Hello!

I'm thinking about adding another case fan to my Antec 300 case on the side panel. I'm wanting to do this in order to cool my HD 5850, and even cooling case temp a little more a little more. And my question is, should I have that fan(Antec Tri-Cool 120mm) blowing in air on the graphics card, or exhausting air out of the case? The current case fans I have is 1 120mm rear, 1 140mm top, and a 120mm, both exhausting air out.

Your help would be greatly appreciated.

if you have 2 exhausting air out at the back then use the side one for air going in

A fan mounted on a side panel is typically configured as an intake fan blowing fresh air into the case.
