Hi guys, after years of cheap ultra-low-end cases of unknown manufacturers, i've finally decided to buy a carbide 300r.
Now, i also want to get some fans for the case, as, later this year, i'm planning to buy a nice i5 k (whichever will be available post-summer). Also, i'm getting the standard version of the case, not the windowed, as i'll cut the side window myself, 'cause modded cases are the way to go
Now, my problem is that i never had to think about ventilation, as i've always used low end rigs, and it has never been a real concern. But now, i want to do everything as good as possible. So, as i was saying, i want to add some fans to the case, two led fans on the front, two standard fans on the top, and one on the rear. Now, all i know, is that front fans should be intakes, while top and rear fans should be exhausts. Here stops my knowledge about case ventilation. I've read about positive an negative pressure, airflow and static pressure fans, but i really don't know what to do.
I want a system as silent as possible, and my CPU will be air cooled, no water cooling loops. So, what kind of fans should i use? which ones are the best? How good are the fans provided with the case? should i keep them or replace them?
I hope you guys can help me learn, and thank anyone will help me in advance Edited by Coldheart29 - 4/26/15 at 4:09am
