Hi All,

I am putting together my PC right now, and I am running into a small issue. So, I have a BitFenix Prodigy case and I am using a Corsair H60 cooler. Usually Corsair suggests that the H60 be an intake... but the problem is I lose the best place for getting intake, front top. The front bottom can't take it since there is and SSD and HDD there so there is no space.

Is it worth not putting the Noctua NF-F12 PWM in the intake top front and putting it in the top bottom (SSD and HDD block it immediately) to keep the H60 as an intake, or do I move the H60 and make the H60 an outlet in the back?

I should add that I am using the stock fans in the top as an outlet and will use the last stock fan where it is is needed (either was intake or outlet)

Here is a picture:



Thanks.

I'm going to suggest using the H60 in the outlet position above the motherboard. Here's why, the air going into your case and out the back will not increase in temperature appreciably until going through the rad. Best to have the heated air leaving the case rather than entering it IMO.
