Combining PC with.....A FAN!

This idea just popped into my brain last nite.Why not use strong automobile fans to cool the PC?Just mount it on the panel(geek points for duct tape)and off u go!Most engine fans run on 12VDC now and a pc has that,then SPLICE THE TWO TOGETHER!Advice and flaming will be appreciated

What's wrong with a fan like this one?

Oh yeah, and what would one thing of using a transmission rad out of a truck for a basis for a water cooling block?
. Sounds like overkill, but it should work very well. With that volume and cooling area, you may not need a fan. Set it up in a housing and natural convection may be enough.
And natural convection is so quite, and there is really nothing to fail since it's just a heat sink, it's environmentally friendly there is no extra power required for fans, and most important to gamers, it stays clean because you not blowing hundreds to thousands of cubes of air over it every minute......
Well actually I was going to blow at least a few hundred feet of air. Even without using fans for cooling, there still needs to be a pump to pump the coolant right?
even better yet, run hoses to reach to my A/C in my window and put the rad infront of that?
i've ssen this before, it takes like 1400 watts to power it!
