I have read many debates over which makes for more effective cooling. I always thought it was something like:
- intake fans in the bottom front
- exhaust(outtake) fans in the top back
- make sure you have more exhaust than intake to create a vacuum effect to pull the hot air out
If you follow these three steps, then you should have proper cooling, so I thought. I have been reading up on some forums and there seems to be a high amount of people saying intake fans are counter-productive/ineffective. How true is this? I was thinking of getting a new computer case (related to this thread I posted earlier...) and would like to know if I should nix the intake fans for them or switch them to exhaust fans.
Oh, and in case your curious on what case I want...
So, bottom line, are intake fans good? or bad?
