What's wrong with my PC cooling and how to get maximum performance? - Page 2

@doyl I think Pure Wings are better than stock fans to that's why I set them like this. Pulling air from gpu (top) is wrong?

Not sure what you mean about Pure Wings. I said nothing related to what fans you are using, only about where they are and how they are getting their air.

I'll answer your question with two questions; why haven't you read the suggested topics and do you want air to CPU cooler being pre-heated by GPU before it coolers CPU?

With pure wings I mean that I have to remove those what you marked and stay with stock fans (instead of changing them for pure wings) I read the topic but now I'm away from home and I'm from Poland so it's really possible that I don't understand it properly. I will try again when I got home - slow reading makes it easier to understand. I don't want my cpu to be preheated

Whatever works for you. I'm just giving suggestions based on many many years of airflow and air cooling experience. "Ways to Better Cooling" has lots of good topics explaining how airflow works. Once you have read and have a basic idea what it is all about, feel free to ask questions.

That bottom fan and the fan behind the HDDs is probably messing up the entire airflow, I would remove them. Replace the stock fans with all Pure Wings and adjust your temp curve more aggressively so that at full load the fans are running faster.

Read and now I understand. Tomorrow I will change phisically fans. What's the best option to control my fans? Now I'm using built in my case controller (low and high option), I have 3 slots on MOBO. Edited CPU Cooler Fans' setting - now it runs on 100% when reach 55C - it's so quiet! smile.gif Should I remove fan from the bottom? And should I sell one 140mm Pure Wings 2 or put it on front instead of 2x 120mm?

You should be able to run most of those fans directly off the motherboard and control them from the BIOS or using a program in Windows. You have five 4 pin fan headers available on that motherboard so that should cover all the fans. If not, use a splitter to combine fans.

On this motherboard I have -2 x 4-pin CPU fan connectors -3 x 4-pin system fan connectors So how should I mount them? I've heard about fan control by GPU, is it necessary for me? If yes how to do that?

Only the most recent GPU's have auxiliary fan control connections so you wouldn't have to worry about that. I would personally hook up the CPU fan, rear exhaust and top exhaust fans on CPU fan connections using a fan splitter and the front intake and bottom intake on the system fan headers. But in reality, it wouldn't matter that much depending on how you tune the fan curve.

I think I will connect single fan to single connector. There won't be the same settings for both CPU Fan connectors?
