Default Max Air Flow

I was wondering I have 3 case fans a Northbridge fan, Volcano 9, and Enermax 2Fan Power Supply.

What is the best way to get max air flow.

I have 1 case fan in the front blowing into the case and 2case fans blowing out of the case.

what do you think

For best air flow you want 2 in-fans at the front of your case and 2 at the back (including PSU fan).

Ideally you will have a PSU with a fan in the bottom not the front (or both) and one at the back.

The air should come in the front bottom of your pc circulate round the motherboard area the get sucked out the rear top.

For good airflow, your cables will need to be tied up and together out of the way. This also makes your pc look tidy inside (especially if you have a 'window' in the side of your pc !

Also .... forgot bout this ..... You will want to leave a slot or 2 next your Graphics card free, this allows air circulation round the GPU keeping the card cooler
