Case Fans ....... suck and blow

  Dragon_Heart 00:09 AM 13 Sep 12

Apart from my power supply unit the old cooling my PC has is the CPU cooler which sucks air from the CPU towards a grill in the side of the PC.

If I bought a 120mm case fan could it be installed to suck hot air from inside the case or can the only be fitted one way round ?

This may help:

"The 120 mm case fan is the largest standard case fan and can be used to feed air into or out of the case."

Fans extract air side is the side of the fan where the power cables are. My CPU fan blows on to the cooling fins. My set-up is, one 120mm fan at rear, cable side towards outside, so extracting and on +12v. Front, 80mm fan, cable side towards the inside, so in-taking air, and on +5v (half speed). Temps on idle are, CPU - 25 ? and GPU 27 ?.
