So, my parts for a new Sandy Bridge build are on the way. It will have an H70, in a 800D case.
I was considering mounting the H70 rad directly on the rear case wall, with a push/pull fan setup, one inside & one outside the case. ( The shrouds are just gutted 25mm case fan frames. Fans are Gentle Typhoons 1850's)
Kinda like this:
fan -- shroud-- case wall --rad -- shroud -- fan
My main concerns are whether this will get too hot
for the case wall metal? Also, will doing it this way reduce the cooling efficiency in any way ?
Has anyone here done it this way ? I see most setups with all the fans & shrouds inside the case.
And lastly, would your answer / advice change depending on whether the fans were set as exhuast or
Thanks very much for any help for a new H70 owner !
