top two fans out.
Rear fan out. (by cpu) cpu fan should be blowing straight out in the same direction if possible. if it doesn't you can reverse the rear fan to blow in.

every other fan blows in. (no side panel fan?)

If you have more fans blowing out than in... lower the speeds of the fans blowing out a bit and increase the fan speeds blowing in.

If you don't have fan control then you buy fans based on CFM. Slightly higher CFM in than out = positive pressure.

Here is a picture of when the rear fan SHOULD blow out.

Awsm Pc dude :)

And secondly, Silverstone casing costs more than CM Elite 371, but note that 371 has 8 fans: 1 front with filter, 1 bottom with filter, 2 top with filter and 1 rear w/o filter, and 2 at side window.
Whereas, Silverstone has 5 fans: 1 front with filter, 2 top with filter, 1 rear and 1 bottom w/o filter, no side fans.


Now tell me what would u purchase in term of better air cooling??

You don't need filters on anything blowing out. You can reverse the rear fan in your case then if you want. You'll then have positive presure.

Test it dude. Check all your temps with CPUID - System & hardware benchmark, monitoring, reporting

run it under load for a while and keep it running in the back ground while you play games etc. It will record the highest temps.

Then reverse the rear fan and do it again and see which works better.

hah.. god there is so much to choose from. I like quiet computers personally.

Noctua fans are really solid but ugly. Brown is the cheapest color to make ;-)

I would start with 3rd party cpu cooling if anything. It all starts with keeping that sucker cool.

Peformance fans
