NZXT H440 :)

Postby DJ Tucker » Fri Mar 25, 2016 4:18 pm

so i'm getting the case above from my better half. In all of my previous cases I have had positive airflow from 40-70% more intake over exhaust. On this case I will be putting 3x 120mm aerocool shark fans on the front as intake and the same 3x fans on the top as exhaust. This will give me neutral airflow but I have a gpu taking some of the intake air and a rear vent that will be unused. would I not have negative airflow and if so what would that do to my temps? also how could I get positive airflow?

You could probably install another 12cm fan on the bottom of the case to pull in air, where it is the coolest anyway. Just make sure you have a dustfilter there :)

agree with sbohdan. Also you could lower the speed of the exhaust fans to allow more internal airflow as it wont escape as fast.

or..... http://midwesttowers.com/parts/fan-stacks/ - although your electric bill may go up slightly :supz:

think lowering the fan speed would be best solution as a fan on the bottom wouldn't be possible as it is encased to hide the psu.
