nevermind those tiny little 80mm fans... - Page 2

post #11 of 21
You want to make sure none of your fans are going against each other. you want the fans to create a smooth flow through your case with as little obstructions in the way as possible. the side fan, front fan are usually the intake fans, the top, rear, and PSU fans draw the air out of the case.

Side fans, like the lower/front usually are blowing in fresh air.

Sorry to of hounded you then, it just helps us help you.

The side intake fan makes a bit of a difference in the case. Go for the 250mm one, big time fun!

you have the 150 pulling air out of the case? is it above the cpu? if so revere it, the cpu fan blows air through the heatsink, if you turn the fan around so its blowing in the case it will cool everything. leave your other fans on pull though. that way you dont build up pressure in your case

make sure to get some before and a after temps, this way you can really see the effect it has.

Some cases do not, mine I had to modify to put a fan in the front of the case at the bottom.
