Please forgive if I'm breaking any ettiquette rules, new to everything (forum, oc'ing, modding, etc..)
I just got the 830 and am new to building computers from scratch. Worked on computers though for several years (putting in cards, memory, etc.. since the 286 days - yes I'm that old!) but never cared a darn about overclocking or gaming. For some reason HL2 woke me up again and made me want to set my HP763n on fire and get a real computer after finding out it had a 200w power supply and various other lame issues I won't go into.
So after several months of research and educating myself, I now have the 830 and some real equipment.
I just bought 2 more 120 fans over the stock setup since I got them free w/rebate. Ironic isn't it that I get a free rebate on a fan yet break the bank on the 830. Luckily my wife hasn't got the bill yet!
So, where should I put these things and what direction should they go? One fan is lower speed and one is normal. I'm figuring definitely one on top but the other not sure if I should use fan bracket and push air out or mount in drive area and push air in?
Should I use the motherboard fan jumpers for all of the fans? I've heard about fanbus, etc.. is there a good cheap one available - I don't need the fancy temp sensor drive bay stuff, just the base bus inside. Or maybe mobo is acceptable?
Major TIA for any help or suggestions. Here's my setup, much of which is still in boxes or on it's way...
a8n32sli deluxe, liberty 620w, corsair twinx2048, evga 7800 gt (no sli yet), Zalman CU cooler, AMD 4200+ DualC.
