cpu cooler hyper 212 evo fan facing downwards and the air is being blown on to graphic card

guys yesterday i changed my stock cooler n got a hyper 212 evo fixed and today i realized that its facing downward n the heat of the processor will be emitted out through that fan rite ?? so the hot air is hitting my graphic card if iam not wrong . so will that be a problem ??

graphic card - ddr5 7750
processor -fx-8350
case - CM 690II advanced .


there is like 4 inches gap between hyper 212 evo fan and my graphic card both the fans of these devices are facing downwards. that means they are blowing the hot air downwards rite ?? please help me out this is all little confusing because its my first build.

with 0% load on graphics temperatures of graphic card is 38C is it fine for normal temperature with 0% load or is it high ??? shud i replace my cpu cooler fan to the other side ?? we can shift it topwards rite as hyper 212 evo supports 2 fans. help mee thanks in advance

  1. yeah... either point the Evo toward the back of the case and the exhaust fan or the top of the case (if you have a mesh top or exhaust fan up there)

    don't blow the hot air back down on your gpu.

    with 45% load on gpu its goin 50c

    ya i have top mesh n top fan also . now to replace the fan to topwards i need to remove everything from or just remove the fan n replace it ??

    up to you. i seem to recall the fan bracket can just pop off. if you think you can do that safely without damaging the motherboard or computer then have at it. otherwise pull the whole thing out, clean it, reapply the thermal paste and try again
  4. sad :( i just took the computer yesterday its brand new and iam doin all this stuff to it :(
  5. whats the highest temperature graphic card can hold or it will be safe without problems ???
  6. my fan is facing downwards is the hyper 212 fan exhaust fan or intake fan ???? it wil ltake air n push the air from that silver thing ?? or it iwll take heat from silver thing n push it downwards??

    the fan should be an intake.

    so if its on the gpu side it should be blowing air up.
  8. well actually the fan isn't blowing air its taking air up so it's intaking try to put your hand on the mesh and you'll feel it
