Meshify C case fan question?

Zimm119
 Share

Hello all, I have a question regarding best fan placement for Meshify C case. My son and I are building a gaming rig and have 6 Corsair LL120's for cooling. The CPU and GPU are Ryzen 2700x with wraith prism cooler and Asus Strix 1080ti. Power plant is EVGA Supernove 850 G3. What would be the best fan placement for the case? My thought was 3 120's in front for intake, one in back exhaust and 2 up top exhaust. I still have the factory fans that come with the case. Thanks in advance for the suggestions!

if you don't care about dust then your plan is good. Otherwise put the top as intake and use the air filters.

That config sounds good to me. Neutral air pressure is good.

So actually theres a topic about this in this same forum. This guy recommends 2 quiet 140mm fans at the front for intake without exhaust

 

PS: please upgrade that HDD

Thanks for the link, I'll check it out. What would you recommend for the HDD and why?

why HDD if we have affordable SSD with obvious performance gains?

I think your config will be fine. You can control the-always-feared dust by having exhaust spinning slower than intakes. Since you are using stock cooler, you could spin top fans almost zero speeds, just having lighting effects going on. Rear will be enough for doing exhaust work by its own.

That seems quite strange since hot air rises.

Removing the NF-F12 at the rear didn't make much difference since it doesn't provide that much airflow especially for the noise. It's not a great fan for an exhaust mesh that isn't very obstructive.

The effect of air rising is negligible when there's active airflow.

If that hot air can overpower the fans, then we should use R9 290X graphics cards to power hot air balloons.

Or at least get the middle solution by getting SSHD which offers around 5x faster than conventional HDD but still has the higher capacity than SSD with reasonable price in between HDD and SSD price range.

I recently built in this case and went with four SILENT WINGS 3 fans in the case.  Three up front for intake and one in the rear for exhaust.  It's been working great and the fans are silent. 

 

Keep the FD fans but don't put them in the case.  The LL fans you bought will be great.

Thanks! Yeah, I'm definitely gonna keep them for emergancy or another build.

The LL's work great in these for cooling, i seem to get a lotta LL's sent to me from corsair so i just go with those,

I'm Running the same as narrdarr's  cept 140's up top and push pull on the rad just for the hell of using the extra fans.

 

It's not the dust collector i thought it would be, i think running the top fans with the mesh filter helps a bit.

 

These are really short cases running WC or AIO's @ the front can limit your GPU choice to under 290mm

Do you want optimal for temps, do you want quiet?  Do you like cleaning your PC?

 

Optimal is as much cool air in as quickly as possible, while exiting the heated up air as quickly as possible.  Your current setup, for that case on air coolers - is optimal.  Unless there are more places to mount fans (I don't think so on that case).

 

I would never use top as intake - that's fighting the laws of thermal dynamics.

"affordable"

 

$200+ vs $50 for 1TB

3- years random RW lifespan (maybe even less for samsungs) vs 10+ years

 

Keep the HDD OP it's just odd how some people talks about SSDs as if they were some kind of alien tech or something, I load games from my HDDs perfectly, the only noticeable performance gain is in the boot time and the difference isn't even that big vs a hard drive... but anyway, whatever floats your boat I guess

Boot time is just a cool thing to show off or compare. The biggest difference with an ssd over the hdd is a more responsive and snappy system.

WD 1TB SSD are only 150$ 1TB SSHD about 60-70$ and 1TB HDD about 40-60$

Load times are much different when comparing SSD to HDD.
