                              I don't know why I watched this two year old video but I just had an idea:
                              why have 1/4 heatsink and 3/4 fan when you can have 100% fan?
                              you could build some kind of funnel that fits on the blowie and directs all the airflow directly onto the CPU-heatspreader

                                        What was the point of this video? it doesn't even fit in the ITX case shown at the start. It probably wont fit on normal mid atx cases since its so thick.

                                                  fyi I've offloaded the 12v for all of my fans (all pwm) to the actual 12v rail on my psu to avoid drawing current through the traces of my board. No deltas yet, but I can't find a single god @(*#&$ person who can understand the concept of ipmitool raw 0x30 0x70 0x66 0x01 0x00 0x10 && ipmitool raw 0x30 0x70 0x66 0x01 0x01 0x10 (0x10 up to 0x64, previous byte is the zone, zone 0 then zone 1.) AND if its at all possible (dude I'm gonna get mad) just something with a rubber stopper on the bearing, that can go from quiet to moving air, preferably good delta style bearings... why is this so hard for people to understand, you cant go wrong, with the settings if it NEEDS higher it will force the fans to go higher, if you set the stepping to 0, it kicks into 64 instantly--fool proof I guess unless you really are dumb enough to completely negate the temp thresholds too (must be why this is not just DONE/no need to revisit.) WHAT ELSE COULD IT BE ????? ITS TRIVIAL READ HOW TO BLINK AN LED WITH ARDUINO FOR CHRIST SAKES, IT DOESNT EVEN HAVE TO BE THAT HARD FOR THE END USER EITHER JUST PLEASE STANDARDIZE

                                                  You are an idiot. You have no respect for technology. FYI: Delta has a twin axle fan that rotate in opposite directions. One blade runs at 11,000 RPM.s the other at 14,000 RPM’s in opposite direction. Do your homework next time you make your claims.
