I'm using an old case from a 2007-2008 pre-built system. It's mATX and the layout is reversed. The cooling system is kinda sucks, there are 2 exhausts (back panel fan and PSU fan) but the only way for the air to get in is the side panel vents as it doesn't have any intake fan. Well, I can put a 120 mm fan for the intake but I can't mount it properly because only 1 screw will able to hold it, from what I can see.
I'm not having any problem with temps right now, but whenever I want to throw a GPU in it, I will always think more than twice because the lack of air to keep it away from overheating.
What to do? Should I put an intake fan but letting it 'hanging' in there?
Or flip the exhaust fan for fresh air from the back instead? (Edit: I did this not long ago, it gives slightly lower temps on the CPU but the the fan gets even more noisy as a side effect.. it annoys me at the most, so yeah, nevermind about this)
