So my computer's case is the BitFenix outlaw, and I'm trying to figure out what the optimal locations for the fans are. The case supports: 2 top, 2 front, 1 bottom (though practically, it is unusable), 2 side, and 1 back.
Currently, I have 2 top exhaust fans for the graphics card, 1 back exhaust (stock), 1 front intake, and 1 side intake.
My main concern is that the side intake fan is directly in line with my CPU's fan. I'm not sure if this is the best positioning, since I would think that it would stop the hot hair from leaving the case right away. So what I've been thinking is to change the back exhaust to an intake fan, and change the side intake to an exhaust.
