Is this flow a good idea?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Gonna start building my computer this coming Monday. Been thinking about how I'd set up the air flow in the case. Here's my specs:

CASE: NZXT Tempest 210
MOBO: Asus P8Z77-V LK Intel Z77 DDR3
COOLER: Corsair H60
CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4Ghz (Ivy Bridge)
RAM: Corsair Vengeance Black 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1600 MHz (PC3 12800)
SSD: Samsung 840 Pro 128GB
GPU: MSI N760GTX 2GB
HDD: Western Digital Blue 1TB
PSU: Rosewill Capstone 450w 80+ Gold (Modular)

Fans I'm going to be use is a Scythe Gentle Typhoon AP-14 as intake for the H60 radiator and a TY-147 as a top exhaust fan.

Here's a specific picture of what I have in mind for my setup:

Same case but obviously different guts.

Is this alright? Or is there a smarter way? Apologies if this in the wrong section.

It should be no problem using the H60 with an intake. You'll likely get better performance with it that way anyway. thumb.gif

However, what do you have planned for any intake fans at the front/bottom of the case? I ask because with the arrangement shown above there's nothing getting cool air to your GPU.

Thanks the for fast response. smile.gif

As for the front and bottom of the case... headscratch.gif I think I was gonna leave those unoccupied... lol. The bottom isn't really aiming at the GPU so it looked pointless.

Yeah I'd recommend getting some cooling up front. It looks like the case supports 2x 120mm fans up front which will be lots. Even a single 120mm up front will nicely help. Another plus to the extra intakes is it will give the case "positive pressure" which will cut down on the dust a lot. smile.gif

Alright, thanks for the advice. I'm going to add another TY-147 for front intake. Edit: Forgot that the TY-147 won't fit for the front cause it's the size of a 140mm fan but has 120mm mounting screw holes. Means I have to find another fan.
