Thick 280mm for CPU + GPU. - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Nothing's set in stone...you'll send hot air over the vrm with the top rad intaking air. I'd have a rear intake fan and top exhaust, and front intake or exhaust...I don't like standard stuff so much lol
And dust, well, you can use filters on intake fans. Pressure is not a big deal, since cases are not completely sealed.

Maybe that would be better..

You would lose the dust filter but the vrm's and rad would receive cold outside air.

I prefer this configuration as I run dust filters on all my intakes. I don't really see the the ram temps or VRM cooling being an issue unless you are running some really cheap board with inadequate VRM heat sinks (which you aren't wink.gif).

Good point...I second the intake cooler air from outside idea in general, specially if the gpus are cooled by the loop as well. I still think you'd need a couple of fans moving air inside the case to cool the hdd's, vrm and ram.

As for the foam surrounding the fans, that's absolutely brilliant and a great thing to try if possible. thumb.gif

(HDD Cage will be removed)

I'm planning to use Alphacool ST30 240mm in top and 280mm in front.
since I'm in the process of building around this case ...the only 140MM (280) RAD I can recommend is SR1-clearance above RAD (yes you would be fine with push only on this RAD)
this fans @ 5~7v would be ideal

For top I would recommend 2x120 or 3x120 (thin or there might be clearance issues with tall RAM )

you can use the bottom opening for intake or exhaust also ,..nice case enjoy it thumb.gif

P.S. you want to provide as much cold/fresh air for your RADs so just like Lass3 mention
