STH10 and 2 radiators?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
On the STH10 can you fit two 480 radiators on the bottom, each in push/pull formation or will they only fit with two radiators in either push or pull?

Yes there is plenty of room to put 2 480 radiators on the bottom push/pull. You would just have to put you PSU on the top. thumb.gif

Thanks Ziox. smile.gif +rep

I made a separate post on this but what do people usually do in terms of a setup.

Do they have BOTH of the radiators taking air INTO the case?
Do they have one radiator taking air INTO the case and one radiator pushing OUT of the case?
Do they have BOTH of the radiators pushing air OUT of the case?

I think people have done all three. If you're going with super thick rads e.g. 60mm+ then you may end up with little space in between and feel like going with one rad as intake and one as exhaust. You'll get better performance of course by not having them reuse the air.

Personally I'd have air come in the bottom of the heat chamber and exhaust out the sides.

So you would have cool air coming in from the bottom, through the radiators, and up into the case itself?

Then you would have the front and top vents blowing air out of the case?

Nope have them blow out the sides of the heat chamber. Close off the vents into the main chamber, if you have another rad mount it as intake in the front bays and exhaust out the back of the case or the top. It's not the only way to do it, just try and get fresh air to the rads smile.gif

This is exactly how I did it. I originally had both pulling air into the center of the bottom, but I changed it so one pulls air in and then blows it to the second one and then out. I did not see any difference in temps in my setup. maybe one degree.

Thank you very much.

I see you're not doing push/pull on both of them. Any reason for this?
post #9 of 9
With the triebwerk fans on the SR1480 it would have provided maybe a 1 inch of space between the two and from what I read on martinsliquidlabs analysis, the difference may only be 1 degree. I may still swap the fans for all the same type and do push pull on both. But I really like things quiet and did not think I needed both in push pull at the time I did the install. It would be intersetig to see the delta myself.

Right now my temps are great.

Thanks.
