Airflow Sufficient?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Im planning on picking up a Lian-Li Lancool PC-K58 in a few weeks and im a little worried about the airflow. Im pretty sure ive been spoiled by my 200mm and 120mm fans. My average temp according to HWMonitor is 33C.

Here is my current case:

And here is the Lian-Li Im looking at getting:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811112237


Its got 2 fans. A 1500rpm 120mm on the back and a 1000rpm 140mm on the front.
Are there places to add more 120mm fans? Are the 2 it comes with sufficient for some moderate overclocking? Will I see a big spike in idle temps with the reduced airflow? And, more importantly, will it impact my ability to overclock?

Hows the market for used cases?

okay i belive you are just over-reacting just a tad, i think you should be dandy with all those fans in the case; i really dont think there will be huge spikes of system abilities because of a cooler upgrade; and if you have the money you might as well invest in a better case there are some pretty nice ones out there around for the same price as your current one

Alright. Thanks.
Ive really got my heart set on the Lian-Li. But thats kind of what I was figuring.
A 140mm and a 120 should be fine.
