HI, just got an freezer 7 pro and i have no idea what way to face it / and what way to put my case fans.....
here is my temps under stress:
here are idle temps
here is a pic of the outside of case
Here is a pic of inside
here is another pic of inside ( in this one u can see an extra fan ontop of the hard drive
so basically the top blu fan is blowing IN
the fan above the hard drive is blowing IN
the BIG blue fan ( behind the heatsink ) is blowing OUT
the PSU sucks air from the bottom ( near the hatsink) and blows it OUT the back
The fan on the side of my case is blowing OUT
and the freeezer 7 pro fan is blowing from the front of the case to the back of the case
BY THE WAY i amm gnna be getting a second graphics card for crossfire ...( if that help )
Looks fine to me, though, I think your cable management could use some help (Though I really shouldn't say anything as mine is much worse). My only concern is the graphics cooling. Make sure they have sufficient cooling or dump their exhaust out the back (especially for SLI/Crossfire setups).
Yep, bowhunter is right. Don't fight physics; hot air rises. Make the side an intake, and the top an exhaust. If you're concerned about your GPU not getting much air past it, get one of those PCI-slot fans to put next to it.
You can argue physics all you want, but with his limited intake, the top fan blowing in will give him lower temps. I know from experience, changing the top fan on my case from blowing out to in lowered my temps by 3 degrees.
with that case there are vents on both sides and a vent on the back. As the other's have said the top and back should be blowing out with front and side blowing in. The problem of negative pressure would be eliminated by the vents, the air will find a way in.
Hot air only rises if it's not being blown elswhere.
More important than which position is how much force.
Balance the in-out, and the rest just wont matter.
In other words, if you have 80 cfm worth of fans, get 40 cfm to blow in, and 40 to blow out.
If you can configure it so the top fan blows out, it will take care of any stagnant air at the top of the case.
