Front and back casefan direction Tags: Power Supplies Overclocking Components Last response: June 29, 2011 11:10 AM in Components Share Ilir Baftijari June 29, 2011 10:18:36 AM Hi. I recently bought two casefans for my pc build. I'm going to overclock my pc, and that's why I bought these casefans. But I want to know which direction of the fan is better for cooling. I installed the front casefan as intake, and the back casefan as exhaust. It is good or I should change directions?

This works well based on that heat rises so hot air isnt left floating about in your case. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
