I know that for maximum performance, a CPU Case needs good airflow and cooling. Now i want to know how you have managed a good airflow in your case. Do you keep one of your side panel open (like me) all the time? Or do you have fans for airflow? I need some tips. I'm not facing heat issue atm, but i had thought about it for a while and want to know what it takes for good airflow. Actually, the insides of my case gets dusty as i leave one side panel open. The reason i keep one side open is tht my casing is 11 years old and i cant buy a new case. I dont have any intake fans on front/side (my front side has a 80mm fan vent but the plastic front panel is blocking airflow). Dont have rear exhaust case fans either. I have a 120mm exhaust in my TR2-420W. i keep my passive 8500GT cooled with a P4 Intel Stock cooler. And now i want to know what i need to do so tht i can keep my case enclosed with the side panel. I havent tried re-attaching the side panel tho atm, im afraid tht i dont get enough cool air coming with the side panel attached... :/
Thanks gladly for advice.
P.S. i will try reattaching tonight tho, and if i face temp issues i will inform.
