Got a problem, I think its with my fans...

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I ordered my PC from ecollegepc. I have a fan in the front intake, 1 in the top, 1 in the back, and 1 on the side.

Im not sure about fan sizes but with my case, the top fits the opening roughly, the side panel has 6 holes for screws. The fan that fits it only uses half the space I could be using for a fan. The front fan covers the whole front bottom, and the back fan does the same.

What size are these?

The problem comes in that the side fan is exhausting air out of the case. When I turned it over to reverse it, the fan blades would scrape the case when I turned it on. It didn't damage the fan but it was pretty loud.

Now however, whenever I turn my PC on, for about a second I hear what I think is the same sound, and I am guessing its the top fan, I just don't understand why its doing it. Its exhausting air, I am just wondering what could be going on and whats a fix.

Also, are there better fans that I could be replacing these with AND what about installing filters on my fans and openings (like all the openings around the side fan area?

BACK : 80mm 92mm and 120mm holes, max fan size 120mm

TOP: 200mm or 2x120mm

SIDE: 200mm or 2x120mm


If you want to flip the side fan you will have to use some washers to act as a gasket to allow clearance for the blades.

The top fan would be 200, side 120, and the front?

Also, what about the top fan now making that noise? Should I get some washers for that?
