    Where should I bring in Air?



    92mm Fan I will use

    Im thinking:

    - cut a hole at the pci slots for the fan

    or

    - cut a hole on top of my cpu for the fan

    I do have a place for the fan in the front of my pc, but there no holes for much air to come in but the bottom.

    If you bring in air from Alaska, your cooling would be great.

    good air for cooling, well that depends on how you have your computer set up, if the back is free and open its just as good as the front, but if it closed off , then the front would be better. basic sience tells us that hot air rises, so the lower the better.

    I hope that helps a little.
