i got a place to plug the fan in the back. but no place in the front. so should i go get one fan?(that is why i was thinking of getting a pci fan to blow air in)

so if the idea is to get circulation going, are there two types of fans, one type to blow air in and the other type to blow air out.

what make should i go for?

i suppose if i go for a fan unit, it comes with all the screws etc to enable me to install the fan on the case

well what you want is good airflow, and if you have good airflow and a pci fan grould then the airflow can get pushed about the case and it wont be as effective.

if i just use the single 80 mm fan, which will push air in, will that be ok, i mean the air will have to move out through any openings, right?

which make of 800 mm fan should i go for?
