My front and side fan is intake, while my top and back fan is exhaust. Should I have my Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO placed so that the hot air from the CPU gets blown out through the back, or should I have it placed so it is blown out through the top?
top and front fan - 200mm
back and side fan - 120mm
The traditional way is to have the HSF blow out the back, as it takes better advantage of the intake fan. In your case, however, I could see a vertically mounted HS actually being a good option as well. So really, I don't have a strong opinion either way, and therefore am not much help. So...I'll just uhh...be here at my desk...if anyone needs me...
