Intake or exhuast fan behind the motherboard - Azza Hurrican 2000 Case

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello, so I recently purchased an Azza Hurrican 2000 case with a unique feature. It has a 120mm fan right behind the motherboard. By default, it is an exhaust fan.

Should I convert it to an intake fan w/ panty hose as a filter? Would that help decrease CPU temps? cool.gif

I dont think so because the CPU Cooler pushes air into the CPU Heatsink, if you'd set your mobo fan to Intake it'll just make the CPU Cooler's job less efficient.headscratch.gif
You can always try though...

I say take the thing off. It's probably creating more noise than airflow.

You misunderstand.

Interesting, having that blowing air onto the back of your motherboard might help decrease the temperature of your motherboard a bit but I don't think it'd have any real effect on your cpu temperatures.

Hard to say without testing though.
