Air cooling config in CoolerMaster Elite 130

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone,

I have the CoolerMaster Elite 130 and it has one 120mm in the front and on 80mm on the side towards the back. Here is a link it, just in case (hahaha...see what I did there?):

I am wondering the best way to direct the airflow in my case. Right now, I have the 120mm in the front blowing in and the 80mm exhausting out. Would there be any benefit to switching it around where the 120mm in the fron is exhausting and the 80mm in the rear blowing in?

Here are my specs, if it helps:

i5 4570 with a stock cooler
2 x 4GBs Crucial Ballistic RAM
Gigabyte H81N mobo
Corsair 450 Watt modular PSU
120GB SSD.
I do not plan on using a GPU.

Thank you in advance for your help!

you're more than fine, that's watercooling temps.

Are you sure those are load temps?

Assuming those are load temps you have nothing to worry about. thumb.gif

Yeah. It is an HTPC, so it really doesn't have a heavy load. The only other thing I use it for is audio (instruments and vocals) recording. I haven't seen it go over 50C,though.
