    I would point the fan at an angle so that the air that is hot on the inside can circulate out instead of just being pushed into by cool air. Let it blow toward the front of the case and circle around back to the fans in the rear and move the cover so that the air is free to move. That will certainly be more effective.

    Or you could use the cover to make sure the air folows a path to make it go in a circular motion. Either way.

    My point is, even though the air is cooling down slightly from the breeze you are still pushing the hot air right into the motherboard. =P

    Lol, nice idea, have you read the article about the FAN PC? :P
    Someone made a case with fans and put them all over. Like 30 fans or so and he had nice temps..

    It's a cool idea, but I'd invest to some good coolers, especially for your CPU...

    Hmm, im liking the idea akw. although i think i might leave it as it is :P

    bags of ice - inside = cool... hmm another good idea but the possabilty of getting a shock is high

    Nice idea! Thnx for getting me that Idea, Sometimes my PC overheats really bad. With Dual AMD Athlon 3800+s and 2GIGS of RAM and a 7600GS even with my cooling system. Thats brillant dude, pure OWNAGE>

    But i would angle the fan, so it blows cool air in and then it forces the hot air out, right now its just pushing the hot air back in the Case, instead of releasing it.

    I dont think you realized what I actually meant. What I was trying to say is you need to hide some your wires so the air flow isnt blocked. Being round is good but having a case that looks like that isnt the best.
    Here is a nice guide on how to do some good cable managment.

    Lol at this topic.
    @ AKW: I had no idea that it could save you 5 degrees by just moving the wires around.

    Yes, cooling is a priority for people who game. Thus, airflow is crucial to cooling computer parts. So, if air is not moving freely it can make it hard for cool/fresh air to move freely to all the parts but, muffled.
