Now we'll see how good these blowers really perform. Just a word of caution and explanation, I believe that having a 250 Watt power supply was insufficient. I think it lowered the power to my case fans, causing them to run slower, therefore moving less CFMs. By the way, the CPU 2 results should be ignored as the temp. probe is a known error on the Abit BP6.


Where the Gamma 32s were placed removes exhaust from the CPUs and from the video card. Even though the Voodoo3 is not "active" per say, it does still produce serious amounts of heat, especially with the FSB at 106 MHz and the AGP bus at 2/3.


Man, just reach behind the computer to the blow hole and you'll know this thing is doing its job. Heck, I never turn on the heater in my room, seriously. My room remains at a constant 70º F all day and night =).

Well, pretty good results. I think ducting or elevating the Gamma 32 that was blowing ON to the cards would have produced better results. Maybe, if my digital camera ever comes (3 months on back order now buycomp.com.. HURRY) I can try this again with ducting.
