awakenPan Posted January 23, 2016 Share Posted January 23, 2016 Hey, recently got a 250D, loving the case, been able to fit the monster known as the MSI R9 390 into it. However I wasn't really able to afford to liquid-cool my computer (nor really needed to, since I'm not planning on OCing), and most discussions about airflow are related to the H100i, which I am aware the 250D was designed for. I'm having some issues with the idle temp of my r9 390. I know that it has the 0 dB technology where fans turn off below 60C, but my card keeps going on/off on/off since my idles (even when im just web browsing and using windows explorer) hover around 58-61. It's really annoying to watch it turn on and off repeatedly, so I think it's related to airflow since other owners are reporting 45-50 C idle temps. So I recently went out and bought 2 AF120 LED fans, and I'm not sure how to install them on the side of the case. I read that the 250D is designed for positive pressure, but then that would be all intakes and no exhaust... Especially with a CPU cooler that is top-down (GeminII S524 rev 2), I'm not sure how to orient my side fans: http://i.imgur.com/TDncJcjl.jpg Maybe I should try making them both intake and turn around the stock 140mm fan to exhaust at the front? Or make them both exhaust? Or would that make it too negatively pressured inside the case? Or maybe have 1 exh 1 intake? I hope I don't have to buy 2 80mm fans, I'm on a tight budget now and my mobo only has 1 header, so 5 fans on a single header is meh.... Any help would be appreciated Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
