Cool Fan Advice

Hello, My new case has an Aerocool Turbine 120mm at the front and an Aerocool Turbine 120mm on the side panel. I need a fan at the back I will probably go for a 120mm instead of getting 2 80mms. I was wondering if it has to be equal or higher cfm when the front and side are added up? I have calculated roughly both fans together bring in 74.88cfm. Ooh I forgot about my Antec truepower 430 psu has a 92mm fan and a 80mm.

I want to try and keep my case cool and not should like a jet engine.


thankyou

djrock

Having a positive pressure inside the case (i.e., more air being sucked in that being blown out) will keep your case a lot cleaner, especially if you have some filters on those fans. When you have a negative pressure (more air being blown out) you tend to find dust builds up quite quickly, as air tries to get through every single little crack it can.

Hello, That rings a bell about pulling too much air out sucks more dust in.

What are the Akasa 120mm Ultra Quiet Amber series like?

thankyou
