading of your CPU, at full load, without the fans. Then, using the same set-up, take a temp reading with the little fans on.

The intake fan at the bottom front is impaired by the thing that holds your hard drives. Theres simply not enough holes in the container to allow the air to pass through. If you can either modify the container, or make your own, to let more air pass through, everything will be cooler.

I assume you have a fan on the side panel.
