the fans in the front of the case should be intake, as well as the one on the window. The fans in the rear should be facing out of the case as your OUTTAKE fans..... a lot of people mess up by making ALLL of the fans intake fans and do not realise that you need to blow the warm air OUT of the case...

Thanks for the info!

My rear fans are blowing air outward, and my front fans are intaking air.

I found that my side panel fan was blowing outward, as well as the fan that is at the top of the case.

I will try and switch these two fans around, and get back to you.

Thanks, th3gh05t
