How can I improve my airflow?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I have a corsair 650D case and many people in the Corsair 650D thread say that cutting the front intake grill will cause temperatures to decrease.

Is this true? can someone show me a chart of the temps? like a comparison of before and after?

Also I am buying some Bitfenix Spectre Pro 200mm BLUE led fans will they increase my airflow over the stock ones?

Btw my current temps don't break 60c on the cpu and gpu will playing games.

Thanks.

GPU less than 60 is fine, but for your CPU I would wait until you get that EVO to start cutting anything. BTW the 650D/800D are primarily watercooling cases because of their lack of airflow

Ohk thanks. my gpu is a 46c when gaming with the fans @ custom 38%

Ohk it should be here soon smile.gif

I know they are but I love the case so much, my next build might be water cooled.
