    Sup, TPU.

    I have the NZXT Apollo case and it has 1 side fan, but I attached another fan to that fan. Does it make a difference? Plus, I have removed the screen (protector or something) from the side of the case from which the fans are placed. Does it make a difference? Because when I put the screen, I can't feel any exhaust / heat / air coming from the fans. But when I remove it, I feel like all the heat inside is going outside through the 2 fans and the fan at the rear.

    Main question is, Does it make any difference?

    Check your temps before and after?

    Same temps, actually. But I want to know if it is safe. And does putting 2 fans together put more exhaust/ blow power?

    Apparently not. They interfere with eachother

    As long as they are the same fans you should be safe. Otherwise the fan with the higher CFM rate will suck (or blow) the other fan into faster RPM than it's meant to go at, wearing it out quicker.

    I don't think you will move more air, you might get steadier air pressure though.

    Another question. I know this is crazy, but if I were to put the aircon beside my pc so it could blow cold wind, will my temps drop, or will it break my parts? lol. jus askin, never gonna try. :D

    Airco usually dehumidifies as well, so you should be OK moisture wise. Dunno how else it could break anything, so my guess is safe.
