Like the H440 more than EP but airflow is killing me

(Before)




Temps went up on CPU by 10C (now i have fans up to 1700, in EP it was 1400) and GPU is now around 10C more :/

are your fans intake or extract? It has been suggested that using them in extract mode allows the hot air to reenter the case through all the openings due to the high-static pressure of the fans blowing directly into the sound dampening material. Using both as intake will resolve that issue.

I have two ideas to improve airflow when using front fans.
1. Remove this mesh:

2. Block these empty holes and the fans will suck more cool air than recycled case air:


Same idea if you want to use top exhaust (and they wont push warm air back to case) smile.gif more wondering: http://forums.overclockers.co.uk/showthread.php?t=18588794

It would be nice if we could get an air-cooled user to produce some empirical data showing the differences between all the possible configurations. By empirical I mean a 10 minute baseline with OCCT or IBT, then change the fans, run again and repeat as necessary for gpu.

So..

Front 3 120 intake

Top 3 120 intake

Back exhaust

Or

Front 2 120 intake

Top 3 120 exhaust

Back intake


I believe those are the best 2 setups

Considering that I accidentally oriented my Hyper 212 EVO horizontally, and it has a fan pushing air upwards, I suppose I'll go with the latter of your two suggestions.

I'm on air. So far I've only tried two setups,
#1
3x120 stock intake front
2x120 exhaust top (top front blocked off)
140 stock exhaust rear

And now this
#2
3x120 stock intake front
2x120 intake top (top front blocked off)
140 stock exhaust rear

I use a CM hyper n520 on a 3570k@4.5
My cards in my sli setup both haveb blowers.
As far as temps, I haven't seen any better improvement but maybe a degree or two. I'll get some screenshots of temps with both later but on p95 I didn't break 75 on average its around mid 30s

Thanks, I know the feeling as I'm still waiting on a few parts.

Thanks BlockLife.

I was actually now thinking, that I keep the rear as exhaust, keep the three stock fans on intake up front, but put my h90 on the first of the top 140mm slot closer to the rear on intake and then the other top 140mm on intake as well.

That should be good. I will try this but if it doesn't work I might just put the h90 on the rear and get 3 120mm for the top and run them all on intake.

I will post pics when I get my gfx cards in to see what you all think of my theme smile.gif

This is my current setup. With an ambient room temperature of at least 23°C, I was at ~35°C while idling (monitored by SpeedFan) and I never went above 50°C (monitored by SpeedFan) under full load with Prime at the stock FX 6300 speeds.

I'm going to be changing the top 120mm fans all to exhaust, with the front three 120mm fans and rear 140mm fan as intake. I'll record those results as well.
