Edit: I was way to tired to properly answer/read your question. There is a small block of plastic that sits in the bottom of the top cooler that prevents water from flowing out the rear fan hole. I forgot to take pictures of it, but everyone that was scared by water potentially flowing down the back of the computer, that's been fixed. Although it wasn't an issue before, it's better safe than sorry as it was VERY close to flowing over. As for preventing moisture from coming out the back, that's kind of the point of an evaporative cooler. I'm removing water vapor as much as possible. The water droplets that are falling near the exhaust fan however, are too heavy to get sucked out by the fan at the current limits I have set on the fan.
Both the intake and exhaust fans on the coolers are run from the same PWM signal off the Aquaero. I have them capped at 75% which is where the noise is bearable and also the point where I know the exhaust fan is not removing water (It makes a noise like a mosquito hitting a bug zapper whenever a water droplet hits the blades). The intake fan actually surprised me. Even if water is covering the baffle, the intake fan is still able to completely clear out all water and force air in there. If the water level gets about 1/2" above the edge of the baffle though, the fan's not strong enough to move that though. But anyways, I thought that was interesting.Edited by InitialDriveGTR - 8/13/12 at 4:09am
