I just wanted to see what other peoples opinions were on this...

I bought a BitFenix Prodigy ITX case and added a 230mm front intake fan. I have 140mm fan in the back, and a 140mm fan at the top.

Since the motherboard is horizontal, I was thinking of adding a horizontal heat sink to push the air upwards and use both the back and top fan as exhaust, rather than having the top fan as intake and the back fan as exhaust with a vertical cooler.

Would that make sense? Or should I just stick to rear exhaust only?

The only reason I am really considering it is more for aesthetic purposes. I don't think it will matter either way for my uses lol.

In all honesty, most tower coolers simply have more cooling area.

I have a smaller case with a Gemini S with the fan blowing UP and have had good results, but I am almost sure a tower would perform better.

Crammed. :)
