HAF 912 help please

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
I have been using a very old case for a while now, and today I ordered a Cooler Master HAF 912.
I also bought a 4 pack of Cooler Master 120mm fans to go in it.

I need to know what is the best way that I should install my fans for optimal air flow and how should I position my cpu cooler?

dual front intake, side intake and rear and top exhaust. this is what i did...i took the rear and front stock fans that came with the 912 and place those as exhaust for the top and took the 4 pack and put two up front, one on the side and one for the rear...to come to find out...the 4 pack and the two stock fans are the same model # therefore identical fans. what cpu fan do you have?

+1 that would be the best airflow.

Though if possible, add another fan in the 5.25 bay area to help CPU cooler.

If it allows you (cause some AMD mounts don't) face it left to right or horizontal blowing to the rear exhaust if not...up and down blowing up is ok too.

200mm for the front or top only...side is 120 or 140. At the moment I did 140 side and 200 top and front.
