Question about Azzo Solano 1000 airflow.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi everybody, this is my first post and the computer in my sig is not completely built yet. I have the Corsair h70 and I was wondering if I install it with a push pull configuration into the case and add a 120mm fan to the bottom next to the psu for exhaust if that would be good for air circulation. I would have the 2 front fans, the side fan, and the Corsair fans blowing into the case, then the top and bottom fans for exhaust. I am personally thinking that the intake fan air should collide enough to make it easy for the exhaust fans to clear out but I am in no way an expert on aerodynamics so I am coming to you for help. Thanks a lot in advance.

Some thoughts:
CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute) intake should about equal CFM exhaust. It it doesn't, your fans are just working against each other.

Blowing air from the rad into the case just heats up the case
Blowing air from the case through the rad just heats up the water.
Remote mount the rad and blow room air through it.

Most cases are about 2 cubic feet in volume, so even a low air low like 50 CFM will change the air in the case 25 times per minute. The problem is dead spots inside the case, usually around the video card(s) and under the mobo.
You can add fans INSIDE the case to direct airflow to these areas. An old overclocker's trick is to cut a hole in the motherboard mounting plate (right under the CPU mount) and add a fan there to get some air flow UNDER the motherboard,

Thanks a lot for the advice. My only minor issue with this case is that it doesn't have access to the back of the CPU. Cutting my own sounds like a good idea.
