post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
this is my current case





it only has 1 fan right now and i want to add more for better cooling, i plan to add a a better power supply second for a video card to it soon.


will this case support it? and could i pull it off with 2 fans?

what kind of psu do you have now ?
and more fans = better air circulation...

i currently own a cooler master 600w silent pro. it is making a weird whine sound when i turn the pc on (i think i spoke of it here)

it only has 2 pcie cables and i could only sli a 660 on it i think

where do you currently have your single fan mounted? (front of the case? in the back for exhaust?)
it is possible to get away with only having one fan assuming it pushes enough air to keep your temperatures reasonable. but i'd definitely try to have one fan mounted as intake and another as exhaust.

the fan that came with this pc is in the back. i going to try adding one to the front soon.

yeah i'd think that having a single intake fan is better than having a single exhaust fan.

and wow, i've never seen those before. i'm sure it would help somewhat but i'd probably just buy a cheap case fan first.

people using these mainly to cool their GPU, since it sits on a pci slot, It's better to get something like corsair AF series for a case fan

like these
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2618275&CatId=802

they come 2 in a pack, there are also single for $17, I recommend getting the pair, it will be cheaper and you can use them both one intake and one out

also 600W should be good enough even for 2nd card, but if you want to change the psu since it's making noises then go for something modular 700-800W, larger would be a lot more expensive.
