Inwin dragonslayer case airflow help

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So I have one 92mm exhaust three 140mm intakes one 80mm intake for the hdds and two 120mm for intake.

I removed the io shield and the pci metal brackets so more airflow can be forced out of the case.
Should I try to reverse the top 2 140mm fans so they exhaust?

ok so you have 1x 120mm at the bottom as intake. (PSU fan if intaking from the bottom will immediatley exhaust out the back of the PSU and should not be included in your Inside case airflow chart.) You have 2x 140mm Fans at the top as Intake, 1x 80mm fan at the front for intake, 1x 120.. at the fron t for intake but only 1x 92mm for exhaust?

Top fans exhaust, almost a rule. Make it happen and I'm sure your case will be much happier. edit: Heat rises, the fans just help that happen biggrin.gif

What type of GTS250 is yours? The traditional 'front centrifugal intake fan + rear exhaust'?

I would not use the top fan(s) at all if your A70 is oriented with its exhaust out the rear. That fan(s) right on top of the cooler is not helping by intaking or exhausting. It might even do a little harm. BTW, Inwin Dragon Slayer should only have one 140mm top fan. How come yours has two?

One thing you need to consider is whether or not the rear 92mm exhaust fan is fast enough to extract all the hot air from the A70. If not, it forms a hot air bottleneck there.
If so, consider re-orient the A70 to exhaust upward through the 140mm top fan. This is the only situation where I would consider using that top fan.

hang on let me take some pics lol.
My a70 is mounted vertically too.
and the big front is 140mm xigmatek and 2 stock 140mms mounted together at the top and one delta running half throttle 92mm exhaust

Edit more pics coming i had to email them to myself from my gf iphone bleh

Also I have the zalman edition so the heat isnt blown out the back of the case

1- No.. heat rise ONLY IN A OPEN NOT INFLUENCED STATE (in this case air from fans) in a case goes where you push it.. specially in a very small confined space like a computer case

2.- top fan exahust.. mmm what are they going to exaust?? heat?? nop.. hot air?? coming from where, the front intake fan wich is blocked from hard drives??

unless you have door fan pushing a lot of cfm.. then no..


Back exaust PLUS top exaust the only thing they creat is a HOT POCKET AROUND THE CPU.. think about it for a sec =)

I also have a Dragonslayer for which I've been looking for tips on airflow. I have a total of seven (7) of these fans in the case (in varying sizes, but they're all of this style). There are four 120mm's currently as exhaust on the side panel, and a 120mm intake on the front panel. There is an 80mm intake on the front attached to the hard drive cage (I have two 3.5" HDDs in the cage in the top and bottom slots, with the middle open for airflow). There is a 140mm exhaust on the top mount. I have the stock 92mm fan on the rear exhaust. Using konspiracy's initial picture as a reference, it's almost the same arrangement; just picture four fans on the side panel instead of two (that exhaust instead of intake), and a single 140 exhausting on the top instead of his stacked dual intake.

The PSU fan system is self-contained as mentioned in one of the above replies. My CPU cooler is one of these; I realize that this CPU fan orientation might not work well considering the rest of the arrangement, and I'm considering getting a new one. This is my current GPU, although I just bought one of the MSI 7950's that was on sale on Newegg that should be here this week.

Any further thoughts? I realize this is a stale thread, and I'm brand new to OCN; thanks in advance if anyone has some new insight.
