Question about airflow (cm 690 ii)

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi,
i am new here. I read several advices about airflow here in threads and i checked the advices for my case. I want to try something bit different. I want to ask you, if it's possible solution.

scaled.php?server=856&filename=casee.png&res=medium

The upper front one is Noctua NF-P12-1300.
The 2nd front one will have to buy in these days. I don't want silent machine, but still i don't want turbine biggrin.gif But i have to look for some powerfull one (i saw possibilities in main thread in this category).
The right one is 80x15mm. Is it good to install that one there or is it useless?
The rear one is the standart one which i get with case.
And the last one is the bottom left one. I want to exhaust hot air from graphics with some not powerfull but 38mm fan. Is it bad or good idea?
That 2 green lines are graphic cards nvidia 460.
(That squares blue and red are for side fans, blue is intake and red is exhaust)

Thanks for any advice.

Thanks. i've not bought any yet. I'm thinking about several several candidates.
The bottom front one:
140mm
Noctua NF-P14 FLX
Scythe Slip Stream SM1425SL12H
or 120mm
Cooler Master R4-BMBS-20PK-R0 Blade Master
Noctua NF-P12-1300
SCYTHE Gentle Typhoon one of version (3000/4250/5400)

The left side one:
Arctic-Cooling Arctic Fan 12L, 120x120mm
I hope this one can be enough for getting hot air out and have positive airflow.

I know that noctua is the silentest from my selection. But i want to supply graphic cards with cold air. So i am not sure which one could be better for this support. My priority is performance/noise.

Thanks for any advice!

I got mine in the opposite way. The intake is in the back (high rpm fan) blowing on my cpu cooler (push pull, TR Archon), if your case gets hot, the air coming from the front could get warmer than the imminent one in the back especially if you have hard drives installed, you blow the hot hair on the cpu or gpu. If you have a blower cooler for your gpu its fine, don't have to worry about hot air exhaust from vga cards if not id put the sidefan to exhaust. Even better try to separate the 2 compartments CPU and GPU if its possible.

Doesn't the case come with its own fans. You might try to use them.

Cooling plan is excellent. Later, you may wish to try putting a downward-blowing fan in the forward top fan position to see if this helps cooling.
