no intake fans?

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
i was just looking at some other threads saying that the amount of air going in and out should be equal, i get that. but i was wondering what if u had no fans going in? just out. i am currently doing so with max cpu temps at 100 farenheit and max gpu temps of 71C. if i were to "balance airflow" would my case be any cooler? note i only run two case fans both in excess of 80 cfm

Your case would be a LOT cooler if you dont keep your side panel off.
And if you do Im betting you will still see some difference.

Have one fan blowing out fron the rear and another sucking air in the front (from the side would be even better).

Its nice to have a front fan, especially if it's 120mm and on a fan controller I can crank my front up high for gaming or benching, and make it silent the other times.... As you can see, it's also nice to cut out obstructions from your case, like the metal grills behind the fans (front/rear) and in my case, I also cut out 2 of the Hard drive trays to allow the front fan to blow straight in full force on my video card/CPU....much better air flow...check it out..

The last picture is my favorite, all 3 fans lined up pushing air the same direction....Big typhoon cant do that..I just need to add another raptor in raid to the top HD slot, then I will have supreme cooling/performance..like a little tunnel..lol

Nice guide, I wonder how he would have my setup in those pics....stupid graphics card stock cooler I figure my front intake is blowing any air coming out of the front of that GPU towards the rear anyways..

it would be better to have at least one 80mm intake fan in the front or on the side

If you rotate that 9500 by 90 degrees, you will actually get better cooling perfermance since it will allow the heatpipes to work more efficiently.
