Default CASE FANS - To Blow or To Suck? Or Both? Or Not At All?

Okay, a quick poll / debate here on Case fans.

Should they should they suck hot air out of your case?

Should they should they blow cold air inof your case?

Or Should they should they blow cold air in from the bottom, and the hot air out of the top your case?

Or shouldn't you bother with case fans at all?

it's almost imparetive *sp* that you have the rear fans at exhaust, you can blow as much cold air in, but those rear fans help to get rid of the cpu and psu heat quickly, otherwise the intake fans will just move the heat around...

no offense.. but um this is a pretty stupid poll. It needs a intake so air gets into it and a exhaust so it blows the hot air out. If anyone disagrees on that.. then i dunno what to say.

Actually, you can have it just exhaust, and have little holes slotted somewhere on your case. But that setup should be used for cases that have like 1 or 2 fans. (2 fans if the 2 is in the rear.)
