Hi all,

I will be moving my system to a Meshify C and I'm contemplating what fan setup I should go with.

I've made some illustrations that show my ideas. The fans I have at my disposal are:

- Arctic P12 PST 2x

- Included case fans 2x

- Random Cooler Master fan I have laying around (probably swapped for a P12 at some point) 1x

- Corsair Hydro H75 in push/pull configuration

I'm leaning towards 2 or 5, maybe 4.

Any ideas and opinions are welcome :).

Cheers

I like 4 most, but put the top fan as exhaust as well

Use higher static pressure for intake + aio, so 3 p12 in front.

no. 1 is best imo

All reds are exhaust.

This is what I have now. The thing I'm "afraid of" with this one is that the air is exhausted by the top fan so the AiO doesn't get enough fresh air. No idea whether this makes sense though :P.

Also I am planning to have the P12s in front in any setup, since there's a pretty thick filter in the front of the case.

I would go 4 but without the rear fan. My reasoning is that I like the idea of positive pressure and don't want to be sucking in air from the back of the case around the PCI slots.


If you're interested in a product please download and read the manual first.

Don't forget to tag or quote in your reply if you want me to know you've answered or have another question.

1 without top fan. You don't need that in there. You could even do rear intake with filter and have 2 top exhausts.

I like #1.

 

A balanced approach is usually best, maybe with a slight trend toward positive pressure. Remember that wherever you put your H75, you're going to get good CPU cooling (it's not going to be starved for air by another fan.) Knowing that, you next consideration is how to achieve the best MB and GPU cooling. I think with 3 fans bringing in fresh air from the front toward the GPU, you will achieve this. Adding a 6th fan will make very little difference.

Now if your CPU does run hotter than you would like, then switch to #4, but your GPU could suffer a bit in the new layout.

I have it setup up with setup 1 right now. The CPU is absolutely fine, it doesn't reach 45C (at least during gaming). Not quite happy with the GPU yet though, it gets to 75C which is a bit warmer than I would like. I'm playing with the though of swapping the three 120mm fans for two 140mm ones. The fan that came with the case is absolutely terrible as intake tbh. The P12s seem to do fine, so maybe I'll get two P14s and then I can put the entire shroud on there.

It sounds like you have good temps. A GPU at 80C or below is normal during gaming. Oh, you might be able to shave off another degree or two with better fans, but it's unlikely to make your components last any longer.

I think I got a little spoiled with my previous 1060 that wouldn't reach 70C under constant 100% loads. I would mostly like to shave off a degree or 2 since I noticed that when I crank everything up and have the card at +/-72C the clock speed is much more stable. Right now it jumps between 1890 and 1935, sometimes 1950. When it's at 72 degrees it's mostly 1935 or 1950, only dropping to 1920 sometimes. When I increase the temperature limit or the power limit the card immediately gains a couple degrees and can go up to 80C.
