People kept saying that the hot air will exhaust up the back and sides of the case in the bottom compartment. Im going to leave off the back PSU cover too. I'm honestly not to sure about that, which is why I kept asking about a fan in the extra PSU slot.

So basically, the hot air from the bottom chamber won't really interfere if I use the top 480 as an exhaust, I'm assuming. That's why I'm not sure if I should leave it exhaust or intake.
.

The top 480 as exhaust will not help exhaust the bottom chamber's heat, but you could be right that the PSU fan may be enough, maybe...

It depends on the PSU and how it's cooling fan works. I.E. is it one of the newer PSU's that have passive cooling until it reaches a certain load? Or does it have a full time cooling fan?

Back to the top 480, exhausting hot air through the rad will heat up the coolant, thus making it less efficient for cooling your vital components...

Intake on the top 480 is a better cooling solution, the rear fan as exhaust will be enough... Really!

If the fans are intaking air, the PSU can exhaust air? Correct?

It may work, then again, it depends on how the PSU's cooling fan works...

Some PSU's have passive cooling, until a certain load or temp is reached and then turn on.

Some PSU's have a full time cooling fan...

Oh, I understand that about it not exhausting the bottom chamber through the top rad. And I mean the PSU slot as there are two. My actually PSU will be intake. All of this for a $22 dust filter lol. All the rads in the top compartment will be push pull, so I don't know if that would give better cooling on the top rad being exhaust.

You could have the PSU intaking air from the bottom camber and exhausting it through the back...

See the highlighted in my orig post, it's the answer you're seeking for the top 480...

Thanks, and I apologize for being off topic.

I prefer the PSU not intake all that hot air. What if I were to use this and use 1 or 2 fans and exhaust it out the bottom? Would that be worth it?

It may be a mighty expensive critter trap, but it's the best on going for snaring the elusive "Two legged tubing tweaker". . . . biggrin.gif

It may be...

As long as you have good clearance between floor and bottom of the case, also a clean floor or something on the floor to set it on...

Casters would help bring it off the floor...

Just worried about a dust bowl happening under the cooling fans, then getting sucked back into the bottom rads...

Still have my SM8 on order. But I still can't stop thinking about the likely hood the SM8 will be discontinued or succeeded any time soon?
