Fan configuration and Air Pressure?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am doing what I can to lower the temps in my case while I am gaming, and I am no expert on air pressure.

I have 10 total fans (excluding the gpus blower fan). the ones that are pulling air in are the four 120mm fans in the front (they are on both sides of the HDD cages, the 200mm fan in the side and the 120mm fan in the back. then the fans on my H100i are pushing air out the top (4 fans push pull) and my GPU is blowing air out the back.


I suppose the underlying question is. should I really have this rear 120mm sucking air in? I think my room has decent air circulation and my desk is in the middle of my room. however while I am gaming I have my GPU blowing 60-77C air out the back.
I was trying to get + air pressure in my case because I read somewhere that It helped keep dust out. TBH I never noticed a difference in dust buildup, and that makes me wonder if that statement is true.

I'm no air expert either, but it seems like that rear 120 is just sucking that hot air from the GPU back into your case. Try flipping it around.

Nothing like feeding CPU cooling heated air. rolleyes.gif
