I built my first PC nearly a year ago, and learned a ton in the process. I never really thought that much about cooling though.
This past weekend, I decided to mess around a little and changed my air-cooling a bit. Pics are below, and I have a question regarding this setup.
I reversed the rear 120mm fan to make it an intake fan, and added two 80mm fans on the front above the 5.25" bays as exhaust fans. (their is an exhaust port on the front window inside the Infinit symbol).
The inside of the case is now 5-6 degrees cooler, although I have not had the time (or proper tape) to re-connect the thermometer leads to the GPU and CPU.
My question is about the side window. There is a small gap (less than 1/4 inch) between the window and the aluminum side panel all around the window. Would I be better suited sealing this gap so that the air is more pressurized through the case in your opinion??
Yes, I know, cable management is not my strong suit...
