Air Pressure Question

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Good morning overclock, I have an old Apevia tower model with the 3 120mm fan setup and the LCD screen in the front my question is originally the top fan was an exhaust but I turned it into an intake and the side is an intake, the rear is exhaust and the power supply is an exhaust. My question is these apevia fans have to probably be around 80CFM but the new rear fan I put in is about 133CFM and I leave every thing at high so my question is in this setup with to lower pressure fans is it ok to leave the top as an intake or should I go out and buy another high pressure fan and make the top and rear exhausts? with the one side as an intake ?

I'd keep the top as intake in that set up personally. I always prefer a positive pressure set up. I only have one exhaust fan on my case, it's on the top, but it doesn't move much air. I removed the rear fan to allow the cpu heatsink fans to have a free path to exhaust.
