Build plan for this summer (water cooling questions from a first-timer, help please!) - Page 3

post #21 of 23
Its pretty simple, having more fans as intake vs exhaust creates positive pressure inside the case, forcing the excess air out through all of the openings.

Having more fans as exhaust vs intake will do the opposite, and since there is no dustfilter in these places dust can enter.

Of course you can just fill up the extra PCI-e with add-on cards, but I thought I would just point that out.

It might just be in my thread about components, I mentioned that these components are basically just placeholders until I have the financial luxury to make the purchase of this build. The earliest that would be is August or later if I order everything at once, including water cooling components and cable sleeving. I have the feeling that I'm going to wait for Intel's new Ivy Bridge socket 2011 CPU's and PCI-E 3.0 GPU's from Nvidia before I set the actual hardware components in stone.
