650D Fan Layout help!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey OCN, I have recently changed from a reference GTX 570 to a non reference card that now dumps hot air into my case and I'm trying to think of the best possible fan configuration right now.

here is how I have it now:

600


here is my setup incase you want to use this to change it up

600

do you guys think I should use the mesh side panel even though its noisy? thanks OCN! thumb.gif

If it was me, I'd try turning the front 200mm around as intake and keep the rest the same.

What I usually do is just play around with different configurations until I get the best I can get. Just me. smile.gif

This.

Always draw in air from the fans near the bottom of the case and have the rear and top fans exhaust

but the problem is, the GPU spits it's hot air back into the case and then the front 200mm pushes it back towards the intake of the GPU :/

Hot air always rises so you want as much cool air coming in through the bottom of the case to push the hot air out of the top

this is just my own opinion but i wont even bother putting exhaust fans at the top. i used to have just one 200mm and 120 mm intake at the front and only one 120mm exhaust. works pretty well. if there's an exhaust fan at the top, i would run it at low rpm.
