When last we left my hapless computer, the best configuration for CPU cooling was this...
Yesterday, whilst browsing the hardware store, these funny little plumbing brackets caught my eye and I thought "Hmmm, if two intake fans are good, maybe FOUR would be even better!"
I can't help it, I'm American...
You'll have to overlook the messy wiring, this is just a test after all.
So now the HSF is literally surrounded by fans, all pushing air directly into/onto it.
Now for the quiz.
Do you think that the two extra fans:
1) helped to lower the CPU temp
2) made no difference
3) made it worse?
