How are my temperatures? - Page 2

Should my strongest fan be an intake or exhaust? When I put the scythe on the side as an intake it makes a loud whiney noise. Either it's causing then CPU to rotate faster or the vents are making it make that noise.

So, what would be the best fan setup for my system then?

This is what I have to work with. x2 120mm COOLER MASTER stock fans that I have in my Centurion 5 case that are not being used, 1 Scythe Ultra Kaze, x2 120 mm LED fans (stock) that came in the Storm Scout (one on the back and one on the front as an intake) and a 140mm fan (stock) that is in the top of the Storm Scout. all the fans I have are COOLER MASTER (stock), other than the Kaze.

I don't want to rune Prime95 because I don't want to kill anything. I'm sure sure what the breaking point is.

So after a while of experimenting with different fan setups. I decided to take the stock 120mm exhaust fan, replace it with Scythe Ultra Kaze and move it to the side of the case as an intake. After that I reversed the top 140mm fan to be intake instead of an exhaust.

So for my final setup I have 3 intakes (140mm on top, 120mm on the side, and 120mm on the front) and 1 exhaust (the most powerful fan I have), the Scythe Ultra Kaze.

My temperatures have dropped about 11 degrees. I figured since the other three fans are less powerful than the Scythe, it would be easier for the Scythe to pull air from the three fans. There is air coming in from all directions but leaving through only one which is the back.

What does everyone think?

it's called positive pressure
just make sure to filter all the intakes and you'll be all set

those are great results, 11 degrees is significant. i would still consider replacing the stock cpu cooler, even a passive aftermarket cooler would be better than stock if you don't want more fans

It's always great to experiment, congrats.

The Storm Scout is a decent case. I had added another 140mm fan up front and two 120mm's in the door. Temps were great. I will say the HAF 932 with everything stock blew away my updated Scout. I now use the Scout as the case in my boys room and it is serving it's purpose well there.

I should see even more of a decrease in temperatures after replacing all the stock fans. I REALLY like the Scythe Ultra Kaze. The Kaze is not as loud as everyone says it is. I see people complaining about fans with even less db than the UK. Quite ridiculous.

My final fan setup will be 2 120mm red LED fans on the window (intake), 1 140mm red LED fan (intake), 1 140mm non-LED in the top (exhaust) and 1 120mm non-LED in the back (exhaust). I will be using the Ultra Kaze for the top or the back exhaust. Maybe I will put a Kaze in the top and the back.

Don't use sleeve bearing fans in top or bottom, they'll wear pretty quickly.
