Does not ship to Hong Kong...Doubt I'll be able to find it locally either.

USB Wi-Fi dongles have a max speed of 150Mbs where the PCI cards can have 300 or 450Mbs

oh how wrong you are...

I've had my eye on this case for a while, and want to get it to upgrade from the budget case I have now.

But I have one issue with my setup that I was hoping someone could help me with before I go ahead and buy, which is that my CPU cooler only mounts vertically (this is a Noctua NH-U9B SE2 on an AMD board).

So the although the case is going to be moving air from the front to the back of the case, the CPU cooler is going to be pulling air from top to bottom.

Does anyone else have a similar set up and know whether it's likely to have any particularly negative impact on cooling?

not sure if this picture applies in your situation



is that what you are asking?

Hmm not quite. As far as I can tell, the NH-U9B SE2 only mounts on to my motherboard with the fans arranged vertically. So basically as in the pics you posted, but with the whole CPU cooler turned 90 degrees.

Because it's going to be moving air in a different direction to the case intake/exhaust fans, I'm not sure what effect it will have on cooling inside the case.

AHH ok i miss the part about the AM3 socket thing. sorry biggrin.gif

i was under the impression that the mounting kit on the U9B works similar to the way the NH-D14's worked but it's actually different.

as far as cooling performance. obviously you will be taking a hit on the temp but i don't think it would be that huge. i would just have it push air up towards the GPU and would definitely look into putting a 120mm exhaust fan on the case to help with both cpu and gpu cooling.

or... you can just look into maybe replacing it with a hyper212 which is "fairly" cheap or maybe even upgrade to a NH-D14.

Thanks for the reply smile.gif

Unfortunately I've spent quite a lot on a few other upgrades recently, so won't be able to afford upgrading the cooler just yet. It's a bit annoying that I can't turn it round, especially as there aren't many decent compact cases with a top exhaust which would work with it (the only other one I like is the Sugo SG09, but it's more expensive and from what I've read it's a lot noisier).

But I do have a decent 120mm Noctua fan which I can use for the exhaust which sounds like it will help if I get the TJ-08

Do you think I'd be better off with the cooler pushing air towards the GPU rather than to the bottom of the case? Just curious as I thought the other way around might have been better.

in this particular application I would push the air up towards the GPU. however I would only use a push fan instead of having both push and pull on it. this way it leaves a gap between the GPU and the cpu cooler for the 120mm exhaust to remove the heat before it is recycled back by either the cpu or the gpu. if you leave it in a push/pull, then all of the heat from the CPU would be blasted right into the back of the GPU w/o any chance of being removed by the exhaust fan. if you only have a push fan, then the gap between the GPU and CPU can allow the heat to be safely removed by the combined effort of the AP181 and the exhaust fan.

typically if you have a front/back orientation, recycling of warm air wouldn't be much of a problem due to the airflow design of the case. however in your situation, you are creating a thermal pocket between 2 of the hottest components in the system which would be best mitigated by an additional exhaust fan.
