    I just bought a 1200rpm (64 CFM) I tried putting it on intake and outtake - no difference in temps, so im keeping it on intake.

    What else should I do to my Antec? :)

    Sell it and buy a Silverstone or Lian-Li :p

    You wont see a signifigant change in temps just by changing the case fans.
    If you really want to see a difference in cpu/gpu temps either get a better heatsink or better fan that is on the heatsink.

    but really you should sell it.
    (I really really dont like that case :p)

    >.< I couldn't agree more ONLY because that thing has lots of plastic and... GRRR cable management must be modded/they give it to you pretty pre-assembled and I hate that.

    Theres a whole lot of air moving in and out of that case so its pretty much an airflow monster that cant be improved on by much. I'd look at other stuff in your case such as the cabling, the cooling, etc.

    Higher CFM fans will help, 63cfm isn't a lot (its around the same as the stock 120mm fans if I remember right)

    I have 110cfm fans and it makes some difference, especially with two of them strapped to my Xiggy HDT1283. :)

    Spend the money on new hardware :p, or spraypaint it into different colours, thats what I'm going to do with my 1200.

    I don't know why everyone is having problems with cable management, It took me only two hours, and my case is amazingly cabled, I can post pics if needed.

    I am going to cold cathode the shi* out of it, its going to be all blue and LED, and sick
