I have a haf-x with the rear fan as exhaust and the others as intake.

hey the Haf X has way too much mesh to provide any kind of air pressure. It is an Air cooled design case. So you want lots of airflow.




Are you able to still use the Side Panel fan with your 7970?
Following the air flow design in the image will give you the best cooling with that case, as that is how it is designed. Hope that helps.

thanks man, I am a bit worried about my VRMs, they get very hot under load, im thinking the ambient temp might not be helping, I was wondering if I turned my fans back the normal way maybe it would keep my PC cooler

I got a windowed side panel, so do you think it would be best if I turn the fans back round the normal way? would it cool my pc a bit better?

If you don't have the side panel fan I'm not sure.
Is your 7970 an exhaust cooler or is it a dual fan one?

If it is an exhaust fan, having the top fans as exhaust might not help the GPU any, that is where the side panel fan really helps.
If the GPU has dual fans then I would use the top case fans as exhaust, you want good airflow through the case, like a wind tunnel, so the GPU feeds off the cool airflow.

I would try the top fans as exhaust and see if it helps.

Very nice build! thumb.gif
Read 2nd link in my sig to get an idea of how I go about cooling. We want to move the heat air from GPU out of case with as little mixing into cool intake air as posslbe.

to the OP, you should use doyll suggestions. he helped me with my system cooling awhile back on these forums and I can now say all my
hardware is cool and happy. thumb.gif
