Is the difference a lot? Thanks in advance More about : case fans cool components | E-mail me updates | Report abuse Register or log in to remove nicko11 August 25, 2012 7:57:28 PM They do. Depends a lot on the case as well, the airflow and the material it's made of. And yes more fans means cooler components, it's usually between 1-10c difference. | Report abuse adamp64 August 25, 2012 9:20:53 PM Will the Corsair H60/H80 CPU cooler help cool other components? | Report abuse Engima August 25, 2012 10:36:54 PM I think it primarily cools the CPU. The case fans will then cool the other components in your build. | Report abuse Related ressources Will these fans keep my case and components cool ?? - Forum Best way to cool a small case with small fans and limited space - Forum Keeping a Full Tower Case Cool with Fans - Forum Will all my pc components fit in a mini itx case ? - Forum New case ?

You will still want fresh air coming in to the case. | Report abuse dudewitbow August 25, 2012 11:01:25 PM what they do is keep air moving inside the case to keep fresh air inside. compare it to like a closed room in the middle of a summer and a room with a door and window open. | Report abuse jldevoy August 25, 2012 11:22:23 PM Go for bigger fans over lots of fans, they can spin slower and thus reduce noise. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Components>Do case fans cool components?> Related ressources: ForumHelp me with the cooling of my case/components ForumHow can I keep graphic card and case cool ?
