Hey guys, this thread isn't really looking for a solutions. I'm mostly just trying to brainstorm ideas of how to best cool the NZXT Phantom I plan on getting soon so I can order the appropriate fans as well. For those of you who don't know, here's the fan config:
Front: 1x200mm or 2x140mm or 2x120mm (1x200 included)
Side: 1x200mm (included)
HDD cage: 1x140mm
Top: 1x200mm or 2x140mm or 3x120mm (1x200 included)
Bottom: 2x120mm or 2x140mm
Back 1x140mm (included)
I also plan on using a Corsaid H100 240mm cpu cooler.
My thoughts are this, take the 200mm fan and put it on top with the other one as exhaust. Keep the side as exhaust. Mount 2x140mm on the bottom as intake. Mount the CPU cooler in front as intake. (I think if I remove the fans from the rad and place them in the front panel as push, then squeeze the rad in between the HDD cages, it'll work. I'm not completely sure of that though.)
Do any of you have a better idea? I'm pretty new to temperature optimization and correctly configuring fans,
I have a single Radeon 7950, but I plan on upgrading to a second at some point down the line.
Are you asking if my GPU blows hot air out of the case or something else? My fan config is currently 100% open. I can configure anything to blow in any direction. I want to know which configuration of fans including direction you think is best.
