Do case fans cool components? Tags: Cases Cooling Components Last response: August 25, 2012 11:22 PM in Components Share adamp64 August 25, 2012 7:49:05 PM Yeah so I am looking at a new case and wondering if more case fans mean cooler components? Is the difference a lot? Thanks in advance More about : case fans cool components 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. adamp64 August 25, 2012 9:20:53 PM Will the Corsair H60/H80 CPU cooler help cool other components?

The case fans will then cool the other components in your build. stickg1 August 25, 2012 10:59:17 PM You need case fans either way, but it is possible the H60/H80 could help lower temps on your components by keeping hot air out of the case. You will still want fresh air coming in to the case. 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. jldevoy August 25, 2012 11:22:23 PM Go for bigger fans over lots of fans, they can spin slower and thus reduce noise.
