Hi guys. I've been doing some research on the best ways to mount my fans with my new Corsair H100i and came across this thread
, which raised some really interesting points about airflow.
I've put together an airflow diagram for how I imagine things will work in my own case, but am hoping for some feedback regarding whether it will actually work this way, and whether or not I could set my fans up better.
Case: Akasa Venom Toxic Full Tower
CPU Cooler: Corsair Hydro H100i
Motherboard: MSI Z77 Mpower
GPU: Asus GTX 680 DirectCU II - 4GB edition
My plan is to use the 230mm roof fan instead of the default 2x120mm Corsair fans, and set it as an intake. This will bring cool air over the radiator which is then quickly exhausted before reaching the rest of the system.
The 2x 230mm and 1x 140mm intakes will all run at a low speed. While they will pick up some heat from the hard drives, they should still be fairly cool by the time they reach the graphics card.
In theory I think this looks like an OK setup, but I'd be very curious to know what others think and what input they could provide.
