Update case for better airflow - Page 2

post #11 of 51
Thread Starter 
Thanks a lot for your help!

I will get myself the CM690II Advanced, but don't you mean to take out my old 120mm antec exhaust fan to install to blow to my CPU and GPU in the new case, or do you really mean the GPU and PSU?

And what do you mean with a 120 mm fan with a screen or filter, what does it do? And add it to the side panel, do you mean as an intake fan to blow air on my GPU?

Pictures of ur current case/fan set-up would be a great fan. I really want to make my computer run a lot cooler.

Now do you also advice me, when i get the new case, to buy the schythe mugen II cpu cooler? I not tend to overclock my cpu since my MOBO (H67) doesn't support it... Or will the better airflow be sufficient enough for a cooler cpu with standard cpu cooler?

After rading all of this, I would look into the CoolerMaster hyper 212+ for your CPU cooler, Its cheap, and works great for stock clocks! the only reason im getting rid of mine is cus I want a nice big OC ill get some pics of my rig and show you how the fans can be set up, you can exp. with it alot, not need to go crazy with it if your no going to OC...unless you just wanna have some fun with it

Increased airflow from a side panel fan would absolutely assist with keeping your gpu/chipset/cpu running cooler, and an aftermarket cpu cooler would be a better choice over stock. (only stock intel coolers I've seen that are decent come with the hexcore processors)
You'd be better off with a Hyper 212 as posted above over the Mugen.

You could use one of these on your intake fans to minimize dust intake.

so basically the CM690II advanced has a front inttake fan, one top outtake and one back outtake. Just adding 1 120mm intake fan on the side panel that will blow air to the GPU will result in a perfect, well airflowed, case? It's also possible to hang up 2 120mm intake fans on the side panel, will this be even better?

which extra fan(s) do you advice me to get then?

at 5:00 you see the guy adding something there to improve airflow, what exactly is that and does it come standard with the case or do you have to buy seperately?

At 5:00, that's a radiator for water cooling.

I'd recommend Cooler Master R4's for case fans...they push a decent amount of air and come in led and non led versions. (and they're relatively cheap) 2 on the side panel will of great help.

Pushing more air into the case will also assist with keeping dust out as long as your intake fans have filters. (positive air pressure...it'll also push trapped stale air out)

Ok, so adding two of those fans on the side panel, and what can I use my old 120mm exhaust Tricool fan for?
post #20 of 51
Hold onto it as a spare in case one of your stock case fans go?

(or install it on the bottom of the case as another intake)
