Custom Mini ITX Case (Cooling)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Case Custom Design by Me biggrin.gif
Dimensions 180mm x 131 mm x 89 mm
Motherboard Gigabyte H77n Wifi
Power SupplySilverstone sfx st45sf-g 450 Watt
CPU Intel I5 3350p
CPU Cooler Noctua nh-l9i
GPU Radeon HD 7750
RAM Corsair Vengeance 8GB DDR3-1600 (2 Sticks)
HDD 500 GB Western Digital 2,5 inch
SSD 250 GB INTEL SS
SYS FAN Fractal Design Silent Series R2 60 mm

MAX TDP:
CPU 69 Watt
GPU 61 Watt

AIRFLOW:
CPU 57.5 m³/h (Exausting into motherboard Area)
GPU Not Relevant (isolated airflow)
PSU Not Relevant (isolated airflow)
SYS 34 m³/h

Hi there im new to the forums and this is my first post here smile.gif

What i would like to ask you guys:

Basically the CPU has an isolated intake tube and will exaust heated air trough
the CPU Cooler into the motherboard area of the case.
Additonal i have one extra 60mm Fan blowing 34 m³/h extra air into the motherboard area.

So heated air from the CPU Cooler and additional air from the 60 mm
fan are supposed to cool the motherboard.

Blowing a combined air volume 57.5 + 34 = 91.4 m³/h into the motherboard area.
(Asuming the two fans wont disturb eachoter )

If you could make a well educated guess about how much heath in WATT does the motherboard itself produces at peak usage. And would this setup be enough to cool the motherboard?

See images for clarification below.

Thanx,
LordLibres
The Images below do not show the intake tube for the CPU exept for one picture.
The Images below so show two 60mm fans but it will be reduced to 1 .

Nice build! Personally I feel that the 60mm fans should be configured as exhaust to balance the pressure in the case , but since you have a lot of extra vents that theory may not be valid. Your best bet would be to put a lid/ cover( if you have one ) on check the temps with the 60 mm fans as intake and compare it with temps for 60mm fans as exhaust. Be sure to correct the temperatures by subtracting the ambient room temperature from them and take an idle reading and a load reading. Use prime 95 to simulate load on cpu and HWMonitor or core temp to measure temps
