There's a wrong way to do this, which is to have too much negative pressure in the case. (more blowing out than in). this causes air and dust to be sucked in through the front bay drives and loads them up with dust. you need to balance it with just a little bit of negative pressure. So I use a combination of Panaflo low medium and high fans to get the right balance and flow.
Depends on the case too, some are designed for airflow, others are not. [/B]
no fair , if i add the psu fans , it's 7 for me (still no ten , but closer ). There's also a fan in the plastic sidepanel.
concerning that balance; That's why i put a picture of my pc case with the first post. As you can see both sides are perforated at the top. The little dust that pulls in , i take for granted.
