Windows 7: CM 200mm Fans

Could you make me a pretty diagram of your airflow?

Then I could tell you if it should or shouldn't be working. Also, did you replace a fan, or just add one?

I'm still waiting for it to arrive. According to tracking, it is supposed to arrive on 12-2.

Sorry, linnemeyerhere did a better job than I could.

EDIT: The fan is an addition, not a replacement. However, it is the fan offered by the case manufacturer for use on the side panel, on their pre-designed mounting site. I think that I read somewhere on the forum, that someone mounted their fan outside of the case and got better performance, but I'm not interested in that idea.

looks good to me

But in case that is a serious diagram, you have some airflow issues.

lol. is that what your airflow looks like?

I mean like, take a stock photo, then draw fan position and whether they are intake or exhaust, though.

This photo is probably as good as any I could find. Just imagine all of the hard and optical drive slots filled. All of the PCI/PCIe slots filled and a large HS/Fan atop the CPU, and then imagine the resultant airflow.

Horizontally, with the fan on the front blowing backwards.

Sorry for my childish air flow graph, lol. It sounds like the 200mm front mounted fan spinning at 700 rpm is overwhelmed with the hard drives and can't push enough air into the case. I read it can be swapped with a 120 or 140 mm fan. This is where I would start.
