I think it might replace the 4 x 120mm fans on the side panel...

Newegg has it for $25.00 not a bad deal really, seems like a good idea. Would be nice if they had something like that in a HTPC case, one intake across the front top and a output across the back bottom.

edit: reverse that

I would think that depends on the layout of your board and cables. The air blowing over it like that should in most cases cool your chipsets/ram better and my direct some air under the mobo to cool the backside.

With the sdie panel fans on a Stacker, trust me when I say, you want a slightly more silent fan than the ones you have chosen. With the mesh on the side, all the noise easily escapes.

I have 4 Scythe S-Flex 33.5cfm 8.7dBA fans in my Stacker side panel, and the airflow is more than enough, when used with higher flowing fans in the rest of the case. They made a huge difference in overall noise output, compared to the 22dBA(ish) fans I had in there previously, but very little reduction in cooling performance.

I have no experience with the crossflow fan, but if you set up your 120mm fans properly, I see little benefit to having one.

hmm, yeah didn't think about that. 12 120mm @ fans 21db each. it would sound like a train! :laugh:

you can use them as well as the cross flow fan.
that is in correct you can either use all 4 120s or 2 120s and the crossflow fan basically

120|120
120|120 or

120|crossflow
120|crossflow
