New gaming PC - need advice on fan setup and which fans at all ! - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Thread Starter 
ok will take a look at these...

btw my Mpower has total of 5x 4pin headers so if that you be the case, which 5 fans would you include in my setup incl. ones on CPU cooler ?

I was thinking 2 front intakes, 1 rear exhaust and 2 on the NH-D 14 ?

Any other ideas ?

Just because the fans headers on motherboard are 4pin does not mean they are PWM. It is common for motherboards to have 4pin fan headers that are not PWM. wink.gif

CPU is only part of heat in your system. GPU produces as much or more heat so needs cooling as well. That is why I suggest 2x front and 1x bottom intakes.

this is how MY setup looks now:



I will try to make something like that for my friend but I will use PWM fans for him as advised

Nice clean build. thumb.gif

No GPU? lmaosmiley.gif Assume you are using your GTX 690. biggrin.gif

Might want to re-read my suggestions in post 8. Your top front fan is pulling cool air right out the top and possibly stealing it from D14 intake.

With today's high powered hot GPUs we no longer want to move cool air from bottom/fron to top/back because that moves the heat from GPU up to CPU. It is better to move front to back by using PCI slots as exhaust. Often a side fan as intake or exhaust... can't say which will work best for you... helps too.
