[OC3D] Cooling Forum > Liquid Cooling: Exhaust for top mounted radiator It depends on the type of fans you are using. I was wondering will it be best to have intake or exhaust fans? Clear editor. Mostly depends on a few things but for me when I had a top mounted radiator I had it set in a pull configuration exhausting air out. Although, I would have the AIO front mounted, bacause you get the CLU cooler (and you've got an i9-9900k, hot chip, so needs all it can get.) Doesn't matter where the front fans go in front or back of rad goes. So i will have a 900D, with 3 AF120 performance as intake, a single AF140 quiet as exhaust in the rear. Upload or insert images from URL. I currently have a 240mm radiator mounted at the top of my CM 690 II Advanced. Display as a link instead, × Could easily take out 550W from my two radiators without heating up the case. Spent a lot of money today, 3x Scythe GT 1850 fans, lots of wire sleeving items, and a Heatkiller GTX 680 Hole Edition Ni-Bl block (shipping from Germany). The radiator will sit in the inside and the 3 fans up the top. Remember Me? MandoPatriot, June 9, 2012 in Overclocking and Cooling. If you have the top radiator as an intake, a lot of the heat picked up from the components you're watercooling is gonna be dissipated by the radiator, and dumped straight back into the case. You can post now and register later. However, if you are pushing a high overclock, then every bit counts. By bogeyplayer The installation guide for the CLC 280 says an intake configuration for the fans on the radiator ... we are now pulling that Hot Air out the Top through the CPU Radiator but also this heats up the CPU Radiator and that Rear Exhaust Fan also helping out but then you MUST have good Front Air Intake to keep all cool and noise free as what must gamers want. If you have an account, sign in now to post with your account. If you use it as an intake, the air you're pulling through the rad is going to be cooler than what would be flowing through the rad from inside of the case if it's set as exhaust. Paste as plain text instead, × Joined: 20 Dec 2006 Posts: 3,631. My current setup has a front mounted radiator as an exhaust and one 120mm fan in the back as intake and two 120mm fans on top as intake. Groups; Albums; Member List; Forum Actions In my current build, I still have my cooler configured as exhaust (with a 280mm rad) but I also have room at the top for a 420mm rad. Top Mounted Radiator, Intake or Exhaust. A 120mm liquid cooler was used for the CPU. Of course it will fit, I have power tools. It would then be picked up by the rear radiator. Got the same Case (HAF932) and rad (RX360 Push/pull). Show only OP | 9 Sep 2010 at 12:40 #1. If it's under a desk, you may want to pull in air from the front and send it out the top vice the other way around. Neither really made a difference in temps but dust took a lot less time to build up with a positive pressure.   Your previous content has been restored. There are 2 Cooler Master 120mm LED fans on top of the rad (I also have 2 Yate Loons lying around - would those be better?). Generally using rad as exhaust is best. So i will have a 900D, with 3 AF120 performance as intake, a single AF140 quiet as exhaust in the rear. Then precisionX will control the fan speed of the GPU, you got 2 assist fans, wich will be controlled through teh thermal radar on the mobo as well, and you got the AX860i fan, wich doesnt even turn on at about 25% load.. So if you've got 2 fans on intake, have 2 on exhaust. I think the way I have my fans set up my GPU is slightly cooler. I was watching some youtubers put the radiator in front and have it serve as an intake instead of exhaust. By TraptPatriot, June 9, 2012 in Overclocking and Cooling. So I have my radiator mounted forward and rear and top rear as exhaust. Basically one of those things where it's just personal preference. Anyways the rear 140mm exhaust fan, the 3 120mm intake fans They will be controlled through the motherbaorda headers thermally. So you have a top mounted AIO, and you want to know if you can flip the fans to exhaust? Currently running 2x AIO CPU rads top mounted, 1 intake, 1 exhaust because i couldn't decide! But the impact there would be negligible, however the custom loop is going to pull in some graphics cards and cooling efficiency is going to become a priority. This is plenty of exhaust power and won't need much speed. 2 years ago. Discussion in 'Overclocking & Cooling' started by 3t3P, 9 Sep 2010. If i exhaust through the rad i will use warm air to cool the cpu through the rad, but potetionally have lower syste temps.. BTW i will also have a AX860i, with a 120mm fan wich will exhaust as well. CPU temperatures were predictably lower when the radiator was placed in the path of unwarmed in-flowing air, while GPU temperatures were lower when inflowing air was not warmed by the CPU. My question is, is it better to have them set for exhaust or intake? The front only has room for the 1x200mm fan at the bottom. Side mounted radiator intake (push), Top-mounted radiator exhaust (pull) I've chosen these two mainly for aesthetic reasons so I don't have the fans visible inside the case. Additionally, you … If you do intake it will cause the system to flood heat down and cause a long term lingering heat issue. × Hope my GTX 570 sells for a good amount, link in my sig.. Use it as exhaust. Yeah, that's perfectly fine. So I'm getting a top 200mm case fan. As top intake with good rear exhaust not much heated air gets down to GPU, but everything arround CPU like RAM will run hotter because of warmer air from rad. Gah, $300 in one day hurts. You will in essence be getting cooler air to run over your radiator, but the performance gain is like 3 degrees. When you mount a dual 120/140mm radiator on top as intake, you are forcing cool air to blow downwards, heating in the process. And i will have a H100i, with 4 SP120 performance on top. My loop is going to CPU for now, but will include GPU in near future. As others have said, intake. That said, I use my AIO liquid cooler as an exhaust.   Pasted as rich text. If your fans aren't anything special, then use it as an exhaust. Why spend money on watercooling to have higher water temps? And the GPU shouldn't be affected, and if it is, it's but like 2c. Heat rises, so its best on the front or side as intake. If possible, mount your radiator and fans as exhaust fans. Just seeing what I would see better temps with. The radiator and fan combo itself can be mounted to the front or bottom for intake or the rear or top for exhaust, but it will be less efficient than a fan alone.   Your link has been automatically embedded. I have an Alphacool UT60 360mm Radiator at the top of my case, and above it, i have 3 fans mounted in a push configuration with a mesh filter right above them.
