post #11 of 14
why didn't you put that first fan (in the drive bays) on the other side?
Then you would still have 3 fans, but you didn't need to make a new mesh?

If you want to try and lower your temp's do some CPU block re-mounts, I usually do 4 or 5 times at least with a new block, then work it back down to my lowest temp, I let it go for a week or so and settle in between block re-mounts..I've seen all the way from almost no gain to 2-4C gain..If you get a mount that is really a lot cooler then your others you might just want to leave it there, sometimes its hard to get a perfect mount back...

Make sure all the air is out of your rad first, thats one thing that will hurt your temp's...With it hard mounted to the inside top like that it will be a little harder to do, just rock your box front to back and side to side and see if you can work anymore air out of it, there might not be any in it, but if i don't like my temp's thats the first thing i would check myself....I always leave my rad loose so I can shake and slap it around a little to get all the air out...
Yeah, I'll try remounting a couple more times in the future. I think I have all the air out of my radiator. Before I put in my motherboard I unbolted the radiator while the loop was running. I moved it everywhich way and bleed all the air out. I left it running and remounted the radiator so there is no way there is any air left in it.

If I did that it would be blowing into a piece of plastic at the top. I didn't want the fan to be exposed where there was a hole in the mesh. The nice thing about this stuff is that from an angle you cannot see the fans, but looking at it directly it is 90% open. Great for airflow and protection.

I get what you are saying, with the top ports, didn't notice that.
But I think it wont affect temps, since the air already went trough the radiator.
But yeah it will be blocked..

Just thought you didn't think of it
