Don't think of it as $5 for a piece of stinking tape. Think of it as a cheap investment in your piece of mind.

Isn't there a connection between speed of the air movement and degree of cooling?

Anyway, everyone knows fans don't really cool--you need something to remove heat from the air... Brine... Condensation coils... Compression... Throw them all in a bowl and dip your chip....

You move ambient air through the case to accomplish cooling. This assumes your computer is in an environment where the temps are below 100 deg. F. or thereabouts. If I move 70 deg air through a case that has internal temps at 90 deg. it's going to bring it down. Try baking a cake with the oven door open . Same principle.
