It will cause your temperatures to rise by a factor of measured vibration over the surface area of the TRUE. Be warned.

First of all, I suggest you calm down. Your temper will only make the oscillations of the vibrations increase exponentially.

Secondly, you need to get some peanut butter to lubricate the fan bearings.

Then, you need to hope that the vibrations don't damage the CPU.

Q6600s have a high vibration failure rate... so be careful!

As Silverfox said, Peanut Butter will lubricate the bearings well, but make sure it's smooth, not chunky. DON'T get any peanut butter on the mainboard or CPU!

Because of logarithms. They don't compute well when two fans are used in unison conjunction with one another alone. Have you never built a computer before? I thought this was common knowledge.

If you've got two fans it crates a double exponential function like this: f(x) = a^a^x

F = -cV where C is the viscosity of the peanut butter, which is ~250,000 centipoise - so you can pretty much work it out for yourself...

1 centipoise = 0.001 Pa·s = 1 mPa·skg·m^−1·s^−1 simple :)

Are you winding me up? Seriously ... if you're trying to make fun of me, I'm not going to help you any more.

You guys are evil. :D

OP - don't worry about the vibrations. :)
