about air cooling

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
i just wanna know if i have to have a fan in my case being used as an exhaust obligatory, im building a pc with a liquid cooling system and the fans in the rad that ill be putting in the back of the case are gonna probably end up putting air inside of the case instead of expelling it outside. http://cgi.ebay.com/ALIENWARE-FULL-T...d=p3911.c0.m14 thats a link to the case im buying in case somebody needs to see it
thanx for any help

why would you want to take the fans out, they would be cooling not only the proc but the mobo as well.

No offense, but there are A LOT better cases in the $280 price range... and yes, you always want to have exhaust fans... preferably 60% exhaust, 40% intake... a lack of exhaust fans will be detrimental to your cooling by trapping in warm air AND by turning your computer into a literal vacuum cleaner (you'll have to clean out the dust 5x as often)

Yeah, and notice how the exhaust grill is about 80% blocked.

no offense i know that but there is a reason why im buying one of those and the only reason im asking is because the person that was helping me to set up a water cooling system in the back of my pc told me that it was better to put the fans pulling air through the radiator and throwing it inside the case so i just wanted to know if i had to figure out someway in which i would have to move some fan to expel some air out
