Help with airflow (asap plz)

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hey, just got a new motherboard and my heatsink doesnt fit the way it used to =(. I have two choices, one. re-sit the true like this http://img261.imageshack.us/img261/3...sddasdaxv7.jpg or 2. Use my big typhoon for 1.5 months, then get a new case (getting a new case soon anyways, not related to the heatsink incident). Which one would you choose?
Oh, hai.

Nah thats not my case. I cant find the link to my case atm because im on dail up . Ive decided to go with the big typhoon as the fan wouldnt be able to fit on it unless it was blowing up towards the psu, but I read that its bad to have it doing that?
Oh, hai.

If your psu pulls enough air its probably alright, you just want to be pulling enough air through it. What icute case do you have, at least the model name?

http://www.modsynergy.com/review65.htm Sorry your site was blocked by my work. With the fan down low like the front fan is you won't have issues with air flow to your gpu, and putting the cpu cooler sideways should get you more air I would think.

I would say as long as you have good enough fans then I would stay where the stock fans are.(you need reasonable high cfm fans though). Are you overheating badly now?
Just save for a better case when you can.

Yes its fine to use psu to exhaust. I would turn both side fans into intake personally. Here is a pic, I can't draw so yeah...

Hahaha, your picture is better than mine, I had to use the straight line tool, cant draw free hand xD. Sweet. Atm, i dont have both side fans on becuse the top one was blocking the true and my hr-03gt cooler, so i took it offm, but in dvd driver bay bit (5inch thing?) i have 2 120mm fans doing intake, so atm i have 3 intake fans. Thanks, Ill go install it now =D. +rep

I would go exhaust on the top, and intake by the gfx card. If its too tight for a fan on top you might look into a slim fan profile standard fans are 25mm thick, they make 15mm ones.
