Thanks! I like the looks and features on it better anyways, so that helps my decision.

Non-factor anyways, PC is on the top of a wire shelf unit. nothing but air under it for 3 feet.

Thats good so id set the rads to exhaust and if you can have a intake fan for the top and bottom rad to get the best temps maybe even use the rear fan as a intake sence the rads will be exhausting the air.

and the weekend just got so much more fun!



I will have 2 140mm intakes on the front. Have not decided yet whether I will use the 120 from the rear, but if not I could have another 140mm intake there....really thinking my 480s would like the extra rad though....

cool lol watercooling does take a while the first time way i setup mine is i got a rx360 in the top set to exhasut and i got a 120mm fan in the top bay intaking air for it and on the bottom i have a rx240 exhausting and i have a bottom 120mm fan intaking air for it so both have cool air i have long feet on the bottom of my case.

I've got my RX360 in the roof of my Switch 810 exhausting and my RX240 in the bottom as Intake, not sure its making a huge difference to temps, I guess it depends on how much warmer the air is coming out of it. I also have two 140mm fans in the front of my Switch pulling fresh air in, so I guess its mixing with the rad exhaust air and helping.

The way I see it is if you have both rads exhausting you'll have a lot of fans exhausting and very few as Intake, which means air will be pulled in from every nook and cranny that air can be pulled through pulling unwanted dust into your case, as in you'll have negative air pressure in your case.

I realise that fresh air is the best possible way to go, however I don't see having the bottom rad as intake is going to impact temps too much, I really should try get a temp sensor in there to measure the air temp that hits the RX360 rad and compare it to my rooms ambient temp. I'm just not sure theres enough of a difference to worry about, I've already got another RX120 to throw in the front to replace an 140mm front fan wink.gif

Kinda same rad composition you have (360 on top and 240 bottom) upper fans exhausting air and bottom rad intaking air (way better temps than using bottom rad exhausting air)

here some pics (top rad only have 2 of 3 fans 2300 rpm though, the 3rd fan is imposible to fit because of the psu, there was a time that i used 3 fans on top but in the extermal top of the case, look pretty cool also)

cpu temps on load 43c
gpu temps on load 45c
Room tem: 19/20c
more pics and screenshoot of the temps if you want it later when i get home
i have to say that all 5 rads fans are using fans controller which let me set them at min rpms (1300) or highest rpm (2300) and for the temps i wrote above all fans were a 1300 rpm, i guess i would get lower temps at 2300 rpm but i dont like the noise

So you tried it with lower res exhaust and intake so the way better temps are your experience? Interesting...I am considering flipping the bottom fans over now. I also forgot to take into account the AC unit that is blowing on the bottom of the rig....switching to intake will take better advantage of the cold air. (AC unit is to keep the office temps down since I have my dedicated folding rig on the same shelf as this one).

Anywho, for those who have had such great input helping out with this, I have spent a very fun day with the rig, so easy to work in such a big case, lol. Updated view of the rig:

yes, better temps using the botton rad intaking air thumb.gif

I've basically always ran with bottom as intake, top as exhaust.

However, my temps are still pretty poor. This is due to the fact that this old processor has a massive heat output. Not much i can do about that, short of undoing my overclock that is.

seems to be working better for me too, switched the bottom rad to intake last night and dropped temps some.

As for the hot processor, I feel ya, this Bloomfield loves running hot but i am working on keeping the GPUs from heating it up even more. I don't even bring up what my actual temps are that I am feeling good about because I feel embarrassed among all the SB users, lol
