    I have a NZXT H700 and when I built the system I added 2 more fans (NF-A14 PWM chromax. black) one back and one top and moved the 140mm NZXT fan to the second slot on top. After some reading I suspect I made a negative airflow. So my question is this airflow is negative/positive/neutral? and...

    Question Would This Fan Configuration Work?

    I am wanting to get a 240mm AIO to mount on the top of my Fractal Meshify C. If I mounted 2 or maybe 3 120mm fans on the front of the case as intakes, could the AIO on the top serve as enough output with no fans on the back side of the case? I am brand new to water-cooling so correct me if this...

    Question PC case airflow question

    My question is, will a 40mm fan above my CPU cooler make the airflow of the cooler worse ?
