  1. Well I'll try two front and two on top. Trying out two fans on the top as long as temperatures don't go high won't do any damage to my computer right so it might as well not hurt to try it while I've got the five fans and if there's no difference or an even worse difference I'll send them back and get two better 140mm fans.
  2. Thank you for the help but from the forums I've asked this question on most people said do three front intake and use the other two as top exhaust. Now, should I only get front fans then? Because if so I'm going to send these back and just get two better/higher quality/higher airflow/higher static pressure/etc. fans for intake.
  3. Haven't gotten my new cpu cooler yet but I got the fans. I installed two 140mm fans as exhaust on the top of the case but it didn't make a difference! In fact my cpu is acting just like it did and my gpu is actually idling at 31 to 33 now when it used to idle at 27 to 29. Also I couldn't install my front case fans because I just cannot remove the front case. I looked up two videos and seen that they put the glass part back on after installing the fans. Is there a way I can get longer screws or something and mount them from the reverse side? Or if I can't should I send back the fans and just get two higher quality 140mm case fans with more airflow, static pressure, etc. And just make the fan closer to the front an intake and leave the one closer to the rear as an exhaust fan? Thank you very much. I should probably look up how to undervolt my cpu because just running steam and chrome goes up to the low 80s temp wise.
  4. I have no front intake fans yet. Using these arctic 140mm pwm value case fans. Using an nf-a12x25 pwm for rear exhaust.

  6. Ok Here's what I've ordered. https://imgur.com/a/VLNs79r orders.bmp
  7. Yeah I'm going to have to get one with a backplate. Plus it seems like I have no way to open the front of my case so I only have the top and rear exhaust fans. I could probably put two exhaust fans on top or maybe an intake towards the front most part of the top of the case and an exhaust fan towards the furthest rear part of the top of the case as well. I am just using the stock cooler on top of a 40x40mm innovation cooling graphite pad. I'm getting up to 76 celsius just by browsing the internet and doing college work. I've optimized windows 10 following a guide from Tech Yes City and have absolutely nothing else running in the background. It seems like I cannot open the front of my case which is a bummer. Until I get two 140mm fans for the top (Or since I can't open the front maybe I'll get 200mm fans now an intake for the front most part of the top of the case and an exhaust for the furthest rear part of the case) Until I get the 140/200 top case fans I stuck the fan that came with my case in the middle of the top as an exhaust fan. It's doing ok. Don't think it's helping temperatures much though.
  8. Would this advice I got on another forum be good as well? You can also look at the Scythe Fuma 2, its an excellent cooler as well but it's slight harder to install and takes up more room. On the plus side it comes with a backplate and currently a 5% off coupon on Amazon. I would still swap 120x25 fans with the cooler and your Noctua A12 exhaust fan.I would still go with three solid 140mm fans over two "better" 140mm fans for lower temps. If you want to "upgrade the fans" some options to look atNoctua P-14 redux, the 900rpm 3-pin is silent and offers very good performance while the PWM versions offer up to 1200rpm, 1500rpm, or 1700rpm performance if needed. All are around $15. You can look at the Noctua A14 & 15 lines but having owned both series of fans mentioned the A14 & 15 primarily offer more goodies (splitter, rubber fan mounts, low noise adapters, etc.,) then necessarily better performance then the redux series.Phanteks SP - series - I've owned four of these both led and non led. They are well built and performance wise they are great but they are loud compared to Noctua, you here a "motor whine" noise even at 900rpm. I'm a noise freak so I found it irritating and replaced them with Noctua fans.If you want to buy a better 140mm fan I would put that one over the HSF for outake and use two solid 140mm fans for front intake
  9. No I was using the fan that came with the case. However my gpu temps are pretty much nigh identical with the stock cooler both with the noctua rear fan and the fan that came with the case so I'm not worried. Yeah I'm thinking the front fan will be intake and the top fan will be exhaust. 140mm is probably the best I could get to fit properly in my case.
  10. I was using gpu-z 2.26. I already sent back the cooler.
  11. I already have an exhaust fan. The rear by the i/o shield. That's the one you're talking about with rear exhaust fan right? Just got to find two good 140mm fans. I'm more worried/focused on the cpu cooler, paste, and replacement bracket/backplate/etc. for it first though. Then I'll worry about the case fans. Plus I had my one rear exhaust case fan running at max speed which is 2100rpm. Didn't help with the higher gpu temperatures with the new cooler.
  12. I used the noctua nf-u12s. Maybe the excess heat was caused by the heatsink? I moved back to the stock cooler. Temps range between 33 celsius idle (up to 42 after a while). And just doing some college word processing and web browsing it sometimes revved up to 75 celsius. I was using a non mounted stock wraith spire on top of a 40x40mm innovation cooling graphite thermal pad. I know that's dangerous because it can slip off and ruin my system but I was trying it out. I want the thermal grizzly because I heard it's basically the best non electrically conductive thermal paste and I was going to use that because that way if I utilize too much paste it won't fry the other components.
  13. Right now I'm looking at getting a third-party am4 backplate from amazon, two 140mm case fans, and a new cpu cooler. I only have $100 for all this. I see that the am4 backplate on amazon doesn't work too well with stock wraith coolers but I'm planning on getting an aftermarket cooler. I got $100 in refund/account balance on amazon so I want to get this stuff on amazon. What I'm looking forward to getting is thermal grizzly cryonaut, two 140mm case fans (one for the top of the case and one for the front. Mobo only supports three fans and one is already being used for the rear exhaust fan.), and a cpu cooler. The questions I have is: When installing the two case fans, what would be the best way to use them? Should they both be exhaust fans, intake fans, or should one be an intake fan and one be an exhaust fan? Also what's the best position to install them at? I'm thinking center for both. Last time I tried a tower cpu cooler my gpu got about 10 celsius warmer than it did with the stock downdraft/top down cpu cooler. Will the two fans I'm getting help mitigate that? Did I install the cpu cooler wrong? I got a stock rtx 2070 super so the fans can get a bit loud with temperature and the cooling isn't the best. Yes I should have gotten an aftermarket version but oh well. What is the best cpu cooler I can get for under $50? Will this be sufficient enough to secure/mount the cooler? (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07C2BXDQM/ref=psdc_2998409011_t1_B0168H15DO) (https://www.amazon.com/Mounting-Plate-AMD-Socket-AM4/dp/B06X9VF8TN?ref_=ast_bbp_dp) This was my first build. I have a ryzen 5 3600x, 32gb 2x16 ddr4 3200 t-force vulcan ram, 256gb nvme ssd, stock founders edition rtx 2070 super, asus tuf gaming x570 wifi board, evga 650w 80+ gold gq psu, a deepcool matrexx 50 case, and a nf-a12x25 2000rpm pwm fan for the rear exhaust case fan which is my only case fan. I hope I didn't do any permanent damage. What else can I do? Could reseating the cpu help with the heat? I spent like $1300 on this computer and it ran fine for the first month. Should have never redid the cooler. It was working OK before.
  14. Fixed it. I ddu and rolled back to the 425.31 driver. Wow nvidia. Wow.
