Just bought an L360 2.0 kit... have questions (esp. AMD FX and the block) - Page 2

post #11 of 14
I'm trying to teach you something, not trick you. I'm doing it for free, so even if you aren't grateful, maybe you could try not being rude about it? You aren't entitled to the help of anyone here.

You asked a list of questions, and I answered the ones that I could. Now I'm trying to help you understand one of those answers you seem to be stuck on.

You seem to be caught up thinking that the case is a static, unchanging entity and that the components have no affect on its attributes. When I'm referring to the "case," I'm referring to the qualities that the "case" possesses, like whether it has positive or negative air pressure. The "stuff being added to it" have the tendency to change qualities about the case, such as its airflow. Surely you must recognize that by adding three fans to the case as a part of the watercooling kit, that you are changing the airflow properties of the case?

Let's take your assumption that with the stock 200mm front fan and stock 140mm fan in the rear that the case has only a slightly positive air pressure. If we assume that you add three fans as exhaust at the top of the case as part of the kit, and leave the two remaining fans as-is, then it would be reasonable to figure that the case will now have negative air pressure - owing to it having four fans exhausting vs one fan at intake. Now that we've determined that the case has negative air pressure, we know that you want to use the radiator fans in a "push" configuration.

I hope that clarifies things. Good luck with your other questions.

I would go with the I2 and J2 like the instructions recommend. Most likely you are right and wont see but a degree or two difference anyway.
