Cooling of my Coolermaster 430 Elite

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi guys ,
I have a CM 430 Elite cabinet with two chasis fans....One is right in front and acts as intake , but i have doubts whether it makes any difference or no because its speed is really slow , there is one on the side which also acts as a intake and isnt so fast ..Both these are 120 mm.

Do i need to put more fans? I have space for two 120mm on the top and one can be put in the rear of the CPU .

Also , attached is a screenshot when i stress my CPU with Orthos and Temps are from CoreTemp.

Thanks for any help...!!

I would suggest at least 1 exhaust fan. I have the same case with a 140mm front fan (intake), 120mm side panel fan (intake) and 120mm rear fan (exhaust). I would use more fans but i'm on carpet so a bottom fan isn't possible and watch yourself on the top fan mounts as my motherboard doesn't allow me to fit fans at the top, as there isnt enough room between the motherboard and top of the case, despite it being of standard atx size.

I think that adding a rear exhaust would be beneficial, without costing too much or adding too much noise to the case.
