Blow on it.

However, blowing air around inside the case now matter how good ~ is bliss. The whole key is airflow in -out of the case as evan "flow".

<--0-<--0--<--
<--0-<--0--<--

While devices like this will help get the air off parts, getting it in/out is more important.

Anyways, I used to use many fans and devices like that etc.. now I run 300Mhz OC'd on air.. can't hear my PC and run @ 41c idle.

But ya, it can help. Get it, cause its cool. (sorry, i didnt read the other thread)
;)

You need more? Have it blow on the card.

Adding on to what Burke states (and have been a long time believer in the same cooling idea), but this will take cooler ambient air from outside the case and put it right where you want it...over the Video card and CPU area. As it is in ATX form, they usually sit in their own poo and not get much fresh stuff.

Having it blow out just moves more of the air that they already have (hot) over the parts and then out of the case. You're not really helping the parts any more than you were before using this thing.

17.73- 29.54cfm is a wide range...is this thing variable?

It should blow onto the card. I had one (lights up nice under UV) but another possible air cooling solution would be an Arctic Ice cooler. Although it has a better heat sink than stock, a great benefit is that it exhaust air out of the case but it does need a free PCI slot.
