Case Pressure

Next week I´m going to assemble a new rig. I would like to know, since this will be my first self-built rig, what case pressure is best: a negative or a positive pressure. Could anyone point out the pro´s and con´s to me?

Thanks,

Baztian

  1. Negative would allow dust in through the gaps in the case.

    Equal would be equal. :smile:

    Positive would prevent dust through the gaps.

    Too much of either positive or negative can theoretically be taxing on the fan motors.

  3. When you compress air you heat it. But the higher the density of a fluid (including AIR) the better it conducts heat.
