    I have a 120 x 120 mm fan on back always blowing out. The same size fan is on the front blowing air in, but is switch controlled because it is too loud to run the second fan all the time.

    Will switching the fan on and off (before and after gaming) cause bad power fluctuations that could possibly damage something? There are switches and variable fan speed dials on the market, so I assume it's ok...

    :dunno:
