Optimal case cooling for my PC

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I have Chieftec CH-04-B-A-OP http://www.chieftec.com/ch-04b-b-a.html

As u can see on site i mentioned i have 2x90mm fan holes from each sides of my case,(i saw that many sell 92 mm fans i guss that is it?) and one back 120 mm fan hole(this i have bought its delta 120 x25mm, 110 cfm) ,and i don't have FRONT fan hole.I'm curious what would be the best setup to get MAXIMUM airflow possible,If u click on first link then"in side for detail" u can see how it all looks like.So,as far as i understood i have to put 4 90 mm fan to blow INTO the pc and one 120 mm rear fan who will blow air OUT of pc?IS that optimal solution?Also,which brands would be good to order(performanse ,read ariflow is in first place,noise level not so important for me)

Thnx

I would say the best airflow for that case is intakes in the front and exhaust in the back. It looks like there is a lot of mesh on the case, so matching the actual amount of in and out won't make a big difference.

It says "Optional 4x90mm" fans so I would wonder if there are provisions for 2x90mm front fans! If so add them
