Suggested fan setup on my Coolermaster Stacker 830?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
This is my first time buying a nice case and it will have a 8800GTX and Q6600 in it. It comes with 1 intake fan in the front (120 MM) and 1 exhaust fan in the rear (120 MM). I have purchased 3 x 140MM fans for the side (leaving 1 fan spot open as I will have the Ultra Extreme 120 heatsink also installed. I will also be purchasing a 120 MM fan and:

Should I use it for the top of the case or put another in the front

Should all 3 fans on the side be intake?
If the extra fan is put on top should this be exhaust or intake?

I would say exhaust is more important than intake, 1 is plenty for intake. With all that hot air (lol) in your case and in your head with those nice parts, you'll need a way to release it.

If you do as your suggesting you will have more air going in than going out..its best the other way round.

Look at my setup..2 of the 120mm fans on the side are intake (the 2 closest the front of the case)..2 are outake..I have 1 intake on the front & an outake on the top & back http://www.overclock.net/gallery/sho...4/ppuser/40469

lol, thanks everyone. I will stick to 1 intake on the front and probably just 1 intake directly on the video card as well since I will OC that baby along with the Q6600, lol

that sounds good

personally I try to balance my intake/exhaust so I can get a perfect airstream
