Fan Placement questions

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Okay I have a case I am looking to build in but it has no stock filtering so I am going to build it for positive air flow to limit the amount of filters I need to buy.,

The case supports dual 120mm fans at the front and top, a 120/140 at the rear and a possible 120 at the bottom.

I will be using a Water 2.0 Extreme for the cooler (240 radiator)

My current plan is to use the radiator at the top or front with the fans pushing through the radiator. I would then use the top/front that I did not use for the radiator for dual 120 intake, bottom 120 intake and then the 140 Exhaust.

Should I put the radiator in the front of the case or the top for it's intake?

Seriously I would have thought to see some thoughts on this.

Are there hard drive racks in the front? If so put the rad at the top, if there are not hard drive racks in the way then it really doesn't matter, and is an aesthetic choice. Always TRY to keep rads as intake for optimal performance.

For future reference put something like this in water cooling or air cooling for your own benefit. The other cooling forums don't get much attention.

top orfront depends on where your ac vent in the room is lol cieling or window

you got the only ting to advise on down which is to run intake through the radiator instead of exhaust. you could do front and use top as an exhaust though as "hot air rises"

Whats going on with your gpus? do you have monsters because then i would definitely have it on the top so the gpus would pull cool air from the front and exhaust out the back 140 that creates optimal airflow
