Just trying my luck to see if someday, someone will respond to a question that literally has my build at a stand stil!

I cannot continue my build unless i know which way to point my fans in order to make most efficient use of air flow.

Please visit this link:

I'd say have the rad fans point in. That way you have fresh air cooling the rads, and positive pressure on the inside... Will your fans be filtered?

yes my fans will be filtered now after reading your posts

will this be a problem?

Should i point all my fans inward inside the case? I have 2 radiators on top of my TH10 Case pointing up away from the case in push pull config.

I thought the idea was to keep hot air away from the components

This is now thread number 3 that you've made.

You could have all the rads set up as intake and all the non-rad fans at exhaust. Or do the opposite.
You could also have one rad as intake and the other as exhaust. This would be my preference. That way the air flows in one direction straight through.

Honestly, with that much rad I don't think it's going to make a ton of difference. It's also dependent on the fans you're using and the outside environment (if it's in a corner, cabinet, etc.)

If you need an answer and no one has the info you're looking for, why don't you try out different scenarios and see what works best? Figure it out for yourself and that way you can give back to the community with your own knowledge.

You could try rephrasing the question and explaining yourself a little better if you aren't getting answers. People need to understand the question to answer it. You could also try posting in the case labs forum: http://www.overclock.net/f/380/case-labs. There is a post-sales section, that's probably best.

Questions are great, but having to click through 3 threads just to figure out what your question is is freaking annoying. Next time please just bump the first thread?

When it comes to fan direction, just try to approximately balance the airflow out with the airflow in, with a little more coming in than out. That way your case won't suck air in through corners/holes, and all the air in your case will go through the filters on your fans. Heat rising and all that isn't a major concern-- your fans will easily overcome that tendency.

As far as loop order, it doesn't matter. Set it up whichever way gives you the cleanest tubing.

LOOP ORDER DOESN'T MATTER.
