New Build - case fans query

  Marky_Bhoy 22:45 05 Mar 2004

I have just built a new PC.

There was plenty of room in the case for a couple of addtional case fans.

Should they blow air in or out of the case?

Could I have one blowing air in and the other blowing air out?

thanks in advance

as a rule the front ones suck air in and the back and side ones blow out.

Ideally one low down at the front sucking cool air in and over warm components - one high at the back blowing warm air out.

just to add the idea is to create a through flow not a current circulating inside the case. hope that explains it for you.
