I bet the CM one will be similar. It is nice to have if you can take out your original HD cage and have the room in the 5.25 slots.
great, thanks for the input

Rebuilding my rig with this case, and i would like to hear feedback on whether i should set my h50 to intake or exahaust?

Fan Setup:

2x120mm Cm R4 fans exhaust top
1x140mm CM stock intake front fan
Maybe add a bottom 120mm r4 as intake

so, which would be better for flow, making the H50 (gentle typhoon push/pull) as intake or exhaust?

In my antec 902 i had it as exhaust (never tried intake actually) but im thinking maybe having it as intake would blow over my mobo and ram a bit, maybe cooling them a bit? and then being sucked up through the 2 r4 top fans?

or should i just go exhaust like i had? or would that not allow for good airflow (2 top exahuse and 2 rear exhaust and intake fans are in front and bottom?)

One extra note is that my 5850 does not exit heat through the back og the case, but rather around the card, in the case

thanks again, hope you arent getting annoyed at all my posts, im a bit neurotic if you havent noticed by now lol

Exhaust would be a better way to go. The 140 in the top is blowing in, so the fresh air would move right across the RAD and out of the case.

well, no, i am going to have 2x120mm cm r4 exhausting out the top of the case

the 140mm is intake at the front of the case, and another intake at the bottom (120mm if i decide to put that in)

post #12318 of 19729
I would say exhaust, if you did it as an intake the air will just right out the top.

let me just add some background as to why im asking...

i had an antec 902 before this, and had all the stock fans (2x120mm intake front, 1x230mm top exhaust, and h50 exhaust push/pull at the rear) and my temps were awesome

I deciced i was tired of the case and a few days ago bought a cm storm sniper with all the stock fans (side 200mm intake, front 200mm intake, and top 200mm exhaust) with the h50 as exhaust, and my temps on the cpu, mobo and gpu all went up at least 5 degrees at idle..i didnt like that at all

so i picked up the cm 690 ii and decided to give it a go (the sniper was just obnoxiously huge)

so what im wondering is if maybe the second front 120mm intake fan on teh 902 was blowing air over the mobo and reducing the temps a bit

i guess in the end ill just try both intake and exhaust for the h50 in the 690 ii and see which nets me better results
post #12320 of 19729
last question (i promise )

top exhaust fans...

which will get me better cooling? (if i would be running 2 of each)
