Stacker 832 Bottom Grill

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
The floor of the Cooler Master Stacker 832 has a grill that appears to be the right size for 2 120mm fans, with the corner screw holes drilled and everything. Do you guys think it would make sense to put either 1 or 2 fans as intakes down there, to get cold air straight to the video card?

I currently have 2 120mm intake fans in the front (1 on the HDD Rack, the other one of the side 120s placed in the 3 drive bays), a top blowhole exhaust, and a rear exhaust, but I wasn't sure if having a bottom intake (either instead of, or in addition to, my current fans) would help to improve temps on my video card more.

Everything runs at a decent temperature except my video card. The PCB gets almost burningly hot under full load, and I want to get cooler air to it until, and possibly after, I upgrade its cooling (probably to an HR-03).

So, what do you guys think? Would there be dusts issues, or would it screw up the airflow too much? Thanks.

Dust is an issue, since dust will collect on the floor, and then when you turn it on, will get sucked in. If you have the 4 side fans, then you can make the bottom two fans exhaust, so no problem with dust and it will most likely help with exhausting all that hot air.
