hi there.  I'm building a box based on P4DC6+ board with two passive
copper coolers for both CPUs. The passive cooler isn't enough to
sufficiently cool the CPU's so I've decided to put some quiet 60mm fans
on the passive coolers.  since the fans I'm buying (20db, 12cfm) was
made to be quiet rather than move a lot of air, I was thinking about
putting two of these things per CPU, blowing the same direction,
towards the exhaust.  My question is - would this type of pairing
improve the cfm or somehow hurt the cooling capability in the overall
picture??  any thoughts will be welcome.  Thanks.

Re: 2 fans per CPU?

it should overall help with cooling. it would help tho if u put a
faster fan on top of the stack.
