Coolermaster Centurion 5 Air Duct Help

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, my old case is the Thermaltake Soprano but I'm giving it to my dad, I got tired of it, so I installed the Centurion 5.
The problem I'm having is, I cant leave the air duct on the side panel cuz my cpu cooler is so huge it wont close.
The side of the cenutrion has a little vent, is it possible I could connect the air duct there? Would the duct make a huge difference? Or should I just connect a 120mm fan somehow?
Thanks for the ideas.

I always take those duct things off. They don't really do anything to temps IMHO.

You mean this thing right?:

I took the side duct off of mine and slapped a fan on. The fan will help more than the duct, especially if your heatsink moves the air front to back in the case.

ok thnx, I'll just attach a fan to it. Another question, the front of the case has a cheap 90mm fan, could I disconnect this and add a 120mm fan?
The only thing is Im not sure if there are holes big enough for the 120mm fan.

Check and see if there are two sets of holes. On mine, I took all the stock fans off and put 120mm fans on, but there were mounting holes for several sizes.

You'll have to get your tape measure out. Most cases have 3 sets of hole for 80mm,92mm and 120mm. Some don't though. You will eaither need to buy a 92mm to 120mm converter or buy a 92mm fan. I don't know what the fan layout is like in the centurion though, so you'll have to check.
