Default Which is best - 1 x 120mm case fan or 2 x 80mm?

Hello all,

Which is best from a cooling point of view - a single 120mm case fan or 2 80mm case fans?

Thanx

Thanks for that - out of interest how does this plug into the PSU? Is it just a standard molex?

Either that or a 3 pin plug that connects to your motherboard.

don't plug a 120mm into the motherboard, get a 3pin to 4pin molex adapter its hard on the mobo to run that big of a fan
