Which cooler is this?

and do you think it has got a side mounted fan on the cooler?

Anybody know where to get one in the uk?

TIA

Welcome to the SPCR Forums! Well, it looks like a view of a desktop-style ATX case (not a cooler) that details the general airflow of the system. I'm not quite clear what you're asking... :lol:

BTW - I'd doubt that there is a side-mounted cooler (which I'm assuming that you mean the top of the desktop style case) as some users place their monitors on top of the horizontal chassis (design would impede optimal airflow).

Sorry, I meant the CPU cooler. It sort of looks like it's got a side mounted fan!
I've used this case before and it's nice and compact but makes lots of noise as standard. I was wondering if I could replace the stock PSU fan with something bigger and use this in conjunction with a decent copper fan/zalman flower as the only fan in the case. Maybe use with an undervolted Athlon as well. I'm not after anything too powerful you see, just a small compact very quiet case to run a nebula digitv card. Needs to be more powerful than a VIA mb though unfortunately...

ah, well spotted Tobias thanks.
I congratulate you on your manipulation skills :wink:
I've since found this review http://www.silentpcreview.com/modules.p ... =16&page=2
and I am more inclined to try the single psu fan approach, but with it protruding from the housing ie as close as possible to a copper cpu heatsink with an undervolted Athlon.
Any opinions on this approach?
TIA
