Side panel fan or no... - Page 2

post #11 of 18
Sidepanel fans are the most important case fans.
Why do you think on premade computers they only have sitepanel fans?
For the looks and sound it isnt the greatest place but for airflow very important.
Good luck

What about the cases with windows and no vents?

They suck for air cooling. I'm going to call you out on this so far, Can you post a screen to porve decent temps with your set up on prime 95 for a few hours?

I am not arguing the importance of them for rigs that have dual mounted graphics cards, or cases that haven't been modded, but I have a single graphics card and I have mods made to my case as I originally posted. My air flow comes from the front and is directed by multiple internal 80mm fans to critical parts of my rig. I have a modded pci fan that pulls air from a stagnant pool at the bottom of my case and feeds it to my graphics card. I will post as soon as I have the oppurtunity, I don't leave my pc on for days at a time so I will have to start this over the weekend when I am off. I will take a pic of the napkin or tissue paper near my vent to show no positive or negative pressure too.

*edit* I also have an internal 120mm fan feeding air from intake fans to my cpu cooler.

Also KhaoticKomputing I don't want this to turn into a war or anything, I am taking everyone's advice seriously I wouldn't have made the original post if I wasn't going to I am just reporting what I am seeing, however I do want to order another side panel fan just to be safe...

I agree, not starting a war. but some of what you have posted make's no sence what so ever.I use a single GPU, and have fans located inside my case to keep air flowing, and if i turn off my side panel fan, my GPU temps go up by about 10-15c. I have made no mods to my case, and am not running 2 GPU's.

I have also spent lots of hours in testing case's and airflow in PC's. and some of your claims differ from what my test's have proven. I have used many case's, form "stock" white box case's to high end "gaming" case's and all my results where the same. If you have somthing to teach me, I would like to know. You should do a search on this site for Elume. He is the guru of Air Cooling on this thread, and has documented ALL of his test here. Keep in mind there is no hate here! This is a learning community, and if you have found methods that many of us have dissproved proof of it and exactly what you did would be great, so we can pass the info on to other people in your situation.Cheers


Edit: Also, your parts(CPU and GPU) are kinda out dated, and dont make the kind of heat the rest of us are dealing with. it is common for people on here to hit 70-85c on there GPU(this is a single card), while people with dual GPU's and OC's are hitting close to 90-95c, i dought there is anything that could make your GPU hit those temps. Also lots of us have extreeme OC's on our CPU's(my 24/7-365 OC is 3.8GHz, would be 4.0+ but my mobo hate's me) so some of what we do to keep our temps in check may not apply to you due to your parts using less voltage to keep running.

Ah see there was the problem, misunderstanding. I was talking about ambient case temps and cpu temps they did not fluctuate at all without the side intake fan, gpu however I will admit did but not enough for me to worry. I do run outdated hardware, my sig rig is my programming machine, I work mostly in C, Java and basic system level programming for calculators and cell phones, so no need for the latest and greatest. That doesn't mean I don't want a monster rig though. And the bit of overclocking I have is sufficient for me (from 2.8ghz to 3.6ghz) I will post the pic of my rig showing neutral pressure in my case for you though.

See, we have found the answer In most gaming rigs we cant pull off a airflow like that, out hardeware would overheat fast, when I play BF:BC2 my CPU temps are higher than anything IBT or Prime could get it to do. This would be becouse of the 70c GPU sitting right next to it lol. If your just doing porgraming, and have a small OC airflow isnt top priority. glad we found the reason! Cheers
