its probably 2*F warmer in here now than it was before
68-69*F during first test and 70-71*F right now



will edit if its the wrong pic. cant tell. its in my profile pics

*EDIT* nevermind no proof. of ambients or pre-4 fan set-up.

consider me wrong doh.gif

i will say this, this room is always 68-72*F because the woman is a sis to the cold and has no clue what ambients do to temps on a pc.

No worries man, although I think I might do some testing to double-check those figures myself. I have 4 Corsair SP120s so if I have time in the next few days I'll do delta measurements on my own time

After the holiday obligations I finally had some time to build my new 300R. Here it is in a testrun with the asus CHIVE and FX-8350.The push/pull H60 was a tight fit under the top fans but it looks good if I may say so smile.gif (don't mind the crappy pic quality)



Not really satisfied with the cabling and original sidewindow yet, but thats something for the near future.

I recently build my first real system in a 300R and I'm just wondering about the airflow.

I have a Corsair H60 as CPU cooler as push/pull intake, getting great temps with 3570k @ 4,6GHz OC. The only other fan in the case is the front-bay intake that came with the case.

I'm wondering how I could improve my airflow. Should I change my H60 to exhaust? Should I add 2 exhausts on top (AF120's for example) and keep the H60 as intake?

I haven't been really able to stress the full system yet to check temps, because of my pos HD4890 wich will be replaced next month.

Anyone got any insight for me?

If I had a radiator in my 300R I'd have it on the exhaust. I wouldn't want the the hot air circulating around the case, I would want the air to be heated up as it is leaving the case so the air inside the case is a little bit cooler.

But the downside to having the radiator as exhaust is you'll be pushing hot air trough the radiator resulting in higher CPU temps?

Suggestion to make it cleaner?
thanks.

the heat from the rad is insignificant. besidea, with enough fans doing both intake and exhaust, heat will never be an issue. yes, buy more fans
