I just didnt want the side fan of 140mm pushing air onto cpu fan while its tryin to pull away from cpu ..but if its not going to be a problem i will do it on saturday ..there is a few inches of distance between the side fan and the cpu fan.. i can measure distance if needed

Can you turn flip the CPU fan around, so that it's sucking air towards the CPU instead?

Also would it be a good idea to get filters for the fans?

If so where do i put them, like which side of fan do they go on and what not
post #16 of 66
Well usually the fan pulls air through the filter, not the other way round. Sort of like this.
And yes, having fan filters is great, keeps everything fairly clean for alot longer. thumb.gif
(BTW, you only need filters on the intake fans)

CPU fan pulling through cooler toward side of case is not bad. And if side exhaust fan is exhausting that heated cooler air it's even better. thumb.gif

We want airflow, not airblow. Number and direction of fans are secondary to airflow and getting heated air exhausted from case without it mixing with the cooler air components need.

Some pictures of what you have and what case you have would allow us to give you more informed answers instead of general suggestions.

If I'm not mistaken, I remember reading somewhere on the thread, that push is better than pull, and in this case it would also help keep the motherboard cool too. thumb.gif

Pushing or pulling makes little difference. Air moves over motherboard to cooler if fan is pulling at almost same cfm as it does if fan is pushing. Please read the highlighted part of what I said:

Getting the heat out of case is most important task. No amount of air movement will cool if the moving air is hot. The two main heat sources in a computer are the CPU and GPU not necessarily in that order. If all the heat they produce is removed from case the only remaining heat is from HDDs and motherboard chips.
