Windows 7: Best direction of fan coolling

19 Apr 2011   #11

Windows 7 Professional x64

whoa .. turns out the 80mm in the back was NOT powered. When I did plug it in, I remembered why it was not! .. it WHIRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRDDDDDDD

I've since got a new 92mm for the back (the front can only do 80mm *sad panda*). So now the front 80mmand side 120mm are pulling air in, and the 92mm in the back is pushing air out .. and the PSU fan too.

Things are much cooler!! idle around desktop, surfing is now 44*C or less .. and in WoW is 61*C

I'll still look into a better CPU cooler than my OEM.

I would experiement with each method a day or 2, and watch the results.

I prefer a Neg. AirFlow myself, but some cases/setups will do better with a positive airflow setup.
Try both and see which provides the best results for you.
