View Full Version : Do I need an extra fan?
10-19-2001, 04:35 PM
I'll be getting an Enlight 7237 case to house the components I got compliments of AMD (MSI K7T266 Pro w/Athlon XP 1800+). Under normal conditions (no overclocking) with an ATI Radeon 64MB DDR, will heat be a problem and should I buy an extra case fan making three total (1-in / 2-out) or is the included fan and PS fan adequate (1-in / 1-out).

well I am a fan person and have like 10 or so in my system, I don't have any AMD stuff yet but my brother does and it gets how...
I would put all the case fans in ther space provided, you don't need to go overboard but will the spots that the case has for you

....when modding for cooling, CPM in should equal CPM out. That means if you have a fans pulling 80-cubic feet per minute out, have another fan(s) pushing 80 CFM in. This will reduce case noise and cause your fans to work at their most efficient. Try to get the specs of your fans, or think about replacing them with fans especially made for (near-silent) case cooling.
Also, use rubber washers between your fan screws and hard drive screws to insulate them from the case-also reduces vibration and noise.
(a few thoughts from a guy with a really wierd looking chassis)
