CPU temperature - case standing up vs case on side - Noctua D14 - Page 4

So look at my fan orientation and try setting it up like that

Maybe I wasn't a clear but I've been doing it the way I said since the beginning. I haven't changed/flipped anything...they were always directing flow toward the back of the case...haha.

I'm currently (and was always) pushing heat from the FIRST heatsink with the first fan and pulling heat from the FIRST heatsink using the middle/second fan. The SECOND heatsink only has air pushed onto it by the second/middle fan...

I'm pulling heat from the first radiator and pushing it onto the second one...correct. But the first radiator is being cooled by the first fan which is sucking in air from the middle of the case (which is cool due to case intake fans). I would have thought that this way is the best to do it? Is that wrong?

EDIT: Looking at your pictures I believe our orientation is exactly exactly the same. Your square fan intakes air pushing it onto the first radiator. Your second (circular) fan pulls air from the first radiator pushing it onto the second radiator. Mine is and always was doing the same thing.

I played with the top 2 exhaust fans. I turned them off, directed the flow inwards, turned one off and left one on and it did nothing to affect the end result (actually made it worse in some cases). I don't think this is an airflow problem because if it was then it would occur with the case laying on its side too. I think I might have to RMA the cooler...

Yeah maybe it is a faulty cooler if you have tried so many different ways

fwiw, the only two explanations that made any sense to me where...
1) contact pressure being different when horiz vs vertical
2) faulty heat pipes (after actually learning a bit about how they work)
... and of those two, the second seems more plausible given your attention to making good contact

You may be able to get the to send you out a new cooler before you send your's in. wink.gif Phanteks did that when I had a minor problem with a bottom fin sagging down a little. smile.gif
