Will This CPU Cooling System Fit in Case? - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Thread Starter 
It'll be ok for definite now, freezer 13 is much shorter. And for when it arrives, how should I install it? Motherboard is of corse vertical. Got fan on side of case but no fan at back. Obviously heat leaves cpu up pipes and up heatsink, but then? DOes the fan move heat away from the metal or pull cool air in and heat leaves the back? Therefore, which way should I position it? There are holes at the back of case, could the heat leave through them? And wouldn't it be better for case and cooler fan to be close togehter? facing each other? Or exposed fins of heatsink to be close to case fan?

Many Thanks!

I think you are wrong

Ok wrong in the fact that its not the the exact same size.(my mistake - thanks). But I know the Hyper 212 is one of the most popular CPU coolers and more than likely used in a variety of cases including the Galaxy III. But you proved it would fit anyways. 7mm shorter.

It's ok, I'm happy. Freezer .13 will definitely fit and it's inredibly easy to install - preapplied thermal paste. Also has a second underside fan to cool motherboard underneath

The way the cooler works is the heat is transfered from the CPU up the copper pipes. It then spreads the heat across the metal fins. The fan then pulls or pushes air across those fins (depends how your fan takes the air) which then takes the heat away allowing more heat to be move to the metal fins again.

The way you want to set it up is have air come in from the front of the case (or side if you can actually fit that heat sink on within that case) and then the CPU fan to suck air from that source and drive the air into the back of the case where you have another fan pushing hot air out. That way youll have a nice constant supply of air for the CPU cooler and not stale hot air hanging around.
