Cooling config for 4U case.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So I have a 4U server case, and I would like the people of OCN to comment on the cooling config of this build. Note that there won't be a GPU in any of the slots in the initial build. Further down the road I would like to put a GPU.

Config Notes:
-PSU will have 120mm fan pulling about 65-75CFM from the interior of the case exhausting it out.
-Intake will have a Thermaltake Blue Eye VR fan pulling in a whopping 97.5 CFM at max. (Can be controlled with a external VR)
-Rear exhaust will be a Thermaltake 60mm fan push about 30.5 CFM.
-80mm fan will hang from the crossbar of the case right above the stock heatsink pushing air over the heat sinks fan.

Will be upgrading the heatsink later down the road, but just want to see if this set up is still a stable cooling config. Thanks! thumb.gif

For stock clocks.... just the stock HSF should be fine.

So even with something like a Hyper 101 would do? It's rated at 95W, also is it okay to have a tower heatsink when there's not very many vent spots? As you can see the back has very limited vents above the I/O shield. Would also having a PSU with a 120mm intake fan also help cooling since it's inbetween the heat sink and the I/O?
