Yeah but I ran a 1 exhaust 2 intake setup for a long time and dust still collected where the GPU is.

Hey guys, looking for a little bit of advice for airflow on my case. My case is the Aerocool DS which is fairly new so it doesn't have a lot of people using it at the moment. I have already replaced the stock case fans as they were much more focused on silence and not airflow. My current cooling setup is as follows;

Intake:
200mm Coolermaster Megaflow (front)(non filtered at the moment)
120mm Corsair SP120 PE PWM x4 (Push/Pull on H100i)(top)(filtered)

Exhaust:
140mm Corsair AF140 (rear)

My GPU is a reference 780 so it is a blower style card. And power supply is set up the only logical way for the case (bottom intake).

All fans are run PWM off my motherboard as I can set custom profiles through the utilities (even though they are 3 pin fans, works quite well).

Here are a couple pictures of the case to get an idea of layout;







You can see in the last picture the intake air comes from the slits around the edges.

*Note, not that it matters but my case is black but you can see things in the case easier with the white. Also I have a windowed side panel on the way.

Mind you my temps are pretty good but I am always for looking ways to better them so any help is always appreciated.

Thanks!

That's a good setup mostly but take this in mind. 200mm fan that is intaking along those slits is going to be utter crap. No matter what fan it is it's not going to be good. Try swapping it for 2 120s or wait for the Jetflo 200
If you want to improve silence replace your AIO fans with CM Jetflo 120, they're significantly better than those SP120s

And because if you are using your H100i as exhaust ( You probably should ), get a filter and put one of those spare SP120s that you might have them replaced by Jetflo 120s as a intake. Trust me it's much better that way

Here's a note :
Deepcool GF140 vs Deepcool UF120
1200rpm vs 1300rpm
Both put out the same airflow behind a switch 810 front filter but the GF140 is louder than the UF120 at that RPM

Sadly the front intake only allows for the following options; 1 x 200mm, 1 x 140mm, 1 x 120mm. (edit keep in mind that all configurations would be centered) I do have 1 spare SP120 that I could run in the front as an intake. I am not sure about what to do for a dust filter up front though as I think dust would sneak in around a filtered 120mm.

My H100i actually runs very quiet and quite cool with the SP120's and I am using it as an intake as the grill top section of the case has dust filtering in it that is non removable.

Edit, here you can see the configurations:

Dust will not sneak around unless the case has negative airflow.

If that's fine with you then ok thumb.gif Wait for the Jetflo 200 is all I have to say now smile.gif

I actually went onto Aerocool's site when I was thinking.

Okay, thanks! So there is no point in replacing the 200mm Megaflow with the 120mm SP120 for the time being?

My initial resoning behind upgrading to a "better" 200mm was to keep the airflow spread out to help feed the GPU air. But my reasoning could be flawed.

For a blower style card would you still recommend removing the extra pci slot covers?

It's very hard to say. but you can try a 120mm.

It's kinda flawed because some 4U OEM servers use 92mm fans instead of 120mm fans if the heatsinks are passive. Don't ever forget this : Air goes where you push it. But we only need to ventilate the case therefore the fans on the CPU/GPU is free to intake whereever they like
No. Don't ever remove the PCI slot covers if you are using a ref. blower

For the record Dave, that config with one exhaust is correct, 4 intake-1 exhaust?

Dave, you said to flip top exhaust to intake. Only top exhaust is at the back of the top.. and it would blow air right down on the exhaust from cooler. confused.gif
What rear intake?

The explanation why it might work fine with that much intake is this video of an old case from Silverstone: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qe-2ZqmSGug. That FT01 case has two 180mm fans, one at the top and one at the front. If my math is right, one 180mm fan is actually a larger area than two 120mm fans, so that FT01 is actually pretty crazy. In that video, you see that it even works without any exhaust fan at all.

You should just try it and report back what you see!
