Technically you can put fans however you want I guess - it's just not as optimal with heat build up against the wall as well as any dust being pulled in from the back. I think the real issue is airflow - ThermalTake could mod this design to perforate the whole case above the left side. I tried flipping my case on it's side as well - and that didn't work either. The blower on the GPU is still pushing air into corners. I feel like I should diagram all this. LOL

but your experience and testing is quite important to me because I am planning to upgrade my GPU next year and the 1070 was on the list

honestly I dont think this case is badly engineering from q cooling point of view considering the other ITX designs on the market.

Out of interest, are you driving the fans via a 3rd party software solution like SPEEDFAN or from your mobo and GPU built in software? not sure it would effect your results but I found SPEEDFAN so much better vs my GIGABYTE mobo and GPU offering....

Not sure how other software changes a whole lot. eVGA provides the ability to do custom fan curves - so I can set fixed RPMs or a more aggressive curve. I can certainly lower the GPU temp, but at the cost of sound levels. Right now it's tuned for quiet operation (as it came from the factory). I'm obsessed with keeping things quiet if I can. The eVGA 1070 is a pretty quiet card compared to the 980TI I had previously.

I have a Gigabyte MOBO as well...I have the front fan set to a fixed RPM. I don't really see a benefit to going above 450-500RPMs. Well, I see a benefit to cooling, but not for noise. I could set a curve - but the curve is based on the "system" temps. I've found the system temp hovers around 60C and only deviates a little. It's not really a great sensor to use to change RPMs.

Anyways - I need to install the two exhaust fans tomorrow and try my tests again. It could be the ticket.

My build on Pcpartpicker https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/b/y8nnTW
Added http://www.watercoolinguk.co.uk/p/DEMCiflex-dust-filter-Cooler-Master-HAF-X-Front_55340.html to the inside of the vented side panels, so with the front and rear of my case exhausting air I limited sucking in dust.

These also finish the rear off nicely.. http://www.watercoolinguk.co.uk/p/Thumbscrews-Case-Black-1-Piece_19353.html.
While these https://www.amazon.co.uk/Aluminium-solid-39x17-Enclosure-Feet-Absorber/dp/B01FOKSM8C/ref=pd_sim_sbs_107_1?ie=UTF8&dpID=41icYoa6xzL&dpSrc=sims&preST=_AC_UL160_SR160%2C160_&psc=1&refRID=HNTZJ4J7MEPAK92GVKWR are so much nicer than the plastic rubbish on the case...

These 3 little mods make a £35 case feel a whole lot more premium...

Anyway good luck with the 80mm's , let us know how you get on... smile.gif

i should have phrased better

SPEEDFAN gives you the opportuniy to alter fan speed profiles depending on GPU and/or CPU temps

this is where I believe its an improvement vs the OE solutions so you can basically decide; somehow, how to make your cooling more or less agressive depending on the games you are playing (CPU or GPU bound)

hope it makes sense now

anyway good luck with the 2rear fans:thumb:

So I have a dumb question, I bought the case about a week ago and built almost everything except my gpu. Got an i5-6600k and a kraken x41 that I installed and everything.

Now as for the gpu I was planning on getting a gtx 980ti. My question is would I be able to fit a 980ti hybrid in the case? If not, what case would you guys recommend?

Hey guys,

New to the forum and just waiting for this case to arrive with the rest of the components. Quick question, is there a status quo on how we should configure the fans?

Ive read some people have them all set to exhaust rather then and intake and an exhaust.

Cheers!

After all different combos the best is front and back exhausting producing about 5 deg c cooler CPU and even my GPU runs 5-6 C cooler. I have fine mesh on both side vents so any air being pulled through will trap dust. May also depend on what cooling set up you be thinking on, only thing i didn't try was replacing the front mounted fan on my H75 with the 200mm you get with the case.

Cheers, ill go with both exhausting then.

Nice Rig!

I like the link in the blog for the dust filters, might have to pick those up!

I just want to thank the members of this forum, the moderators and admins. Every single time I'm considering a new case, this is the one place to come for good pics and information, be it my last 2 mATX cases (Deep Silence 4, TJ08-E) my current ITX case (SUGO-08) or cases I'm in the process of considering (Node 304) and this one in this thread, this forum is consistently the best spot, not just for pics but also interesting compatibility information.

Thanks thumb.gif

I was a bit worried being they were magnetised and fitting inside the case close to HDD's and GPU but they are very, very weak magnets and been tested for any damage to pc innards . I have had no prob's and it was like they were made to fit.
