I used a dryer duct to reduce the temperature of my Overclocked AMD Opteron 165 by about 5 degrees. The idle temperature without the duct was about 40°C or 104° F. After the duct, the idle temperature is between 34-36°C or 93.2-96.8°F. I know a lot of people spend up to 100 dollars on new thermal paste and heatsinks, just to reduce the temperature by a few degrees. This is an easy $5 dollar accessory with noticeable results. Basically, the duct redirects cool (room temperature air), and blows it directly on top of the heatsink/processor fan. The cool thing is, you may direct the duct elsewhere, so instead of your Processor, you can cool your Hard Drives, Video Card, or anything else.
