Windows 7: Case Cooling

Case Cooling

I just built a new computer and need help on the best place to put an extra fan I have.
Currently I have a fan blowing air in from the front, one on the side panel blowing air in, and a fan blowing air out in the back. This Cooler Master case has two extra places on the top and a place in the bottom of the case for fans. Where would be the best place to put another fan I have and which direction should it move the air... in or out?

Thanks,

Casey

I am sorry for that, I didn't mean to. I thought the posts I created were on different subjects.

As much air as you move out of the case, you want replaced. It is also wise to keep air moving in one direction, as that will help alleviate problems with air streams hitting eachother and not being exhausted out.

Case,
Different topics still the same post :P

The best fan placement is blowing out of the hole cut in the mini fridge through the de-humidifier and into the case

Granted I doubt you want to go that far :P

Flow the air in from the front and bottom/side if available then exhaust out the back and top.

So with just one extra fan right now should I put it on the bottom blowing in or at the top blowing out? Also I have an MSI 870-G45 MB, will I be able to hook a fourth fan straight to it or will I have to hook it straight to the power supply?

Thanks a lot for the help,

Casey
