I have 2 80mms and 2 120mms:
here is some pics of my case:
here is a link to a pic of hole for the front fan:
It came with 2 80mm Aspire fans and I bought 2 Thermaltake 120mm fans.
I was thinking of putting one of the 80mms on the blowhole blowing air out(no mounts or hole size for 120mm) and one on the side hole in the case window sucking air in. also, should I use the tunnel thing that comes with the case that looks like it is supposed to direct the air at the cpu?
Then, I was thinking I would use one of the 120mm fans in the front sucking air into the case and one in the back blowing air out.
is this good? will using both 120mm fans be that much better then just using one? any other suggestions
I posted this in another forum, and here is the response I got. It doesnt seem to make a whole lot of sense, but I want to know if this guy actually does know what he is talking about:
" Well, i've never worked with that case, but i can pretty much tel you this.
Put (1) 120mm in the rear (blowing out) , (1) 120mm in the front (blowing in) (1) 80mm on the side blowing out - I wouldn't use your fourth one.
Using both 120mm fans as i suggested is only as good as the case design. You basically want cooler outside air brought into your case, to be mixed with the warm air inside, then the rear fan will remove the mixed air out the rear of the case. This mixing is what gives your case good airflow. Good airflow = better heat disipation = better cooling of your components. The 80mm fan will basically be for show. If you set up the (2) 120mms properly, the 80mm won't be needed. This will save you a few db in noise level as well as a few watts.
The round plastic cuppling that comes with that case is really designed for Intel P4's or high-end 64's. That attachment only works well if you have the CPU fan reversed as to blow heat out and away from the cpu, then have another 80mm fan inside that attachment helping remove that heat from the CPU. Other wise, don't use it.
