How many case fans should one have?

Recommended Posts

My case is a View 27 and I'm planning on putting a 1600 + 470 inside.

My motherboard will haveĀ https://mobdro.bio/ Lucky Patcher Kodi three 4-pin fan headers. I was thinking of putting in two (one intake, one exhaust) but the fan that came in my case isn't LED and I want two LEDs (one on either side) for symmetry. Is three overkill?

Also, I'm thinking of getting two red LED JetFlo 120s or two red LED Riing 120mms. Is there a good reason not to get those?

One intake and one exhaust is probably the bare minimum you would want in a standard desktop PC build. Ideally, to maximize airflow/cooling, you would put a fan in every open spot. One thing to to do is make sure you have either balanced pressure or slightly positive pressure. Balanced pressure means your air intake matches your exhaust; the best way to ensure this is to have all the same model of fans. Positive pressure would be having more intake than exhaust. Having more exhaust than intake can cause higher temperatures and dust buildup.
