In Vs. Out Air


Recommended Posts

i'm adding two 120mm fans to the side of my case. (door side) + the 80mm that is already there, total of 3 on the door.

should i have any of these fans removing air or just have them all

blowing in ? i was thinking that it might be better if i had the 80mm removing

air from the case ?

The pressure debate is a sensitive one.. whether to have your 80mm blowing out depends alot on its location on the door... and the rest of your fans in your case.. more info please.

the caes im using is an Thermaltake Xaser ll 5000 series

it comes w/5 coolers

two on the front

two on the back

one on the door

ive removed the one on the door and will be adding one of the 120's in its place

w/ another just above it next to the door handle.

the removed 80 will be added to the lower fnt. area of the door blowing to the hdd

area.

all are blowing in at this time, minus of corse the two 120s to be added.

hope this is enough info.

thanks. ;)

Whatever yu decide, you will want the exaust fans to be as high up in the case as possible. And yes, i also believe that positive pressure makes for a cooler case (more air to heat up instead of negative which = less air to heat up).

If you are going to add those onto the door into those poistions it probably would be better to have them all blowing in I think. Maybe consider adding a blowhole on the top of your case rather than another fan on the door maybe? (eg.. two fans on the door blowing in [maybe one on the bottom near hdd and one nearish to the cpu].. and then a blowhole on the top blowing out).

Yeah a blowhole would really be great. I would reccomend it being at least 92mm (120 are great... quiet and they move air like no tomorrow) so that way you can exaust all the hot air that is built up top.

 

EDIT: WOOOO HOOOOO BLUE STAR BABY! LOL I FEEL SO SPECIAL! :P B)
