    ok i have good temps in my PC because i jsut got a new HSF.
    I also bought a new PSU which has two fans and a case that has room for tons of fans.

    Ok first ill give u guys links of my case, and HSF.
    My HSF isnt an ordinary one so im not sure which way it should face.

    i dont know which way I should make that turbine face.
    should i face it so it blows into the power supply? because the fans would align perfectly. or should i have it face so it goes out the back of the case where currently i have to exhausts.

    well here is my case.

    i also currently have a side case fan in as well and the PSU is a
    420W thermal take purepower w/ active PFC

    so can u guys tell me what the best way to palce the fans are to have the best airflow, and tell whether they should be intakes or exhausts because i dont know to much about it.

    :shrug: :shrug:

    Great case, decent Heatsink.

    Front fans should be intake.
    Side fans should be intake.
    Rear fans should be exhaust.

    Id make the turbine bring in cool air horizontally. Align the intake of the turbine with the intake case airflow from the front, hope that explains it.

    Also try to balance your airflow. Try to have as much CFM coming in as you have going out. Actually having a tiny bit more coming it helps, as it keeps dust from coming in the cracks.

    I have 6 of those UNEEC clone cases and this is how they're setup.

    As for that blower on the heatsink it would be better to either face the open side to the front or downwards so that it can get the coolest air.
