Pull-config on a stock fan?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have an old C2D E6600 I put in an Ultra Microfly MX6 case under a stock intel cooler. Temps are kind of crap, with 36 idle and pushes 60 load, I had to take all the panels off and point three 80mm fans into the case from various angles just to get it below 50 while folding.

Question is: I have a 120mm fan on the back right above the CPU cooler, if I were to just flip the fan on the cooler so it blows the hot air up, and the 120 sucks it right out of the case, shouldn't that improve performance of the cooler? Right now all I know is i it pushing hot air against the board, and across the passive NB heatsink, not to mention cooking my ram >.>

Anyone tested something like this? Long term negative effects? In theory this seems like it would would well and even be easier to clean, but if that were the case these coolers would come with their fans on that way from the factory sooo...hm?




Option 2 is a Spire Diamondcool ii I found somewhere. Has a whole lot of copper , but I've never used it so I don't know if it is any good. Figured I'd ask before I install, which is quite the ordeal on a microfly case.

This will be a stock-speed secondary gaming system, but will be folding when not gaming so high CPU load at all times

Thanks!

It doesn't sound like you have much to lose in the way of cooling performance getting worse. I run the fans in my NAS in a similar fashion so hot air doesn't blow over all the disks. Setup and report back with results I think it will make a marginal difference but most importantly your other components will be spared all that extra heat.
