NZXT Switch 810 build - fan set up question (Diagram drawn included)

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
*Diagram Updated*
Guys,
I have purchased all my parts and will be starting the system build next week. You helped me a lot in the following thread.
http://www.overclock.net/t/1250720/help-needed-for-a-1500-gaming-pc-build

Thanks for the help.

Following is the diagram I have drawn for the NZXT Switch 810 fan set up. Honestly speaking I dont have much idea about the Corsair H100 push pull. Can you please comment on the sketch if its correct or I should change anything. any help is much appreciated.

The diagram is correct apart from one thing, the Switch has included 140mm fans, not 120mm.

It may also be difficult to attach the H100 with 140mm fans on top of it due to screw placement.

Omg, this reply was fast. Thanks.

Yeah, I realized that front included fan is 140mm!!.

So, I should not attempt mounting two more fans on top of Corsair H100 ?

All fans included with the Switch are 140mm. I recommend using 120mm fans on both sides of the H100. All 140mm fan mounts in the Switch are also 120mm fan compatible.

What I meant when I was saying it would be best to have 120mm fans on both sides of the H100 is to replace the 140mm fans above it with 120mm fans. The 120mm fans on top of the H100 would be in the top fan compartment next to the one 140mm fan in the top front. This way, you won't have any issues getting everything screwed into place and would get better performance.

which fan types did you end up going with and what temps are you getting under high load. I went with kraken X40 cooling and think that I should have gone with X60. Also because I am hackintoshing I have no control over the kraken fan profile which I think might be my main issue. I am getting 80+ temps during major encodes.

One problem...
Your TX 850 PSU fan sucks from the back of the case.
The arrow should go left to right for the PSU. My Antec HCG-750 has a top mounted fan.
I have a Sabertooth X79 MB and the RAM mounts to either side of the CPU. Your ram style (with or without cooling fins) makes your CPU cooling fan choice a bit tricky. My first choice CPU fan did not allow clearance for the RAM.

I ended up getting the ZALMAN CNPS9900MAX-B which mounts over the top of the CPU with out overhang. This configuration does not restrict access to the RAM sticks should I ever need to re-seat them.

I also installed two 140mm fans on top. This configuration allows for plenty of cooling.

Remember this is a big case and the airflow properties are very good with out the need to convert it into a vacuum cleaner. I see no need to use liquid cooling with this case. This system has with moderate over clocking, been trouble free for over a year without the extra fans or liquid cooling. This is with a third gen i7 CPU.
The big issue is keeping the bottom and front dust screens clean.
With a bottom fan your bottom filters are going to clog within 7-10 days of operation. At least the floor area within 15 feet of the computer will be clean.smile.gif
