Aerocool DS Cube, need help with cooling

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I want my computer to be cooler and I have two empty fan slots on top.

I made a few illustrations, but I don't know what to choose:

Negative Pressure:

Neutral Pressure:

Positive Pressure:


Need some help here. Anybody have Dead Silence? How did you do it?

Hello and welcome to OCN! smile.gif

What are you using to cool your CPU? Are you using on-board video or a discrete graphics card?

OK assuming you have the 212 Evo exhausting toward the back, I'd go with the "Positive Pressure" picture you have. I'm a big supporter of positive pressure cases anyway since it really helps cut down on dust and keeps lots of cool air coming in the case. Plus you'll effectively be dumping cool air on top of your CPU cooler (and the graphics to a lesser extent). So that gets my vote. thumb.gif

I don't know actually. Easier for me to take a picture than to try explain this in english(im norwegian) rolleyes.gif


Kinda hard to choose between negative and positive air pressure because it seems like one half are saying positive rocks and the other half the opposite. Guess I have to try both.

EDIT: Just saw now that the arrows on the negative pressure picture are pointing the wrong way rolleyes.gif

In that picture, the 212 Evo fan is exhausting toward the back (i.e. it's pushing air through the heat sink).

Fair enough, sometimes that's all you can do. Let us know how things go. smile.gif

I will. Gonna try positive pressure first:) Going for Aerocool DS Fans and adding a few DEMcifilter too.

I found this poll on toms hardware and it says: Positive 50 % vs Negative 50 % based on almost 700 votes. I think this depends on the case so I hopes someone with Dead Silence sees this thread.
