Most people use one of the side fans as an intake that blows onto the CPU (upper side) or GPU (lower side).

Other still have modded their cases to have another 120mm mounted below their CDROM / DVD burner in the front as an intake as well. This seems to work well from accounts.

The bottom front fan doesnt appear to pull much air in for some reason.
I have a side fan and a fan in the drive bay under my cd/dvd rom but it is the stock CM blue LED fan that came with my case so it doesn't really do much but i don't have to put it on the fan controller like all of my main case fans. If i used my kaze 3k on the bottom for intake i think that would blow enough air to help cool the card, also my side fan is a 88cfm yate loon i cannot put a fan on the upper side panel due to my cpu cooler taking up the space.

From what Ive read on this forum, if you have the correct intake / exhaust set up, the air flow is very good. Some say that the cpu and GPU cooling fans mess up the flow so its all hit and miss... I guess the sum of all of this relies on your own personal experience and if it works for you.

By the number of posts you have made and your rep points - Im probably singing to the choir here
post #4703 of 19729
thankyou but i am no expert, my setup is like this
2 front intake fans 1 is 88cfm blue led yate loon, 1 side intake 88cfm yate, 1 rear exhaust 88cfm yate, heatsink fan 120cfm or so kaze 3,000 rpm 120X38mm blowing to the top, 1 88cfm yate right above heatsink, another kaze 3k 120X38mm above ram on the top. Top fans are exhaust.

I tried to put my other kaze right above my heatsink so i can get a push/pull like setup going but i can't fit it because of the 4 pin power cable for the motherboard, although, i was thinking about cutting off the clip so squeeze it in but that might complicate things. I have heard that a side fan disrupts air flow but with it on or off i do not notice a single degree in temp change.

heatsink fan 120cfm or so kaze 3,000 rpm 120X38mm blowing to the top
When I first installed my Xiggy, I too had the fan at the bottom, blowing to the top. I then realised after a week that the fan was sucking up the heat from the GPU. I then turned the HS so the fan was blowing toward the rear exhaust. That small change resulted in 3c drop in CPU temps after burn in of the AS.

Are you able to rotate your HS, perhaps that may allow you to use a second fan?

The rest of your fan placement looks fine. Just coz Im nosey and enquiring minds need to know... why did you go 88 mm fans over 120mm?

not 88mm 88CFM all of my fans are 120mm size most of them are rated at 88cfm.

oh yea i can rotate it but dont feel like re-applying AS5 and waiting 200hrs for it to cure again and watch my temps jump around. I guess i could just use the rest of my IC7 compound and give that another test run but it would be nice to use the other kaze as the rear and since it will also be very close it will act like a push/pull setup as well.

and oc is become one of my hobby, but i'm still not sure to use WC like any other extreme oc'ers (well i'm not that kind of extreme, LOL).. but hey air cooled with megahalem it's still amazing
im thinking about geting a true 120 well see i got some money coming this next week from a few jobs, just got off the phone with another lady today so we will see the black edition true 120 looks like it might be soon. still a little confused on the 120 fan for it. i would like the mobo to control it and not need to get a fan controller.

Get a Megatron and save some cash , the TRUE black is sexy though.

If you want to go the motherboard fan control route, then do a push/pull setup with 2x25mm fans.

This is bugging me, what are the temps that TRUE and megatron get with a similar setup like mine?
