i have an iCute gamers case http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/produ...duct_uid=90997 in which i have 9 (yes, 9!) 80mm fans

i have two 4-fan fan controllers and on max rpm (2400rpm) i get 39 idle and 53 load temperatures

i have a zalman cnps9500 cpu cooler. do you think the number of fans is necesary? its a very loud rig and was wondering if i could get rid of some fans and not affect temps?

I've tested around with fans, took some out, put them back in and I really do see a difference in temps. The more the better for me, if thats the case with you then keep the fans. Plus you got a fan controller, so that'll help reduce noise when you need to sleep or whatever.

I very much agree with iNiMiTabLE, I think there's an FAQ on pressure around here somewhere that says equal and slightly positive pressure is best, but I practice a methond of overwhelming positive pressure (blows everything through and out of the case).
