air duct thingy on HAF X

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey all, i currently have the haf x with a gigabyte 7970 and RIVE mobo

I have a 3930k hooked up to a H100 with the rad at the top of the case

I have the H100 fans exhausting as well as the 2 x 200mm fans at the top and the back 140mm exhausting
The front 230mm and side 200mm are intake

I am using the gpu duct thingy with a 120mm fan however it doesnt cover my gpu, it sits underneath leaving a small gap for part of the 3rd fan on my gpu to draw air in

I currently have my gpu in the slot it says in my mobo manual, cant remember which and cant take any pics at the moment as i am away but if anyone knows if i can move gpu down and still use it at x 16 that would be great

If not would it be beneficial to just take out the gpu duct ?

I am home at the end of the week so will post pics to make it clearer

Cheers smile.gif

Also is that the best fan orientation ?

Another question... lol, i am using stock fans on the H100, which fans would be better? I am only using 2 as push and hoping the top 2 x 200mm will sort of act as a pull

The 1st and 3rd PCI-E slot, from top, are your x16/x8 and the 2nd and 4th are your x8 slot.


IF you can move your GPU down to the 3rd slot and still be covered by the duct, i say do it.

Ill give it a go when i get home and see if it fits, does the duct only work with blower cards ? I have been having a quick read but cant get a definite answer

I can see why it would work with them as itll help the flow towards to the back of the case but mine has 3 fans drawing air onto the board and ive read that they dissipate the heat towards the back and front of the case therefore the duct will be blowing hot air back onto the card...

It should help, but you need to evacuate the air as quickly as possible. I would recommend removing any extra PCI slot covers to expedite thepprocess.
