What's wrong with my PC cooling and how to get maximum performance? - Page 3

4-pin fan headers mean little. The CPU fan headers are probably PWM control, but all others are likely variable voltage. Some may even be fixed voltage. For case fan using GPU temperature it varies. Some motherboards have a header than is regulated by GPU heat. Read your manual. They often say what headers are controlled by what temps.

For now it's not important - I will read instruction later, if I'm lucky I will be able to refund my GTX 970 Strix because of his fake specs and then I will buy GTX 1070 - probably strix too. I'm playing only full hd and I'm thinking about 1060 too. He's got 2 pins for case fans. I will inform you later, I'm going to change fans like @doyll instructed me.

Imo 1060 isn't worth the price. I would go RX480 before 1060. But hey it looks like nvidia is going to give you $30 for lying to you, lol, so you can sell your 970, add the $30, maybe scrap some change up and you got yourself a 1070!

It's not so good in Poland - new 1070 strix costs 2400zl - 600$, but in the best case for my gtx 970 I will get 400$ - I won't get 30$ because I'm from Poland, I will just refund it for all money so I it's worth - used gtx 970 costs 250$. I will try to get 1070 then, I think It will have enough performance to give me 60 fps on ultra FHD for years

Please let me know the results.

Didn't do anything because I don't know about bottom fan and what to do with pure wings 2 fan from hddd cage. On front I can mount 2x 120mm or 1x140mm, what's better ?

With fans of similar design 2x 120mm move more air then 1x 140.

Bottom as intake usually helps GPU cooling, but most cases do not have tall enough feet so not enough space between bottom of case and what it sets on to get good airflow. Easy fix is to set case feet on blocks or something like hockey pucks.

I've tested that bottom fan moves the same amount of air like the other stock fans (tested by my hand xD) I will dismantle just top fan and this one from hddd cage. I must buy cable because I will have 5 fans. Tell me, will it be good ? 2 fans from rear and back top connected to one fanin slot. 2 fans from front to second slot and bottom fan to the last fanin slot.

Forget what you hand 'feels' Close up your system and see what CPU and GPU temps are under load.

I've given you my suggestions of what I think will most likely work best. But you have to try those suggestions and see what your component temps are to know if it works.
DO NOT USE YOUR HAND TO TEST AIRFLOW!!tongue.gif

Okay, big thank you to you for your help smile.gif) Now I just have to work and then properly connect fans

Edit: I will try to mount on 120mm mounts 140mm fan on the bottom
