[Solved] FD Array R2 - NAS Case -- Postive/Negativ flow?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello Overclock.

I have bought this case, but i'm a bit confused about my flow in it? The main problem is I don't know how I make the best flow out of what i got.
I have a "Noctua NF-A14 ULN 140mm" in the front as intake, my CPU is a Noctua NH-L9i which is as "intake?" also.
The problem is the PSU is as outtake, but i'm afraid that would make a negative airflow?

If you guys look here and imagine my CPU-cooler instead, u can see there isn't much space & wouldn't that make a negative airflow?

more fans blowing in is fine as long as it has somewhere exit. i would remove the vented slot blanks in the back of the case to let it breathe more.

Found out of that, by changing the PSU fan to intake my CPU got around 69 degress, changing it to outtake (which I think would give the negative airflow) made my CPU 41 degress.
So im gonna stick with that. smile.gif

Thanks for your opinion. smile.gif
