Windows 7: Quick Airflow Question (Diagram included)

Quick Airflow Question (Diagram included)

I was trying to clarify through my studies and elsewhere that the airflow as of right now is being properly implemented as shown in the diagram.

Also, I'm wanting to add atleast one more fan to one of the open slots on the case. Would I need to use the fan as an exhaust? Considering the heat sink acts as an exhaust would it even be worth it to put a fan there and could it mess anything up with the airflow.

Hi
Yes if you add more fans they would be good on top and as exhaust since you already have 2 on the front as intakes

One note about the power supply if the fan on it is facing up it pulls air though it from inside the case and pushes out the back
Most people make the fan on the psu face down so it pulls cool air through the bottom and pushes it out through the back
That depends if the case has a filter screen on the bottom of it or not.

OK cool. My case does have a filter on the bottom. Not sure if it was clear in the diagram but the fan does face down pulling the air in.

Hi,
Okay yep that's good

If you want to add another intake fan you can probably add it to the bottom so you have at least one that is not effected by the hdd trays on the front if there's room with wires...
That what I have 2 on the front and 1 on the bottom for intakes

2 on top and the top back one for exhaust seems to be a good directional air flow design.
