Guessing from model number, I doubt it will outperform HDT S1283
A side fan blowing cold air in wil cool the NB anyway right? What about those that dont have a side fan? This blows air directly onto the HS and out the bottom to the NB and RAM. In my simple minded thought it wouldn't cool as good as a HS that has air blowing from one side out from the other, like the s1283, True, or most others.
