Question about my side fan that blows onto my video card (Intake or Exhaust)

I have an Antec 300 case. This weekend I put an 80mm fan in my hard drive bay, blowing right into the end of my HIS 7950. See pic:


Now that I have that fan pushing air into the end, should I make the side cover fan an exhaust now? It has always been an intake onto the video card.

What do you guys think?

  1. Oh ya, I have my H80 mounted on the rear of my case as an intake if that changes anything.
  2. Currently, you have 3 fans, all blowing in.
    Somewhere, you need to pull the hot air out of the case.
  3. I have my 140mm on top as an exhaust, and the PSU at the bottom.
    So are you saying it is a good idea for the side fan to be an exhaust? Does that give a weird negative air pressure near the video card?

    well...did not know about the 140.
    Only way to know if it is "better" is to record temps in both situations. Try it and see what happens.
