Yeah my H100 was quiet enough with decent fans.

Hey All--
new to this site and a first time builder.
3570k with closed loop asetek 510
ASrock z77e-itx\
8gb corsair vengance
256gb sandisk ssd
msi7950
cx600

All put into a BLACK Bitfenix Prodigy. I absolutely love my rig. Just had a quick question, probably a noobish/obvious question:

I added a 200mm front intake fan, I have a 120mm exhaust attached to my liquid cooler.
My question is I have an extra 120mm fan that I put on the top as exhaust(right above were the mobo is), i plan on buying another 120mm or a Corsair h100 and putting it on top.

Should my existing 120mm on top be set as exhaust or should I have it as more intake?
Also, when i get another 120mm on top should I set both of them to intake, both to exhaust, or intake&exhaust?

I typically set fans in the front and bottom of my cases as intake, and top and rear fans as exhaust. If your radiator is installed on the top, it will be beneficial to have it as exhaust, especially since heat naturally rises. It's harder to exhaust hot air down out the bottom of the case than it is from the top.

The corsair install guide says to set the fans to intake cold air from the top but i know others here have set them to exhaust. Try both and see what results you get.

Just because we said it wasn't bigger, doesn't mean we aren't . . . complete the sentence? smile.gif

If anything I want a smaller Prodigy! For those guys that want to stay as small as possible without using watercooling... could be called the Prodigy Air tongue.gif

A bigger one that takes SLI mobos would be great too though. Hell, one the same size as the existing one would be possible.

I think splitting the next gen into mini and same size with better mobo compatibility would be great.

The use of the fans as intakes will result in cooler CPU temps, usually around 2C to 3C but defeat part of the purpose of the liquid cooler, the evacuation of the heat from the case completely.

Traditional tower coolers blow the heat but do not actually evacuate it, relying on case fans to remove the PC heat. The liquid cooler is designed to make sure the heat completely leaves the case and thus actually cools the case interior slightly as well.

Corsair is the only marketer of these coolers that I have seen making this suggestions, all others say to use them as exhaust.
