Cubic Feet per Minute, a measurement of volumetric flow rate. Many electrical and mechanical blowers and fans are rated as to the number of cubic feet of air (or other fluid) they can move in a minute. If you have the diameter of the fan, you can compute an approximate flow speed by dividing the CFM rating by the fan's area. If you're a 1337 h^x0r type, you might be interested in the number of cubic feet of scorched air you can suck out of your case before your new overclocked 2GHz Celeron goes *pop*. At any rate, CFM's the right unit for the job.

That's it.

Boring, I know.
