View Full Version : Cooling and Case Panels

Wouldn't your computer be cooler if you just took the panels off your case? I understand stuff could get in there, but I don't have animals or siblings so the only issue would be dust.

It'd be cooler but more dusty and noisy.

well, you need some of airflow path.. If you took off all your panels, all your fans would simply be blowing air from around it, and out, not necessarily over the componets itself.

Or I guess you can have fans blowing directly on the components, but I'd imagine that would be turbulent, and require more fans than a proper ducted/pathed setup...
