what would be the best cooling for my case

Hi, I am in the middle of my first build/gaming budget build.
This is what I have and what I'll be getting by the middle of September.
I have:
CPU-AMD A6 6400k blk.
RAM-8GB of 1600 with a CL of 11
PSU-Corssair 500M bronze
SSD-128GB sandisk.
HDD-500GB 5400 rpm
MOBO- MSI A55m-e33(came as a package deal with the A6 at Fry's for $80)

I will be getting EVO 12 CPU cooler, a MSI 750 TI twin frozer or EVGA FTW, and this is the case I want.

I was wonder what the best cooling solution would be for this case, how many fans, and which direction for each fan.

It will be fitting under a desk up against the solid panel so the window on the side is visable and can breathe. The top will have about 6in of room and I can pull it out a bit from the wall if needed for fans pointing out the back.

  1. I'd have all of the exhaust fans in and if you wan't all of the other fans filled. The most important places for intake fans is 1 on the side and 1 on the bottom.
  2. Best answer
    I 100% disagree with the guy above me. the only important places for intakes are the front. Often side fans make airflow WORSE. I would run a single front intake, and a single top and a single rear exhaust. That is all this computer will need to stay perfectly cool.
  3. the best cooling solution for the case is a proper balance between positive and negative air pressure so 1 front intake fan 1 side for some extra air for the GPU or bottom intake fan or both.....1 rear exhaust fan and 1 top exhaust fan will keep your case well ventilated and cool....the case u have mentioned i cant say much about that .....but if u have the budget go for the nzxt phantom 410 excellent case with 8 fan mounting options with 3 inbuilt fan and a fan controller....

  4. You have made an unfortunate choice for a case.
    It has minimal fresh air intake capability.
    Look for a case with two 120mm intake fans in front.
    You will need that fresh air intake to cool a hog graphics card.
  5. I looked it up and a side fan DOES mess with airflow. Which when I think of it it makes sense.
