How should i set my cooling up?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

hello, i am looking on some support on how to cool my case.

 

post-32533-0-52330400-1374171986_thumb.p

 

the image shows my case and how i plan to cool it, but im not sure this is the best way. i currently have:

1*120mm intake from the front

1*140mm noctua fan in-taking from the side panel

PSU/GPU outputting in the back

2*140mm at the top of the case drawing air out as heat rises

 

and a corsair h60 that will soon be put in, which im not sure to have in-taking fresh air into the radiator from the back then having the hot air taken out from the top or have it so the hot air is just pushed out of the radiator out of the back of the case 

 

would appreciate the help

I suggest you use the top fans as intakes. To be honest that is a great way to keep positive air pressure and also it helps too cool the cpu socket vrm area and the ram and the top of a gpu. Then use the back fan as an exhaust to get rid of the air from the H60. Apart from that it is a good setup. Make sure you use filtered intakes to keep dust out or buy some filters and screw them in on top of the intakes.

the only thing is doesn't hot air rise meaning the air drawn in from the top will be hotter?

It will be a bit warmer, but difference in temperature will only be minimal though.

Usually the best way in my opinion and one of the more common ways is:

Front - intake

Bottom - intake

Side - intake

Rear - outtake

Top - outtake

Basically front to back and bottom to top. Most cases are designed to be cooled in this fashion.

Also the reason for the side intake is due to blower style graphics which also dump air out the back of the case. I dont know how well that would apply to the newer style coolers that just dump the heat into the case instead though.
