back sending air out of case, top sending air out of the top and side sending air into the case.Greywolf Ghost said:Just curious how you all would set up a tower with 4 fans.
I fired up MS paint and did a back, side, top veiw of my tower.
What will give me the best air flow??????
There is no space on the front for a fan. I have 4 fans to put in ( was going to filter intake)D.D. said:personally, i wud prefer having positive pressure inside the case (less dust gets in...supposedly if u use air filters over the exhaust) so i wud put 2 intake at the front, one at the side, and one at the back for exhuast. this is assuming ur using 80mm fans . if you have the option of using 120mm fans, i wud suggest doing what i do : 1 at the front as intake (covered with air filter), 1 at the side (air filtered) and one exhaust at the back.

Nice case :thumb:generalplot said:Sorry to go off topic, but Greywulf, looks like we have very similar cases. As for the cooling system, I've OC'd a few times, and all I have for fans on the case is the one on top and side, both outtake. Now that I come to think of it, no fans do intake (exept the one on the PSU. And I have never seen my sys monitor anywhere near the danger level.
goodness....thats what i get for working 14 hours overtime...i thot the two at the back were for exhaust O_O.First of all cooliscool you are just turning your airflow into a big mess that is going in all the wrong directions without any efficiency at all with thoes back fans going opposite.
which is when u get bigger fans that rotate slower and have less noise...or just get slower fans in general ...possitive pressure can cause evecsive noise
indeed...again i forget to mention that i have only 1 hd and that hd is located in the highest HD bracket in the case so that only the bottom part of it grazes the airflow. if you have many, it might be in your best interests to invest in a (few) hd cooling bays or what not if you dont want to cool your harddrives with a front intake fan (in which case if u just leave them there with no cooling ur risking shortening the life of your drive iirc)Be careful with front intake air fans. They can cause the air to pass over the hard drives and then blow hot air over your components. Which can tend to be counter productive. My cooling solution is pretty simple.
