Hi there guys,
Need some help with the fan configuration.
My cooler is the CM Hyper 412 slim dual fan.
I'm going to mount it with the fans blowing air from the back to the front. The fan facing the back of the chassis pushes air in and the other one on the other side pulls it out. So the chassis fans are as follows:
The rear 140mm fan as intake. It's about a cm away from the push fan on the cooler. This will directly receive some fresh air from the outside.
The front 140mm fan as exhaust. Yes the air flow will go from back to front.
I have 2 more 120mm fans on top of the case and i dont know whether they should push in or pull out.
The one closer to the back is right above the cooler. Should this blow air in or out? The one next to it, closer to the front of the chassis is just in front of the cooler exhaust fan. Should this push in or pull out?
I don't know if you can picture the whole thing, i hope i made it easy for you guys. Unfortunately, I can't upload pictures cause I'm not home. If you like I'll post them.

how about a better idea :) 

test them your self and look at the CPU/GPU temps and you "discover" it :) 

when you have the hardware , test your ideas yourself :) 

the top fans should be the same , either both PUSH , or Both PULL ..

i'll definitely do that. I've been waiting for the z87i pro to be on the shelves..

yeah it sounded weird to me to have one of the top fans blowing air in the opposite direction to the other... but i'll test them myself... can't wait..

thanks for the help

i see, but i'm not sure what the price will be... do you think it'll be more expensive than the pro? i watched another video where the guy at computex said that the impact was going to be released 6 weeks later... which would be THIS week... plus asus has released their 2 mini itx boards these days, so i guess we're not all that far...
