Absolutely agree tongue.gif In the picture you can only see 1 fan but all together i have 4 large fans (2 x 23cm and 2x18 cm) and a few small fans that am still thinking were to put them.

301

Looking great, I love the idea.

Is this being water-cooled? Either way, with only 4 fans, I'm a little weary that there might not be enough airflow to cool the motherboard VRM's. Just something to keep in mind I guess.

Was thinking about water cooling, but not yet because of the cost,, it will in the future, but not right away...4-5 months

So you think ill have a problem with temperatures???

I like the build, the design looks great.

If you're sticking with air cooling, I'd add several more fans. The air flow looks quite restrictive. How big are the fans, and how many CFM do they push?

Well If you'll be orientation the motherboard as you have it in your concept design, you would need to place an air cooler blowing from the top of the motherboard towards the PCIe slots which would essentially be blowing hot air from your CPU directly onto the back of your graphics cards and would provide next to no airflow across the passive heat sinks on the VRM's.

Placing a CPU cooler blowing air any other way would defeat the airflow pattern you have come up with.

One solution is to continue with the current setup, and you could possibly look in to using a RAM cooler like I did on my build (see picture below) to cool the VRM's. I was fine using a 212+ cooler that blew air across the VRM's but with my H100 there was virtually no airflow and my VRM's were getting hot enough to throttle the CPU down.

Now if your build is anything other then Bulldozer, you shouldn't have to worry too much about the throttling problem, but the extra heat is still not good. That's just my opinion of course so anyone else can feel free to chime in as well smile.gif

I think you will need the middle inner fans to be 100+ CFM if you are only having 2.
Maybe something like this?

One possible thought for a fan, would be to use a single blower type fan that uses its own power. You would get much greater CFM/Pressure, and could control the amount of air flow.

http://www.oregongardener.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=120&products_id=5755

You could mount this inside the top, with the exhaust blowing down under the desk. Then, cut out your intakes where you want air flow directed over components. You could even use filters on the intakes. At slower rpm's, it should be fairly quiet, yet still give you good air flow. Later, you could add rads to the intakes for water cooling.

Regular fans ought to do just fine as long as you get enough CFM off of 'em. A big intake and some 120mm fans inside directing the airflow. Also you should have some cuts along the way to offer the air an route to escape on the way to the exhaust (helps airflow)

CFM: about 156

Really nice idea. Can't wait to see how it turns out.
