Technibble reveals the theory behind airflow in cases and how to best utilize it. Without getting incredibly technical, they show why a sealed negative case is the worst possible situation and why unsealed positive is the best way to go ... plus explaining what those terms mean.
"Keeping a computer running coolly isn't just about placing a giant heatsink on the hotspot - although it undoubtedly helps. Just shifting
the same stale air around isn't going to help keep the components cool, in fact, it'll only heat them up. So, aside from on-site planning,
you need a bit of global planning as well to insure you have a cool computer case. After all, you have a CPU, a GPU and a power supply to
cool in there."
