Xigmatek Elysium Optimum Airflow for SLI

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I am thinking about purchasing the Xigmatek Elysium case for a beginners guide into water cooling where I will initially have a CPU only loop but gradually add my GPUs into it. I am using the XSPC RX360 D5 Water Cooling kit which I will mount the radiator into the roof of the case in push/pull configuration.The GPUs I will be using are the Gigabyte GTX 670 OC in SLI, and here is a quick look at where the fans are for the case pre installed. http://www.xigmatek.com/product.php?productid=122&type=specification.

What I am worried about is with these Graphics Cards, the hot air will remain in the case if I am not mistaken so the side fan will naturally be exhaust. Traditionally, the rear and the top radiator exhausts air out of the case and leaves the front fans to do intake. Is there a more optimum setup for the fans in this situation? I don't wish to purchase any additional fans for the time being.

All you need to do is set the side-fan to intake instead of exhaust.
It will blow cold air onto your GPU's to utilize.

I ran two internally-exhausting GTX460's in SLi this way.

Thank you for your response. So the intake side fan should push the air to the top exhaust fan and/or the rear exhaust fan if I am not mistaken?

If they are set to exhaust yes.
Whilst you have your GPU's on air cooling an intake on the side and front, and exhaust on the back and top would be the best setup.
When they go under water, I would change the Side fan to exhaust, and the radiator to intake (colder air outside of the case!)
