800D routing question(s) - Page 3

post #21 of 24
Thread Starter 
I had one other question to ask.

Which way should the 3 120mm fans above the top radiator be positioned? Do I want them pulling air through the rad, or do I want them forcing air into the case, and have the other fans in there evacuate it?

I'm a little unsure because I was thinking if I use them to push air in, wouldn't that be adding warm air to the interior? Or, is it not going to add much to the temp?

Hardly much of a difference. I generally had air incoming through the case and the top rad was pushing/exhausting air.

How about a XSPC RX360 top and a RX120 rear?
