post #2721 of 7158
Hey guys, need help setting up my case...if someone could help, would really appreciate it.

I'm confused on which way the H80 cooler fans should be blowing along with the front fan.

Facing the case so the front of the case is on the left and the back of the case on the right...should it be....(arrows indicate fan air flow)


Front Fan --> MB/CPU --> Fan | Radiator | Fan --> (back of case)


or should it be


Front Fan --> MB/CPU <-- Fan | Radiator | Fan <--- (back of case)


or should it be


<-- Front Fan MB/CPU <-- Fan | Radiator | Fan <--- (back of case)

Confused on how this should be set up.

Also I read that the PSU fan should be facing down into the case instead of facing out and using the top vent??? (using a OCZ 700w)

Any help is appreciated. thumb.gif

hello and you will love the case.

PSU fan faces up so that it gets cool air from the outside. There was a typo in some manuals that they corrected. I think a Silverstone rep chimmed in on it as well.

Basically the first setup you listed was correct. The front fan is an intake getting cool air into the case. Then you want the corsair fans both as exhaust to get air out.

I have played with different arrangements like the bottom one you had listed, in a case with a video card adding hot air into the case option 3 you listed might give you 2c cooler cpu temps but honestly not worth the hastle of moving things around.

Thank you so much 66racer...I appreciate it. Yah I was just confused because the h80 manual has it showing you should have air coming in from the back...but that makes sense...cool air in front, then those cool the inside while exhaust out.

I do plan on having a GTX680 in the case also...does that affect your response at all (I should have listed that the first time)

My friend thought thought the opposite that the Corsair fans should be cooling the rad for lower CPU temps and then the front blows the hot air out. But I mean if you are getting that much cool air in the front, then I guess it's really half a dozen of one, etc..

Has anyone ever done the middle one where you have cool air coming in the front, cool air coming in the back and you create a new opening on the say the side or top and venting out that way with another fan?

No problem. The middle option would be inefficient, I bet the h80 fans blowing towards the front 180mm fan would kill airflow and cause a lot of turbulence inside the case. Stick with the first option unless your unhappy with cooling.

Having the fans setup like option 3 would probably get you 2-3c cooler on the cpu but you need t take the front panel off the case to get the screws. I have ran that configuration before so I know. I highly recommend trying the originally intended fan arrangement like option 1 before you try anything else. Honestly it will be fine.

Love this case, I do need help choosing a cpu cooler, preferably an air solution.

The case is awesome! The Noctua D14 will be the best air cooler you can fit in this case. Though you won't be able to fit a 3.5 inch hard drive in the drive cage. You would have to move it either to the very bottom under the cage, or in the 5.25 inch bays. You will also have to watch out for ram clearance. Your first slot will be blocked. If you toss on the fan in the front of it, all of your ram slots will be blocked. You will need low profile ram.

If you want a cheaper and / or smaller one then I recommend Cooler Master's 212 Evo. Great cooler for its performance/price ratio and wont block the drive cage or the first ram slot.

Thank you, I am hoping to keep the hdd cage and the ram is low profile. wink.gif
I would love to get the 212 evo in here, heard great reviews, just concerned about it fitting.

Can you confirm it fits 100% ;D a pic would be great if u have it.
Assuming it fits would the heat sink fan be in the front (next to hdd cage) or back .

Just a little update on how my first build went. Posted a few pages back in the thread. Also proof of the CM212EVO fitting in just fine...
