Solved Case fans Tags: Power Supplies Cases Fan Components Last response: August 23, 2012 8:51 AM in Components Share machmach_3 August 23, 2012 6:25:34 AM I think this is a silly question but plz bear me I need to is there a specific fan that exhaust air and specific fan that intakes air or a single fan can work as intake and exhaust by flipping it? More about : case fans a little black duck August 23, 2012 6:49:48 AM They can be used for either intake or exhaust. It has more to do with where they are. Best results are usually, front, bottom, and side are intake. Rear and top fans are exhaust. Hope that helps. m 0 l machmach_3 August 23, 2012 7:01:46 AM So a single fan works as exhaust or intaker according to my placement fins facing outward or inwards right? m 0 l Related resources where to put pc case fans - Forum Need help with NZXT H 440 case, don't know how to power/connect the fans - Forum How can i menage the speed of my case fans-lower or speed up - Forum The case i have has 6 fans prebuilt into it, do i need any more? - Forum How do I position my case fans? - Forum Can't find your answer ?

Yep. Just like that. You don't want to go overboard with the number of fans though. Too many fans can cause turbulent airflow and that actually hinders cooling.
