The dreaded rad / fan layout!

Hey all,

My fittings are finally on their last leg of vacation! So… The age old question. Rad and fan orientation. I know, stay with me here… Specs: Phanteks Enthoo Pro M TG case, XSPC 360x36 rad with trip Deepcool 120 fans and trip Phanteks 140 fans. I will be cooling the CPU and GPU (i5 9600K OC'd & Liquid Devil. CPU upgrade in the near future). First config: Is rad on top with a pull into the case, two 140mm front pulling in air and a single 140 exhausting out the back. Second config: front mount rad pulling in with trip 140 on top pulling in air with open back. Third config: Front mount rad pulling in, trip 140 pushing out on top. Fourth config: Front mount rad pulling in, dual 140 pushing in on top and one out the back. With the future CPU upgrade in mind I want good airflow over the VRM.

That fact that you didn't get flamed here is surprising in 2020. Well I'll do it, get a better case scrub. Easy.

Anyways I like your last setup. Rad on the front pulling air in (intake) along with the fans on top being intakes as well with the rear being the only exhaust. That should set you up for a nice positive pressure airflow. You just need to make sure your intake fans stay are at least to a certain RPM to keep the case full of air to force it out.

No problem man and good luck. Just check the temps. Remember ambient air is KING. So be sure to try and keep cool air flow into the case, especially though the radiator. Be sure to post pictures as well so we can check out your setup.

Not really anything to flame that I can see.......

I got better results in that chassis (it's shared with the EVOLV) with option 3.

Yeah....the little girl hentai avatar is really creeping me out....

Well... Going with the 360 on top with a pull in. Did not like how the rad / fans lined up the front mesh on the case and having to remove the access plate to the lower chamber with the 360. Two 140's on the front pulling in. One 140 on the back as an exhaust. Pics / specs / benchmarks/ OC to follow! Should have something posted on Sunday (Providing it boots!)

Nope... Neg pressure, no filter on the back, And why in Gods name would anyone treat a radiator like that?

Yes....Brain lock on my part, the rear intake is a no go on the EVOLV, but works nicely on the Pro M. This is absolutely the best holistic setup.

Ok....now you made it "dreaded"...... Three 140mm intakes with three 120mm exhaust (which happen to be stifled by a rad) is going to result in negative pressure? Is that really what you wanted to say there?

No dust filter....if only there was a simple solution for that........ https://www.amazon.com/SilverStone-F.../dp/B004GGUASG

Treat a rad like......? Putting it in the most logical and visually appealing place in the case? With ample airflow for effective cooling without a negative affect on other components? Like it's part of a custom loop and not some CLC that needs every ounce of air it can get to work properly? Like that?

Yeah....the little girl hentai avatar is really creeping me out....
