By pointing top rad down, your most likely going to get worse temps, air has no place to go. 360 bottom in, 360 top in, no output! Air is just leaking out wherever, instead of being directed
. Even with a 120 or 140 mm back exhaust fan, your pushing 1/6th of the hot air out.
My point is, you need to be mixing some cool air back into airstream after 360 inlet rad, to counter some of the heat you just introduced into the airstream, before it gets to the top rad.
I will test this later today.
I reset the configuration to my initial one, with intake at the bottom and exhaust at the top. I can't put a fan on the side, its an Enthoo Primo. The only place I can put a fan is one at the rear of the case and one single one in the front.
My issue with this is that i seem to be the only one having these kind of issues with the case/setup, I'm not the first one to put a Monsta at the bottom and a radiator at the top.
Similar configurations does not seem to have this problem, evident by Magneks post (and others
Again, these radiators should have no problems whatsoever with barely 400W of heat. Which is why im puzzled.
I do appreciate all the help i'm getting by everyone, thank you.
