    I've had a few here for fixin' that the HSF's had so much dust in them that the fans were fouled and wouldn't rotate no more until I cleared them. :eek:

    Have a read of this article about fans, can be a bit heavy at times but does give a good insight of how fans work in a computer.

    i have questions about case fans... am i supposed to have a fan that blows in and another that blows out?
    if so... how am i supposed to set it up?
    another thing... are fans better w/ higher RPM or waht is the ideal RPM (after considering that overclockin will be done and noise lvl)...?
    note i can ignore noise lvl if it is needed for overclocking =P

    heh... i'm a newbie that wants to overclock my vidcard gf4 ti4200 and my athlon xp 1700... any tips would be much appreciated

    It's a good idea to have a fan in the lower front pulling the air in and then another fan in the back, higher up, exhausting air out. If you have to, carefully cut holes where you want the fans, first measuring exactly where you want the fans to be. I know there are some pages that describe the process, but don't have the links.
    Anyone know the pages these are at?

    Then you can power the fans either off the motherboard power headers if the fans don't require much power. But since you are looking for good cooling, you'll want to use fans with a decent RPM (80MM somewhere around 3000 RPM at least, probably more) and that will mean they would probably be better being powered directly from the power supply - 4pin connectors.
    Take a look at the Vantec Tornado fans. They move an incredible amount of air, but are among the loudest fans. If you don't mind the extreme noise these will do very well. http://www.1coolpc.com/tornado.htm

    Also you could go to www.thecardcooler.com and look at the card cooler section. May be a good idea to try one of these if you will be o/c'ing your video card.

    Hope this helps ya :cheers:

    Another good fan to look at is the ADDA 80mm hi-speed fan, they dont make a lot of noise but move quite a lot of air, 50CFM.

    yea...although for 80mm fans i'd put 40cfm as the comfortable limit...any more and they start to make whiny noises
