Server Airflow Help? Answered
As you can see here, I just got 3 new blow fans for my server I'm making. But I'm not making it in a server box/case, or even in a computer case, I'm making it in a plastic shelving unit. I have 5 fans in total; the three blow fans, and a medium and a small computer fan. I'm completely new to the airflow concept, so I will need some guidance.
ideasBelow are some things that I think will improve airflow, but you tell me if it's good or not.
1. leaning motherboard
-Is making the motherboard "lean" so the bottom is semi exposed a good idea for airflow? Or would the air not circulate as well?
2. "chaining" blow fans
-Would "chaining" the blow fans together (putting them in sequence) make a twice as powerful stream of air?
1. Should air be sucked out of the box, or blown in?
2. What would the ideal airflow solution be?
