Best fan configuration for Stacker 830?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'll be using a Zalman 9500 hsf and one 8800 gts video card (maybe two). I'd like as much airflow as possible since I will be overclocking an E8500 on air. Thanks in advance for your input.

I just have the front as an intake. Then I have 3 exhausts: the back, side(next to my gpu), and top. It seems to work well. I have my tuniq blow in with the top exhaust fan pulling that air out. I know its unorthodox but it works the best for me. Also heat was getting traped between my gpu and sound card and the exhaust there dropped my gpu temp 5C.
