    I saw it Newegg and I was wondering if you set it up with 4 fans on the side sucking out air or 2 sucking out and 2 pushing in?

    Because there is only 1 fan in the front and putting 4 pulling air out might be overkill. :dunno:

    If I remember right, that case can hold something like 9 120mm fans. :eek3:


    Maybe it only comes with 5 of them, but it can hold more.

    I would think that they put some thought into how they put them in there. If you have the one in the front pushing air in and the four pushing the air out, it will probably do a very good job of keeping the inside cool because it will create a negative pressure inside which will pull air in from every nook and crannie. If you had one, you could test out all the different options.

    The silly part is that, with that many fans, the wattage consumed by the cooling system alone becomes something to be compensated for.
