You can do it a number of ways to be honest, either from the case out or from the outside in. it depends on the flow through of the rest of your machine, I.E have fresh air pulled in the front and exhausted out the back.

You'd want to go get some Scythe slipstreams for it though, go and get 4 of them and have a push/pull setup and you can connect all 4 to a single channel on that Controller.

Either that or just use a single splitter over 2 channels.. Both will work well biggrin.gif

I don't mind helping you out mate, it's not a problem, I'll hint at the button next to the " Multi at the bottom of my post if I've been that helpful biggrin.gif

oritee if the fans were inside the case and the radiator mounted to the top would the fans be pushing towards the radiator? i was actually thinking of getting
Noctua NF-P12 PWM - 120mm what do you think?

They are nice but not the best, if you want to spend that sort of money on fans then get the Scythe Gentle Typhoon AP-15's.... Best on the market for that radiator.

If you were going to mount them on the top (Obviously you would) then you would have them pushing out of the case... all the heat is going to rise, having it push down onto your components is going to make those increase in temps biggrin.gif

I'd put that on just the radiator, you don't wanna be blowing $20 on each fan, the rad is the most important one, the others you can use some generic 1200 - 1800 rpm fans...

orite fair enough, seing as though two fans are gonna be cooling the radiator that leaves only one fan exhausting the rest of the air out of the case right? is that enough?

You're gonna want to get 4 fans, whilst it comes with 2 fans already they are going to be of a different type and therefore run at different speeds have a different CFM... That's why I was surprised you picked $20 fans, that's going to be like $80 for 4 fans for your radiator...

You might wanna go back to the slipstreams
