    Which is funny because that renders all 9 of your fans useless.

    No airflow = no need for fans

    There is airflow in my desk; there is a large hole in the back that gets plenty of airflow because my desk is next to a door.

    Don't trash my setup if you have never seen it; that is ignorant.

    So if your PC blows all the hot air out the back, where does it get the new/colder air from? I'm just saying if you have no air intake you don't need so many fans. All you'll need is exhaust.

    And I'm still gonna "trash" your system 'cause my dad can beat up your dad. :rolleyes:

    It is a temporary setup anyways; you are partly right. The area gets so much airflow though it is irrelevant :D

    Oh, and my dad can beat up yours better :p

    Does this count video card fans? I've got

    1x 120mm front intake
    1x 120mm top intake
    1x 120mm exhaust
    1x 120mm cpu
    1x 120mm psu
    1x 80mm video card

    So that's... 6. Do you guys think I really need the top intake? I'm still undecided, I don't think it does anything for temps...

    If yer keepin' track of your temps then disconnect the top fan and check your temps again. You'll figure it out right quick. :D
