Anyone know the best airflow path for Tesseract SW?

Recommended Posts

2-4 fans are enough IMO, make sure intake fans more than exhaust fans

Thanks for the fast response! I am just quite confused as there are side fans, and I am not sure whether they are better suited for intake or exhaust.

i would generally recommend 1 exhaust at the very back, the rest as intakes, the more airflow over the mother board the better. The side fans have the potential of just pulling air straight back out without it passing over anything, therefore wasted potential

That depends purely on what GPU and CPU cooler you are using.
