Keeping it Cool

  Jackcoms 10:38 17 Oct 2003

I know we've had hot weather this summer, but the fan on my Dell Dimension seems to be working overtime.

The back of my tower (where the fan is situated) is against a wall. Is there a suggested minimum distance between the fan and the wall to allow for good air circulation?

I would think 3" as a minimum, but the more the better. Approximately 6" will give better cooling and also less noise from the fan output. j.
