Best way to setup my fans? - Page 2

post #11 of 16
second option for sure thumb.gif there should be a balance in airflow and as mingqi53 said hot air tends to rise up
post #12 of 16
Actually, I had the best results with the third option. I'm running universal blocks on my GPU's so the air in my case probably is a little hotter than in a case with fullcover blocks. Regarding concerns about cooling of the motherboard and RAM this will not be an issue because the air from a radiator rarely exceeds 35C which is sufficient for mobo components etc.

I'll try #2 first and then #3 if I don't get decent results.

Thanks guys

this would work well. i have setup 2 with a pressure fan on the hdd cage and it cools very well. i fold 24/7 and have prime 95'd overnight and max temp was 45 cpu (push only on the rad) and my gpu stayed at 80 or below, not the best but i kept the fan speed at like 45%
full speed with the fans knocks 5-7 off the cpu and 12-15 off the gpu for me

In my den is where I have my PC and my aquarium. My tank is a 6' tank that runs both a sump and canister so the noise of my PC will never become greater then that of the pumps running on my tank. So I always have fans at 100% and I can't hear them.

Right now I only have a 240mm rad and I'm running into very high temps with a minimal voltage increase, the 120mm rad I got in this week and tomorrow I plan to take my loop and case apart and redo everything. I'm calling it operation 'COOL ALL THINGS!'
