Not sure though, you can try it
Im sorry but I am going to have to disagree with you on that, my temps dropped about 5-6*C after adding a 114 CFM fan. So it does make a difference. My Temps dropped about a total of 10-14*C by adding the Big Typhoon and a High cfm fan over my Venus 12.

hmm, odd as most on xtremesystems.org did not lose anything by upgrading the fan

Hmm...Are you talking about the metal bar that comes into contact with the CPU but is also exposed because it holds the heatpipes? I guess you could fit a couple on there, it does take a little while to get the heatpipes working, so you'd probably have lower temps during a cold boot, as liquid inside needs to heat up to the top of the pipe so it can be cooled off.

exactly...but I dunno if it'll work...atm I'm trying to figure out how to cure this little vibration I'm getting from the unit itself...I know it stems from the fan, but I'm got that thing locked down so tight, and yet it still vibrates...what should I do?
