Rosewill Thor V2 (haven't seen a thread in here about aircooling it)

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Just want to throw some ideas around for fanning off this case. Planning on Red White and Blue on the front. All other fans will stay black. I'll leave ALL stock fans where they are. Just adding the bottom fan and the two front blue and white fans.

Yeah, that would be the standard way to do it. (front/bottom intake and back/top exhaust)

And yes you definately should have more than enough airflow for a 'normal' system.

So the fans on the side panel. Is 1x230 enough or should i swap it for 4x140s? or do both?

Enough for what? I have 0 fans in the side panel and it's enough smile.gif

I guess I'm just trying to over do it. Need to order a cpu heatsink first anyways.

Could i barrow this thread?, Is rosewill good cases for water-cooling?

I have been researching that as well. There is a thread I made in the water cooling section. Radiator placement is almost limited to external without being clever. But I would say yes, It it great for watercooling.

Yes, usually one exhaust/one intake fan or two exhaust fans are enough for pretty much every single GPU system unless you really want to push your overclock hard.
More airflow is always better though, obviously. So it boils down to finding the right perosnal compromise between airflow and noise.

Well the good news is noise doesn't bother me at all, I'm always playing my bass guitar over the noise of it already. It's not exactly quiet now.

I'd first look at what kind of temps you get before investing more money into fans that may not be needed. Unless spending money doesnt bother you neither smile.gif
