It's because I'm not using any of the features on thr z68 board, and this one is $70+ less after rebate. also, this was the original board I was lookin into before I was trying for ivy. I wasn't impressed by ivy, and had a chane to save $200 over sandy bridge e that it was worth it to me.

I'm putting my Switch together later today. Can I get some suggestions on fan placements? My main question is if I should mount a fan in the bottom spot for an intake? and if the 2 internal fans you can pivot are worth using? Is there a consensus on this yet?


I currently have 2 140mm BCs mounted in the front. 3 140mm nzxt fans exhaust in the top. (exhaust or intake for top fans? air cooling only currently)


I replaced the back 140mm with an Ultra Kaze 3000rpm. CPU cooler will be CM 212evo, with another Kaze added to the stock fan. I haven't removed the pivot fan yet.



Suggestions?

For air cooling you'll want the top fans as exhaust, the front as intake, as well as any bottom fans, and the rear should be exhaust. I would leave your ultra kaze's on the 212. Better to have matched fans with a push pull config.

As far as the pivoting fans: if it is blowing cooler air onto your gpus, then I would think they're worth using. smile.gif

Yep. Put a fan between the PSU and the HDD cages on the bottom as intake, and the fans on the HDD cages (the pivot fans) are worth it as they are keeping your GPU's from melting your face off.... Ok... maybe not that, but they are effective. smile.gif
