post #1041 of 2766
Hello guys, I'm planning to install a third fan to my Phanteks PH-TC14PE. So Can I mount my leftover 120mm case fan to the front of the CPU cooler, notice that the three white plastic strip are already stick to where a third140mm fan should be install in front above the red memory ram slot. Will a 120mm fan plastic part melt when the cooler heats up? Also what splitter cable do i need to run three fan through a 4 pin connector on board cpu fan?

You need to attach your middle fan to the front tower, not the back tower. As it is you have push/pull on back tower. Normal is pull/pull; one on each tower.

Adding a 3rd fan only changes temps -1c and that's using 3 stock cooler fans. Using a 120mm case fan probably won't even help by 1c.

Don't worry about the strips on cooler. They are for vibration, not heat.. and CPU / cooler never get hot enough to melt plastic.

I thought normal was push/push the two stock?

Indeed. Push / push is most common. My bad. When RAM is too tall for push / push people normally use pull / pull, which I assume is why noob510 didn't do push / push.

I am fairly new to Overclock and this is my first PC build that's why my fan configuration are a little odd lol. From what you said If i understand correctly,my middle fan should be front to push hot air to the back, then the existing white 140mm back fan should be in the middle pulling the heat from the first cooler and then pushing it to the back exhaust case fan?

Also i have two top case fan working as exhaust above CPU cooler, so does these need to be change to drawn in cool air to the cooler?

As for my GPU card, there is an extra 120 fan I have left over, should I instal a side fan to work as an intake air to the GPU or working as an exhaust?

Note I have one white LED 140mm fan working as intake in front front of my hard disk and my ram are not tall a third fan can be install in front of the cooler no problem.

Please help me achieve optimal cooling performance for my case.

*What I meant was you have 2 fans on one tower. If you can move your back fan to the front than that is the best fan position.
*Hard to say with the top fans. The back top fan exhaust for sure. Front may work better as intake.. or not. Only way to know is to test by running full CPU load and see what temps you get.
*Same with the side fan. What GPU do you have?

My GPU is Asus Gtx 660 TI http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121656&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-na-_-na-_-na&cm_sp=&AID=10446076&PID=3938566&SID= .Alright I will do what you suggest and do some bench to see if cooling improve or not. Going to do it after work.

you can also try 3 * 120mm fans instead of what you want originaly.
case airflow - always front to back or bottom to top if you gota silverstone case(?raven? tj?)
to giv yo an idea- my setup:
front intake -1*200mm + 2*120mm in 5.25 bays
bottom intake 140mm
side intake 2*140mm
cpu cooler 2*120mm
rear exhaust 140mm (phanteks fan)
top exhaust 1*200mm

all my fans run @low rpm 900 to 1300rpm
from my f.controller except my cpu/gpu fans.
and the highest temps ive seen while gaming :cpu 50 gpu 56

like doyll said only way ur gna now is test for your self to see what works best for you
