I have 10 there loud but i dont care

Ight, my psu has a 2 (so ill dremel where the second one is so it can breathe)


for the 10, i was thinking

2 on the top
1 in the front
for sure atleast one on the side, maybe 4 or 5 like this

X top X
S
I
D X << middle
E
X Bottom X


X= a fan

two in the back
I can get some in the bottom most likely, but should i ? (i could rase the case on stilt type things a few inches up...

Also which way for them to flow?

Make sure that your airflow looks like this ^^^^

I wouldnt put anything in the bottom of the case.

Places to put fans:
2 on bottom-front (intake)
2 on top-middle (exhaust)
6 on back (exhaust) (not really needed)



Im not really sure why you need/want that many fans. You can only get so cool with air...

If you were interesting in better cooling, learn about water cooling.

Some tips.. if you're not doing it already.. buy some rubber dampners for your fan.. it will help reduce some of the noise.
You can get them from frozencpu.com and xoxide.com.
If you're pushing/pulling that much air/CFM, i doubt you'll need any intake fans.. basic physics will displace whatever air you're exhausting and if you're exhausting with that many fans, physics will do that same work as an intake fan or two.

Yeah, I wouldn't put any on the bottom, but that's just me. I'd get the two in the front as intake, one or two on the side as intake, and two on the top and two on the back as exhaust.
