Air vents for an acrylic case

hi

I'm planning to build an acrylic case, with reduced cost, so 'm trying build it with only one back out take fan. Is this possible to build an acrylic case without proper airflow facility?

Also could any damage possible to the hardware without proper vents?

Thank you guys... :)

  1. Look around at acrylic cases on custom pc forums, etc. Also, look at regular case designs and how they are vented.

    I would say if you are going with one 200mm fan exhaust out the top or the top/rear of the case. With the input 200+mm being at the bottom front.

    It all depends on what you plan to put in the case, really. If it is low power/heat components than no worries. If you are building a gaming case then you might be struggling to push the air well enough with your own design. Study what others have done and minimize trial and error.

    Remember, heat rises. So input at front bottom, output at top rear to get anything close to a good flow.

  3. Nope, you still need vents, you must have airflow.
