Dyson air multiplier case mod?

Postposted on Thu Jul 05, 2012 3:45 pm

Why hasn't anyone come up with a case mod that uses the Dyson air multiplier to channel gusts of wind into the case to keep all the components running cool? I know it would be pretty expensive but it would be quiet too, since there are no annoying blades.

Size of the fans, all of the ducting that would be needed to direct the airflow, and as you said, cost. The footprint of a setup using one would be ridiculous with the fan and case together.

Huh? Dyson's "air multiplier" uses standard fan, with blades, it's just not really "visible" because it's hidden at the base of the unit...

This has come up before. The problem is that while that device can produce copious airflow, it can only do so when it isn't facing significant backpressure -- blowing into an open room, not into a small enclosed space like a case. Stick it in the front of a case, and a lot of air would end up blowing back out through the center of it, which is probably not what you want. Now, you might then choose to rig up two of them, with one acting as an exhaust to keep pressure close to ambient; that might work so as long as you kept it (and the case) well away from any walls or desk sides, etc. But now you're talking about a very expensive setup, and it probably still wouldn't be as effective as some modern top-end case fans.

Dyson = unnecessary high airflow with no requirement to keep noise levels low.

Enjoy your 75 decibel roaring PC from the land of the deaf. I'll be able to actually hear what actors are saying in the movie I'm watching.
In peace and quiet.
