Is this going to be an issue?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Do you NEED an rear exhaust fan? I was looking to get the EK Predator 360 in my Phanteks Evolv case to cool my 5960X but its not going to allow a rear exhaust fan as seen here:

You can use any fan configuration you want, you just have to make sure there is sufficient air flow through the case to remove the heat that has to be removed, though haveing fans on multiple sides does help prevent dead spots where there is little or no air flow.

can you mount a smaller 92mm fan in the rear grill under the radiator? if not your front intakes should push air enough so that it flows out the rear grill. and I would hope your radiator fans are pulling? if so they will pull air out.

you might be able to fit a 120x12mm fan there http://www.amazon.com/Scythe-Stream-Kaze-Jyuni-SY1212M-1600RPM/dp/B002CYRRM6
