800D + P658XD Fan Setup

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I am looking for the best way to set up my fans in my 800D case. Below is the setup that I am kinda aiming for.

Case layout:

P6X58D Fan Connectors:
P6X58D.jpg

Case Fans by connector:
H50 : PWR_FAN
FAN 1: CPU_FAN
FAN 2: CHA_FAN1
FAN 3: Molex?
FAN 4: Molex?
FAN 5: CHA_FAN2
FAN 6: Molex?
FAN 7: CHA_FAN3

Case fans:
FAN 1: ? Some silent (x<20dbl) 4 pin PWM fan
FAN 2: ? Some silent (x<20dbl) 4 pin PWM fan
FAN 3: Scythe S-FLEX SFF21D 120mm
FAN 4: Scythe S-FLEX SFF21D 120mm
FAN 5: Stock Corsair 140mm
FAN 6: Stock Corsair 140mm
FAN 7: Stock Corsair 140mm

Questions:
1: What fans should I use for fan 1 and 2 H50 Push/Pull?
2: How should I connect all of these fans? Is how I have it ok?

Additional Info:
All fans on the top and back are exhaust.(Fans 1-5)
Fans at the bottom are for intake because of the filter there(Fans 6 and 7)

I might have more questions as I continue to think about this.

1. Depends on on how much airflow you want/how tolerable you are to the sound the fans will be making.
2. Looks fine to me.

On a side-note, I would have every fan set to intake air, except for the rear 140mm.

Forgot to mention this. I intend to make all of the fans at the top exhaust and the one at the back the same. My intake is at the bottom because the case has a filter for dust there.

Set all the top fans so that they intake air. It will lower your temps.

Its better to have more exhaust than intake.
post #6 of 13
It's become quite the fad lately, the recommendation to intake where you would usually exhaust. Kinda like the knee-jerk response of "NH-D14" when people ask what cooler to get. tongue.gif

In many cases, reversing the fans to intake does help, particularly for watercooling. The only way to know for sure is trial and error, because it is not guaranteed.

It's better to have fresh, cool air blowing over that rad, MOSFETS, and NB.

What would be ideal is if the airflow could be directed in through fan 1, the rad, and out from fan 2, and then somehow channeled through fan 5. That would avoid the problem of exhausting heat into the case. Hmm...time to go to Home Depot? biggrin.gif

Hahaha. That would be nice and would do the trick I guess, but I don't think it would be that ascetically pleasing. I really want to have the warm air of the rad leaving the computer as exhaust. This would also avoid the problem of having to get fan filters because of my dusty room.
Back to the question of the fans for the H50. I think that I might need fans with greater CFM than the Scythe S-FLEX SFF21D 120mm [33.5 CFM] to get a good amount of heat off the rad.

For the H50 Rad fans I have a couple of requirements:
Black Color
120mm
Dbl level lower than 40
No LED's
Price is not an issue
Edit: After further consideration I would also like to go with fans that are 4 pin pwm

All of the below are good fans just 3 pin.
The fans that I have been looking at are the following:

Scythe S-FLEX SFF21F
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835185004
Might be a later revision of the fan. Gets more CFM's but is louder.

Scythe SY1225SL12M 120mm
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835185058
A little more CFM and is quiet.

XIGMATEK eXTREME SILENT Series XSF-F1252
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835233084
More CFM quieter than the second but does not have as many reviews on Newegg.

Any preference regarding 25mm thick fans vs. 38mm?
