This little guy would be the best of both worlds.bigger than a 120(makes a little less noise) but moves LOT's of air! +1 for this fan.

I'm for positive air pressure in which you always want more intake then exhaust unless ofcourse the air in your room is warmer then the air in your case tongue.gif If you have enough cool air coming into your case then a bottom intake fan can do wonders for your system by moving that cool air upward so that it blows through your cpu cooler and helps push the hot air out the top of your case. IMO having upper case fans set to exhaust from my own tests actually moves more cool air out of cases set up for positive air pressure then warm air. So it depends on your set up really...here is an example:

Holy old thread bat man!!
Yes, I am a Pure Positive pressure user myself. but it all depends on the case dynamics. Right now I have one top, one front, one floor, and one side mount all set to intake, and am not running any fans for exhaust, gives me great temps. Those post's of mine are 6mo old lol. alot has changed in my rig and airflow lol.

Allow me to welcome you to OCN.net! you should click on the USER CP at the top of the page and then fill out your sig rig:)
