Simple Fan Question


Recommended Posts

Just very simple, is it better to have more air going in, or more air going out of a case, cause a bought a vantec tornado for my side panel plexiglass window panel thing

 

 

and I dont know if it'd bre better to make it push air in (on my video card) or pull hot air out?

yes..

 

 

 

 

:)

 

 

 

really it is an age old debate...some say one way (positive pressure forces dust out)

some say the other (negative pressure pulls in more fresh air)

etc.

etc.

 

There really isn't a hard and fast answer... test it either way and see which produces better results for you...

 

Me?

I try to get it pretty well balanced...cfm in = cfm out

I usually have the fans in the front and side blowing in and the ones on the top and back blowing out. I have done it in a case all fans were blowing out didn't work that well the air just got sucked in throught the fans blowing out of the front case so its a good thing to balance fans.

exeter has it right.. the there's no real answer. it's experimenting in your situation to find which gives you the best result.

 

if you have just the 1 tornado, put it on your proc. my days of having 2 tornado's (1 proc, 1 intake) are over. i was afraid the tower would take off and fly away on it's own when i wasn't there. (yes it has a mind of it's own)
