    You dont really need any extra fans, but do yourself a favor and get the H100i, not the H100.
  2. Do yourself a favor and get an air cooler not a closed loop liquid cooler.

    You do not really need any more fans.

    i was told to get extra fans to be set on intake and one on exhaust. something about being good to keep the heat down

    Disagree, I went from air to a closed loop cooler and will never go back. Depends on your preference though.
  6. The Phanteks PH-TC14PE_BK or the Noctua NH-D14. These will cool just as well as a closed loop liquid cooler and be MUCH quieter.
  7. what about the other point i brought up?
  8. Alot of fans do not keep stuff cool. Correctly placed fans keep stuff cool. A front intake and a rear exhaust fan are all that is really needed.

    okay updating my fans to Corsair
    Air Series AF120 Performance Edition (2-Pack)
    CO-905000 so back case fan and then a lower intake fan correct?
  10. Best answer
    Yeah, the rear fan should be an exhaust and the front should be an intake.
