Solved Need some cooling advice Tags: Power Supplies Overclocking Gaming Cases Fan Cooling Components Last response: September 27, 2011 3:57 AM in Components Share nuguai September 27, 2011 2:38:40 AM G'day to all. I'm looking for a new case to house a mid-spec gaming rig (2500k (maybe OC w/ 212+), 6950) and I have some questions for a case gurus out there. I really love the Bitfenix Shinobi - 3 inlet fan ports (front, bottom) and 3 rear (rear, top) http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_i... But I'm not sure if I could keep the temps under control, as it does not have a fan port on the side. If I only had two fans (rear and top) and NOT overclock, would this be ample cooling for gaming? If I had fans installed on all possible mounts, would I be able to keep a cool overclock? Please share any thoughts/better fan setups.
