if you have the air from inside your case blowing through the rad, youll get all the heat from your PSU and mobo going to your CPU and video card.

honestly the difference may only be 3-5 degrees, hell maybe less... but at the simplicity of turning your fans around, its an effort worth doing smile.gif

also not to mention, heat rises by nature, so youll wanna assist it in its natural path, blow air up.



you may wanna get some dust filters though if your intake is gonna be on the bottom of your case.

I have fan filters on every single fan on my case, but my house in general gets super dusty so there's still some dust that gets sucked in.

And I don't quite understand your point about the heat going into my PSU and mobo. The air is going down through the bottom of the case, so no components are being touched by any hot air. Also, my PSU at the top is intaking cool air from the top (not sure if that's relevant).

I know heat rises naturally, but that's with no external influences. If there's airflow in the case then the air should follow that current right?

well first off im not concerned about the heat touching your mobo and PSU
i mean the heat that is radiated FROM your mobo and psu will touch your radiator (for your water cooling loop)
you want the air from the outside of your case which has not been heated by your mobo and psu to go through your radiator first, and THEN into your case.


and yes the airflow will force the heat down.. but its still naturaly going to want to rise up. So you might as well push it in the way it wants to go.

Well my PSU intakes from the top and exhausts out the back, so it's not really affected by either fan orientation unless I were to add a top exhaust.

So if I were to flip the fans and do a pull orientation, I should take out the front intake right? Because it'd be pretty useless at that point.

I suppose if it comes down to it, I could always try both ways and see which one yields better results.

For some reason I never saw this post. You make a really good point though. Thanks for pointing that out!

I agree with the others.. change the fans to pull.. draw in cold air from from bottom to cool your radiator more efficiently.. this will also help to push any radiant heat away from your components and out the top.

if you are worried about dust, use some stockings between the bottom of your case and the radiator, or even better put it outside the bottom of your case so it makes cleaning a breeze.

and possibly turn your psu the other way so it draws the air from the inside of the case and spits it out.

I'm not sure if I mentioned this earlier, but I have fan filters all along the bottom of my case (basically everywhere actually). My room (and rest of house) just gets really dusty.

And do you think flipping my PSU around is a good idea? It would go along with the rest of my airflow (since I'm now doing pull), but I thought it was better to intake cool air rather than exhaust warm air.

It will be fine, the PSU is guaranteed by Corsair to deliver 650w @ 50 degrees C.

the only thing that is likely to happen is the fan picks up a little bit of speed.

Ok cool thanks I'll fix that too.
