um, not doubting you, but have you stood behind the case with 2 GTX 580 that exhaust out?
i assure you there's no cool air coming if I run intake from the back lol.

And again, its just temp till the H100.

Fair enough then, I'll excuse you.

But as for the rest of you, I'm comin' for ya!

You can say it as many times as you like, you'll never convince people who have a good reason for exhaust. I'm happy you like intake, some of us like a cooler system and will trade off for a couple more degrees on the CPU. Not to mention the dust factor I've explained over and over.

As you can see below, in some cases intake or exhaust makes almost no difference. As our old friend Spock said: "A difference that makes no difference is no difference".

If anyone here is on the fence, don't take his word for it. Don't take my word for it either. Try it in your case and select the orientation that suits your system best. Remember to take into account your hard drive, video card and chipset temps and not just the CPU temp. Also, when you're making your decision, take THIS into account (Comment 19027 - click on the picture and have a good look):

There is no blanket solution for intake vs exhaust. Anyone who would have you believe differently....well, my momma always said if you don't have anything good to say about someone then don't say anything at all.....

Intake vs Exhaust both after 3 hours Prime95:

all bought from http://www.specialtech.co.uk

Also i can clean out rad and pump easy enough !
haha yes you probably will. Does often will you have to clean? Im about to get that coolant aswell.

Nice wiring, sweet cables. I really like those main boards.


So, I was bored. I wanted to see if these case fans were really making all that much of a difference, especially the intake fan I added at the bottom. So, I spent the night checking out the effect all these fans have on my system. I have a AeroCool Strike-X fan controller that allows me to control 5 fans. I have the last spot split to 2 fans so it's controlling 6 total. Unfortunately this controller will not let me shut fans off. I can only control them from 50% to 100%. Still, it's good enough to see effects on the system components.

http://www.aerocool.com.tw/index.php...ikexpanel.html

I performed eight tests by testing with Prime 95 and Furmark. The first two tests were all fans at 50% and then all fans at 100%. These were 40 minute tests. I then did a series of shorter tests by turning each fan down one at a time to see what effect it would have. This may be handy for anyone thinking about adding fans in the same locations. I made a chart out of it all, and it's actually not too hard to read. I took a screen shot at every test if anyone wants to see them, however I think the chart has all the relevant information. You can see the files I created in the chart screenshot.

My fans are set as follows. Note that group #5 is the two "flow assist" fans in mid case and are both controlled simultaneously. All the fans are numbered. Different fans may get different results, however their effects should be similar to what's shown in the charts. (I can list the fan manufacturers but I don't think it's very relevant since we're just looking for a general effect and not absolute temps).

Case Fan Arrangement:



Here is the chart of all the tests:



You will note that somehow I messed up two of the pictures when I saved them. However, since I also wrote down all the temps in a chart on paper as well I was able to chart everything except Chipset 1 temp, Chipset 2 temp, and H70 PWM fans RPM for the 4th test (Intake Fan 2 50%).

First we can see a good result when turning all the fans up. From field 2 to field 3 we can see pretty much all the temps are better with all the fans at full speed.

When comparing field 4 to field 3 we can see that the main 200mm intake has some effect on the CPU but oddly enough very little on the GPUs. GPU 2 temp actually decreased. Very strange.

If you look at field 5 with the bottom intake fan speed reduced we see again the CPU is benefiting from that fan as it seems are the GPUs with GPU2 (bottom card) affected the most. When both intake fans are slowed down (field 6) the CPU warms up even further, and the two GPUs also increase their temps with the bottom one again affected the most. SO it seems the intake fans are doing a decent job for the important temps, even the chipset.

My two rear exhaust fans are both the stock fans that came with my H70. To be fair, we should note they are likely made for higher static pressure than air flow (cfm), however when I look at the tests I see that they have almost no effect on the temps at all. There seems to be perhaps a slight increase in two of the cores and that's about it. And this is with both fans turned down to 50% speed (1000 RPM). Because of this test I'm not going to bother turning those fans up any more. I may get a better result if I replace the fans with a high cfm fan. Apparently the specs for the H70 fans are top secret because they are not available on the Corsair website.

http://www.corsair.com/cooling/hydro...pu-cooler.html

For the last test I turned down the two "Flow Assist" fans in "Group 5". When I do this, the top GPU temp increases slightly. This is a very odd result since, when I added the top fan in that group, I measured a 5c drop in the top GPU temp under (the same) load. I was expecting to see a change of a couple of degrees but we see only one degree. It could be that any assist to flow here (even at 50% speed) has a good enough effect that additional flow doesn't make much difference. I would like to point out that the bottom 120mm intake fan I installed seems to be doing a fairly good job. Anyone looking for better temps can get a few degrees out of that mod.

I have ordered an H100 (even though George didn't show us any pics ) so I thought it would be prudent to take as many temps as I can before it gets here so I get a good comparison.

If anyone can think of any additional tests they would like me to do before it arrives just let me know.
