Wanted to do this for shiggles, I basically put it on my heatsink with masking tape lol. My temps were higher by 4c on idle and 8c higher on load. haha. I took it off after and put back my normal 92mm fan on.

There are two giant fans inside that barely cover the heatsink.

So you installed a push / pull and got worse temps? You did it wrong then.

My heatsink is only supposed to use 92mm fans, lol. And yes there is a rear exhaust fan, I don't see how you can't see it. lol

lets try

is there a fan on the rear of the case

is there a fan on the back of the case

is there a fan where one belongs on the back of the case


omg what case is that it looks bigger than my haf 932

as for the tape and fans... maybe you should have taped a couple of delta fans on it ... more flow more cooling !!!!

And yes, it is bigger than your HAF 932. In fact, many cases are bigger

id say its about 120mm+ larger then your haf lol and cheaper

anyways i dont see a rear exhaust fan i see the big side one witch is prolly killing air flow i see what looks to be a 80mm done by the gpu maybe lower
then the 2 large fans on your 92mm heat sink
the yellow circle looks like a lil light is there but i cant see a fan lol

Without the side panel 120mm fan my airflow is incredibly bad. I took more pics so you can understand how airflow works in my case. Ive taken incense and lit it to see where the smoke goes and this is exactly how it works. The arrows that point below the cathode on the bottom get channeled to my PSU to help cool it more efficiently.


Exhaust 120mm fan:

If you get two fans too close to each other, one will interfere with the other. That is why ghettogeddy asked if you had a rear exhaust fan. Since you do, we know why your temps went up.

Remove that rear exhaust fan and try again. Better: remove the fan and the grill behind it. The your pull fan will act as a case exhaust. See item 2. in my sig.
