Case Fan Speed

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I was wondering for optimum air flow, what speed should the case fans be running at? Here is what I have:

1. Front 120mm(air in)
2. Bottom: Dual 120mm(air in)
3. Top Dual 120mm(air out)
4. Corsair H70 in Push/Pull drawing air in from back.

Since the only exhaust fans you have will be the top two I would put two medium to high speed fans up top hooked up to a fan controller. Front intake can be a low speed to medium, same for the bottom two. The H70 I would say some nice medium speed fans (Gentle typhoons AP-15's), and the bottom two the same as the front. With a setup like that It's better to have a negative pressure system so that there isn't any dead zones.

TL;DR

Rear: AP-15's
Top: Med-Hi (fan controller)
Bottom: Lo-Med
Front: Lo-Med

Hope that helps.
