    Yea but it would prob hit your mobo or cpu heatsink/fan. Are you trying to stick 2 in at once?

    You could always use ducting for it or something.

    Sounds good, I thought about trying this before. Should ask clocker and the other pc fanatics about the cooling.

    What is your aim?? Purely performance, but at the cost of noise??
    Or would you want a quiet 120mm fan that does not cool as well?

    You can get 120mm fans that are less then 20dBa or you can get a 120mm fan that is over 50dBa.
    So my question was which type does he want, a loud one that cools relaly well? Or a quiet one that doesn&#39;t cool as well.
    Your off the ball again today SingaBoiy
