Power Supply Cooling? And another random question... Please reply!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Case: Thermaltake Chaser MK-I, CPU: i7-3820 not OC yet.

I successfully build my first computer and quite proud smile.gif but that aside I tried to set up a push-pull air flow system where cold air is coming in from the bottom and front while hot air is expelled from the top and back (thus hitting my fan throwing cold air back down to my computer) and I think it's working great my temps are as follows. 480

Layout:
PSU Fan - Pull - Bottom.
Front Case 1 - Pull - Front
Back Case 1 - Push - Back
Top Case 1 - Push - Top
Top Case 2 - Push - Top
CPU Fan 1 - Pull - Front
CPU Fan 2 - Push - Back

Pull cold, push hot, sorry if that was confusing. Also noramlly it's a little colder by like 2c lol.

Anyways: I put my PSU upside down? Right side up? Dunno, fan was facing down since I followed newegg how to build a computer / other guides when building it and he put his face down. Is this right? I have a corsair 800w gaming series psu. Just wondering, does it really matter? - Thanks


ALSO!!! Random important software question kinda:

I was trying to organize my files so I didn't have pointless programs (adobe reader specifically, NERO stuff, WinZip,) on my SSD taking up space and move it to my HD for running it off. But I installed it on my SSD where my Windows 7 Ultimate is which made it much more difficult to move but I keep getting "You need permission from "1. SYSTEM, 2. Thermaltake" to do this" Thermaltake is my computer name. So I can change it in "properties>security>Premittions/Owner" settings and make it work but it's a pain the the @. Why does it do this? It normally doesn't on other computers. Is there a easy "Make current user a god" button to make me have 100% control over everything. I'm the only user and it was default Administrator so...

I was trying to move a program file from C:\Program Files\AdobeReader > A:\HarddrivePrograms\*HERE* when it came up. It's not a huge issue but wondering if there is a fix.

Thanks!

Disable User Account Controlls.

As for fans, CFM. (cubic feet per minute) of total exhaust should be about equal to CFM intake.
