This made temps 57C at full load. I then tried installing as an exhaust and it immediately dropped temps to 46C.
From our conversations before, you never recommended setting the bottom fan as exhaust. Why is that? I have it setup as an exhaust now due to the reason above and what do you think I'm losing? Will it interfere with the wind tunnel positive pressure effect we did with our case?
Excellent wok! I never mentioned the possibility because I was concerned about reingestion of the warmed air, and because most AIO coolers cannot reach far enough to have a bottom mount Congratulations on your discovery.
As for will they work against each other, the answer is no, or at least negligibly so. Again, congrats on finding a new cooling method.
