Coolmaster BLOWER

I was poking around and saw this. Thought it was worth a mention. I really like the 22db rating. The idea of air moving across the whole surface is rather appealing as well. 10.9 cfm seems a little weak though.

Remember that blowers can operate into much higher pressures. Putting a high CFM fan on a heatsink doesn't ensure high CFM throughput, due to the backpressure from the fins resistance. If the backpressure is high enough, you'll get virtually no air movement, other than the fan thrashing the air between it's blades.

Might be an interesting experiment!

I'm fairly sure that i seen a thread over at OC.com were a guy put put a small "squirrel cage" fan directly over his cpu and got some very good results, purchased from J.C. Whitney

that type of blower is designed for high pressure/ high flow/low noise
