Corsair 750D Optimal Fan Setup Help! With Pic.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

Im thinking of getting a Corsair 750D case for my new build (planned specs below), but with so many options Im a bit confused about the best fan configuration! Whether to go with static pressure or air flow fans, push pull, create positive or negative air flow! redface.gif

I will be using a H100i CPU water cooler which looks easiest to install at the top. Looking at some benchmarks it seems best to use in a Push-Pull configuration with a total of four 120mm fans. I dont require any of the hard drive trays at the bottom so can be completely removed to reduce any air resistance from the front fans then install an additional 120mm fan for extra cooling. As well as gaming, I do a lot of 3D rendering which is very CPU intensive so need good cooling but ideally without sounding like a hair dyer!...

Here is a quick labelled diagram I created from a photo I found online of the various fan types and sizes I intend to use. Does this look sensible?? Would the two front fans provide adequate intake?



Thanks for any advice! thumb.gif


CPU: Intel Core i7 4930K Extreme @ 4.6GHz
COOLER: Corsair H100i
MOBO: Asus P9X79
RAM: 32GB (4x8GB) Corsair Vengeance Pro 2133MHz
GPU: nVidia Geforce GTX 690
SFX: Creative X-Fi Fatal1ty FPS
NIC: Bigfoot Xeno Killer Pro
SSD1: Crucial M550 256GB SATA III
SSD2: Crucial M500 960GB SATA III
HDD: Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB
PSU: Silverstone Tech Strider 1000w

Thanks for the fast reply. The 'Corsair Air Series' ones as I like the style and go with the case. They come in different variants though; Static Pressure (SP) or Air Flow (AF) with a choice of High Performance or Quiet operation. Hence why Im a bit confused which to go for! I labelled on the image above the different types and sizes I thought might be best wink.gif





Yeh, the bottom one is the one I was questioning most really. I didnt know whether it was better to have an exhaust to take away the hot air coming from the GPU or have it as an intake to have more air moving over it. Secondly whether the SP or AF version would be best there?

Updated my diagram below. Do you think this looks better?
