How many case fans are too many?

depends on the fans, and the speed that they're running at

....it's called a 'snuke'.

You can never have too many fans........

I have 13 fans in my system - and will have more in it on monday when my CM690 comes - has mounts for more fans :)

Or try adding a 12 inch ceiling exhaust fan to the side of your case, if it doesn't suck the CPU off your mobo your laughing!

There's really no such thing as too many fans, lots of slow moving fans can provide as much air flow as a few high speed fans at much, much lower noise levels.

Doesn't too many fans cause negative pressure thus reducing the air flow??

You are better of having 140 mm fans 4-6 max..

How many are too many?


Once you can't fit them in, or make it so that air can't actually flow through the case, you have too many.
