i think the best is to let one fan suck air in and one fan blow air out... So let one face inside the tower and the otherone outside ;)

One at the (low) front sucking in, on on the (high) back blowing out. If the fans sit together they must blow the same way or the airflow will be all wrong.

Just in case you didn't know how to tell which way the airflow will go, there are two arrow on the side of the fan, one shows the direction the fan will spin and the other shows the direction of the airflow.
If you already knew that, sorry.

I had a fan on the side blowing out. I moved it to blow out on the back instead. Temps dropped 5-10C depending on load. Now air gets sucked in through the side instead. But then again I don't have a front fan so that may be the cause. Try both ways?

i set the front and side fans to blow in ...and since the back one is just aside the processor fan..they both blow out ...guess what the case temp has dropped by 3 - 4 deg c


thanks all
