Every Case Fan Has a Radiator...Bad?

Hi All -

I am in no way new to water cooling I just haven't upgraded my loop in a while. I am adding an additional 240mm of rad space but that now means that every fan on the case has a radiator on it.

My setup is in an Enthoo Pro M:

240mm Rad up front with stock phanteks fans (intake)
240mm rad up top with static pressure optimized fans (exhaust) (cant think of fan names right now)
120mm rad in back with the same static pressure fan (exhaust)


My question is 2 fold. 1) is it bad that I don't have a ton of air movement when my VRM's are still air cooled? 2) this is technically a negative pressure case, would it hurt to turn my 120mm into an intake having only a single 240mm exhaust?

I searched and did not find my specific problemo so thanks in advance!

Hi,
Doubt there is a positive/ negative pressure thing
There is only dust verses filtered

I don't subscribe to radiators being exhausted through.

Cases are open in the back for a reason
Top and front are filtered for a reason

So that somewhat answers part 2 of my question. You would recommend 480mm of intake and 120mm of exhaust?

Hi,
If the 120mm is on the back yeah exhaust or remove it completely it's not likely doing much anyway.

Cool thanks. I’ll keep it as it’s still providing some cooling for the loop. I can easily turn the top fans to intake as I have to tear my loop apart annuway in mid March to SLI my graphics cards.

Question 1 still stands. That’ll be pumping even more heat into the case

The biggest difference will be in gpu temps if you're still air cooling your card. They need a fresh supply of air. If it's in your loop, nevermind.... You should be fine. If you find the temps climbing too much, remove one of your side panels.

Hi,
It's fictional that rad heat is greater than mother board/ ram/... produce
With gpu's on water that is also a plus

Thanks. I will make sure to keep an eye on my temps over the next few months.
