Air Cooled Case

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Help!

Okay. I'm very confused here.

I was told to have = to more intake fans than outtake for better cooling, but if that is the case, then why do most of the 'good cooling' cases seem to have more outtake fans instead of intake? ((PSU fan counts as an outtake fan))

All I want to do is get the best cooling out of my soon to be modded case.

Thanks,

It's not the number of fans unless they're all identical, because they're all rated at different flow rates. The real use of fans is to eliminate hot air, intake fresh cool air and remove any potential hotspots.

If you have fans blowing where they should, and breathing where they should then you're okay.

F.Y.I. Most agree that having a negative pressure (greater exhaust) is better for cooling, whereas having a positive pressure (greater intake) will keep your case cleaner.
