Default Re: How Many Fans Will Be Enough?

I notice you have a 6800GT card. I would stick an exhaust blower right underneath that video card to force out some of that hot air. Something like this:

Dynatron DB1206SP 120mm Sleeve System Exhaust Blower

It does say that it's compatible with 6xxx card from Nvidia.

Oh well, too late, I bought it.

What video card do you have?

Well cooling is an important thing in computing i would reccomend one intake and one outtake fan as the minimum otherewise i would consider getting a water cooling kit as these are more effective.

Hmm, yeah, it's a godo thing I bought those two coolers, cause my GPU with load is 82-83 degrees Celsius, which explains osme of the glitches I've been getting in internet games. I just hope no damage has been done yet.

Default fans

my friend has had his computer for about a year, its a thermaltake case, and he has 7 fans all together. it sounds a bit like a train lol but the noise doesnt bother him, it wouldnt bother me much either, i always have music on when i go on the computer. whatever, the more fans the better, (unless you have a noise prob.)

My friend Alex just installed a TeraByte Hard Drive, I saw it, and almost cried.
