Default Fans.

This is just for my own knowledge but if i have something like a 830 Stacker and it has a wall of fans (4x80mm), would it be better for them to be exhaust or intake? I would assume its not good to go half-half when there right next to each other but yeah. Just wondering.

Well, it is hard to say. If your case has a lot of open spaces that can let air in around the case, exhaust would be best because it can create a vacuum. If the case is pretty sealed up I would go with a intake setup.

I have the original CMStacker and all of the vents on both of the sides and top provide exhaust. The back also has an exhaust and the front plates have permanant internal sponge filters which allow vacuum suctioning for the intake. The outside of the front does attract dust which needs to be vacuumed off with a brush attachment once in a while.
