RebelLord,

Have you ever tried a side fan in your rig and if so what temp difference did it make or did it cause an increase due to airflow disruption?

Thanks
post #4303 of 8680
No I have not put a side fan on my 550D. I won't be.
I did run a side fan on my old case though. Airflow was still correct. Running a side fan would be just fine for you. Adds quite a bit of clean fresh air into the case directly towards your gpu

Would that be 2 fans to do this or just the bottom intake on the 550d? Thanks very much for your help by the way, You've helped me decide the fan locations.

Do you have any suggestions for the fans I should implement? I am planning on using cougar vortex fans for the h100 at the very least.
post #4305 of 8680
I just recently got a 550D and an H100. I opted to put the H100 up top but as exhaust.. So the rear fan and the h100 are acting as exhaust. And I have the two front fans intaking. My temps are very nice. Hottest core was 72c at 4.8ghz while running prime.

I thought about doing the rad as intake but I liked all the air exhausting from that part of the case. You will have a harder time expelling warm air from the case with just a single exhaust fan.

I have a 680 in my case. Temps are excellent but I have an Antec Kuhler 920 strapped to it.

I will try both ways, however I still need to decide on the fans, should I just have them all be cougar vortex? That should shift some air!

Those are supposed to be some pretty good fans. So I'm sure they will work great.

I don't feel there are any defects. Some people say the case is made for silence which it is, and thus has poor air flow. I find this to not be true.If you remove the top and side vent covers I am getting nice temps with good air flow.

They apparently shift 70 CFM at 17db of noise.

Are you using a side fan lightsout?
post #4310 of 8680
Well since Diablo 3 keeps my 4890s pegged at 100% usage I have the side pop out off. No fan installed but keeps em about 5* cooler for now.
I might throw on one or 2 of my extra 140 mm fans just for when gaming. Just to see the difference
