ThrashZone Hi,
Well that's thinking outside the box

Soulpatch Finally have everything assembled. Just need to finish cleaning up the cable routing in the back (have some nice adhesive cable organizers) and of course blow all the dust out of it. I have the hole cut on the outside skin for the three inlets but am waiting on the rubber to go around the inside. Which is why it's not there lol The ducts will ensure that it draws fresh air instead of pulling warm air from inside of the case (path of least resistance). With the skin on it raises the inside temp quite a bit because of the power supply, motherboard, etc. Those ducts really make a difference. Oh, here's a good question...I also posted the same one in the cooling section of the forum. But I'd like to hear all of your opinions and why....

For a push/pull rad system, is it better to have it pulling air out of the case, or fresh air into the case? If you are pulling air out, it's helping to draw fresh cooler air in. But you are pulling pre-warmed air through the rad, making it harder to bring temps down in the coolant.

If you pull air from the outside, you are bringing in cooler air across the rad, but pre-heating the air inside the case and need a really good cross system in order to evacuate it so that it doesn't contribute to warming components.

Now as an engineer I've always been of the frame of mind that pulling cool air across the rad is more important (vehicle application). But after watching videos of people testing the airflow in the 011 dynamic box I set it up to pull air from inside the box across the rad. Because they claimed the air flowed better. But I'm thinking that I'm going to reverse the fans to my initial line of though. It's more important for the coolant to avoid as much saturation as possible and pre-warmed air passing through won't help. So what are your thoughts???

dwolvin I do like enough color that I can find leaks, but yeah- 90% distilled.

That's exactly why I don't run colored coolant of any form. Last thing i need if there is a leak is stained carpet to top it all off. I stick with distilled for simplicity, cost and cleanup lol

I could put a dB meter on my phone if I go through them again. I'm not sure how accurate that would be though. I can generalize and say, that most fans 1500rpm and lower aren't too loud. lol

Those high speed ones(Noctua/Evermax) are LOUD above 1500-2000rpm or so.
