Airflow for antec h20 620

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I just recently installed an antec h20 620. I was told by several people I should do push/pull and have the air intake in the case rather than exhaust. So I was thinking about trying this and I was wondering which way I should position my case fans. I can use 4 fans total on my case top and rear are exhaust. The other are intake which are the side panel fan and the front fan. All my fans are 120mm expect the top fan its 200mm.

I also read blog about his here is the link:

As that article says the only way to tell for sure with your set up is to test both ways. It only takes a couple seconds to switch the fans back around. If I was to come on here and say do it one way or another i would be lying.

One thing i noticed with the radiator on these is High CFM fans do not help much. I had 2 3400rpm Deltas in P/P and get the same temps as 1 Ultra Kaze set up as pull and exhaust.

To answer this question. Leave your case fans as they are. front and side intake top exhaust. Since you will be intaking from the rear, no pun intended, that air will heat as it crosses the rad so your top exhaust fans can quickly expel that heat.

I was gonna try it with fans the way they are. Just always like a 2nd opinion. And thanks for the advice. I was also thinking about getting 2 gentle typhoons for my rad. Everybody seems to be saying good things about using them with these types of liquid coolers.
