im going to be watercooling my new rig, and I think i've opted out on the T-Balancer to do so.
I am thinking of the following (all 120mm):
3x Fans on the Rad
1x Fan for the HDD
Then to get the hot air out, i was thinking of having all fans in the system pulling cold air in to the case apart from the Rad fans which will be pulling air out on top of the case.
Now, my colleague stated that this probably wouldn't have enough air pressure.
so i was thinking of the following (apologies for the pic, was in college and they dont have photoshop here, so paint had to suffice (see attachment):
now, the 4 MAIN fans in the system would be the rad fans and the HDD fan (front blowhole fan), these would be some decent Yate Loon 120x120x25 D12SL-12.
and the rest of the fans would be some resonable, LOW SPEED fans, just to aid airflow, not to cool the system.
now, first off: Would u recommend the low speed airflow helpers to be attached to the mobo and then the decent ones to be attached to a fan controller like the kama master?
or would u recommend a totally different fan setup (eg, maybe scrap the fan above the HDDs, keeping the HDD cage seperate from the mainboard cage (so 2 fans on the HDD section, one in, one out), and one fan in on the mainboard cage/partition pulling cold air into the case and have the 3x rad fans pulling hot air OUT of the case......
I'll be cooling CPU, Mobo (NB, SB, Mosfets), and 1x 8800GT.
everything will be overclocked. See http://forum.overclock3d.net/showthread.php?t=20802
