H70 in Storm Scout Air Flow?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I recently installed an H70 in my Storm Scout Case and because the fins on the EVGA X58 I couldn't set the fans up in the optimal push pull configuration.

Here is how I have it set up right now:



Its idling at 32 and gets up to 52 under full load. Could I arrange the fans differently for better air flow?

Here is a template if it makes it easier to explain.



Thanks for any help

1 fan on the rad is not push pull
both fans have to be on the rad
one pushing air into the rad and the other one pulling it from the fan that is pushing into the rad

Thanks for the response.
I know that it is not a push pull right now. Unless I get some thinner fans there is no way I can mount a fan on the other side of the radiator. This is the problem I am having.

My question is about the flow through my case right now with this current setup until I can get some slim fans to got on either side of the radiator.

the two fans on the side panel should be either blowing the same direction or use only one.

you're pretty much recirculating air.

THIS

Also, which fans are you using and do you know the CFMs that they put out? If the pressure coming in is the same as the outflow, then the air in your case is pretty much stagnate. I have my Scout set up with negative pressure (more air leaving the case than coming in). Not sure if that setup will work in your case, but my temps are awesome. 28c idle, 44c full load with an ambient of 25c. Different CPU, but the difference in temps shouldn't be too far from yours, especially if you're running an H70. Oh, and I scrapped the stock side window and custom made my own with only one side fan opening.

EDIT: I just remembered something someone told me about installing side fans in this case. I wanted to do like you had yours set up (one in and one out), but they said that if they were set up that way, it would disrupt the airflow of one another and basically become pointless to have them. I never tested this, but I could see how this would make sense, especially since the way this case is setup it would also possibly be disrupting your GPUs fan. Hope this helps
