I have a little small hole at the bottom of my case. I was thinking of using that whole to put in a 144mm fan. But my question is would that help lower my temp on the mb or raise them? I know that the wrong placement of fans can be deadly which is why I'm asking. <br />
<br />
A little later when I get home I'll take pics and show you better what I'm talking about.

Heat rises, so I don't think it would make a difference.<br />

If you are going to do it, I'd probably make it blow in.

No need for a bottom fan. And a 144mm fan would be overkill.<br />
<br />
Edit : If i were you i would try and see it myself...

</div>Well, I have one and no clue where to put it... Thought it might help but it looks like I'll be taking it back. Store brought so no RMA issues.

I have 2 80MM fans in my case.Both are Vantec Tornados (5500rpm).But besides that to the point.I have one on front blowing on the harddrives.Keeps them all around 75-80 degrees.<br />
And I have one on the back blowing out.My CPU temp is around 106 Idle System temp stays around 91.<br />
If I didn't have these fans,I would be much warmer.I have tried it to see what difference it made.
