    Fans how many are safe

    If i'm using an peltier and the alpha 3125 how many case fans is it safe to have running.

    I also have a three fan drive bay cooler

    I want to add four case fans two pushing
    at the base and two sucking on the opposite-
    side at the top... is this safe or might i
    have a flash fire on my hands

    PS i think i have a 230W power supply

    What CPU is this going on to and what is the peltier wattage? 230 Watts is woefully underpowered for a pelt of 72 Watts or more.

    I suggest you get a 2nd power supply from an old tower or something. Use the main one for your computer and drives and the second one only for the fans and the peltier.

    I think I'm going to ditch
    my case and get a new one something
    with the previously mention fans already
    built in

    I've seen a nice one at

    For some reason the under-scores did not come
    out any way this should hopefully work this
    time. I was thinking of getting the Coolercase "Tornado" (300W PSU)what do you
    think guys..

    Those who have bought a Tornado case have generally been pleased with it, my only suggestion is if you are handy with basic tools that you try case modding yourself. It won't end up much cheaper but it's gives you a sense of personal acomplishment you can't get from a store bought case and you can customize it to your liking.
