Ambient Temperature: ~35 C Rig Purpose: Gaming Overclocking NOW: Not till performance drop is felt Overclocking THEN: i5 2500K @ 4.5 GHz OK, I have took pictures of CPU componenets from various sources and combined them, with scale, to form this image Case: HAF 922 Board: ASUS P8P67 PRO Cooler: Hyper 212 Plus GPU: HD 6950 (Dimensions match to MSI R6950 Twin Frozr II) PSU: CM Silent Pro 600 (Dimension of legtht is extended by 100mm) NOW, what i want to know is the best cooling option for this case. On overclock.net i found an article in which it was recommeded to rotate the CPU cooler. Case 1: ROTATED CPU COOLER ========================== Query 1: Will cooler fit with rams? Query 2: How will CPU cooler be fed with cool air Case 2: AS DESIGNED =================== [EDIT] Query 1: How will CPU cooler be fed with cool air The side fan answers my query [/EDIT] Case 3: TOP FAN AS INSIDE ========================= [EDIT] [/EDIT] Query 1: Will air flow be as i imagined or different? Query 2: Its too much positive pressure, will it hurt air flow? Which of the above three cases is best. Also i am welcome to other options.

This uses the natural flow of convection currents, and does not create cross currents and eddies. goodboy16h December 17, 2011 3:35:06 AM Best answer selected by goodboy16h. Can't find your answer ?
