Storm Sniper case fans

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I purchased some Slipstream fans to install. I removed the 200mm side fan and replaced it with two of the Slipstreams.
I noticed while mounting them that there seemed to be more air flow if I put a spacer between the fan and the side of the case. The spacer is only about 1/8 of an inch. If I mounted them up against the case the air flow seemed to be less.

Is this a good way to mount them or should I mount them against the case?My temps are good and didnt take the time to notice any temp differences.


I also replaced the top 200mm fan with two of the slipstreams. That seems to give me much more air flow out of the case.

I doubt it would hurt but you'd really need to measure your temps to be sure what's best. I have 4 AP-121s on my side panel and the top 200mm is intake this works best for me
