    i'm going to replace the fans in my case (4 80mm fans) with 2 120mm papst fans... I'm a little unsure of the placement though...

    one of them will go in front of the harddrives (front-bottom), but i'm wondering if i should put the exhaust fan on the top (blowhole) of the case or in the rear...

    Any idea what will be most effective?

    (btw: i have a PSU wich have a 120mm fan in the bottom (right above the CPU)

    i have found that my blowhole removes a great deal more amount of hot air than my 2 exhaust fans in the rear do, but the 120mm in your psu should keep that area near your cpu and graphics card cool enough
