How much difference do case fans make?

Will Case Fans make a difference?

They can make a big difference depending on your build and components. If you have a graphics card installed or are going to do any OCing, I'd recommend putting two 120mm or 140mm fans in the front, or one in the front and one in the side, both as intake.

How big of a difference do case fans make?

But what about adding more? Adding an additional pair of intake and exhaust (for a total of four fans) will likely lower your temperatures anywhere from two to five degrees. That can be significant but anything beyond that and you are likely to see a diminished return in the range of one to two degrees, if that much.

Do Case Fans improve performance?

Having case fans will help with CPU temperature. For every fan, though, there is diminishing returns. Two fans is good enough in most cases (literally and figuratively).

Do Case fans actually help?

Upgrading your CPU fan is a start, but adding case fans can also be a big help. Since performance-enhancing memory and graphic cards generate a lot of heat, case fans can help increase airflow to your components by attaching to the front and back of your system.

Should top case fans be intake or exhaust?

Generally, you want the case fans in front of the case drawing in air while the fans at the rear blow air out. If your case has vents at the top, they should be placed as exhaust fans because hot air will rise. Side-mounted fans should be used for intake, though they often don't have air filters.

What rpm do you run case fans?

Usually around about 900ish rpm, fans will create enough noise to be somewhat audible, and the higher the rpm, the louder that gets. If you've ever heard an 8000rpm Delta server fan, you'd understand.

Does cooling increase FPS?

No, the cooler will not help fps and is not a particularly good buy.

How many fans should a case have?

It is always our recommendation that you buy cases with a minimum of 3 fans (or at least slots for adding them yourself) for gaming systems, not counting the power supply, CPU, and GPU fans.

Is it bad to have all exhaust fans?

If you have all exhaust it will simply draw air in through any holes in the case. All intake will push air out of the holes in the case. It won't have too much of an effect really as air will still end up going in to and out of the case, but it will be less efficient and you will see overall temps increase.

Is going over 4000 rpm bad?

There's no harm running your engine at 4000 rpm for five minutes as long as the engine or cvt don't overheat. Vehicle manufacturers regularly test engines on dynamometers at wide open throttle for hours at a time.

Is 1000rpm enough?

A 1000 RPM fan is a bit low, as most standard case fans are anywhere from 1400-1600RPM, and you'd use a 1000RPM fan really for a non-intensive work or leisure computer. While it's more quiet, it's not as viable or powerful as the 2000RPM fan.
