Couple questions about fans and air flow

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
1.My antec 900 is coming in monday and I want to put a 120mm blue LED side fan for my single slot GPU. I have never bought a fan in my life so please fill me in on what and where to buy a good blue led fan. Also will this fan make any difference? If I get it should it be intake or exhaust?

2.My psu has only one fan thats at the bottom of it if looking at it correctly. Now when I install this psu should I flip it upside down so the fan is blowing up? Kinda dumb question but just confirming.

1. I've got 4 of these fans and they are great. http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...e=COOLERMASTER It should be intake.
2. Well if its being mounted on the bottom and the fan is right against the case floor then yes the fan should be faced upwards.
