[Officia]l ASUS ROG Maximus IV GENE-Z68 & Z68(Gen3) Owners Club - Page 532

post #5311 of 7108
Hmmm...do I really want to step into the middle of this? Oh well, what the heck, I have been married more than once, so how much worse can this be? wink.gif


Okay, this is just my opinion (Engineer and Firefighter for a dozen years):

Heat rises through convection in normal circumstances. A case isn't exactly normal. There are numerous heat sources, numerous fans, and turbulence. Can you fight convection? Sure...and a powerful fan directed into such a small space can be so much more powerful than convection that you might not see a significant difference by using a top fan as an intake, taking measurements, flipping the case 180 degrees, placing it on blocks, and then taking more measurements.

Would it be better to use convection to your advantage? Sure, if that's your only independent variable, but specific case configuration and the components in it also come into play. I think that each person needs to look at their case, the components in it, and their fans and decide what seems best. Even better, take some measurements and then reverse the direction of the fan...and take more measurements...and then you will know what works best for your case.

BTW, heat also conveys through conduction, radiation, and direct impingement. smile.gif



I think that there is one cooling issue on which we can all agree...and that is that Divey should remove his wireless router from the top of his case. wink.gif



One other practical point - while heat rises, dust falls...and more dust also affects cooling performance. An intake fan on the top may mean more dust in the case/filters...but again, powerful fans are going to move a lot of air, air currents contain dust, and so dust is coming in anyway. An exhaust fan on top also stops my family members from placing papers on top. wink.gif

Wow, sorry to have brought this up. Anyways I did run it with the air pulling from bottom to top and my cpu runs cooler than when I had it side to side. It may be the extra fans I put in but either way it works for me.

That's the ticket! Try it out and take some measurements. thumb.gif

You should bust open the router case and drop a D14 on that bad boy. wink.gif

I got you added to the Google Owners List thumb.gif #189, and as for the Club Sig ... copy & paste this into your Sig -  devil-smiley-019.gif ASUS Maximus IV GENE-Z68 Owners Club Devil Icon Optional ... welcome aboard drunken.gif

Thanks

 


Also ... on the venting issue, I will make one final post about it ... and then I think we should drop it ... OK ? cheers.gif

 

efficiency - (noun) effective operation as measured by a comparison of production with cost (as in energy, time, and money) : the ratio of the useful energy delivered by a dynamic system to the energy supplied to it.

 

vs.

 

effectiveness - (noun) the capability of producing a desired result. When something is deemed effective, it means it has an intended or expected outcome, or produces a deep, vivid impression : The degree to which a purpose is achieved. In biomechanics effectiveness refers, for example, to how well a particular running technique helps a sprinter complete the 100 m as quickly as possible. A technique may be effective in enabling the sprinter to run fast, but inefficient in terms of energy expenditure.

 

OK ... and with that said ... that's THAT ! time to move on folks thumb.gif as it's neither efficient nor effective to keep arguing / debating about this here biggrin.gif

Touche, I thought the terms were interchangeable, but the semantics say otherwise. I love intelligent conversation, thank you very much smile.gif.

OT,
I have to go with a much cheaper MB, so I'll just stalk this club like I have been from now on. It makes me sad frown.gif.

Such a sexy beast of a mobo and I'll just have to keep droolling at it.
