So...I have a question. While my system is apart and I'm waiting for my Classified to return, I got to thinking about air flow and the fans in my mtec case. This case is a modified Silverstone TJ-07, which stock would have two 120mm intake fans in the bottom compartment creating airflow down with the power supply, and in the upper 2/3 of the case where the components go, 2 92mm fans on the back, and two 120mm fans on top. In stock configuration, the two 92's are intakes, and the two 120's are exhaust.
So, with my build, I have the Boreas in the top compartment with the 4 case fans, and the two FZE's in the bottom compartment. The Boreas and FZE are all set to pull air through the heatsinks, and blow it out of the case, just like they are set from Coolit.
I am thinking that I need to turn the 4 fans in the top of the case into intake fans, so have the two 92's, and the two 120's on top, all blowing air into the case. With the two big exhaust fans on the Boreas, and the two big exhaust fans on the FZE's, it seems to me that I need to have all the cold air I can being pushed into the case.
Any thoughts on this, it makes sense to me, but I've also never had the rear and top fans used as intakes before.
Also....should I be looking at replacing the stock Silverstone fans with some more powerful high cfm fans instead? I'd like to have the airflow in more balanced with the exhaust being pulled out.
Thanks for your advice.
