I recently purchased a thermaltake case for my new computer, and the fan on the CPU is LOUD.
I bought corsair C80 liquid cooling system to quiet my system down.
The C80 Liquid Cooler unit has 2 120mm fans, and I know it should blow from outside the case to the inside so cool air runs over the grill.
I cant install the cooler fan to the open spot in the bottom of my case because the coolant hose wont reach. The cooler hose can only reach the rear fan.
I am guessing the best thing to do would be put the cooler fan in the rear as intake, then add another fan to the bottom as an exhaust. I would then have 3 intake and 2 exhaust, but I am destroying the "flow" of air through the case then.
I don't overclock and I'm not the kind of guy that gets excited if my CPU temp drops a little.
In summation- do you think this is the best way to do this?
TL;DR - my current computer case has a 'flow' of air from one end to the other. If I move the fans no longer have that 'flow'- is there going to be a significant penalty for me?
