  1. Guys with case being weird with the power supply in front and I have it horizontally what should I put my fans as intake or exhaust
  2. Best answer
    Front and side intake, top and rear exhaust. If the 120 mm fan fits in front, use it instead of the 80 mm.

    Oops I meant the front takes only a 80mm fan but I see adapters that let you use 120mm fan in 80 holes hers a link to what it looks like http://www.google.com/shopping/product/13670393225033356380?q=80%20to%20120mm%20fan%20adapter&hl=en&client=ms-android-sprint-us&v=141338691&biw=360&bih=640&sa=X&ei=lW8UUc6cFcXS2gXSwYH4BA&ved=0CFIQ8wIwAA
  4. Yes I understood what you meant by saying 120 mm fan instead of the 80 mm fan. If you have the physical room for it, do it. Make sure you have adequate rubber dampeners to reduce fan vibrations and noise.

  6. Thank you!
  7. Your welcome ended up getting a 80mm fan with controller so I could crank up while gaming and dial down when I'm not

    Yes that will work. And another option is to get a 4-pins PWM fan, connect it to a fan pin header on the motherboard and make the speed settings in the BIOS. Look into that for the next time around.
