    Default NZXT Apollo fan orientation

    I just got a new Apollo case and I have an extra 120mm fan that i am thinking about installing in the front bay where it is predrilled for one.

    My question is what is the best way to have the fans blow in my case. This is my current setup.

    1 side fan (in)
    1 rear fan (out)
    CPU fan (facing rear fan)
    1 extra 120mm fan.

    If you are going to place the new fan in the front then have it sucking air in. General rule of thumb is to move the air from front to back.

    That's what I originally planned, just needed the reassurance. Thanks.

    Just wanted to know if you were able to mount that fan in the front panel. I didn't think there would be enough room without having the front cover being loose.

    I have the same problem, it can fit but I'll need to loosen something. Guys, trust me the lexar aka NZXT fans are louder and moves so little air! I recommend Enermax Magma, more quiet\cheap\moves a lot of air. Bought 2 of these for front and side, using the NZXT ones for the front...which can't seem to fit without unscrewing something.

    I need help with that. Can you take pictures and show me what to unscrew parts to add the fan on the front? *the link has nothing to do with text below the link ;)*
