How's my planned fan config?

mxk
 Share

I made a thread yesterday about picking a case, and the two cases have options for my 280mm rad in the front for my AIO. I was thinking of doing a negative pressure to get as much of the hot air out of the case as possible

here are the setups:

 

Meshify C

280 rad on the front pulling air in

two 140mm fans on top pushing air out

One 120mm fan pushing air out in the back of the case

 

DG-76 (front panel off)

280 rad on front pulling air in

three 120mm fans pushing air out of the case on top

One 120mm fan pushing air out in the back of the case

 

Which case with these configs be a better pick? Also, can some suggestions about the configs be made that would make one case better than the other?

The Meshify is the better case and no matter what you should avoid the the DG series wherever possible

Fine temps - but Id exhaust my radiator if possible.  Introducing higher than ambient temp in a PC case is...no matter how you sell it...not as optimal as introducing the coolest possible air in the system.

you do get better cpu temps though and you cant fit a 280mm rad at the top of a meshify (I think, please correct me if i am wrong)

 

you are a bit exhaust heavy, 1 140 pushing out and a 120 on the meshify is best.

I really wanted to fit my clc 280 on the top of the meshify but I can't sadly. The 140 pwm pure wing fans from be quiet are cheaper than the 120mm version, so would it work for me to instead have two 140mm fans at a lower RPM? Or is the 120 and 140 both pushing out a better choice

I disagree on exhaust heavy (he intends on having Negative Air Pressure in his first post)- the Meshify is like the CoolerMaster HAF cases - High Air Flow - that whole front is mesh allowing a lot of air in very easily.  To keep that air moving through quickly I think he has the right amount, then the tone down on speed should be for sound imho if its even needed

I'll look into it more, but I'm still sticking with two 140mm PWM pure wing 2 fans since they're cheaper than the 120mm ones for some reason.
