whistle.gif You are looking too closely. buttkick.gif
Indeed it is. Even with 3x intakes the Arctic F120 TC fans on GPU were pulling air in through the open PCI slots. thumb.gif

Edit:
That R4 also has a GPU PWM splitter sending PWM signal to bottom fan for speed control.

GPU = VTX3D Radeon HD 7950 X-Edition V3
Cover removed w/2x Arctic F12 TC Case Fan
Was 70c now 50-60c, ultra settings, 60fps unless particularly detailed cut scenes

The Arctic F12 TC fans were 'temporary' and planned to order a couple good PWM fans to replace them with. They work so well they have become permanent. biggrin.gif.

First off all congrats on the great guide, this inspired me to do some modding (light one) my temps improved (less 4cº) here are some pics:

I just used what i had no need for new fans when i got a box full of them thumb.gif

Using the info here i have really changed the way I build a PC. I no longer fill every fan hole. In my cases I usually just put the front intakes and bottom intakes if I can with a, AiO 120 unit on the rear. The positive airflow does an amazing job at keeping the system cool. The only case I have used a top fan in is the Mercury S3 where i have a single 140mm fan, as intake, blowing down onto the motherboard and video card.

For those interested in Demciflex filters. End an email to the company direct, if they do not have a filter already to fit your needs they will make one. If you case is not one they have the measurements on they would love for you to give them the measurements so they can have them in the future. They are good people and make a great product.

Nice. Lesson to learn is not to need to fill every damn hole with a fan, it's just going to make your rig louder and you probably won't need it ... unless you have a very high heat output system thumb.gif

That's good advice there about the DeMCiFlex filters
