h100i fan set-up question

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Would this be the best way to run my fans? I'll be receiving my 6 noctuas tomorrow so I'm trying to decide how I'm going to do this.

Just going off that picture, I would say make the back one exhaust also, would create more of a natural flow. Cool air in from the front and bottom and out the top and back. Make sure to get a dust filter for that bottom fan or you're going to go through a lot of cans of compressed air.

I have a close setup to that but am blowing the bottom fan out instead of in since it's the PS fan. I'd rather blow the hottest component air out of the box instead of into it. Based on the above comment may keep the garbage flowing out as well.

I have my psu blowing air out as well, I'm just referring to fans.

Speaking from YOUR diagram, set the LEFT/REAR fan to EXHAUST, as some have mentioned. It'd create a more natural airflow.

Remember, your motherboard chipsets amongst many other stuff need cooling to a certain degree as well. wink.gif

Not to mention your H100i will vary at speed. So at max you could have neutral pressure, and positive pressure overall when the H100i's fans spin down. smile.gif

So 3 intakes via front and bottom, and 1 as case exhaust, and the 2 (hopefully static pressure models) for your H100i, blowing up/out. thumb.gif
