Anybody ever stick there hand into a powered computer and accidentally touch the fan?

Yes, actually. It's quite painful and can go to the bone.


What the hell kind of fans are you using? I've gone and stuck my hands into all kinds of computer fans and never gotten so much as a cut.


At the time I was using six Scythe Ultra Kaze fans that were overvolted...

Looks awesome but how does one mount a spinsink? Would this force us back to horizontal desktops?

I have gpu fans that spin at 5,000 when being pushed....the artcle said that the fans don't collect dust b/c they are spinning so fast....2,000 RPM isn't that fast when it comes to computer cooling. My fans idle around 1900rpm.

Maybe it's a special fan? From the article "the blades are spinning far too quickly to ever collect dust."

Big problem with this.

Most towers are placed vertically.

That uniform gravitational pressure that you get for having your heatsink horizontally probably helps make it stable.

They're saying the heatsink doesn't collect dust because the heatsink itself is spinning. If you take apart a dusty computer a heatsink is going to collect a lot more dust than the fan attached to it. They're not implying this spinsink is going to be immaculate even if you never clean it, just that it'll be way cleaner than a conventional heatsink.
