Don't even use a fan in 1. It pushes in and 3 pulls it out.
Put fan from 1 in 6 as intake.
Remove all unused PCI slot covers.

Oh, I see. so fan 1 is a bit of a wasted spot then. And you don't think those Dust Filter PCI Covers are any good either? I also just realised (from someone telling me) that the fans on the Sapphire Tri-X are intake towards the card rather than exaust into the case so alot of what I said seems really dumb tongue.gif

Absolutely pointless unless you really have lots of negative airflow to begin with.
Which card actually intakes towards the card? They all exhaust to the case aside from the blower types which exhaust to the rear.

What Dave said. We want your case to push air out the PCI slots.

Using my poorly created JPEG as an example, I initially thought the card was doing what's on the orange arrow which is the primary graphics card pushing pushing hot air out onto the second card and the second card pushing hot air out onto the PSU, but now that I look at it it looks to me like the fans are the other way up and doing what the blue arrow shows isn't it? each card pushing air towards it's own heat sink?

Either way, that's the graphics card i am using, if there is something different I should do with it please let me know if you like tongue.gif

They are indeed pulling air in.
Basic rule of thumb is the side of fan with no braces is intake and the side with braces to hold motor in middle is exhaust.

You may have a problem getting cool air to the top GPU. The more space between them the better.

The R9 290 doesn't use a crossfire bridge at all and does everything through the PCI slot, which means on this motherboard I can do the cards in x8/x8 or x16/x4 I think, Surely I'm better with the x8/x8 or does my usage make a difference?

I game at 5760x1080 (Eyefinity) when I'm not recording anything and the game allows it,
I game whilst recording (FRAPS) and Simultaneously Live Stream to Twitch TV (using Xsplit Free version and DXTORY) at 1920x1080
I render videos from my gaming to my youtube channel (Adobe Premiere Pro) using h.264

EDIT: seems to make a diffrence tongue.gif http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/pci-express-scaling-p67-chipset-gaming-performance,review-32164-10.html

EDIT2: built the PC, ran into some snags but they aren't airflow related as the cooling was great (my room gets colder with the PC on instead of hotter!) I'll start a new thread for my problems. Thanks again for all the airflow advice everyone smile.gif

Couldn't find an appropriate place to ask my questions even though i really wanted to ask on these forums but I'll be damned if I'll break the rules and post in the wrong place. If anyone does happen to have a toms account (sorry!) my thread is over here http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/answers/id-2040745/questions-backups-bios.html tongue.gif

@ all

I'm looking for a 92mm fans and I found these fans at our local surplus shop:

ADDA AD0912HS-A76GL (3-Pin)
ADDA AD0912UX-A7BGL-ZD1 (4-Pin)
AVC DS09225R12HP039
Delta Electronics AUB0912VH-SP16
Foxconn PV902512HSPF 7A
Foxconn PV902512PSPF 0H
Nidec BETA V TA350DC E34404-58
NMB Minebea 3610RL-04W-S66 (4-Pin)
Sunon KD1209PTB2
---
NMB 3615KL-04W-B59
Nidec BETA V TA350DC M34789-57INV
Nidec BETA V TA350DC M34789-57C04


Any good fan with these choices? Going to use it for exhaust in a small case. They are all terminated with either 3 or 4 pin but im not sure if PWM function works with those 4pin fans. The only "branded" 92mm fans that are available locally are deepcool (not UF sadly), Zalman ZM-F2, and noctua fans.

I also have a 92mmx38mm san ace fans, forgot the actual model though and it is using 4 pin on a 5 socket connector

here is the pic that i uploaded few months ago: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
75d2396c_1.jpeg

i posted it here since Dave's recommended fans are all server-type fans biggrin.gif

EDIT: more fan models

EDIT: what about the others? any other decent fan on the list? might as well grab one or two more since they are only $2 a pop biggrin.gif
