You should of waited till your card came before your testing...especially your hot nvidia,wonder how you will feel once that overheats.
Absolutely not. Like I said before, hot air rises and the top fan will deal with it. Be it air from radiators or rising up from GPU's.

And besides, these units aren't traditional heatsinks. The rad is not directly above the cards anyway. Most cards will exhaust air as well, with some coming off the PCB and meeting the top fan.

Why don't you believe me? The results are right in front of you...

Not trying to be rude but it seems like you're finding problems that don't exist...

Hot air in the case won't matter if the radiator is getting air from outside the case.

Which it struggles with cos it has poor airflow.
You dont seem to understand,i HAVE ALREADY TESTED in more positions than you and for longer periods. Front top exhaust was best for me.
The whole H50 thread says different to you,they recommend exhaust
Most people do not have 15c AC,most people run 2 graphic cards,none of your results mean anything as they are not comparable with most peoples setups.
you cant clear all the case air with 1 140mm fan,especially the stock fan,factor in the video cards and your talking real heat.
You are talking like no one has tested H50 other than you.

Fair points mate, but the top fan doesn't need to have crazy RPM's or anything to simply exhaust hot air. Same goes for all other case fans, they are there to bring air in or out, not to cool a heatsink or radiator. Other people have tested as well, they might recommend exhaust for dust reasons. 15c is cold, yes. It's winter here and I have a heat running. It simply won't get any warmer here until spring/summer.

Like you said, for front top in the drive bays or wherever, exhaust is better. I am testing with TOP REAR, intake and exhaust. Other positions will be different like you have already found out.

I hope we're all clear now I don't intend to argue... just making points.
post #22804 of 28613
you forgetting its the only exhaust now you have the top rear as intake..
My last position for my H50 was cut into the roof at the front,it got air from the drive bays at the front and exhausted out the top. Not in the front bays like you said.

Yep okay, I got that bit wrong. My apologies.

I was under the impression that more intake fans than exhaust fans was better, so air is pushed out any crevices, rather than having more exhaust fans which would draw air and dust in through the cracks and crevices.

More intake = positive pressure, slightly less airflow. Less dust. Slightly less airflow won't matter because you have more fans as intake.

More exhaust = negative pressure. Brings air in faster, but also brings in more dust.

But basically what I posted was just to say that when mounting the thing in the top rear position, the most common position, intake is better than exhaust. Move it to any other position and that changes, like you have said.

Also, the case cables are already sleeved black. i'll post pics up of my new case once it shows up. i hope so still hang out on here, after all, once a scout always a scout, right?
Depending on price and shipping costs i would be willing to buy it off of you. Shoot me a PM with the money you are looking for.

Is boosting 32lb (i think for you is 32psi). Ill take some pictures of it to upload. Im leaving... Ill go to the Go Karts track with some friends.
I am on holiday in Majorca believe it or not and that is the reason for not posting lately because i have only been on the internet today.

And i must say, nice pictures of your car Danny! My dad had a supra 1990 3.0 single Turbo injection with an auto gearbox but it died 6 or 7 years ago i think. If i remember correctly the turbo was on its way out and the head gasket needed replacing and loads of other things too which would cost more money to fix than the actual car was worth so he had to scrap it It was pretty much all stock and it was an absolute beast!

But i want a supra 3.0 Twin turbo manual MKIV (so either 1996 or 1998) aerotop when i'm a bit older and use it as a road car and use it for track days. Supras are excellent cars in my opinion and it was such a shame dads supra died.

But for now we are restoring my Dads MKI Golf GTi 1.8 injection

PS do you have any heat problems with your supra?

I have been waiting for someone to put a RAD in the top whilst still being able to use the handle and you have done it perfectly! Now i want to do it to my scout too! Have you tested your components in the case yet to see if it will fit yet? One more thing, is there a gap at the rear of the case?
