fans window mount
I just got 2 thermaltake smartfan II's and will replace my 80mm antec fans (one intake front, one exhaust rear) with them. I want to cut my acrylic side window and mount the antec fans across from the heatsink. Is exhaust the best way to run them? I will use a dremel tool to make the cuts. any tips on how to make the cuts will be appreciated.

Intake is the best to run the window fan...directly across from the CPU...and the best way to cut the window is...tape it up with masking tape...mark your hole...take a hole saw and a drill...set the drill to about 25% of the power...slowly, without putting a lot of pressure on the drill, drill the hole...then take a massonary drill bit to drill out the screw holes...make sure it is a massonary drill bit...this is the best way I have found to make side blow holes in windows without cracking them...make sure you do not screw the fan in too tight or you will crack the window...doing it this way also leaves a perfect hole that looks professinally installed...

Intake for sure.
