    I've read the previous threads, but haven't seen one just like mine.

    My case is a modded Antec full tower SOHO file server with a 120mm intake on the side, 2 80mm exhausts in the back, 2 80mm exhausts in the front and an 80mm blowhole exhaust as well. PSU (Antec SP 2.0 500w) has dual 80mm fans (intake and thermal sens. exhaust).

    :respect: Please share your ideas of how I can configure this case for maximum cooling!:respect:
    Perhaps the 2 front fans intaking as well??

    yes change the front fans and the top one should be exhaust same with the rear fans and leave the one on the side as intake

    thnx for the quick reply: ok so change it to INTAKE= side & front, while EXHAUST=rear & blow-hole? Sorry, I didn't understand your phrasing before :eek:

    yeah...that's right. The front and side fans should always be intake, and the rear and blowhole (top) fans should always be exhaust, since heat rises.
