What is better for side panel: (1) 200 mm fan or (2) 140 mm fans?
Sep 7, 2012, 12:27 AM
I have the Coolermaster HAF XM case.
Top: (2) 200 mm fans - exhaust
Front: (1) 200 mm fan - intake
Back: (1) 140 mm fan - exhaust
CPU heatsink: CM Hyper 212 EVO (2) 120 mm fans - push/pull
HDD Cage: (1) 120 mm fan - pushing air toward the GPU
Side: (1) 200 mm fan -or- (2) 140 mm fan
I'm looking to use the side fans as an intake to direct air toward my graphics card. Which is a better solution, given my configuration?

Which ever has the best cfm rating.
I believe the 200 is 110 Cubic feet per minute .
Since you did not state which 140s we can only guess.
