how to install extra fans ?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
hello,
i do have a corsair carbide 400r case which has 2 led fans at the front...
now they do suck air and blew inside the case.... and the back fan which is at the back of case ...
but but..... doing the same that is sucking the and then pushing it outside ....
the back fan pushes the air outside of my case...
now if do install a h80 ( PLEASE NOTE i"ll install a h80 in place of the same fan at the back of my chasis) .....
it had to work on the same mechanism...i.e...
sucking the air and then pushing it outside......

asking again...
and ya tell me that if i do install a h80 it had to suck the air from inside of the fan and blew it out...
since . having a case which sucks the air from the front i do have to install the h80 and the extra fans in the same manner that they suck the air right from starting from outside of the case and then finally blewing it off my case from the back ....
am i RIGHT NA ???? mad.gif

help and sorry for being so boring and ya tooo long...
and like always thanxx in advance.. smile.gif

It's up to you as far as what you want to do regarding cooling. If you're cooling your CPU with the stock cooler, an aftermarket air cooler, or water. I recommend the Hyper 212+/EVO for air cooling but your case is also designed for water as there's room to mount the rad at the top of the case. With regards to the H80, mount it at the top and run it to your CPU block. Just to be clear on terms, fans that draw air into your case are intake and fans that push air out of the case are exhaust. Rule of thumb is front, bottom, and sidepannel fans are intake while the top and rear fans are exhaust.

THINK i got this...
as you said about that rule the two front fans at the front of my chasis are working as intake right ?..
if i do install a h80 in place of rear fan it had to work as exhaust i.e. taking in air and blewing it off my case... right ? thumb.gif
