    It is a know fact that fans do help keep us cool, it is also a know fact that the cause of this is that the air-speed increase heightens the relative density of the air, making us feel cooler ...at least that's my view on things anyway.

    To be honest, I'm not totally sure what I'm talking about, but perhaps it's got something to do with fast-moving air causing static electricity - or something.

    In conclusion, I don't have a clue why I'm writing this, or indeed, what the original question was. Perhaps someone else can provide a coherent response? Besides, I'm sure, in acquiring the answer, said person can reach a new level of intellectual enlightenment (even though I'm not exactly sure what that means). Good luck.
    Don't take this the wrong way, but, I love you.

    Fan + Block of Ice = Swampcooler.

    What fans do is prevent saturation of static air around components with thermal energy.

    You can't cool the components to temperatures lower than ambient with just air flow, but you can prevent the components from warming too much over ambient.

    Cool, huh?
