The [Official] Thermalright Silver Arrow / SB-E Club - Page 253

post #2521 of 3848
Thanks for that, Ill be ordering 1 or 2. The thing I hate about the ASRock board is that only 1 of the chassis fan headers supports the notion of a target temp. The other will only allow me to set a speed level. I really wanted to control intake separate from exhaust so I could balance it all pretty easily.

Im also in the hunt for some smaller PSU cables....modular is nice, except when you only need 1 SATA power connection but the only way to do it is use the included cable that is 2' long with 2 or 3 other power connectors that go unused. Tucking all that in is a pain!

As long as your intakes provide more CFM than exhausts you shouldn't need to adjust them. They will balance themselves. "All that goes in must come out Grasshopper. wink.gif I find it more of an issue to balance case intake to CPU and/or GPU demand and still have enough case airflow to move all the heat out... which is why all fans ramp up and down at same time. CPU needs more airflow/fan rpm, so does case.

Guys, I have a Silver Arrow and wanna join the club!

What is the best setup I can do with only 4 ty-140 fans in my cm690II advanced?

I was thinking of using the middle and pull fan only (replacing my 120mm exhaust fan) and the other two fans as front and top intakes.
What do you guys think?

I would go front and middle on cooler with rear exhaust fan.
Add one fan in bottom 3x 5.25 bays as it will blow directly at cooler
Change normal front fan.
Add case bottom intake fan.

3x intakes: 2x in front and 1 in bottom.
1x exhaust: in back.

Hook them all up PWM on 2 Gelid PWM splitters using CPU fan socket with CPU fan as master and you should be golden. Should be able to idle about 6-700rpm and ramp up to whatever is needed to keep CPU cool. For me that is 1000rpm with CPU 48-52c max @ 100% (920@3.55GHz)

The thing is I don't wanna use 120mm fans if possible...I do have a low rpm 120mm as a rear exhaust atm, and front and middle fans in the SA.
With that nasty tricool as the 5.25 bay intake (I have a dvd/r drive at the top bay), no bottom intakes though.
Perhaps I can fit a ty140 there and another one where the tricool is currently. I'll give your setup a try, and see if I can discard the 120mm fans at all. tongue.gif
Thanks!

I was assuming you would use the 4x TY-140 fans you asked about using in the places I suggested. At least the 2x in front and 1 in bottom.

My avatar in my system. I'm running 2x 120mm FN053 front intake and a TY-140 bottom intake with 2x 120 FN053 rear exhaust. Can't see why your case won't cool as good as mine with similar fans in similar layout.. and your case will take 140mm in front... mine won't... yet.

Wishing mine would take more 140's, I'm beginning to love the sound signature of the BitFenix 140s at ~10v. Very gentle sounding case- until I start folding. rolleyes.gif

140 fans like the Spectre pros or ty-140 are awesome.
I like the low pitched motor noise which is almost nill, and at 800rpm they're virtually silent whilst having decent airflow.
I'll fool around with all the fans I have till I find the best results noise and temp wise.
Luckily by then my thermal paste will be cured.

Dude! Does your SA fit nicely into the case?
I've got the windowed model and the fans scratch the window and create awful vibration noise sadsmiley.gif

IF I can't fix it, I'll go Snorkle.gif
