I was wondering if they make fans that are 150mm or larger. WHat I want to do is mount a fan ontop of the reserator pointing down and then encase teh radiator with thin metal and then teh fan would blow air down the fins towards the bottom this way I could turn my get performing passivly cooled water system into a even better performing activly cooled system. http://www.zalmanusa.com/usa/p...iew....idx=63&code=021' ">http://www.zalmanusa.com/usa/p...ew.asp?idx=63&code=021
The dimensions are 150Lx150Wx500H
Thanks !!!

Also what do you guys think of that idea ?

yea there are a couple of fans that size but surely not for a computer. and i think they are 120V powered... looks like a nice idea. How much is one of those ?? good luck !

Um, you might want to consider putting the fan UNDER the reservator. After all, hot air rises. You don't want the fan having to fight normal convection currents. Have it pull in cool air from the bottom and push the hot out the top...

Thing is though, isn't the point of the reservator to make a fanless system? (As I recall from the reviews, it really wasn't fantastic for overclocking). What's the point of going this route if you're going to put in a fan?

I'm not sure how i would make something to push from the bottom but i will try, I know it's not good for OC, it' s wroks great with my 200mhz oC, but I don't care about noise really and we got it with out doing extensive research.

You don't need to make it push from the bottom. Just make it suck aire out from the top.

Hmm. you could always get a 120mm and make your own adapter for it.

If you do anything, make a PVC casing for it of some kind to help contain the airflow, or else your fan will be very inefficient in operation.

Metal would still be a better choice, I believe, as it can still transfer heat between the inside and outside air. PVC would practically insulate the whole thing.

Hmm, I don't think that metal would help a lot like that, we're not talking about high enough temperatures. PVC is the best choice since it's a zillion times easier to handle.
Best of luck, and it would be nice if you post a picture when you're done...
