I set mine up blowing air in because the air outside of the case is cooler than the air inside of the case. I have the rear case fan as exhaust.

That's what I was thinking and it's what my fans are set to do right now, but the more I think of it, the worse this set up is. Mainly because you want a negative pressure case so you have less dust and less hot air in your case. So you should have 1 - 2 120MM fans in the front and have 3 at the top end as exhaust. So no matter what, the only air in your case it cold air and all the hot air is completely expelled before it does any serious heating to your components.

I flipped my fans and temps appear to be worse, just saying.


I have the stock fan in the front at full blast, stock fan in the rear on full blast.

It's in a space where no one would really see it.
I'm assuming the whole side needs resprayed. Thought maybe I could get away with just spot spraying the small areas.
Thanks.

Aluminum? In the 600T?

If you cut an edge, just file it a bit to get the roughness out and touch up the edges. I used some Honda Graphite touchup paint on a few things and it matches really well.

So, I just need to control the three case fans (20cm+20cm+12cm).
I want to know if the XIGMATEK MONO COOL can manage this 3 fans. In its specs says that it supports 3 fans, but I really doubt it because it is really cheap ...
http://www.xigmatek.com/product.php?productid=94
What are your opinions?
Thank you so much in advance wink.gif

Yeah, that's cheap all right. Were you trying to avoid putting something in the front of the case?

I think this is a far better choice:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811995074

That's if you really only want three fan controls (you can get a 4 or 6 fan controller for about the same price that will allow for future expansion). This is only $20, which is pretty cheap, and it will match the front of the case somewhat because it uses a mesh as the front of the fan controller. I think it does 0-12V and PWM. Personally, I don't like having to reach inside the case or to the rear of the case to adjust my fans.

Here's one for $24 that will also match the front of the case:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811992007

And it will control five fans so you will have two spare spots.

Did you plug your pump into the CPU_FAN header? If there's noting plugged in there you will get that error. You can go into BIOS and disable it. I think you should plug your pump into the CPU_FAN header where it's supposed to be. Check the header control in BIOS and see if you can reduce the threshold for the error. Mine goes down to about 300 RPM so almost any fan or pump I use will not generate that error. You don't want to plug the pump into Molex. Use the CPU_FAN header as I mentioned. You have to have something plugged into that header to avoid the error (or you have to disable that header).

Try both, do temp tests, then decide which to keep. Just remember, if you pull air into the rad you may have dust issues.

I was going to keep it simple, but then you came up with this gem.

1. Intake - Cooler CPU temps, but warmer GPU and chipset temps. Dust is an issue.

2. Exhaust - Cooler GPU and chipset temps but warmer CPU temp. Dust is not an issue.

This is a simplification, as other factors come into play, but saying "theres no reason why you'd want it as intake." is not a true statement.

"Heat Rises" has nothing to do with it. Fans easily overcome the propagation of warm air flow., which is a very weak force compared to a fan. Also, if you google it, you'll see the difference between pulling and pushing for a fan is very small. You can have pull exhaust and it will work as well as push within a degree or two depending on the RPM. At some RPMs, pull is actually better.

As mentioned above, it depends on if you want cooler CPU temps, or cooler chipset/GPU temps. In either case the difference will only run about 3c.

You should really read up on this. There are benefits to both, and tradeoffs for both. It's not as cut and dry as "i would never have the fans for a cpu cooler as intake".

It looks to me like a few of the people offering advice should read up on the topic before offering it. Sorry if I'm being a little blunt, but this topic is continually coming up and I would have thought the veteran people in this thread would have understood it by now.

In fact, Corsair George has made a case for using the top H100 as intake and the front fan (200mm) as exhaust if your GPU exhausts inside the case. Heat rising really has nothing to do with it.

Is there a mod guide to be able to put 2 120MM fans in the front? I hate that huge 200MM fan.

None of the holes line up.



Cut the red and drill the yellows. Lol. You'll have to mark the where abouts of the holes. You can just ziptie the fans together.

I've done just that on my case. You just have to take note of the 15mm spacing between fans. Google 120mm fan templates if you want something to print to scale and use as a, well, template. (:

Man, that looks tough, I might just wait until I go water and then do that project. I was planning to put a 240 rad there that's why.
