Zalman Z9 plus

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Just a quick question. I currently have the Zalman z9 plus case wich has space for 7 fans. I currently have the stock 4x120mm fans. I can go up to 4x120mm and 3x140mm if I remember correctly. My question is should I have 3 intake and 4 exhaust fans or 4intakes and 3 exhaust. What would or should be better. Or should I stay at 6 with a 3 intake 3 exhaust.

I prefer a little more intake than exhaust. Intakes are typically more restricted than exhaust; air filter, more restrictive grill, HDD cage, etc. And don't confuse number of fans with amount of airflow... or airflow with airblow

airflow is flowing cool air from intake to component and flowing hot air from component out of case without the hot air mixing with the cool air.

airblow is lots of fans blowing air with some of hot air from components mixing with cool air making it warmer resulting in warm air not cooling components as well as the cool air will.
