Is anyone else bothered by the airflow design of the reference cooling system?
While avoiding the warm air inside the case does have it's advantages, it would seem to me that these are nullified by the fact that the inlet and outlet ducts of the cooling system are beside each other.
Thus a good portion of the hot air coming out (whose column expands rapidly as soon as it leaves the ducts) travels a few inches and then just gets sucked right back in, especially in situations where the rear end of the case is only a few inches from a typical obstruction such as a wall. This problem is further excaberated if the case is configured to exhaust air from the back (The GFFX could be breathing the hair-dryer-hot air right out of your power supply.)
Yeah, and 70 decibels??? Jesusf**kingchrist! That's louder than the top of the line Delta 60mm fan."Life is not about the second chances. It's about the little mouse, and his voyage to an exciting new land. That, my friend, is what life is."
