My stats arent important. I just want to pose a question about case cooling. My case has two mounts for 8cm cooling fans. One is located in the bottom of the front of the case and the other is located at the top of the rear of the case. It would make sense to me that you would want the bottom front fan drawing IN cool air and the upper rear fan venting OUT the heated air.
Agree or disagree....that is my question.

Air can always find a way out of an area.  Heres a situation I ran into and i did a little thinking.  One of my computers is a slot 1 processor with those big Fins on it.  I also have a voodoo 3d fx sound card and it has those little fins on it as well.  I had a video card go out on me.  It just got too hot.  Well these fins direct air as long as its present.  If you have a fan closenough to the components that need it you should only need one heatseak and fan on the CPU and one on the back of the case pushing are into the isa and pci slots.  I have had no problems with overheats since I done this.  Hope this helps

Glad  I could help. There are a great variety of cooling options, but you end up trading between noise and temperature drop. Check into the drive and slot options at the link I provided for options besides the one in-one out basic setup, as towercrasher suggests.
