Well, as much as possible I want a adapter thats done professionally because I have a huge PC window.

Plycon has some but they are: 80mm-60mm , 120mm-80mm, and 92mm-60mm. NO 92mm-80mm!!!

So If you guys spot any in the net......let me kno

erm, that thing is pretty useless, most of the air just escapes around the heatsink......... If anything you would get higher temps i think.

How about you use it with one of those Tornado fans that seem to be designed to have those "focused flow" blades just like the DELTAs???

If you think about it..........the Swiftech MCX462 does not have any fan shrouds to redirect the air and still achieves amazing performance.

The MCX462 is an 80mm heatsink, with an 80mm fan i say use a proper duct, not a simple strap an oversized fan on.

Air, much like water will take the route of least resistance if it can, so having a gap around the edge will tend to make a higher proportion of air escape out the sides. as well as that, most of the airflow is generated at the blade tips anyway.

why dont all heatsinks have shrouds on them? so the air hasta go all the way down to the bottom to escape? i did that on a coolermaster and got at least 5c out of it... i think it was more...

Im thinking of doing an experiment on a delta, to quieten it and INCREASE airflow.... the noise comes from air over the blade tips, and you lose air over them, so if i shroud them it will be less noisy, and blow more air i think! Just will sticky tape do? lol
