Okay, I couldn't really find any information about this, but I'm about to get this cooler and do a 3 fan config with front fan pushing, one center fan also pushing and the rear fan pulling.

Now should I bother using a rear case exhaust fan? I've read that I should take it out. Rig is my sig for my case and everything.

Thanks

yea I read that, he posted saying to take out the rear case exhaust and the grill, but just wanting some more opinions

Edit: Which fans would be the best combo?

I'm still pretty far from getting to the best combo. But so far I love the TY-140 with two GT AP-14's. Not the most powerful but soft and sweet with great cooling on the D14.

As for that rear fan and grill, look at item 2 in my sig. I think that pretty well proves you don't need a rear fan if you have no rear grill.

No real numbers on the combos except what I have posted. Right now I'm doing an emergency Firefox 4 update on my Aeon and Scribblies themes. I wasn't intending to update, but users begged and fellow themers said it wasn't too bad. Well, it is bad but not impossible, which is what I thought before. So fan testing is taking a break for now. Having to re-learn css.

So something like this?

Rear Exhaust<<<< Airflow << Rear Fan << Center Fan <<< Front Fan <<< Airflow
Almost. Remove your rear grill and fan (see item 2 in my sig). Then you have:

Rear Opening<<<< Airflow << Rear Fan << Center Fan <<< Front Fan <<< Airflow

Much quieter. Goes better with your quiet heatsink.
