That's the thing: I notice absolutely zero airflow coming from the back side of the case. My GPU has its fan exhaust so doubting if I set up my radiator fans correctly smile.gif Or maybe I just need a 140mm front fan with more CFM tan the one coming stock?

that's weird then, i got stock fan on front case and it does good. Btw if you feel like there can be too much hot air inside, turn your psu upside down, the fan on psu will be throwing nice air on your mainboard. With this i dropped mobo temps by 5C wink.gif

It is definitely sucking air in, so not sure why the flow isn't going out smile.gif my thought is because the corsair radiator fans are taking that air and push it out the side. Not a major issue of course, temps are all fine, but makes you wonder.

I run my 250d build with all intake and no exhaust fans other than the natural GPU and PSU exhaust due to the design of those devices. Front 140MM is pull as are the two 120mm on the inside of the H100i...it gives me a nice volumn of air over the mobo and then most of it exhausts out the back 80mm fan holes. Temps are solid, airflow is great and other than the GTX 780 fan spin up at temp it's very quiet. SInce I'm running the machine on my desk (because it's so small) I don't pick up that much dust...so it runs very cool and very clean.

Rebel, as an FYI, I was on the NZXT website and the H60 is not compatible with the G10. They have a cooler compatibility chart.

Hi All,

I just wanted to say "hello" and thank the early adopters who have shared their builds and experience in this forum. I picked up a 250D yesterday after doing a bunch of research and finally deciding on going with a mITX build and this case. I've had most of the major components for about a week, but I'm still waiting on a few miscellaneous parts before starting the assembly. I expect to have some questions and will share my progress and experience as well.

Can anyone recommend any good 120mm slim fans? I just bought the 250D and will be going with this rad in a custom loop.

@mike

check them out, they do look quite nice:
http://www.frozencpu.com/cat/l3/g36/c15/s972/list/p1/Fans-12_Volt_Fans-120mm_x_12mm_Fans-Page1.html
if you decide with them i would suggest you going for 1600 rpm fans, with 240mm heatsink you roughly need more speed (i run mine h100i with fans set to 1000 rpm and they do good with full stressed i5-4670k on 4,2 ghz with slight ~0.010-15v overvoltage on them) Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
after spending over 15 hours finding a right voltages for steady 4,5ghz i cant be asked anymore to mess with voltages.

@hoffa

ask whenever you need, we are ready to help smile.gif

Good catch, thanks for the heads up. Was pretty sure I had seen it on the list, I see now that the H60 is second revision and doesn't use the Asetek design.

No problem. That is good that they actually have that compatibility list, I can see people buying coolers thinking they will work, etc.
