Better Air flow?

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
How would I create better air flow? I'm kind of new at this stuff. How is the air supposed to flow? Bottom to top, front to back?

front/bottom to back/top. if you cant do that then just do front to back.

The air flow is usualy front Intakek back Exaust..

Depending on your case, You may be able to add fans on the side panel.

You'll want your air flowing preferably from front to back with as little resistance as possible (ie: dangling wires, etc). Fill out your system specs in the UserCP etc to help us help you Im assuming as well that you are talking about case air flow, as in, best setup to cool your rig down.

Front fans = Intake
Side fans = Intake
Back fan = Exhaust
Top fan = Exhaust
Bottom fan = Exhaust

Heat raises so a top fan is good if you have a hole for it.

Intake. It'll bring cool air to the CPU and GPU.
CPU = Processor
GPU = Video card

You said you're still learning, so
