    oh, yeah, if I can't find any I fully intend to use 80mm fans instead.

    what I'm looking for is something like this:

    only for 3" ductwork. The 4" one on that page wont fit underneath my false floor

    Thanks eCar, I hadn't seen those yet.

    those are the right size, but unfortunately they are too expensive (I need 2 of them) and they draw 5A, which is ungodly.

    methinks the 80mm fans may have to suffice

    i know this isn't what your looking for at all... it's really not very on topic... but how about twin black label delta 120mm fans... they move enough air that you could just slap them on your rear bumper if you run out of gas and go

    to stop watter and dirt from getting in the PC you can build a cold air intake system you need a small cone air filter with a 2" opening some 2" pipe hose ect. a pipe reducer and pipe that seals on the large part of the filter cone

    here is how to do it get the 2" pipe or hose and run it to the PC's intake fan the put the small cone air filter on the other end then use the bigger pipe that will seal on the large end of the filter cone make it 3" longer than the filter and drill 5-6 1" holes at the other end from the filter

    then you need to make some reeds this will let air in if the intake pipe fills with watter in bad weather and will not let watter get to the PC's intake fan

    use a scrap piece of the bigger pipe and put some car wax on the inside as mold release keep it smooth then mix some fiberglass resin and lay down 1 layer of fiberglass cloth keep it as thin as possable don't use to much resin you want the reeds to bend easy when dry so wipe off excess resin

    cut the fiberglass into 1 1/2 x 2" reeds and then drill holes and bolt them over the 1" holes with nylock nuts and bolts then use a pipe reducer and run 2" pipe to the hole in the floor TA DAA instant deep watter safe cold air intake system

    well, had it not been 45degrees today, I wouldve gotten everything done.

    I been busy:






    I get to drive around with flexiduct flapping all over my trunk till I get done.

    Why is it that it can be 80degrees here one day and have a high of 52 the next?
