Hi! I'd like to build a machine in an Ncase M1 with:
A noctua NH-U9S cooler
A blower style GTX 970
A SilverStone SX500-LG
I would like to achieve a positive air pressure which would intake fresh air from the bottom of the case and exhaust it through the top. I believe this vertical flow would be good as it would follow and therefore be enhanced by the natural rising of warmer air.
My questions are:
Is this vertical bottom-up airflow a good idea?
If so, is it ok to intstal the CPU cooler in a vertical orientation in push towards the top?
Can I add a second fan in pull in the CPU cooler? (does it fit?)
Can I add one NF-S12A on top of the case, above the cooler (even with a second fan in pull on the CPU cooler)?
Can I create the positive pressure with two NF-S12A on the bottom?
Any comments and suggestions very highly appreciated!
