Corsair 350D Owners Club - Page 495

i3770K @ 4.4Ghz +Prolimatech Megahalems with Noctua 120mm
32GB DDR3 Corsair 1600Mhz
Samsung 850 EVO 500GB
asus blu-ray drive
coolermaster 700watt
Dell u2711

I recently bought an MSI R390X Gaming 8GB.
The temperatures on gaming are pretty high, about 90-94 oC (playing rise of the tomb raider max settings 1440p) and 100% the GPU fans.

when i open the side panel the temperature of the card lowers, about 76-79 oC.
The case fans are running at full speed.

My next step is to remove the stock fans, the HDD cage and and the 2 slots of the 2.5'' cage, and install 2 x Corsair AF140mm in the front, and a corsair SP120 in the back.

what do you think?? Will it have a difference ? what else can I do to improve the card temperature.

System temperature is ok, around 26-28 (max 30)

Thank you in advance.

That is in no way a fault of the case. There's something wrong with your 390x, I'd start with taking the cooler off the gpu and trying new thermal paste first.

Also you may not want to to have AF series fans as intake. AF is just for directional air movement and better for exhaust.

Here's my 350d, bit of a resurrection with this case here as it used to be sitting on a shelf housing a cheap pc and doing nothing but add to my power bill. I needed a larger case than my 250d for an upgrade so i repurposed this case sincei was too cheap to buy a new one. My only gripe is i wish it had more hdd space. I think im going to buy an extra cage or two from corsair and mount them in myself stacked. Anyone else done this yet?

anyways here it is.

Well with the corsair 350d and a top mounted h105 rad with the asus Maximus rog viii it blocks the 8pin cpu power cable completely.. Looks like I'm going to have to cut off the corner of the fan..... I guess you could mount the h105 in the front but I'm not going to

Just a heads up for anyone using these parts!

Did some fan testing and the results were surprising. I've got two AIOS, both exhausting out of the top and rear, like in the picture below.



The rear 120 rad I'm running now in push+pull and I've gotten rid of one of the hdds, so they aren't blocking any airflow. At the front I've got x2 af140s and removing the front panel reduces my gpu temps by 5-6c and cpu temps by 1-2c. Removing the front dust filter has no change in temps.

I got curious and turned off the front fans entirely and with the front panel back on, there was no change in gpu and cpu temps at all, compared to front panel + fans on. The airflow fans are doing absolutely nothing in my config. Wonder if some static pressure fans will drop the temps. My hdd, sdd and mobo are running at the same old normal temps as well.

To summarize, front panel off + af fans = good airflow and temps. Front panel on + front af fans on or off, same temps.
All of my temps stated are during witcher 3 gameplay at 100% gpu load and around 50% cpu load.

AF is not good for intake, have to get AP
