Question best way to cool ?

I have ordered 3 9mm fans and I am going to attach them to the side of the case, is it best for all 3 to go across the bottom, up the side or 1-2 at the bottom and 1-2 at the top?? Also what is the best setup as far the fans sucking/blowing?

I have a barton 2500 1gig Ram and a Geforce 4 128mb and want to OC them big time.

From a dust point of view, Spyders suggestion is good. However, in theory, the best performance would be to have just as much air going in as coming out.

Remember your PSU - its probably already sucking hot air out from the back, so you will need one of the new fans pulling air out as well.

Instead of putting the new fans on the side, why not put two in the bottom front panel, blowing cold air into the case, and the last one somewhere near the PSU at the top in the back, sucking air out of the case.

Just my two cents.

My PSU is dual fanned so it sucks air from the CPU and blows it out the back I was thinking of having all 3 going down the middle of the side panel so 2 blow on the board and AGP port and the top one sucks air out as in theory the hotter air will be at the top of the case, I would put a blow hole at the top but it sits close under my desk.

I have three 80mm fans blowing just over 90 cfm of fan in in a chietec full tower and two 80mms out the back blowing out not including the two fans in my psu both taking hot air out

this keeps my processor at 33*c at 2145MHz on a cooler only rated to 1800MHz MAX (2200+)
