Proper fan/airflow configuration for HAF 922

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So I'm loving my HAF 922 thus far. I'm wondering what the best fan/airflow configuration would be for my rig.



This is how I was planning on setting it up, but it seems like there's too much intake...and there's only one exhaust (albeit a large one).

Right now I have the stock front 140mm intake and top 200mm exhaust, my H80 in push/pull intake, and one 120mm intake on the side panel (will grab a second when I get a second video card, or throw in one 200mm). Throwing a 120mm on the bottom doesn't seem like it'd hurt, I'm just waiting on a modular PSU so I have the room down there.

How would you guys do it?

EDIT: the side panel fan is a 10db Slipstream fan. I may use Gentle Typhoons for all of the 120mm's (besides the H80 ones) for less noise since I could have up to 8 fans going depending on the config.

I would probably recommend making the h80 exhaust out the back. That way there is a lot less heat going inside your case.

I'll have to check out how that effects CPU temps. (not that they're an issue, I currently stay in the low 60's under Prime95 load)

Yeah might change a bit. But it helps with all your other components run a bit cooler since the heat from your CPU is going straight out of the case.

which means gpu won't be getting any extra heat as well as your mobo.

I'm going to go with this setup with the H80 as exhaust out the back.
