COOLERMASTER HAF 922

Intakes
200mm Front Intake (110CFM)
120mm Front Intake (Bought a COOLERMASTER 4 in 3 HDD bay. The top 2 5.25†bays are occupied by optical drives, and the bottom 3 by this) (69CFM)
200mm Side Intake (110CFM)
120mm Bottom Intake (69CFM)

Exhausts
200mm Top Exhaust (110CFM)
120mm Rear Exhaust (69CFM)
EVERCOOL SB-F2 Case Blower (42CFM) located at the bottom taking 2 PCI slots
EVERCOOL SB-F1 Case Blower (42CFM) located on top of the video card with the intake fan facing down to draw heat off of it, taking up 1 slot.

So is this enough (I’d hope so) and is the configuration correct? Should I reverse any of the fans?

Also as a side note, how it is possible the F1 and F2 are listed as the same CFM, does anyone know offhand? I would think the F2 would draw more air?

Thanks again!
Thats pretty decent set up. the down side to a HAF case is they suck once you try to upgrade fans, not alot options for 200mm fans. However, that set up should provide pleny of airflow. What OC's do you have on your set up? and what temps are you seeing at full load on the CPU,mobo and GPU? with that info we can see if you need to improve your airflow any, although I dought it I'll bet body parts your temps are fine.

Thread Starter 
HWMonitor shows temps around 40C at most unsure how accurate that is. Also one thing that is bothering me to death is the difference between the SB F1 and SB F2. The F2 takes up 2 PCI slots and rotates about 600RPM faster, yet they have the same 42CFM?!?! Basically I'd like any input on this, because if it is the case that they truly are equal in CFM i'll replace my bottom SBF2 with an F1, just to save a PCI slot for whatever down the road.

Thanks!

I use mesh PCI slot cover's for my case, I think the slot blowers are another gimik If you dont have accsess to mesh slot covers, just remove them. As for the temps, need to know what Idle temps are, for mobo,cpu,gpu. aswell as load temps. use Prime95, or intel burn test to get the mobo and CPU to load, and for the GPU load up a game and play for a while or run some kind of bench program, but if your highest temp is 40c(I'm going to assume thats a core temp) your good, unless thats your core idle temp lol.
