Thinking of doing push pull with 3x AeroCool 120mm Shark Fan (Red LED) pushing and 3x whatevers (havent decided yet) pulling .
I'm only doing my CPU... so I know the difference between 360 rad vs 240 rad might be negligible... but... but........ it's bigger biggrin.gif (and would let me worry less if I expand to GPU in the future)
And I really would prefer to leave the HDD bays in place..... so that leaves the top or bottom!
Edit: Though... I suppose I COULD use a 240x120 on the top with no problems, and put a 120x120 rad in place of my bottom HDD bay fan (as I'm only using one of my HDD bays)...
My only question then would be the airflow? Because I want to do push/pull on all my rads, right? With the air being push out of the case...... or can I use the 120x120 as an intake fan still?
338
Is it ok for a radiator to serve as an intake fan in push/pull? Because otherwise that would leave a gross imbalance of outtake to intake if I put that bottom rad pushing out...

well as a few have said.

For the best cooling / performance go for Positive pressure (all fans blow in the case).

the air will escape where it likes smile.gif u got Positive pressure idear rong .. it means that ther is pressure inside the case due to all fans pushing air into the case .

negative pressure means that u would have all your fans in exhaust settings so ther would be a vacume inside not pressure smile.gifthumb.gif

what viper said go to page 1 and have a look at the mods and logs to how to's on page 1 u can also see how to put 3 rads in the trooper smile.gif

My planned watercooling loop smile.gif

- Raystorm CPU Block
- Heatkiller GTX 680 waterblock
- 2 x XSPC EX240 Rads
- Danger Den Rad-Reservoir
- Swiftech MCP655-B
- Orange Tubing

Also working out a wire cover with Dwood.

325
The CM Storm logo will be cut out of the cover, I will then add a peace of sandblasted acrylic or defussing sheets behind them to be lit with a subtle orange led wink.gif it'll be sexy.

Being broke never felt so good smile.gif

Time out.... I should have my radiator fans (on top of my case set as intake? Now I am confused... I thought you wanted a current of air in your tower. I feel like I just got totally noobified!

You want to have airflow and pressure, really. So lets say you have the two stock fans in the front, two at the bottom, a 200 at the top and a 140 in the back. I would have the front, bottom, and top fan as an intake and the back fan as an exhaus (this will help move the air coming out of the cpu cooler) l. Since you have so many intake fans and so few exhaust fans, you will have positive pressure and will avoid dust. This is a very basic explanation of courae. Ultimately you want to add up all the cfms of the fans and map the airfow to see where you are.

Easy now, this will end up an intel vs Amd war lol. It depends on your setup within the case. i tested mine both neg and pos. I used a smoke test so i could understand the actual flow pattern of the air. but most important i tested temps, With my particular setup, i intake through the front and exhaust in the rear. That sustained my case temps at the lowest. you can have to many fans blowing at once and causing a stagnant pocket of air. i found this pocket by adding fans to the bottom. so i removed them.
set your fans up the way you want, use a simple temp test. and find the right combination for your setup

if u where air cooled yes u r right but as your cooling is on the walls of the case not on the card 1+1=2 biggrin.gif

normaly the air outside the case is cooler than the air inside smile.gif

the pressurized air will find its way thrue ventilation places like pci slots and soforth

the intake fans are still going to pull dust in and it will settle inside the case as ther is less exhaustion than intake smile.gif


but this is a bit like amd vs intel noone will win smile.gif

Well dust is going to get in at some extent. I think the idea that negative pressure pulls dust from any open parts of the case is valid and causes more significant dust buildup than that of positive pressure (dust filters help as well). But at the end of the day, if youre anal enough to map out airflow and argue with some people about, youre probably anal enough to dust your computer out once a month wink.gif
