How to decide on a case for air cooling (warning - pics) - Page 144

post #1431 of 2110
Good luck with your build! biggrin.gif

Keep us posted with some pics when you finish it. thumb.gif

On a sidenote, I'm still confused about "creation and the universe" I mean airflow and my top down cooler... (let's see who catches the Devin Townsend reference xD)
Modular forms and elliptic curves! Infinite fire revolving around infinite parallels, fractals of infinite reality, each cascading, gliding in an infinite wheel. Tell me...
Should I have a rear exhaust? Top intakes? or what? rolleyes.gif

I use 2 Silverstone 140mm magnetic filters on my top. Work great.

Paid $5 each for them.. don't remember where.

I've looked into filters like that and would rather have the look and function of the Demciflex filter. Thanks for the suggestion! thumb.gif

because the top was meant to be an exhaust port biggrin.gif putting filter on an exhaust port is counterproductive. if you are going to use that as an intake port, then that's your choice and you have to provide the filter for it biggrin.gif

as for your choice in filter, demciflex is decent, especially if you like the looks. but the wave mesh / accordion style works best for airflow.

Any suggestions for this set-up?

470

Currently it has that configuration with the stock 200mm fans, a yate loon medium speed on the bottom and the blademaster that came with 212+ rigged in the 5.25" bays.

Do you notice any appreciable dust buildup with leaving the covers off?
post #1438 of 2110
You shouldn't if you push air outwards thru them.
The fan setup should front intakes, top intakes, side intake, rear passive exhaust...
That way sounds better for me. I have them off, and haven't got dust buildup down there since my rig has been running. (almost 2 months now)

So would you recommend just flipping over the top 200mm fan or making some kind other configuration up there?
