    If you took it out of a case, attached a long enough thin cable to it and a couple of stabilising fins, then we have found ETs mothership!

    its only doing 600rpm, low noise, should push enough air to aid the dodgy mosfet coolers I've put on my 8800GTs :D my 7900 WC coolers will only do the RAM and GPU on the 8800, shame no one has stock yet :(

    Worse, is consider the fact that now you have <100 CFM spread over what, a 220x220mm area? Whereas before you had focussed cooling, now you have somewhat of a gentle breeze - which will get sucked away by all the other fans, FAST

    Power Usage

    Having already decided to use these fans, I wanted to know the current usage for a temperature control circuit I'm making and thought it might be useful if anyone wanted to know!

    I emailed Akasa and they said the 22cm fan uses 0.28A or 280mA, might be useful to people as its quite a bit higher than smaller fans but reasonable considering the size!
