Hi Folks just setting up new pc E8500, 9600gt, 4gig ram, 800w power supply, all running stock no overclocking. Im going to have a 120mm exhaust fan at the back of the case , a120mm fan at the front pushing air in and a 80mm on the side pushing air in, also got an artic freezer 7 pro, to put in, do u think this will be enough to keep the system nice and cool? or should i have the exhaust blowing inwards aswell?
any advice would be welcome. thx :thumbsup:

That should be Ok as long as you put the heatsink for the CPu pointing towards the exhaust fan on the back of the case.

Thx for the reply Skytech, ive just seen a cooler that everyone says is great a zalman 9700 if it fits my board ok i might get that instead, even though its twice the price of the Arctic. Thx for the reply again :thumbsup:

Since everything is running at stock speeds, 1 exhaust fan is fine, putting in an extra intake fan will just make more noise

I only have 1 exhaust fan in my Lian Li case and that is all I need, even overclocked. It is also important to reduce clutter inside the case to assist air flow.
