Best air flow setup On a tj11 Watercooled? Need some advice 10+C Diffrence between Side pannels On and Off!

Okay.

The setup is a 360 rad on one side and a 480 on the other in the bottom compartment of a tj11.

Which one would you recommend as intake and which as exhaust?


Side 1 360+psu
Side 2 480.

Thanks!

Well the PSU is always going to be on exhaust. Ideally you would want ALL rads on intake, but that isn't always an option.

Throw up some pics of your case as it is right now, as it will have a lot to do with how the air flows through your case.

Here is the case it's apart now but it's the same case


Here's whats up.

Red = Exhaust

Blue = Intake


Behind the bottom red arrows would be 3 blue intake from a 360.


Now I have several options.

Make both bottom rads intake, however heat has no where to go except the small slits upwards.

Make both bottom rads Exhaust

Make 1 intake or the other exhaust.


The two Mid intake fans are 180MM And draw there air from a Mid area Cutout so it's cool air. all other fans are 120mm.


There's a rad mounted in the Drive bay with push pull exhaust.

The issue here is that the Tj11 bottom compartment is sealed off (except for 2 slits for wires) from the top so they don't share any airflow.


The top arrow is a 120Rad with push pull exhaust

The bottom red arrows indicate a 480mm Exhaust setup.



Using AX480,AX360,Ax240,Ax120 push pull

Without the side panels CPU is like 45C under load (gaming etc)

GPU's are 4X titans hover around 36-38C.


With side panels closed CPU is 55C, GPU's hit 50C.

There's a massive difference so I'm trying to figure out the best airflow situation and so far not having much luck.

Front of case is using mesh cover so fans can exhaust.
