Corsair Obsidian 800D

Hi Guys

A friend of mine has the same as my case, but is usings it as air cooling rather than water cooled.

He has 3 fans mounted at the top of the case, pulling air into the case, and the fan at the back exhausting the air out.

Is that the best config???

Thanks for your help

Hay

No not really Hayley the 3 fans on the top of the case should be exhausting air,because as we all know hot air rises. flip the one on the back of case around so that becomes an intake and replace the fan in the bottom for a better fan having that as intake also

Ok I have changed his case around, turned his exhaust fan so its bring air into the case, (Also had to turn his CPU cooler round, as it was blowing out at that fan) so now the CPU cooler is blowing into the case also, Turn the 3 fans round at the top of the case so they are now Exhausting. Haven't changed the other intake fan yet, As we haven't got one to go in there yet.

These are his idle temps :-



Please let me know if this is ok?

Thanks

Hay
