You do understand filling all the fan slots will not help right? You want correct air flow. Not a mess of fans. Generally 3 to 4 fans is all any computer needs and more can often times INCREASE heat because of messing up flow of air.
I will run tests to test this theory.
Aren't side fans theoretically helpful for GPU temps? I would just assume that since it's blasting right at the GPU.
But I can see your point. Maybe having just One single stream of air flow is good.
Lots of testing in my future!
If this is the case I would really like to find a comptuer case that has good cable management.
I currently have the haf 912.
I have the luxury of upgrading because my frined is building a new computer and I can give him mine for about the same price I bought it for.
One thing I dont like about the haf 912 is the cable management, cables cables cables everywhere!
Tiny Voices, Thank you.
You opened my eyes as to how to actually do cable management.
I'm a big amateur, just watched a youtube video and skipped 90% of it and built my computer after that.
I will fix my cable managements.
I may be able to secure a VERY good deal for a new 500r on CL. Maybe I might go with that one.
Any doubts/cons about it?
No. and you won't find any. But simply put both have very good airflow. the haf 912 has been said to have the best airflow. There are never benchmarks for airflow. Even cheap junk cases can easily have perfect airflow if set up properly.
I have 2 overclocked GPUs in SLI and a slightly overclocked CPU shoehorned into a microATX case and I have no heat issues at all.
