I'd be more worried that the negative pressure is sucking hot GPU air into the CPU area. I thought the whole design of the SG08 is that the massive airflow compartmentalises the CPU from being affected by GPU temps, something that they learned from after the SG05.

When I switched to another fan I was planning on using the same configuration as the case is normally built for IE using the top fan as an exhaust. I have played a few hours of BF3 on the rig without GPU, CPU or mainboard showing any signs of heating up more than expected. I am not planing on overklocking the system so I guess for this configuration with an exhaust fan is working. This may change if the dust issue becomes a problem altough the case sits next to the TV a few feets up from the floor.

If we talk more in generall about this case, would a setup of using the top fan as an intake fan be more effecient and generate a cooler case? I guess the issues with dust would be solved when creating positive air presure inside the case.

In both setups, would it be benifitial to try to limit the amount of hot air that can move from the GPU area to the CPU area?

If you're happy with temps as they are, that's fine. I mentioned it above because there is an article on Silverstone's site which explains why the air penetrator fan works well in the design of the SG07. There's also an article about positive pressure in general. I also understood, as I mentioned above but can't find source for it, that the positive pressure in the SG07/08 creates a buffer against the flow of the air from the GPU. Seems logical anyway.

Sorry to be a pedant smile.gif but the case is clearly designed to intake at top. That's why there's a dust filter there and you can clearly see the recommended configuration on Silverstone's website:

Wisk is offcourse correct in the fan on top is pushing air into the case creating positive air preasure. I just assumed that the fan on top was removing air from the case but as you say the filter on top wouldn't be much use if it was blowing air out of the case.

This changes quite a few things. When I have some spare time I will run some tests on the case with the current config and then move the orientation of the fan and see how much it changes.

@ coss79

Could you please try to rotate the Phanteks heatsink 90 degrees clockwise so that the heat pipes are facing the gpu, or just measure it as accurate as possible so you don't have to go through all the hassle of remounting it.

Is there a possibility to mount it like that, or the heat pipes would be touching the backplate of the gpu?

It should look like this:


Thanks

Do what I did and replace the top fan with a Thermalright TY-140. It's a 140mm with 120mm mounting holes.


basically what i did as well but i use a noctua instead

ugh doh.gif I didn't read the entire post.

My question about the position of the Phanteks heat sink remains though.
