    I just bought a full system (seperate components) and forgot about cooling fans, It's a P4 3.06Ghz prescott Skt 478 (fan inc)and a coolermaster centurion case with a winpower 550w psu. Any recommendations on how many, size of fans etc I will need :rolleyes: ?

    well i have 5 fans (3 outtake and 2 intake) include the fans for the mobo and the CPU plus the two fans on the PSU altogether 9 fans. I just recently gave my PC a good clean out so she's breathing air properly now...so really all depends on the type of case you have and how many fan holes you have, normal size of fans is about 80mm. what case is it exactly?

    I have a chieftec dragon
    2 80mm intake attached to hard drive cages
    2 80mm outtake attached to rear
    stock CPU fan
    PSU fan (although it has two this really only serves to suck air into the PSU then out, so we count it as one extraction fan

    on my file server i have lik 8 120mm fans, a 350mm cross blow fan, and numerous other cooling additiosn

    id say get 1 intake and 1 outtake, monitor temperature, buy more if required
