Raidmax Ninja Air Problem

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I though i posted a thread before but i guess it was on a different site. I own a raidmax ninja cae with a 450 watt psu but i have 2 problems with it. First i have sort of an air cube pushing and pulling air from different directions. The side fan is pulling air in, the back fan is pushing air in the heatsink/fan is pushing straight at the side fan, and then i have a system blower beneath them pushing air out. any suggestions on getting better circulation? would making the side fan blow air out make better temps?

My air cube

Second question, i have a problem with my hard drive temperatures stays at about 55C which seems pretty high. There is a place for a front fan but the "eyes" of my case are hard plastic and air cant go threw them. What should it do about that?

The front space for a fan and a view of my hard drive.


The eyes that are blocking air

I see more air being pushed out than in. My opinion get rid of that bottom blower. Also see if you have the possibilty of putting a fan in the front of the case, behing the front panel, usually there's a spot there.

My system consist of an Intake 120mm fan and 120mm exhaust and my case has two honey-comb wholes on the side panel for extra air being drawn in. Though definitely get rid of that blower beneath the CPU, turbine type tend to be louder anyway.

Actually the blower is quieter than the side fan, but if you think it will help. If i turn the side fan so that it intakes? There is a spot in the front of the case, Thats what i took pictures of. Only there is no open outside air that is going to get to the fan be cause it is trapped by the eyes of the case.

wait look at the picture, do you see where the front intake is getting it's air from ? I think it's drowing in the air from the front bottom of the case because it doesn't seem to have any visible holes in the lower front panel and mybe the carpet my be blocking your intake.

EDIT:you can aways mod it with a dremel

The bottom is solid. unless you count the tiny holes in the usb ports, there is nothing there.

The front panel: There are 2 usb ports, an audio in, and audio out

The door: My dvd-rw, black panels for empty drives. behind the black panels are removable metal gates that i should have taken off before, but they easly fall out and cant be put back in, behind those, nothing. If your going to suggest that i should remove the panels and leave the open space, i dont really want a ghetto case. I pretty much bought it for looks and the psu.
