Vented PCI plates good or bad?

I have for the 4th time re arranged the cables in my P180B lol. And when doing that. I realized I did'nt need the extra USB PCI connector that whas sitting right under my videocard. I also started to wonder if those pretty thick cables coming form that USB connector where obstructing the airflow fro...

[quote="cmthomson"]Don't bother with a 140mm Aerocool Streamliner. I bought one, and it was louder than a Nexus and moved less air. Double whammy.[/quote] Thanks for the warning! It's hard to buy fans without having people like you to ask. Just trusting the manufacturers specs can be a mine field. I...

Funneled intake fan improved temperature in P180B

I cant seem to stop experiment with my cooling lol. But it's fun and Sometimes an idea works. I allready have a such a funneled cpu fan. (See article in provided link) And this have worked out well for my 120mm Arctic Cooling fan, sitting on top of a Thermalright XP90. http://www.casemodgod.com/HSF_...

[quote="cmthomson"][quote="where?wolf"]In order to hopefully improve the balance. Could this be a better way? Move the Nexus to the top fan mount as an exhaust fan. And then mount another 120mm Sunbeam fan as intake ? Would that give a better configuration? Or should i get a Kama Bay also? Mounting ...

[quote="snapshooter"]I have a very similar fan setup as yours and I also discovered that removing top exhaust fan improves CPU temp. I've been planning to mount it as an intake but never actually tried it. Now your result encourages me even more. BTW, do you see any improvement in terms of noise and...

[quote="cmthomson"]Based on your first post, this temperature drop is entirely expected. You inlet fan moves fewer CFM than even one of you outlet fans, and much less than both of them combined. So when you removed one of the outlet fans, its opening became a second inlet very close to the CPU fan, ...

[quote="fmriguy"]I've discovered the same thing when I removed the top fan. I've been meaning to just set up a duct to make it even more efficient. Another thought though...what about using the rear as the intake and the top as the exhaust? It seems that it would have the same effect (e.g. the two w...

Hi! Hmm, that theory may prove to be very true. At least with the stuff I have inside the P180B I did install the top fan as intake, after reading your ansver. And the temperatures dropped on the cpu to 29C idle and 40 load. This with the Tricool top fan at low. The top load temp where 42C when Runn...

Improved temerature with Antec P180B top fan off?!

Im a bit surpriced to find that if I shut down the top exhaust (orginal Tricool fan) I loose 3 -4 C, compaired to haveing the top fan on at "Low". I decided to try this after reading in a forum, about some members discussing various fans and fan configurations for the P180. One guy there at the foru...
