Should I flip Fan

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I just installed the antec kuhler 620 in a push/pull config but im wondering if i should flip my top exhaust to an intake so it pulls cool air in to be pushed out through the rad? that would make it all intake 1 front 2 side 1 top and exhaust through the rad out the back. would that be a good setup?

I would'nt to be honest. That's just my opinion though. I would have to actually see the setup to make a real assumption. What you want to avoid is having bad airflow, or conflicting airflow. You want everything to flow easily through the case so you dont have hot air just circulating. And from what your describing that sounds like that could be a problem. However I could also be completely wrong.

Leave the top as an exhaust, and set your rad up as an intake at the rear. This will feed your rad with the coldest air possible. Trying to have the top as an intake, while keeping you rad as an exhaust is going to mess up your air flow even more, and not feed your rad with the coolest possible air.
