Would this be a good airflow setup? (Raven RV03)

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey, guys and girls!


I'm on the verge of buying this awesome case, and I wanted to know if my planned airflow setup would be good - or if I should/could change something.

Here is the setup, that I thought of doing:

I reckon you're spot on; good direction and you'll definitely have a positive pressure in that case.

...and I'm jealous of the cooling your graphics card will be scoring from that vertical mobo arrangement. cheers.gif

Thanks biggrin.gif Yeah, I'm so stoked about this case biggrin.gif Really gonna be great!

Also bying a Noctua NH-D14, so CPU temps gonna drop too biggrin.gif


I was wondering if it would be better for the 120mm side fan to exhaust the air... Would it? tongue.gif

If you mean the one under the CPU, I would leave that as an inlet fan - you'll have a nice cool breeze blowing over the mounting bracket and cooling the whole underside of your board.

If I had to change anything, I would make the rear fan an exhaust simply because warm air can accumulate between the case and the wall. Also, if you're at a LAN, you might end up drawing warm air into your case from whoever's sitting opposite you.

Minor foibles though. Like I say; I reckon you got it right first time thumb.gif

The fan under the CPU stays as an intake smile.gif Then I can always experiment with the rear fan biggrin.gif

Thanks for the feedback, mate - will rep you for this smile.gif
