Thermaltake Chaser MK-1 Airflow

Good day everyone,

My GPU has been running a little on the hot side for a while and I finally bought some fans for the side and bottom to alleviate the issue. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to have helped that much so I assume something is wrong with my airflow/fan setup.

I usually run my GPU at 150% tdp and 100% core voltage with MSI Afterburner, no clock speed OC though. With those settings I hover from 83-87C at max load and Idles around 40-50C. If I run with default settings (100% tdp), it runs around 74-77C at max load.

My current airflow/fan setup is currently as follows:
Top = 200mm 800rpm exhaust with top cover
Rear = 140mm 1000rpm exhaust with no filter, not sure on the rpm for this one
Front (at the bottom) = 200mm 800rpm intake with filter
Bottom = 120mm 1500rpm (new fan) intake with filter
Side = 200mm 800rpm (new fan) intake with filter

I've flipped my PSU so that the fan is facing the floor to see if that helped as it was previously the other way around, though I'm not certain if that's intake or exhaust? I'm thinking it's an intake. As for my CPU cooler fan is facing the front as an intake though I'm unsure about this too.

Specs:
CPU: i7-7700K 4.2GHz stock speed
GPU: Aorus Gigabyte 1080ti Xtreme
RAM: 2x8GB DDR4-1333
PSU: Thermaltake M850W Smart
Case: Thermaltake Chaser MK-1

Going from there, what would be your suggested fan setup to lower my GPU temps to maybe around 75C?

I suggest you look at and read the link below to basic guide of how airflow works and how to optimize case airflow.
https://www.overclock.net/forum/22319249-post5.html


As it says, cooling intake air needs to be at or near room temp, so placing sensor of cheap wire lead indoor/outdoor thermometer in front of cooler fan allows you to monitor air temp into component.

Ambient air temp is usually around 25.5-26.5C, but it gets hotter the longer I play obviously.

EDIT: Also, I've read through the guide but I'm not sure I'm understanding the whole concept. I have a sensor that I can place on the outside of the case near the side fan. (one of these https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B06...?ie=UTF8&psc=1)

Your sensor is in the readout case and monitors temp there.



Below is thermometer with remote sensor, like shown in post 5

I don't understand what you mean by readout case.

Also, I don't really have a thermometer like that one nor floral wire.

I could buy these I suppose but is all this really necessary to figure out a good setup for fans?

Not trying to diss any ideas at all, just asking.

EDIT: If I really need this, would something like this: https://www.amazon.ca/HDE-Aquarium-T...te%2Caps%2C209 or this: https://www.amazon.ca/Toronto-MooseL...s%2C209&sr=8-8 be good?

One of the ones you linked to would be fine, but you can get similar for much less money if your switch your search to price low to high.



Here is link to indoor/outdoor temps (outdoor is probe) for $1.59 including post.

Making one up similar to mine is not at all complicated. Any wire stiff enough to hold sensor in front of fan is fine. If it is not insulated, wrap it in tape so if it touches somehting it can't short anything out and damage your system.

I guess I will get one of those with floral wire then.

So I'm just supposed to put the sensor hanging under the GPU fan or something?

The reason for insulated wire and cloths pin is so wire can be bent to position sensor in airflow into cooler, be it GPU cooler or CPU cooler. So yes, positioning sensor near center of fan is good.

I got the thermometer but am missing floral wire. Do I need cloth's pin too? Would just floral wire and regular tape be good enough?

I use clothspin to hold one end in place by clipping it onto something in computer. The stiff wire wrapped from clothpin to sensor is so I can bend wire and have sensor stay in place.



Do it however you want.
