    Anyone ever thought about or used such a thing. I know it won't necessarily cool the cpu/gpu better but it should let the heat transfer better.

    Should be easy to put together but don't wanna drop 50-75$ without some kind of confirmation.

    Something along the lines of these

    Seems like it would work nicely but for some strange reason the people who put these together made absolutely no mention of the results.

    You might see some temperature drop across the board, probably on the order of 5 degrees C or so.

    Thing is, the casing isn't really part of the cooling system per se, so cooling it just doesn't have much effect on the internals.

    I would be afraid of condensation forming inside the computer. I guess that depends on what you are using as a coolant and the relative humidity.

    this is the equivalent of putting a fan under your car to cool the radiator, virtually zero use. It has no interaction with the heatsink; airflow through the heatsink, and no change to air temperature entering the vents.
