I don't disagree with that, which is why I recommended a top flight PS. A good PS will act as your main exhaust. Heat rises and typically the PS is top-rear of your tower.

not in modern day enthusiast towers. you are talking about standard workstations.

nearly every enthusiast tower's PSU is at the bottom rear and has a cold air intake from the bottom.

Correct and some cases have a space for a bottom rear AND top rear PSU.

re: PC Case Fan Locations
Yeah, my psu has intake and exhaust.

My current fan set up has dropped my core temps by 8c and my gpu by 6c under full load.

2 120s in the front
1. 120 intake on the side blowing onto my gpu and northbridge
1 top exhaust
1 rear exhaust
2 120s on my CPU cooler.

Thanks a lot for the help guys

Glad I could spark the debate.

Woah wait...4 fans for 5 bucks? Is that legit?


ETA: Ahh, Tricky bastards. I went to order them and they charge 12 bucks for shipping and handling!

Guess I'll go ahead and order them anyways.
