Ive currently got a Lian-Li V2100 case that seems to have some air flow problems. While the case seems to have decent air exausting capabilities the air intake seems to be less than desirable. There is 1 120mm fan at the bottom of the case that draws air through the bottom of the case and blows over the harddrives but there isnt anything installed in the case that would draw air into the section that houses the hottest components. Im considering cutting into the side of the case to put in an 120mm intake fan but Im wondering if there is another option that could be considered first.
I'm ordering a modified Lian Li PC-G70B, where I am going to add a 120 mm fan on the side.
Do we have any engineers out there that are into fluid dynamics or whatever its called that studies air flow. If you add another intake, your
exhaust will only do some much, consequently, your intake flow will not double, and may stay the same because of the pressure build up inside the case.
What is the air flow capacity of the fans? They are not all equal.
