    which setup is better?

    one fan blowing air IN and another OUT
    or
    both fans blowing IN
    or
    both fans blowing OUT?

    On my setup i use both of them blowing out, because my case has air holes in the front so fresh air can come in.

      I don't think 2 blowing out, and none in, is recommended. Some guy told me the components could become dust magnets due to low pressure inside.
      I bet that's probably why I have to clean my laptop(1 fan blowing out) more often than my desktop(2 fans: 1 in, 1 out).

      Anyways, don't do the two blowing in, either do the two blowing out, or one in, one out.

        I try to maximise air flow through the pc usually, so I'd have two 80mm fans at the front (if I can fit them in) and then would have two 80mms or a 120 or something at the back sucking out. This would ensure that there is a constant airflow throughout the computer.

          It can also depend where on the case they are and thus what components the air is going over. I'd probably say go with a 1 in and 1 out though.

            My current setup is like this: 1 IN at the back, 1 OUT at the side...my computer's back is the wall....

            Are there alternatives for cooling other than using fans?
