Hey so wanted to post my completed build, ran into a lot of temp problems but I solved them by changing fan directions
I use the two on my rad as intake and the top and back as exhaust... I was using the rear as exhaust and the top as intake but my temps were so high under loads... once i switched em I was doing great.

here is a link to my cpu-z Validation.. running 4.8ghz at 1.2v and my ram is using xmp settings to oc to 3200mhz

From inception to build, the only changes I have made are switching the case fasn for Corsair SP120 rbgs and I changed from the x52 kraken to the x62 kraken... so far loving the new build....

Photos inside Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)






Things to finish....

Sleeve all cables, make custom 6 and 8 pin pci-8 cables
Secret quest to rule the world... or showcase my gpu a bit more....

pics to follow as I mod more

Ah, so you did the test with the top fan as exhaust... Interesting result. Maybe that's why many of the S340 systems I've seen have the front fans as intake and the top and rear fans as exhaust. Apparently, this set up just works the best.

Thanks for posting your results and the pics. Good job!

First build in almost 10yrs. Loving my S340 kinda wish I had went with the white and purple case. Sorry for the shoddy camera work. Plan on adding a ton more to it as time goes on. Just threw it together as a reliable budget build for the moment.

Hey y'all, new member of the club checking in biggrin.gif

I checked through the first 15 pages, and didn't see an answer to a question I have regarding airflow. The case comes with two fans exhausting, and I've bought two additional fans for the front. Which way should I be orienting my fans to minimize dust? I've been reading up on it, and I understand that dust will eventually make its way in through cracks and small openings, but I wanna do what I can to minimize it as much as possible.

I've read about positive and negative pressure, and it seems like positive is the way to go? What do you guys recommend? 1 exhaust (back) with 3 intake (top and front)? 2 exhaust, 2 intake?

I've read about positive and negative pressure, and it seems like positive is the way to go? What do you guys recommend? 1 exhaust (back) with 3 intake (top and front)? 2 exhaust, 2 intake?

I tried the following 2 configurations.

Front 2 140mm fans as intake alnong with the top 120mm fan and the rear 120mm fan as exhaust, and during my testing I noticed my temps on my video card were very high under load they were around 79-83 degrees. I Have the MSI GTX 1080 Armor OC.
So I ended up going with the 2 front 140mm as intake, and both the top and back as exhaust and my gpu temps dropped to mid high 60s but staying below the 72 degree mark as well as my CPU stayed under 80 under linpack testing....

So for my build It ended up being the absolute best setup... my cooling for my GPU is the Kraken X62 btw not sure if it mattered but just letting you know...

I've gotta find a solution to the front panel restriction of this case, specifically the lower fan mount as it's centered. My hybrid is mounted up front on the lower fan mount and removing the front panel drops temps by 6C which is pretty ridiculous. I can't place it on the mount above which is closer to the opening of the front panel because the Hybrids 120mm Radiator reservoir then blocks the lower fan mount and I'd like to preserve correct installation and keep with hoses out the bottom.

Other than that pretty happy with this case but seriously the front panel sucks for temperatures.
post #2319 of 2346
I bought the H440 because it has the enclosed front panel, cases with mesh fronts look terrible after time EVEN if you regularly maintain them.

6c means nothing unless you are close to thermal throttling, you gave up a bit of airflow for better looks, worth imo.

Alright man, I'm gonna be honest. I'm having a hard time grasping what your final configuration is. tongue.gif

Edit: oh wait nvm I understand. The first time you tried, you had 3 intake and 1 exhaust. The second time you had 2 intake, 2 exhaust.
