^O.O that's an Intel desktop board, and an old one at that...

@the airflow issues... perhaps having the top two fans on exhaust starves the surrounding airflow? ie, the top fan towards the front sucks up air that the CPU fan is trying to get, starving the CPU fan of air, and the rear-top fan competes with the rear fan, thus creating a deadspot?

On the other hand, with the two top fans as intakes, the front-top fan blows air across the RAM which is then picked up by the CPU fan and shot across the HS fins. Then the rearmost top fan blows cool air into that which the rear throws out the back? Seems like having a rear-top fan wouldn't be a wise idea...

Of course, all this depends on CFM. if you had a 30CFM CPU fan and a 100CFM top-front fan, with the top-front fan sucking out, then that really would starve the CPU fan of air, wouldn't it? If it were around the other way, however, the top fan/s wouldn't have much of an effect at all.

Seems kinda weird, but that's my only explanation for it..

BTW, these are just my musings/thinking aloud-on-the-keyboard, so feel free to correct me!

I knew I recognized that board! I sold that same exact board on ebay for $185 a couple months ago. Some people just don't do their research, lol.

I recognised it because of the tell-tale intel northbridge heatsink. every intel board (with the exception of the smackover) has had that heatsink
