Was bored so i flipped some fans...

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have P182 Case from Antec. Ive always had my fans the way they came stock. 2 Exhaust and one intake up front. So i decided what if i flip the top exhaust and have it become an intake that shoots directly onto my Tuniq Tower? So i did and guess what, 10C temp drops. I used to idle at 55C now i load at 55C. Im also using Panflo's. Not the stock tri-cools. When i raise the fans at max, i get the same temps as if they were on the quietest setting. So i guess ill leave em like that. Its about 12:30 Midnight here, so its alot cooler. Lets see how this works when tomorrow its full blown 29C in here... :-)

You should make the Tuniq blow out the back with the rear fan as exhaust and the top as intake.

Thats exactly how i have it. Im idling right now at 43C! The only reason i never flipped them was due to the immense heat i get in this room. I figured it would only do worse for my system. But it looks like its helping. Lets see when it get real hot in here...

Ah good! That should be about the best setup you can get. You want the outside air to past through the heatsink in the fastest way possible, which is what you are doing.
