I figured this was the most appropriate place to post this as we all worry about heat and air flow here
Just had a thought when looking at my shiny new case fan...
Which way round should it be for best heat dissipation? Exahusting or Intaking air? I have 2 fans at the front which are intaking, a big 20cm fan on top that's exhausting and the (almost) mandatory back panel fan exhausting too.
A big Zalman 9700 HSF is crammed right between the top and back fans too, great for dissipating heat. Thing is, I'm quite sure I don't want to be intaking with the side case fan - but then again I'm no expert on air flow and the effects it has on cooling.
