HAF 932 airflow question

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I currently have my rad on the top with 6 fans in p/p (spire 1600 rpm) and i have them set currently as an Intake to get the best possible temps as i thought, but i only have 1 exhaust and thatd the rear fan, the front fan is intakle as well.. would i get better temps if i set my rad to exhaust?

Hmmmm

Pulling hot air down

when hot air rises.

just put it to exhaust. Temps might be 1-3C higher...
but buy some more fans! keep the air flowing.

Seems like if your rad is intake for your case all the heat it should be dissipating out is going right into your system?

I would think you would have side panel (4x fans or 1 x 200mm) intake, front intake, and rear/top exhaust, just like any regular setup.

Best way to tell is to try it both ways

i know im screwing with the airflow of the case, but everything but the board is watercooled, so airflow aint that imporant, but i am having problems with mny cpu temps now that i added the 580 to the loop, gained like 7*c and i can't fold cpu and gpu at the same time now or the cpu gets to aroun 80*c and gpu 60*c

HAF 932 Black don't have any fans on its sidepannel its just a large clear window.

You need more rad space for an overclocked i7 and a 580.

Throw a 240 into the mix in front of the drive cages. If that works.

Agree, the heat air should comes out of your case and from radiator, but you are using the heat air of the radiator to "cool" your rig. Sounds not good idea for me, I have seen many case like yours with the radiator as exhaust.

Ah, well I still think you should have positive pressure. Like you said airflow inside the case isn't all that important. You only need minimal air to cool the other components on the mobo and other parts.

Now I'm thinking if you had the rad set to exhaust, that only leaves a front intake, and a rear that is typically exhaust. I'm sure your rad is going to be pulling a ton of air whichever way, so if you only had 1 intake that is probably going to make a negative air pressure setup (less air coming in than going out, like a suction). Even if you had both the front and rear intakes, providing air across the components and ultimately feeding airflow to the rad, that still might not be enough for a positive system..

The way you have it now though, the rad pulls all fresh air from outside, dumps warmer air inside, then gets swirled around and eventually exhausted out the back. Maybe try setting all fans to exhaust and leave rad to intake, before switching the rad to exhaust and leaving the others?

your keeping hot air in, rad should exhaust air..
allow for cooler air to move into the case from the side
