A05NB vs A05FNB - Page 3

post #21 of 22
I can see the A05FNB having an edge for better temps if you are willing to add a fan hole right below the card. The CPU will have fresh air from the rear already so A05FNB gets my vote for better temps.

But I do not like the front of the case. Doesn't look as clean as the N version.

EDIT: The other thing I forgot to add is the fact that in the FN version, the rear fan is on top of the card so if you use a reference air cooler, the hot air exhausting will come back into the case if the rear fan is set as intake. So, now I am wondering if the temps will actually be worse than the N version. Also, if you use a gpu cooler that exhausts inside the case, your cpu temps will suffer (in the FN version, not the N).

The N version may actually have the better temps. This should be interesting if someone is willing to buy both and compare/contrast.

simple fluid and thermal dynamics agreed with me too, but you how everyone on this site thinks they know absolutely everything
