Fan direction? - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Thread Starter 
Was thinking about something like a windtunnel, I wanna keep it under 100$, as much as I love NZXT, their cases are a bit pricey.

Also, relating to my question, im getting 5C higher GPU and CPU temps with the new fan setup, but the ambient temp in the case dropped about 4C, and its about 10db quieter now. Do you think I should keep it this way, or try tomorrow with all fans pulling intake?

Cable management can play a huge roll, clean it up the best you can. Zip ties, bread ties, whatever, keep them together the best you can. Also ambient temp plays a roll too, what the temp in the room, and how is the air flow in the room? Keeping the case off the floor will help with dust and stuff, plus theres not alot of air floor one the floor either. And carpet can be a inslutator too, I remmeber my playsations getting so damn hot!!! Just a lil food for thought.

I have my computer on a desk, about 3 ft off the ground, and the room has good airflow right now, got a big tower fan running, the temp right now is about 24C. and my cases ambient temp is only 25. max load my cpu was running at 34 with the new setup, and the gpu was running in the high 60s on half fan power.

Also, my PSU is not modular, and the cables are really short on it. So I can barely move the cables, never mind attempt to manage them, so I guess I'm getting a new PSU soon too.

Is the case right up next to the wall? If so move away from the wall some, enough to give the exhaust air somewhere to go? Feel the drywall is it hot? Then its to close to the wall. Heat will rad off the wall, causing heat build up, not alot, but its there.

Not all case/set-ups are the same, if something works for you, then do it, but it might not work for the next guy with the same case/set-up. Just play around, if its cooler, then go with it!
