    you know when it will be, because if it's going to be sent out monday then it'll be pointless to send you a fan as it'll probably arrive at the same time LOL

    When I was air cooled I used mine . They work great . take side panel off and use it forcing that air right into the case . It will cool EVERY thing FAST !

    if you didn't notice it looks like the fan is blowing out the window not sucking air in. So that should keep most if not all water away from it. :rolleyes:
    also i'm sure if it does rain hard he will close the window. I don't think anyone with as much hardware as him would be too stupid to close a window when it rains hard :rolleyes:

    Damn, I didn't notice the Ethernet cable from my i7 had came off the router. The clip is broken so it comes off from time to time. No wonder my i7 had not been reporting any work :(

    That pic is from yesterday. Even with 80F+ heat outside, the room stay's 10F cooler due to immediately exhausting most of the heat from the GPU's. It's alot easier on the Central A/C and the Electric bill using this method.

    House has an eave that overhangs 4ft from the wall, so only strong rains hit the window. I also have to close it during the day(at work) or when I leave on the weekends. Just being able to have it open at night makes a huge difference in this house.
