Best fan arrangement for my system?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So, I have 2 top AIO exhaust fans, pulling air from the case up through the radiator and out of the top of the case. 1 back intake fan, and 2 front intake fans. Is this the best fan placement/AIO placement and intake/exhaust arrangement? BTW the GPU has 3 fans.

Your GPU is going to have a ton of heat spill with the only exhaust being the radiator fans so you'll be pushing a lot of warm air through there. I'd make the rear fan another exhaust, that would cut down on a lot of the hot air that goes through the rad because as air is drawn in from the front, it will push the rising heat out the back.

I've been told that I shouldn't have the AIO on exhaust?

Dust, a crap ton of dust. Probably wont hurt GPU cooling, but not beneficial either.

So what do you recommend?

assuming the front has a dust filter, i would keep everything you have but set the back side fan to exhaust at the lowest rpm it can go, this way you will keep positive pressure and it will help out in GPU temps.

AIO's should always be on exhaust because you're pushing air through the rad fins, you don't want to suck it out. Plus, heat rises so using that to your advantage with it set as an exhaust is a favorable set up. In my personal setup I have 3 120mm fans as intakes on the bottom, 3 120mm side exhausts and 2 140mm as exhausts on a 280mm radiator. My GPU has the evga ICX cooler so there is a shit ton of heat spill in the case so that exhaust is necessary to keep the air that goes through the AIO, decently cool.
