also you have to think about positive/negative air pressure. with more fans blowing in (in a certain direction) you have less dust build up and better heat loss.

Well ,i've followed your way and after replaced the two stock 80mm fans with two Noctua NFR8 coming from a friend surplus, i flipped them around to blow inside as you did, and i removed the HDD clip panel to set the HDD cage grill free from obstruction and so had the greatest cooling effect and matched the least noise.
Now i have lot of air inside and a very low noise!!

Thanx for the tips!!

@ Darkgray, great rig!!! thumb.gif



waiting the courier for the video card and SSD.....

im glad! my temps are pretty good and im happy! you may even be able to put a 120mm fan where the bracket was or maybe inside the hdd bay. just as long is it works and looks good! instead of the clip use those finger screws and youre sorted!

ive just put an asrock fatality in my case and gts450 for second monitor/PhysX.

remember to post pics when done! looks good, although the pics still has the quick release clip biggrin.gif

im just testing what I said with the 120mm in the bay! its not permanent as got to get 5 or 6 matching fans.
