Exhaust front? - Page 2

post #11 of 14
With your case setup, you can easily swap to front exhaust. Top-mounted PSU is great, plus you have two full-size fans in the front to move things along. I'm not sure it would be necessary to modify the front in any way, but if it adds value to you in some way then have at it!

Reverse flow is probably your best option.

I can see why you are having problems. 5 pounds of kit in a 3 pound box comes to mind. redface.gif

Ideally you want more open area than fan area into fan and out of fan. Visualize a 120mm fan having at least 120mm diameter tube of air coming to it and going away from it. wink.gif

*Nice big radiator, but half of the fans to it are blocked by case. Turning fans around does not solve that problem, but it would dump heated air from radiator out of case instead of into case. The down side is you will be drawing whatever heat is inside of case into radiator... which will probably cool better than what you have now.
*So much in case there is no room for air to flow... so of course with cover on it runs hot.

All that being said I do like what you are doing. Shows a lot of thought and planning to get everything to fit and work. thumb.gif

Hmmm... we have very similar builds except yours seems to be alot neater than mine!!!

On my SG05, I have quite a thin rad (an alphacool ST30) on the front with 2x Gentle Typhoon AP-15s in push/pull, as an intake.

The airflow inside the case is ridiculous, way better than I expected. I prefer intake on our SG05s because it's cooling the motherboard components down, and the PSU is exhaust.

In fact my temperatures are so good that I'm thinking of taking the pull AP-15 off.

I don't have the CD drive, and I only have an SSD with 1x 5400rpm 2.5" HDD, but most of the heat must be coming from my rad?

If you are getting enough intake but need an exhaust, would this be an option?

Cheers,

DB

tongue.gif well i thought making a switch in the exhaust would be the easiest solution for now since taking it appart is just a pain >_<. but hmm i think i may try making a new front piece, just need to figure out the thermal limitations of acrylic

hah, last i checked it weighted like ... i think 17lbs? somewhere around that biggrin.gif but just need to figure a solution for this. I think i may though make a new front piece since like you said a portion of it is covered so air cant be directly going out . redface.gif Altough inside i think the hottest part was the metal fitting coming out of the cpu.

tongue.gif thought this would be a fun project after having a 800D, 600t and such for awhile. so far im on my .. 3-4th month of building and about 9th month of planning >__>

biggrin.gif initially when i was doing air cooling and a h50 i was really surprised on how cool the system was overall but also did find that the psu exhaust does make the case much cooler. just wish i could move the cable to the other side the psu to do that *sighh** . Really nice build you got smile.gif
