    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?

    Excellent!

    I shall be off-line for a few hours as my next modification requires yet another complete stripdown of my PC.

    Upon my return I hope to see many more guesses.

    Don't be shy here people, after all, everyone has been complaining about how slow things have been...
