    How It Works

    This is also why you may have already heard of the 2CoolPC system. If you take a look at some of the pictures, it might seem a little simplistic, so simple in design that it actually seems ridiculous to call it a custom cooling system. To put the 2CoolPC simply, it is a plastic duct that fits on the floor of your case that routes airflow up and over your graphics card so that it sends cool air to the upper warm regions of your computer. Normally, this should connect to your case fan but 2CoolPC takes it a step further by adding it's own 80mm case fan to the ducting. This makes it more efficient in sending air through to the top. The system is also advertised as a PCI cooling device. This is true because if you look at the 2CoolPC from the top, only the left half of the unit is raised to send air to the top and the right side has no ducting at all. The right side is used to just send air in the general direction forward through to the PCI slots. This makes the 2CoolPC be able to send air to almost every point in the computer's case. Although simple, this is a great idea and also a great performer. I hope I explained the system well enough for you to understand but if you don't, I borrowed a good image from their website to illustrate it:

    How the 2CoolPC Plus works

    You can clearly see how it fits on the computer's base. Please note that this is for use inside the case only. If you can see the right side of the system, you will notice that there is no high duct. It is cut off so it basically acts like half a case fan. The left side of the system blows air through to the top of the PCI slots to the processor region as you can see and the right side blows to the PCI/ISA slots.
