Internal Watercooling Antec 900 build log* - Page 2

post #11 of 56
in my opion ur fans should be intaking air and not exhausting in the front
because u want the coldest air possible going through the rad, but the way u have it in that picture it is taking air from inside the case and pulling it out from the front

i do not agree with that design

i understand that u think that ur rad will be pushing to much hot air into the case but its really not that big of a deal i tried it in my antec 1200 and it is better to intake the outside air

but ur build do what u think is best

If you did that you would have a massive pressure imbalance. Having 2 120mm fans and 1 200mm fan intaking and a single 120mm fan exhausting is asking for trouble. Unless you want to leave some PCI slots open and force air over your cards?

That is exactly what I want to do . Who knows whatever gives me the best temperatures is what I am going with.

Haha did you not read the thread the fans are only like that because I am just mocking up the radiator to check for clearance issues. The push pull setup is being replaced with a pull configuration with 2 38mm panaflos and 25mm shrouds. And yes they will be intaking, I dont want my case blowing warm air at me!

Just a little test bench I made to test the gtx260 now that it is back on air. Selling it to a buddy so I just wanted to make sure it was in working order. I am placing an order from performancepcs tomorrow
