    Fans on top Mike pushing air through, by necessity. I like to put them on the bottom and pull air through the radiator.

    Ahhhh ....ok but you just told me both ways ....so I'm confused now. One I'll be getting will be the Corsair Hydro Series H115i, for the new case. Little bit bigger radiator.

    When the fans on the bottom are intakes and the fans on the top are exhaust it improves air circulation around the video card also.

    I have them on top of the radiator pushing air through the radiator, because off space issues. I prefer them on the bottom of the radiator pulling air through but It would have been a little tight that way. I have done it both ways in the past but can't say it really makes a difference. I just prefer them on the bottom out of laziness. When I need to clean the radiator out, everything is on top with no fans in the way. Just run a vacuum there and it's clean in 2 minutes. If it's easier to clean, you will keep it cleaner, and it will be cooler.

    I took my drive cages out of the case and have 2 140mm fans blowing straight through the case with no obstructions. I haven't had any temp problems.

    I hope I made it clearer that time.

    Yup, and thank you Steve, I can do it either way with the new case, but you already know that. When I need to clean out the dust, I use my air compressor .... heck with vacuuming Thinking about putting the fans on top, that's why I asked.

    In your new case you can have them both ways if you wanted to.

    Yup, just like Jack mentioned ....don't know if it would be necessary thou.....maybe. Thinking 2 140's would be enough.

    For you hardcore Corsair fans(pun intended): Corsair To Release H115i Pro and H150i Pro AIO liquid coolers

    Corsair is preparing to release two new AIO Liquid coolers, the H115i Pro and H150i Pro. The first being a 280mm version, the second a 360mm version. The new coolers are quite an upgrade, with a new design cooling block, ML series fans and some RGB loving as well.

    The models are tagged in their new "PRO" line-up and appear to be different from the regular Hydro series lineup. An interesting fact is that the product will use the new ML fan, these would be the magnetic levitation ones. We tested these in the past already they offer really good airflow at low RPM, whilst remaining very silent.

    How on earth did they manage to get that unit so loud? Our Freezer at home is dead silent, but it does not have any fans. I am certain that with a big enough fan with proper wings, they could get the noise level down below 30dB easily. ;-)

    Update: Here's a review of an old product, I almost bought: Asetek Vapochill Review

    That unit is not for sale anymore and all information is taken down from Asetek site.
