Top Radiator .. Intake or Exhaust? Help on this is appreciated - Page 2

Thread Starter 
Thank you guys! smile.gif
Well i must admit that my mindset was for using intake/intake on the rads... that why i had so many doubts and questions...

I'm going to try and find a way of adding 2 smaller fans on the rear to better exhaust... do some testing ... and see how it goes ...

A 120mm on the back and a 180mm up front should be able to handle the 5x120 intake. Remember that the case fans will be free-flowing so they'll tend to move more air than the rad fans. More exhaust is never a bad thing though.

hmmm... just to make sure... you are saying to use the front and rear as exhaust correct?
( btw, there are ...10 intakes lol ... but in push/pull so... in fact, there are 5 intake points )

Top/Bottom = Intake

Front/Rear = Exhaust

Edit: Intake/intake on the rads, all else as exhaust. Or vice versa.

Ok... i'll do the testing ... leave all rads in intake ... leave only the rear as exhaust ... and then test the front as exhaust too ... that way i'll know the best combo

Thank you all
