So i plan to get a new case which will be the Antech 1200, There will be 3 120mm fans on the front of the case for intake, 2 120mm Fans on the back for exhaust, and a 200mm fan on top for exhaust, but what i really want to know is which direction should the air flow go for the CPU fan and Side fan

 

Thanks, Mizar

The fan on the side panel is intaking cool air while the fan on the CPU cooler is exhausting warm air.

if its stock cooler it should already facing the right direction which has the fan blowing cool air into the heatsink. bloing air across anything is better than using suction

coming from someone who owns and uses 1 of these i can say these guys are on the right track, just have the side fan intaking and leave the cpu cooler as it is. you can also install another 120mm fan on the back of an emtpy hdd cage to provide more cpu/vga/psu cooling if you prefer, however this means you cannot have hdd's in this cage
