Need an Expert Opinion On what direction i should Install My Fans in the Caslabs TH10 Extended Pedestal!

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hello,

This question is geared towards those that have the Caselabs Extended Pedstal
I could not find a category in this forum that deals specifically with CASELABS CASE Owners
I posted a thread requesting help with how i should construct my loops in the Pedestal and got NO REPLIES
LINK: http://www.overclock.net/t/1331916/what-is-the-best-way-to-construct-a-loop-with-2-480-rads-in-the-caselabs-extended-pedestal

Now i need help with a more important question.

I will be doing push pull on 2 480 rads

I cant decide whether i should point the fans to direct airflow into the pedestal or point them to direct airflow out of it.

I have 3 140mm fans installed on the Pedestal Casing itself. One in front blowing air into the pedestal, and 2 fans in the back blowing air out of the bedestal like an exaust.

I know that out of the 2 options i have with the Rads, Blow air in, or out, one of them is the better choice according to my current setup.

I need you guys expert opinion on the best method.

I will post pictures of it later since its late at night and i have to go to bed.

Okay here are the PICTURES







I thought that what i explained in the thread was crystal clear, but i guess not.

Please help!

i cannot continue my build untill i know which way to point my fans.

PLEASE

I'm not an expert, but it depends on the conditions. Have cats/dust? Are they going to be filtered? You want balanced pressure (in=out) in a best case scenario. I'd say one side in, the other side out.

If you don't like that, both sides pointing in if you have a lack of dust and/or filters. Cool air outside pushes out warm air inside.


Wait a sec...is this not a case? Just an...oh. It goes underneath. I'd say both pushing out, in that case, since there aren't any components between them.

As for loop layout, can we have some diagram of what it currently is? Generally, keep tubing lengths as short as possible, with the overkill rig that you have I'd say res -> pumps -> bottom rads -> graphics -> rad -> cpu -> mobo -> res, but that's just me.

OK. So the 3 blue bladed fans I would have set to bring air into the part of the pedastal with the fans on the Rads exhausting out. I see 1 up front and 2 in the back. This way the 3 blues are bringing fresh cool air in and you are then exhausting the air through the rads and out.

This is what makes sense to me. But other people are saying to have both rad fans pointing inward.

Why? i dont know

I just want to know which is the best method. I do have Fan filters to do it that way. Just someone, please tell me The Recommended setup.

I dont want to have to do it one way, and then spend a week taking everything apart to do it the other way.

Please

I understand your hesitation. Taking your rig apart and changing fan direction sucks. I'm no expert, but I had the same question for my rig when I was building it. In all the examples I could find, people were having better temps pulling fresh air in to their case rather than pushing out. That said, your setup with the pedestal is far different since there will be a significant physical separation between your equipment and your rads. I would guess that either way would work fine and that the temperature difference would only be a few degrees at most. thumb.gif Good luck!

Have all the fans intaking except the 2 at the back.
Positive pressure is your friend.

Quick question,

where did you get those neat fittings? the ones that are angled and you can put one on top of the other
