Fan setup

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Running a Phanteks eclipse p350x, all fans are Corsair  LL series rgb 120mm, Corsair h100i pro rgb, fans look great from the one side not so much in the other and having spend almost $200 on case fans I’d love to be only seeing the good part but to do so I have to have them all exhaust will this setup be good in the long run? Pics for reference and fan setup. Adding one more in the rear (Best Buy only has four) and possibly 2 more pulling the rad as well.

 

(rad is in front pushing out top fans are pushing out as well rear fan will too)

You can decide for yourself, and in Linus' words "your mileage may vary." Also, when mounted normally, front fan RGB can be seen through the front panel, but I can see your front panel is solid. If you add 2 more to the radiator, you can save a buck using normal fans instead of $25 per RGB fans, since you won't see them anyways.

Just watched that one trying to figure out if my setup is gonna be ok have an rx580 in there as well planning for another one in the future, temps seem pretty good so far even pushing it playing battlefield v on ultra at 1080, I’m going for a very clean rgb build all fans are controlled by a Corsair commander pro

I would like to know your temps. While exhaust is better for cooling, all exhaust doesn't sound like good idea. LTT video was about dust, not performance. Their earlier, often referenced video, also doesn't test difference between all intake and all exhaust.

As in? Numbers? Sorry, if this sounds intrusive. I use these threads as source for anyone wondering same things in future.
