Advice with upgrading my Corsair 800d case...

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey so far I'm really digging my Sandy bridge rig...very awesome. I am looking to maybe install some more fans because I plan on keeping it air cooled for the time being...now what I did was I put back in the stock 140mm exhaust fan in the rear and put the H60 rad and 120fan in the rear top mount thinking this may be a good idea because it's a little different than what you normally see but is it effective?? Speed fan seems to be okay reading...but I'm looking to make this case the best air cooled it can so my questions are...what 120 and 140 fans should I buy and how should I mount them to get the best airflow for each...zone in the case ...also are fan controllers I see at Frozen CPU worth it to have because they sure look purty ha...

For a start a Corsair H60 isnt an air cooler, its a sealed loop water cooler. To get the best result from it you should have it mounted on the back or top of the case with air flowing from outside in through the radiator. With fans you want to have about one exaust fan for every intake fan so that air is constantly being shifted through the case

I read for the 800D to put 3 120mm intake fans on the top with the back 140mm as exhaust. If you're air cooling, that is. I don't know if that will work with an H60.
