Where to put my new fans on HAF 932

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
What is my best options if I just recieved my 4 120mm Ultra powerful Thermalright 2000's stealth silent fans... on the infamous Haf 932... I was thinking.... Remove the stock 120mm back exhaust and replace... (3 left) take of the side stock fan... and put ALL 3 right there and keep the stock top exhaust fan AS i have heard that its actual quite good and to replace some of the stock fans int eh 932 is a waste of money... as they are bigger fans and move more air quieter....?!

The 230mm fans move around 110CFM each, the 140mm fan moves around 60CFM. Those Thermalrights move around 80CFM, right?

I'd replace the 140mm rear exhaust fan and the top 230mm exhaust fan. You may want to position the new top fans to intake air, though.

You want to channel the heat out the back of the case. With the top fans set as exhaust fans, the majority of the heat from your GPU, drives, and South Bridge are blown across your NB/VRMs (the places that heat up the most), and then pushed through your HSF. This occurs before the air can be sucked out of your case. With the top fans set as intake fans, a ton of cool air is pushed over your Northbridge and through your CPU, lowering your temps quite a bit. All the hot air is then expelled out the back of your case.

It seems strange, but it works.

wonderful so witht he 4 fans im getting.. I should use one to replace the rear exhaust stock fan.. and put the 3 on top and intake fans... and have everything blowing in except the one powerful exhaust fan pulling all the heat out immediately... this is the most efficient method with the 932?

It works the best for me! And I've always heard ehume promoting this method!

Edit:
I used to have a HAF 932, I'm just using that DD Torture Rack temporarily.
