Twin Frozr III Airflow - Page 4

post #31 of 35
Not trying to hijack this thread just wanted to ask a question about my 6950 TF3 in my haf 922. I ran furmark for about 5 mins and the temp seem to max at 63C. Do you think it would be worth it to install another 200mm fan on the side of my case? How big of a difference would it make?

Again, sorry for hijack.

I think you are right though
Look at the picture I attached a few posts back, that should answer the question. However, I really advise you to just test all fan configs at stock speeds to see what works best.

Just my 2 cents, I've been overclocking for about 10 years, and have done many experiments with air flow and the like. I have found the negative pressure cooling is more efficient from a purely air flow standpoint. (Tends to suck in the dust tho hehe.) In my antec 902 case, I took out the side intake fan (on the clear side), and installed an 80 cfm slot fan under my gpu, over the psu in the back. The net effect of this is now I have a jet stream of cool air running through the bottom half of my case, while the top 200 mm, and rear 120 mm actually tap that stream to cool my cpu and help the push-pull cooler exhaust straight out of the case. My case temps are cooler, cpu temps are cooler, and It takes far less time now to cool my entire machine down after a hard run of folding (less than 5 minutes), and I got higher overclocks out of the deal too.

So you think

Rear 1x140mm exhaust + 4x120 top exhaust + 1x140mm front intake would be better in my case considering the TWFIII than top half exhaust and half intake + rear exhaust and front intake?
