Help with fan set up.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I have a phanteks p350x. I will be using a cooler master front mounted rad. I have 3 fans. So my question is should the top fans be intake while the rear fan and the 2 rad fans are exhaust?  I have been overthinking this way to much. Advice from.somebody with experience would greatly be appreciated.

Have your front fans as intake, top and back as exhaust. You can put the rad at the front or the recommended configuration is to have it at the top and exhausting the hot air.

That's how I want it but apparently a top mounted rad is not really a thing in this case. So it most likely has to be a front mounted rad. And well the fans are rgb so I want them visible over just seeing the rad...so they would be pushing air through the rad correct?

agree on the top exhaust. just think on how air of different temperature moves. warm air rises, cold air sinks.

yep. just ramp up the fan speeds a bit so more air can go through for the rest of the case.
