I recently installed a CNPS9500 in my Antec Sonata II with 2 antec tricool fans set to medium. I am quite happy with it however i notice some problems. The case temperature increased after I installed my HSF, now a simple look at my case could suggest a few problems. The 9500 is running at 2400rpm and it's 5 cms away from my case fan which runs at 1300rpm. It seems that there's a air vacum inside the case. because i can literally feel dead spots in the case. Is there anything i can do to over come this problem? (The case temp drops instantly when i open the case up and air starts rushing out to the side)

Thx for the help

You just need to balance the airflow a little better you need to either lower the HSF fanspeed or increase the rear fans airflow, also on that case is there a side panel fan you might be able to use that as well.

You can get round IDE cables to replace the hospital-grey ones. This will get you a better airflow in your case.

It also gives you more space in the case whenever you have to get at something inside it.

if the two fans are so close together that their intake negates each other..you could try making some little cardboard deflectors that might help..you'll have to tweak them to get the airflow correct but if i'm invisioning the issue correctly...you should be able to break the "dead space" this way
