Cooler Master Case Fans

Cooler Master case fans come in 3 models:
-Balance: half and half.
-Air Flow: less pressure, more volume.
-Air Pressure: more pressure, less volume.

While I understand what each model actually does, I don't know what scenario is best for each.

    I myself use a Cooler Master full tower with Air Flow, because this way it allows me to create a positive air flow that will keep the most important parts of the computer cool and almost free of dust. Only downside of this is that i cannot have it facing a wall, cause then the hot air wont have nowhere where to escape and will only create a very hot area at the back of the Tower.
  • Why would anyone use air pressure?

    Because is cheaper than Liquid Cooling, and it works.
  • Ok...

    I guess I want to know why there are 3 different models if it doesn't matter what you use.
  • You need to keep in mind that you can silence normal fans with 7 volt cable adapters. My 200mm megaflows are actualy quiet with them spinning at 500rpm providing decent airflow (and led light) in case.
