    I got a chieftec bigtower and i can install 3 fans.2 on the back 2 for blow
    out air and 1 on the bottom for blow air in. And 1 at the side it blows in.
    My question the 2 on the back should they blow out or in for the best
    cooling above the processor.My system is on this site

    Same question....

    My Casetek case (not yet built) has 2 front fan bays, two at the side,
    two at the back and one at the top

    I'm intending to run a 2.4 800 FSB in it, with 2 80GB PATA HDDs and a
    9000 Pro AIW.....I'm looking to get away with one front fan (the other
    bay left open), one at the side (ditto) wth one exhaust at the top

    Can I get away with this (or even less) ? I'm anxious to keep it quiet
    without overheating (no overclocking also)
