Fan Setup For New System (PICS)

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I just put together this new system, now I am wanting to make sure I have the cooling part setup correctly.


My setup is.

Corsair XMS3 4GB PC10666 DDR3 1333MHz 4096MB x2
MSI 785GM-P45 Motherboard
AMD Athlon II X4 630 Quad Core CPU
Cooler Master Elite 310 Mid-Tower Case
Corsair TX650W 650W Power Supply
Corsair Hydro H50 CPU Liquid Cooler
EVGA GeForce GTX 460 SE 1GB GDDR5 PCIe


Now on partial load my reading are this.

Video Card is Running at 41c min - 59c Max
Core 1/2/3/4 Min 31c max 39c
Tempatures TMPIN0 29cmin - 35c Max
TMPIN2 40c min - 47c Max

Now, I have the 120mm fan on the back connected to the raditor blowing in to keep the proccesor cooler - I have a 120mm fan in the front behind the panel sucking air out, I have a fan underneath the video card, sucking air out from the room and onto the video card (even tho the card already has a fan) - now I can fit a 180mm or 120mm fan on the panel.. should I have the air come in or go out on the side? or does my setup need changed?

Ignore the horrible wiring, i just put it together im not finished lol.

The total CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute) blowing into the case should be about equal to the total CFM exhausting.

The fans should be placed to provide airflow throughout the case. That's generally intake at the front bottom, and exhaust at the rear top.

And don't forget to figure in the PSU fan too.
