Inverted fan direction/airflow in Corsair 100R


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!


I assembled a PC using a Corsair Carbide 100R case and 5x 120x120x25mm 1800 rpm fans.

For a fan label error, however, I mounted the fans in an inverted way compared to what I wanted:


DESIRED ORDER: 2 front intake, 2 top exhaust, 1 rear exhaust

ORDER OBTAINED (BY ERROR): 2 front exhaust, 2 top intake, 1 rear intake


I could obviously fix the problem with a minimum of patience and work, but I was wondering out of curiosity: what negative effect would I have in terms of cooling (especially as regards the CPU, MAINBOARD and SSD)?


The system configuration is:


Intel i3-8100 CPU with HSF stock

RAM Corsair Vengeance LPX (2x8GB) DDR4

SSD Crucial MX500 SATA / 6G (mounted on the top/first zero-tool bracket)

MAINBOARD Asus H310M-R R2.0 (a MicroATX budget mainboard with only one passive heatsink on the PCH)


I use the integrated video of the CPU and therefore I don't have any discrete PCI Express video card installed.


The order of the cables is decent/sufficient.


Thanks to those who will give me useful opinions.
