Default How many fans do you have in your computer?

I have : 3 PSU fans (1 exhaust two intake) ; 1 80mm rear intake fan, one CPU fan , one Masscool exhaust fan, one Vantec PCI card fan slot (has 2 80mm fans)

So total of 8 fans; Ill get pictures up soon

I have more! I have 6 80MM case fans, an exhaust slot fan, the CPU HSF (counts right?), 2 PSU FANS (120MM and 80MM), and a slot cooler.

So that's 11 fans.

Unfortunately not the best pics.. but you can see the window fan, the slot exhaust fan, and the 80MM fan on the PSU...

Default Re: Who has the most fans in their computer

I have, one on the CPU (obviously) -AMD OEM cooler...
two in the PSU (intake and exhaust)
one on the graphics card, 5cm (the card was getting hot so I put it on there)
two fans on a hdd cooling bay.

so I guess thats six in total... but I'm thinking with some heat spreaders/sinks and some clever pipework I could probably reduce that amount...
