Hi guys & galls

I bought this case, but I am not sure how I should let the airflow go.
I got 4 80 mm installed and a turbo 5,25 drive in front that blows air out.
Check this jpg out and let me know ;)

Many Thanx

THis is how i think it goes.

Hot air rises, so put intake fans at bottom in front, and outtakes in the upper rear.

I am not sure about the bottom rear space though.

Hey,

thanx but offcourse I knew that, it is just that this case has a lot of room for fans even on the side. Don't know what to do with them???

In this instance when trying to determine the position of case fans mounted on the side of the case becarefull not to disturb the airflow to the heatsink fan. IF you mount a case fan directly across from the heatsink then face the case fan to blow in. IF you have a place to mount a case fan on the top of the case then direct that fan to blow out (up).
