Funneling Hot Air from Wraith Spire directly into top exhaust fan

Air Cooling - www.overclock.net
Hi All,

Little background:

my CPU is R7 1700 oc to 3.7 Ghz (1.25v)

my cooler is Wraith Spire, PWM controlled, set to max at 80 oC

my casing top exhaust fan is a Noctua NF-12 iPPC PWM controlled, max RPM set at 80 oC CPU temp.

my ambient temp is 30 oC

my idle temp is >48 oC

my cpu-z stress test load is > 82 oC.

Right now, my brain can't stop thinking about more efficient way to cool the CPU.

I have made some easy hack:

it reduces temp by around 2-3 oC

I also tried putting literally a funnel directly in front of the cooler down blower fan that seems to make things worse.

I am now imagining that removing the downblower, and making a tunnel from top of the cooler into the top exhaust fans would actually makes thing better.

Why?

1. the industrial fan is able to move around 70-72 cfh of air

2. the air would then be sucked from around the system into the cooler and right out of the system, not blown around inside the casing

3. I love imagining things.

So anyone want to chime in whether this is a good idea, bad idea, or just go with it and you will collectively donate a new cpu for me in case I fried this one ? '); }
