Hey there, just a quick question. I have a case with 4 fans currently, all 12cm. One intake at the front, one exhaust at the back, one intake on the side (feeding the GPU & CPU, and one placed at the top of the case, above the MOBO & CPU as an exhaust. Now, is this best, or should the top fan be an intake? I'm pretty sure the front and back is a no brainer, however I've never had a case with a fan on top til now. I'm running a 1090T, just finally a new build from my good ol' X2 4200!

Also, is it worth looking into an aftermarket CPU cooler/fan, and if so what is the best - - - and, should I worry about the c1e, or leave it? Sounds crazy inside the case sometimes with fans up and down.

Thanks for all incoming advice.

Yeah, you've got the fans set up right.


If your going to OCing or do a lot of gamming than its well worth looking into getting a aftermarket HSF. Now there's a lot of realy good aftermarket HSF out there but I would suggest the Corsair's H70 if you want one of the best.

SO, it turned out that one stick of ram was bad, right out of the box! I guess my worrying about the cpu heat was not the problem causing my sudden and random blue screens! Thanks for the info about the H70, I checked it out and it looks great. Not sure if I will go with one yet. I already have five 120mm, and one 80mm fan + the cpu, so I'm thinking it should be allright. The 120's are very quiet at around 8db, so it's all surprisingly quiet.
