What voltages are you using?
post #3754 of 12452
Hello all 540 owners, I'm adding myself to the ranks soon. I just received my cube via fed-ex an hour ago. Took a nice look in n out. I have a meticulous question if anyone can answer it. I'm preparing to move my system into the cube.. Its an Asus z77 rampage e-atx liquid cooled mobo...E-ATX... Now I have a 360rad.. Will it fit with the gromets there if I have the rad in the front??? I'm using a push pull config currently,however I have new tubing and compression fittings already. My Asus mobo for the 3770k is quite large lol. Any critique and opinion would be appreciated, thus prevention of destroying the cube or non-capable attempts with my 360mm rad. Thank you!

Nice idle temps for a triple SLI. The room you sit in must be pretty chilly! I'd have to wear my coat! lol

This would give you three 120mm intakes on the front, two 140mm exhaust fans in the top, and then you will have the H90 exhaust in the rear of the case.

If you want to achieve positive air pressure in the case you will probably want to use some voltage step-down adapters or a fan controller to limit the speed of the two stock 140mm exhaust fans though.


If you think the H90 will do better in the top of the case you can use it and one 140mm exhaust in the top and another 140mm exhaust in the rear. I really don't think you will notice much of a difference either way though. The bigger difference would probably be whether it's used as an intake or an exhaust.

Thanks NaciremaDiputs for the advice!

For the bigger difference, by "it" does it refer to one of the 140mm fans to be used?

If I were to use one of them as an intake fan, will it be better than using a fan controller to achieve positive air pressure?

I've also seen some recommendations for Corsair's 120mm fans. Are there any other recommendations or is this one of the best choices?

Thanks!

3 x 120mm front intake. Rear 140mm exhaust. Top H90 intake and another 140mm intake. That's what I would do if I had an H90. Or you could go with the H90 as rear exhaust, but the I would probably have the two top 140mm as intake as well. And remember to get dust filters, silverstone sells decent 140mm ones that fit perfectly on the top and bottom.

My current setup however is 3 x 120mm front intake, 2 x 120mm bottom intake(with dust filters!!important!!), 2 x 140mm top intake and 140mm rear exhaust.

There are many great fans out there, I am not the one to make recommendations about them though.
