350D Water Cooling Fan Placement Questions

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm planning on using two 240mm radiators for an i5-3670k (likely overclocked) and a GTX 780 in a single custom water cooling loop. I'll be using Noctua's NF-P12 120mm fans on both radiators.

Would be better to use both sets of radiator fans as intakes or the front as an intake and the top as an exhaust? I want to make sure the motherboard is getting adequate cooling as everything else will be under water. I'm also not sure how much heat the front intake would dump into the case and if that would affect temps if the other radiator is drawing air from inside the case.

I assume with four 120mm intake fans there's no need for an exhaust fan.

For reference the 350D has 2x120mm fan placement spots on the front, 2x120mm (or 2x140mm) on the top, and 1x120mm fan on the rear.

Yes heat rises so the front 240 will intake and the top 240 will exhaust! that should give you good temps and static flow!!!
good luck to you my friend I hope this helped you!
