Default Re: Help With Case Air Flow And Fan Placement

Bought the Coolermaster Elite 370 case today. Put the Coolermaster 120mm case fan at the front blowing in. Got my Akasa 80mm fan on the back sucking air out and my cheap 120mm fan(going to get a better one) at the top above the CPU sucking air out.

Once I set it all up, I ran the Heaven Benchmark and I could hardly hear my GTX460 spin. Loving this case.

Good stuff mate, glad you are liking your case and the your GTX460 is quieter!
