As you can see bellow I made a rough mock up of the general layout for the idea -- I hope it helps a little but let me try to explain.

The key bit is 1): build a main duct for the CPU HSF itself -- isolating the air flow for the RAM and CPU. What I'm putting forward is the idea is using the venturi effect and positive displacement to increase both the power and efficiency of the cooling system.

My hope is this design might give increased cool air pressure to the ram and HSF without needing to increase power consumption from stock values.

To explain my thinking here is that, thanks to the venturi effect, the cooler air will be compressed and so flowing fast over the ram and into the cpu's heatsink fan (HSF). Then, once heated by the HSF, the air expands creating "positive displacement" -- ie: additional pressure for the exhaust.

So in this case, the positive displacement would be free, since the air is getting heated by the CPU's wasted energy anyhow. Could also think of it like a jet-gas pump, using the CPU's waste energy to create the air pressure for the exhaust.

If it seems like an idea worth trying I'll start by switching the 120 cm case fan from the back to the front drive bays to give us the intake pressure.

The second bit 2): is sort of tossed in on the side. Nothing interesting -- just a short intake duct to the GPU; since the GPU also exhausts in the case and the front fan doesn't offer it much air at all I figure I'll give it a little TLTC (tender lovin' thermal care) too.

(btw not my case in the img ...waiting for my CM Scout to arrive in the mail!!)

As for materials: maybe 3-5mm mylar and packing tape (considered possible static issues); attached to the case along the top it shouldn't be a concern.

The duct idea is a good one, I did it myself but with no venturi, mine was more of focusing the air where it did the most good. I am a mechanic by trade and did a little experiment with the AC on cars & trucks, with the fan turned all the way up the temp out of the ducts went up, too much air flow across the evaparator actually heated it up, drop the fan speed one notch and the temp went down, no sure if it will be the same with a cpu cooler though but it would be a cool experiment to find out still.

the other side is labeled with the normal stuff..... but im DEFIANTLY putting an ambidextrous selector switch on that lower when i get it... and that ejector cover i might forget about and get one custom one done

See if you can Mod an ejector that will send the Shell Casing at a 45 degree trajectory instead of a full 90 Degrees.

I agree on your idea of air current vs Air pressure.. Actually the best way to cool something is to move the Ambient coating of temperature from the device. But if you push too hard throwing pressure on the device. The Ambient temp actually finds a hiding place inside the device and the higher pressure actually stops the heat from escaping.. Rep up on the Comment.

i think to do that you would need to modify the extractor on the bolt... and your upper reviver for a taller ejection port.... that's a complicated process i think... i was talking about the engraving on the inside of it. i might not get that stuff but instead just a flag on one side of the catch and the POW seal on the other

like this one

only with this instead of the snake (which is already on that side of the weapon)

I wonder what it would be like if we had two fans set apart by 1 to 2 inches of distance from one another and then run a A/C duct work system inside the case. It would probably be a Fail at working but I bet that it would get a win in design.

Actually I would have to get one with CMSSC on one side and Gen E on the other, but that is just me.

lol that would be slick

most of the guys i shoot with are/were marines and army (and an airforce guy or two) and we all know more than a few people lost or KIA and i kinda want my first military/"tacticool" weapon to be a tribute to them and what they fought for.

Vietnam.. It was fought for the oil drilling fields in the near by waters. Also the CCCP and China were both interested in the future oil drilling rights as well.

All wars are started over Money... "Tom Clancy" Spoken on CNN at the beginning of the Iraq war, just before he was never heard from again on television as a consultant.

IF he was right, then don't forget your Dollar Sign.

oddly enough... i was thinking of putting one on the front of the mag well.... more as a reference to Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged and the money spent on ammo...

but i guess it could go that way too... =/
