antec 902 front 240mm rad airflow

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 


so i made this diagram representing the airflow in my antec 902. wondering if this would be my best bet, or if i should flip intake and exhaust or flip the fans different or something.

Also I'm wondering if the rad will be okay like this, getting cold air from the front two fans and then the gentle typhoons, or if i should just replace the two front case fans with the gentle typhoons and have it like that. basically is the 4 fans in front okay or will it be awkward for the fans and should i just cut it to too. I'd like to keep the 4 cause the two upfront are nice yate loon blue leds and they look nice haha, but im all for getting rid of em if it will be better

edit: except i think I'm retarded as im pretty sure the gpu fans are intake not exhuast like that *****. dont know why i made the arrows like that.

Yeah, the general consensus is that front is intake and rear/top is exhaust; that's further helped by the fact that heat rises. Your PSU is also probably exhaust.

It's best to have rad fans actually attached to the radiator; that's where the static pressure from the GTs can really do their job.
