Now that you have that restriction out of the way... you must be a happy camper now!
yeah I finally able to figure out whats going on.....don't get me wrong though, adding an optional 200mm fan didn't do much, even with my dust filters taken off. But at least now its not getting WORSE temps like before. It actually dropped a few degrees....not enough to make a worthwhile difference, but hey it looks cool with all those LEDs....LOL...here are my results, dust filters taken out on all runs
STOCK = 78C
Rear Exhaust, Front Intake = 77C
Rear Exhaust, Front Exhaust = 76C
Rear Intake, Front Intake = 76C
I find it weird that doing BOTH intakes on top, gave me pretty good temps....but I decided not to go with it because to me thats just way too much intake and way too little exhaust...I am sure in the summer time it will give me problems....with ambient temps reaching very high in southern california
Btw, I still have three xigmatek 140mm fans blowing from my 5.25 bays....they are zip tied there and I don't plan on moving them...haha
