Re: Adding a fan... Exhuast or Intake?
Aspire do you even read what i write??
I've said over and over "set up correctly it will work great".
This isn't a matter of will it work not... It's about the posted situation.
The orignal case in this discussion is a gerneric case, no all mesh side.. barely any exhaust fans... a single 90mm. Not a high end case with 120mm exhaust. All side mesh with designed air flow.
Air in has be reletively equal to air out.
So if you start shoving a ton of cooler air into the case, and create positive pressure, your exhasts aren't going to keep up thus the flow is going to slow down and hold the hot air in for a long period.
If you pull air through in a lamiar flow, you suck air in through the holes in the case thus ensure all the heated air is moved. So on items like hard drives you get your cooler air passing over them, instead of having the heated air pressed into it. Sure the top components get a bit cooler, but that heat has to go over other parts to get out....
But what ever, I'm done with this, you seem fixated on an exact setup and thats it. So no use even having a discussion thats going in circles.
