Another Fan setup question

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

 

I've purchased a 500r + h100 and i was wondering if my fan set up was okay and if anybody could suggest some improvements

 

Front: 2 x Intake

Side: 1 x Intake

Bottom: 1 x Intake

Rear: 1x Exhaust

Top: undecided

 

Im not sure how to have the h100 installed in the case or outside of it and the same fans as intake or exhaust.

 

All help is thoroughly appreciated

Any changes in your case fan configuration will depend mainly upon the radiator fan mounting, either pulling air into the case, or pushing air out of the case.

 

Using outside air to cool the radiator is optimal, but you then must deal with the relatively warm air from the radiator being exhausted quickly and efficiently. Given your case and current case fan configuration (positive pressure) and the few mounting options you have for the radiator, you should have the radiator "outside" the case, meaning on top of the case I assume, with the radiator fans pushing air out of the case.

 

I don't understand what you mean by, "... and the same fans as intake or exhaust."
