hi ya

unless you have about 1" of air gap above the fan... 
i say ( imho ) throw the fan away.... its just a noise maker
when the system is covered... 9 there should be zero difference
in temp between open air cpu temp and when the chassis cover is on
( should actually get better/lower cpu temp with the chassis cover on )

-- also use the onboard temp sensors to check the cpu temps...

-- and if one is NOT careful.... even with 2U ... you still
   done have enough air flow if you use the wrong heatsinks/fan combo

have fun

amd-1700+  in the 1U case runs at about 45deg C... pretty good ???
	( no fan above the heatsink .. ;-) but lots of other fans elswhere
