Default Re: Upgrading my computer

u shouldnt need a very fast fan for the top of your case, i prefer the slower rpm fans because theyre quieter, its best to have the top fan sucking air out since heat rises so u shouldnt need a very fast one

I'm sorry to correct you, but in my math class i always said rotations per minute and my math teacher would always yell "REVOLUTIONS!" So its a habit. Sorry. Ok, well thinks for helping me with the fan deal. It does make a lot of sense with having the top one pull air out. Crap, i had another question i was gonna ask, but i'm having a brain fart. Can't think of it. I'll probaly edit this post if think of it.
