So I have the H100i in my computer. The fans are currently in a push configuration as exhaust taking air out of the case. I installed them like this at the time I built my machine because heat rises. They have seemed to work reasonably well (about 38C or 39C idle) like this considering I have the i7-3930K.
My question is, is there any rule of thumb as to if the fans should be installed as intake(taking cooler air from outside the case) or exhaust(using the warmer air inside the case)? If I were to flip them around to intakes, is it okay to only have the 1 exhaust fan on the back of the case? Thanks everyone!
