Is 1 case fan and 1 cpu cooler enough for my system?

Hi guys. I was wondering if 1 case fan and 1 cpu cooler would provide enough cooling for my system. My case fan is a pretty nice 6 dollar fan. http://www.ncix.ca/products/?sku=38112&vpn=AFACO-12PP0-GBA01&manufacture=Arctic%20Cooling And my cpu cooler is a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus. http://www.ncix.ca/products/?sku=41337&promoid=1033 I was just wondering if this is enough for my pc. Specs are Phenom ii x6 1045T, a Radeon 7850, and 8 GB Hyperx Red ram. Thanks! :D

    Just to keep your pc nice and cool I would make sure you have a fan at the front bringing air in and a fan at the back sucking air out.

    Reason being Heat rises so you want a fan bringing cool air into the system and the fan at the back removing all the hot air.


    Let me know if you need anymore help
  3. Unfortunately my mobo can only support 1 chassis fan. At least I think so. :P So I'm forced into a possition which allows me to only have 1 fan. :( Where should I place that 1 case fan for best performance?
  4. Well you could connect more fans through splitter cables that you can attach to the one header.

    Where could I get splitter cables and where would I attach it?

    1, At Newegg
    2, To your fan header.
  7. I recommend at least one intake and exhaust fan. You need to dump the warm air inside the case outside.

    If your Mb has one fan header you need to have a 4pin to molex connector, like this
