Water Cooling Setup - Page 3

post #21 of 29
I would point the rad fans blowing air out (exhaust) and the hd fan in (intake), otherwise it looks good.

That was my original idea. So i would use the natural air rise to assist in pushing the hot air out, but others didnt agree. They say to use the cooler air from outside the case to cool the rads and then just use the front as the exhaust. I get it, but that would also mean that i would have more hot air inside my case because both of my intakes would end up being warm after passing through the rads. On top of that i would have to use the front (way down on the bottom) as my exhaust, forcing the air in the opposite direction it wants to go. Idk maybe it would work both ways?

I would rather have slightly warm air, and that's really arguable, goin thru the rads instead having really warm air heating everything up in my case on it's way out the lowest point in your case.

120mm fan = 1450rpm
120mm rad = 8 FPI
230mm fan = 900rpm
200mm rad = 8 FPI
452

Whats important is you have everything positioned correctly from what i can see....you can always turn your fans around and play with intake/exhaust to see what gets you better temps.
i would however recomend using 120mm fans on that top rad vs. using the 230mm fan
looks good other than that...keep us posted! and have fun!



*EDIT*

This may or may not help you. i know your setup is different than mine but after hours of changing things back and forth and checking temps the best setup for my rig is shown in the pic

Yea i think the setup is good with the bottom as the intake, but i agree with Saancho "you can always turn your fans around and play with intake/exhaust to see what gets you better temps".. I think that is exactly what i am going to be doing in my case. the setup is good, just have to play with the fans. Im thinking 3/8" ID red tubing due to space concerns and i think it looks better than the 1/2" and i think the flow will be just fine with the 900L/h pump. I am going to keep the top fan 230mm because (in addition to it being quieter than 2-4 120mm fans) the thickness of my 230mm is only 20mm and i cant find ANY other fans that will fit in its place.

I'd try to get it right cuz even though you can just flip the fans, it's a big pain in the arse to do it. If you're new to this you are probably more energized by it, but after building as many loops, I'm too lazy to hehe.

This will be my first water cooled system so i should have plenty of excitement to mess around with it, so that i get it right. thumb.gif

I totally agree and disagree with everyone else that has it setup instake in instead of out. Maybe those who have intake in don't have their stuff causing as much heat as others but STILL youre moving HEAT back in your case through the warm/hot rad and back on the components making them even hotter than they ever were before and thats a no no. I totally agree with "tsm106" as some enthusiasts and experts I've talked to have said. Heat rises always remember and the coolest air is at the bottom area of your case. Its a fact and isn't arguable. You will have little heat arise inside but not enough to bother your temps and having a nice big 140mm in front should help. I am fortunate enough to have a 800D with a huge filter on the bottom which brings all that nice cool air up.

So you're saying do exactly what i had planned to do in my original post? I had figured the same thing "heat rises" and it would be best to use the only fan i have as my intake because the temp of the air at it will be constant and always cool. While flipping it to the exhaust makes the hot air (trying to rise) have to go against its nature and move to the bottom of the case. On top of that i figured that having 1 intake with 2 exhaust would be best because there is a lot more hot air in the computer to be pushed out than cool air needing to go in.
