Hey guys I've had a lot of trouble with my internet and I've been trying to get my servers moved and updated. You may have noticed all my pics are down.

I will update everything when I'm sure everything has propagated and is stable.

I already asked this, but I would like to do so again, to get more opinions, and because I just assembled my loop. CPU is water cooled, but the video cards are NOT. I was originally planning on going with option 2, but I accidentally ended up installing the fans backwards, thus I have option 1.

Three choices (see attachments);

1) Everything is intake besides the rear.
+ Cool air will be brought through the rad
+ Positive pressure
- Hot air will be put into the case
- Hot air rises
- Lack of exhaust air flow

2) Everything is intake besides the top
+ Hot air will leave the case
+ Hot air rises
+ Rear intake may help cool the rad air?
- Pulling hot air through the rad
- Negative pressure

3) Same as 2, but with a rear exhaust.
+ Hot air will leave the case
+ Hot air rises
+ Rear exhaust will help dissipate heat from video cards -> cool rad air?
- Pulling hot air through the rad
- Negative pressure

I've heard the argument that the top should always be an exhaust due to hot air rising, but doesn't that only hold true in an uncontrolled environment? Regardless, the fans will direct the flow. Do the fans actually "work harder" to push hot air down?

Two more quick questions;
1) Would I be a look at just a 1-3C difference in temps between the setups?
2) How much of a difference in temperature would you expect me to see if I replaced the top 200mm fans with 3 120mm fans? I know that using 120mm fans are better, but I'm doubting it is worth spending $40 on, plus wasting 2 200mm fans.

What do you guys think?

Honestly option 3 is the best option. If you're not cooling your GPUx with h2o as well then it only makes sense to exhaust the heat out of your system every way possible. This also takes it easier on your CPU loop to cool your CPU and not have to fight any residual heat that doesn't need to be there. Also there is no way your PSU can exhaust into the case. Only one way there and that's out the back.

Hello Fellow HAF Owners,

I should introduce myself and case; Hi I'm Jyk, the proud owner of a HAF 912, (I'll have a pic soon).

Thanks,

That's what I was thinking. I'll probably go with that unless somebody can convince me otherwise. My only concern is the negative pressure. Not really looking forward to the excessive dust balls.

True...my PSU has a fan on the top, but I suppose that would actually be an intake.

Actually there shouldn't be any negative pressure. With the grills throughout the whole Cabinet any negative pressure is replaced by positive pressure. About the only way I believe you would have negative pressure is if you were to completely seal off all the grills not associated with the fans.

And you could always change the orientation of the PSU fan. But you'd have to bust your warranty and flip it so that it would exhaust instead of intake.
