Guys, I understand your logic, and totally agree that rear and top fans should be exhaust and front should be intake, but I have to say, if you have an intake fan speeding up air transfer into the case, why would you counter it and have an intake system on the fan? That doesn't make any sense.

Either way, this has been a nice argument, the OP can expect his CPU not to melt.

I should clarify. The inside of the case is not a source of cool air, the outside is.
No sir, the outside (cool air) is clearly be drawn into the case and is the SAME cool air that gets circulated through the case. C'mon Fred...
I just said that! The outside air is cool and comes into the case. I was saying cool air does not come from inside the case (it is not cooled inside the case), it is drawn in from the outside.

let me blow (tee hee) this in the right direction (HAR HAR) Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more! see this heatsink? there is a larger cooling fin and 2 heatpipes on the side that blows, and 1 on the side that sucks along with a smaller fin, if they did their research (which i bet they did) it would mean that the blow has a better cooling ability then the suck.

Sorry must have missed that somehow... But yes you are absolutely correct... drawing warmed air into the fins of the CPU's heatsink isn't going to help the cooling one bit.

For the hundred-millionth time. It's about efficiency, not power. Blowing will generate more power, but sucking is much more efficient given the way the rest of the system's fans are set up. It really depends on your system.

Darn, can't believe I said that.

Alright, like you said, replace power and efficiency:

My statement still stands.

Efficiency is meaningless if it does not do the job.
