Do I need more fan? (Meshify C)

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi all
I'm finalizing my new built now. Just want to know if additional fan would change anything.

The case is the Meshify C. I will be using an EVGA CLC 280 in the front as intake, with the EVGA stock fans. The 2 120m fan that came with the case will be exhaust. However, I upgrade to 3 exhaust fan, with 2 140mm on top and 1 in the back.
Is it worth it? The only thermal difference will be my GPU, which is a 1060 6gb. I also want to keep the pressure on the positive side, as my apartment is quite dusty.

2x 120mm exhaust fans are more than enough. I would highly recommend against 3 exhaust fans as it will cause negative air pressure meaning it will draw dust into your system.

 

I also have the Meshify C TG, I have 2x 140mm fans as intake and 2x 120mm fans as exhaust, 1 at the back and 1 at the top.

Ya I thought about that but the EVGA fans have quite high CFM (even at mid speed). I would assume I could use 3 exhaust and still have positive pressure.

 

Another crazy (and maybe stupid) idea is to use the top 2 fan as intake as well lol

i always wanted an hovering pc

Those fans are pressure optimized and pulling air through a dense foam front panel and a rad which leaves for low airflow, If you want you could put 2 exhaust fans at the top.

well.. you could probably go zero exhaust fans and still have sufficient airflow.

 

just keep with the fans you have now, you can always get an extra fan if you need it, you cant "un-get" a fan you buy now and end up not needing.

Your GPU probably won't benefit anything from extra exhaust. Even less if they were all intakes.
