Just picked this up for a new build. Two questions:
- should the fans on both sides be pointed to push air out of the case?
- should I replace the fans? I have three Zalman fanmates.
System will be in a closed Salamander Twin cabinet with the back open -will have an xbox360, ps3, and comcast box - not alot of air gets in there:
Kingwin 650w Lazer
Core i5 3570
Scythe Big Shuriken 2 Rev B
8GB Samsung 30nm
Samsung 1TB, Samsung 2TB, Seagate 3TB 7200, OCZ Vertex 60GB, OCZ Vertex3 120GB
Silverstone fans are pretty good, I'd keep them unless they're abnormally loud and then find a solution to that problem. As for intake/exhaust setup definitely use 2 fans in and 1 fan out.
