    if i have 2 fans (MASSCOOL FD08025S1M4 80mm Case Fan) on the back of the case with one right on top of the other, should one blow in or should they both blow out? i also have a arctic cooling freezer 7 on the cpu (or i will when i build this weekend).

    thanks.

    It really depends on a lot of things. Generally speaking, if 2 fans are close to one another, you don't want one "in" and the other "out" because the air-flow will then be in a small loop and cooling for the interior will not be optimal. If there are plenty of intake ports for air, you may want both blowing out, especially if the power supply blows in.

    Think about how air will flow with the case closed. Imagine some smoke flowing through the system.
