Air flow direction for haf-x 942

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Will this work if i set the airflow up like in this picture. Plus i would have a corsair h100 on top blowing air out with the two 200mm fans that are on top also blowing air out from the top of the case. The one in the front will blow cool air in. The one in the back will blow air out also. To make a fan blow air in or out, all i have to do is turn the fan around right? If you have better solution please let me know. thanks

Yup, that's the standard way for the HAF to flow, is it not? And yes, all you have to do is turn the fan around.

I think that's the normal way for it to flow. Do you think i will get good cooling if it is set up like this. I know some people with the haf-x use 4 fans on the radiator for a push pool plus the 2 on top to suck air out. I am getting this case with new hard drive and and 6b of ram. I am just waiting for it to restock at new egg. I guess when i get it i could try different things out and see what works best.

I'm not too sure what you're trying to say with the H100 but I would put all the top fans to exhaust, leave the rear 120/140 where it is on exhaust, and see if you can add a 140mm fan to the optical drive bays. I've got two 140mm's in my drive bays feeding air to the H100 and it's doing great. Side panel just leave on intake as it is.

Like this.
