okay so i have alot of fans in my computer but my temps wont drop
yes im overclocked, But i am still trying to get cooler temps.
okay heres my set up

120mm rear intake (led)
120mm front intake (non led)
120mm top exhaust (nonled)
80mm side intake (led)
modded BT with an led fan
and im in the process of modding 2 of my 5.25" drive bays for another 80mm led intake fan

okay i dont know much about air flow but even after i just added the 120mm fan to the top of my computer i still have the same temps

the 120mm rear fan blows across the bt BUT i with that the bt was mounted differently but i dont know if i can do that

its kind of like this

side
|
|~( )
|~(BT)

~=airflow
okay if you have ever looked at the heatsind on the BT its like this
|||||||||||||||||||||||||||
|||||||||||||||||||||||||||
my problem is that the airflow of my 120mm rear is liek this

~|||||||||||||||||||||||
~|||||||||||||||||||||||

i would like to have it like this

~==============
~==============

anyone know if i can turn the BT to fit my needs?

okay as my computer is it is about 36C idle and about 50-52C load
i do believe that i have excess AS5 in there which i am going to change but i need to know if there is any ways that i can turn my fans so i can get better air flow and Better temps
keep this in mind though i have all intake fans and 1 exhaust on the top (heat rises)
also my side 80mm fan blows directly into the bottom right of my big typhoon
and my case is a Dracula X from Logisys

All fans at the back of your case as a rule Should be Exhaust Fans and the ones at the fron should be intakes. The one on top of course should be an exhaust due to the fact the Heat rises.

The rear fan shouldn't be intaking ... you should turn it around so it's exhausting air. Give that a try and see what happens. The rest of your setup seems ok. Good luck!

Its very Imprtant to have a balance of Intakes and Exhausts or the Airflow in your case will be all wrong.

Yes also as said above you need to have your Side fan on Intake so leave that one as it is.

Well really you should have more air being sucked into your case than being blowing out
