P180B reaction: Mixed bag.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I recently ordered a P180B to replace my custom old dell case that I modded the crap out of.

That case had no fans and I would get about a 30C idle and a 51C load.

First of all I love this new P180, its quality is just superb, and I really like how it looks.

Problem time.

with the top and rear fans blowing exhaust, I put one in the front as intake and removed the fan in the bottom chamber.

my idle is 33C and load is 55C.

This makes NO sense. whether fans are on high or low makes relatively no difference.

Help?

Do this. Flip the top fan so it becomes intake. Check out my System on my sig. I got that same case. I flipped the fan and my temps dropped enough for me to crack a smile.

I'm going to try it on my brother's rig I built for him. He has a Opteron 170 with the IHS removed, a Tuniq Tower 120 and an additional 120mm SilenX fan and it still idle in the mid 40s! Thanks for the tip!

Ha! Did I mention its my brothers? I think he might be a little upset with me if he came home to find his case like that. He wasnt to happy when he found out I removed the IHS. He didnt have a choice since I gave him the MB, RAM and CPU. But he bought the case....
