CM Haf 922 Extra Fan - Where ?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys !

Managed to snag a Noctua NF-A15 fan for 12 $ ( Discount ) and was wondering where i should put it in my case.

My case has all the fan slots filled ( Front / Side / Top 200 MM fans ; Bottom / Back 140MM Fans ) so i was thinking of sticking the fan on the HDD cage or where the 5.25 CD / DVD combo drives go.

If i put it on the HDD cage, i think, i would get more airflow towards the GPU. And, because i have the bottom intake fan there, the air from the NF A-15 would also be pushed upwards towards the CPU & RAM and aftewards pushed out by the CM MegaFlow 200MM fan.

Would like some opinions on this. Where should i put it and why ? ^_^

In case anyone was wondering :

1) When mounting the fan in the bottom, i get :
- GPU Load temp 65 deg celsius.; VRM temp 67deg cels; Mem temp 59 deg cels;

2) When mounting the fan on the HDD rack with dual sided tape ( for vibration dampening ) and zip ties ( for securing )
- Gpu Load temp 62-63 deg celsius; VRM 63; Mem temps : 55;

Did not notice any difference in CPU temps ( probably because the fans at the top & back of the case are already doing the most they can for the CPU )
