Cooling with the P180 case - Page 3

post #21 of 42
Thread Starter 
well i took the fan out of the bottom chamber, and took off the plastic on it, and then took off the 120mm fan on the back of the case, put the fan from the bottom in the back of the case and put the fan from the back to the front of the case. My PSU has active cooling and its sealed off from the rest of the case so i didn't need the extra fan down there, If your using a passive cooling psu then i wouldn't recommend taking the fan out from down there

ya a dehumidifier somewhere between the wall of your house to the pc case... so it becomes quite spaceous and hard to build, so its kinda not worth it... but if u really wanna do it, it'd be awesome pulling -5c air into the chassis!!!

yea definetly, I want this thing ice cold, so I can do some major OCing. The only thing is the ducting I have is like 4-5" diameter, so I might use that to duct the hot air from the exaust fan outside, and buy some smaller ducting to play around with, cause the ducting that you get from say frozencpu.com is 80mm diameter.

cause the exaust fan is blowing out hot air, which raise the ambient temp in my room, (trust me, I can tell especially when gaming, a gaming session the other night raised the temp in my room by like 20-30*F) so I figured why not just get rid of the hot air all together by blowing it outside the house.

ok good thought...but what happens when th wind blows toward the ducting, its just gonna push the moist air from outside in your case, because a 100cfm is no competition for 500cfm light breeze from outside, but u could say forget the little case fan and get a 120v blower and hook it up outside the house and have it suck air out and it would be very powerful and quiet because it would be out side!

PS: that happened to me in my old room, it would get very hot from my pc, so just close all the heater vents and crack your window open...

Thats exactly what I did/do.

Thats a good point about the wind affecting it, I think the only thing is that where i would be venting it is in like a nook where there isn't that much wind, I have a window there and I get no breeze at all coming in from there.

u can try but be careful to make sure it does blow air back into the case, cuz if it does it will condense forming moisture all over everything in your case and the it shorts out... big no no!lol

maybe run a vent out there and not hook it up to your case for a few days and see if any air blows in... if it does then it wont work.
