What's an ideal fan placement for the Thermaltake Versa H18?

Go to solution Solved by Intergalacticbits,

I saw an old LTT video on this exact thing.

The conclusion was 2 Front intake, 1 Back output, 1 Top back output and every fan added after that made no difference.

If you do a search you can probably still find that video.

🙂

 

Myself for cpu cooler I'd only go with Noctua.

So I'm building a PC in a few days in the Thermaltake Versa H18 (3x front fans, 1x top fan and 1x rear fan).

My CPU is the Ryzen 5 3600 and the GPU is the EVGA RTX 2060 KO. I'll be using the AMD Wraith Stealth Cooler.

Can an intake fan on the top help reduce CPU temps? How many front fans do I need?

The fans are the F12 PWM PST

Thanks in advance :))

If you have enough fans to fill all the slots, I would put the front 3 as intake and the top and rear as outtake so you have as close to neutral pressure as  possible. The air will flow from the front, cool the components, and leave hot.

I am far from an expert in this so please correct me if I’m wrong.

Unrelated to the post, but depending on your use case, the wraith stealth might not be enough for a 3600.

You help CPU most by getting better cooler for it. Using just case fans to make different airfow schemes provides very minor changes.

Well I'll test it

I won't be overclocking or anything.

What's a good cooler that you recommend?
