    Perhaps the worst "innovation" was the floor stand that allowed one to sit a PC XT or AT on its side on the floor, where all the dirt resides.
    Just curious, what would happen to the floppy and CD drives? I've never done it before, thank goodness.

    Here is my new airflow idea. All I did was reverse the side panel fans so I have an even balance of positive and negative pressure. Is it important for it to be balanced?

    Is my airflow design good for cooling my system better?
