-Rear case intake OR exhaust- Typo in titel


So recently i got this case and im very happy with it! Sharkoon Scorpio 1000 http://cdn.slashgear.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/sco...

I got 1 front intake fan 120mm.
At top i got 2 exhaust fans 140mm each.
And a exchaust at the back 120mm.
My PSU is on the bottem with the fan above. [ Corsair 750TX V2 ]

Now i just ordered 2 extra fans for the rear side, but i don't know if i should use them for intake or exhaust.

I would appreciate some awnsers :ange:

So you bought 2 fans for the side panel correct?
Most people and manufacturers use side fans as intakes.
You might see a 1-2C temp drop but also more noise and dust.
The top side fan when mounted will prohibit the use of most aftermarket cpu coolers.
You really only need one side intake fan imo.
Personally i don't use side fans but too each their own.

I think he actually means the righthand side of the Pc,
I have one intaking onto the back of the Cpu, but I'm not sure where he'd place the second one, definitely intakes though

Looking at Sharkoon's website there's no mounts there Moto.

Thank you guys for the reply's.
I'm putting the 2 fans at the left side of the pc. So infront of the CPU

That's what i gathered.
You can mess around with intake and exhaust and measure temps with apps.
CoreTemp and HWMonitor are helpful.

Thank you.
Another thing, you mentioned dust.
How should i clean it? I heard that swipping it off with a duster could causes electricity statics and damage might components.

I use a filtered shop vac that blows air to clean my cases.
Canned compressed air is most widely used i guess.
