Will adding an intake fan help?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

My current build only has 2 fans, 1 exhaust and 1 on the cpu heatsink. Despite this, my temps while gaming remain pretty cool at under 70 degrees. If I added another case fan as an intake, will it make much of a difference?

It shouldn't be that big of a difference in a full size atx case, and since your temps are ok I would just leave it since adding a fan also means adding noise

yes but it's a difference you might not notice, unless your CPU fan is working really hard to maintain that temperature.

 

What about GPU temps?


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

it all depends on your GPU and CPU and heat measurement inside the case...you should measure the temps of CPU and GPU and report us,if those are too high,would need intake fan,preferably at least 140mm.
