Default Fan Placement

Right now I have only 3 fans. (Not including 2 on the PS)

Anyways, one is on the door and cant be removed.

I have 2 coolermasters. I will be getting more later. I need to know if i should put one up front for intake and one in the back for exhaust

or 2 in the exhaust and none for intake. If any of these will cause heating problems I guess I'll just go buy another one

I like the one in one out idea. That way you draw in air and help push it out the back. I find it more effective. It keeps a constant flow through your case.

Default Re: Fan Placement

The best would be one in one out. One in and Two out defeat the purpose of the one in because you can't pull more air out than what the one fan pulled in. Just make sure you have the fan/s in the back running faster than the fan in the front. You don't want to end up pulling more air in that what you are pushing out.
