i heard that it cools the cpu wayyy better if you put like a tunnel from your side fan over the HSF, they say it keeps the incoming air cooler. i was just wondering if this true and if anybody can give me tips on how to do it?

Something like this:

Cooling Duct

Although that is an australian site.

The one thing you must keep in mind though is that the CPU is not the only thing that needs cooling in your case.

The OC'ers folder probably would have given you better answers on this :)

Hotrodding -> performance, OC'ing, cooling
Modding -> Look and feel of software and hardware
(although the lines are blurry)

also if i used something like that wouldnt just disrupt the airflow of the whole computer?
and would there be large enough results to go this route?

Its dependant on your system really. You will get a few degrees out of it. However, the max under ideal condition is 15 degrees C. And you will never get that. Expect more like 3-4.

Is it worth it? Thats up to you :)

If I didn't say it before, the OC'ers folder would have been better for this question :)


EDIT - oh, I did say it - nevermind. END EDIT
