Less dust on your fans = Longer Lifetime.

They're a very good idea. You just need to clean them.

I've noticed that many cases "default" to negative pressure. The Antec 300 comes with 2 exhaust fans only. According to CoolerMaster my CM690 is recommended to run at a negative pressure. It is all so confusing.
Well you kind of have to find a sweet spot. You can easily have too much positive pressure and have your temps go up. I usually accomplish this by fan speed. If I have a lot of intake fans I tend to run my exhaust fans at a faster speed. Thats why I love having a 140 or 200mm fan on the top of the case. So I may run my intakes at low speed and my 140 exhaust at med. It's just a trial and error thing.

She has posted but not without taking some of my blood. Not sure exactly where but my finger caught a sharp edge.

Also my 300 is slightly different in that it has a CPU cut-out. I guess they changed the design. The cut-out does not align properly with AMD's stuff however.

Your 300 has a CPU hole cutout?

Mind taking pictures, not that I doubt you, I'm just curious.

Hi everybody Add me
Can you add me please, I am in possession of a antec twelve 1200 for almost 1 year already.

But it's been a month since I am without computer,I had a memory problem detection and start.
After the computer switch on and off all alone lol.
Power pc shrivelling, after seeing a spark I returned to SAV.burning smell that came from your motherboard or graphics card
I expect my power pc to test motherboard and graphics card hoping they have nothing.

As far as I know, the 300 has never had a CPU mounting hole. Could you take a picture of the case without your motherboard mounted and also take a picture of the back as well with your motherboard mounted so we can see how bad the clearance issue with the CPU bracket is?

If this pans out I may have to do some searching online to see where I can get this mythical beast.
