Wow, what a thread. Talk about a heated debate...



How about leaving it at "One method does not fit all" and then let each use what method they have tested that suits their individual setups?

I totally agree, it needs tested being idle, and also overclocked with more tests.

I will agree it definitely depends on the setup. When idling or working at low load (ie not overclocking or gaming) it would seem more efficient to have an exhaust. When using a lot of power it would definitely be better as an intake. I'll admit right off the bat that I learned a lot from you guys.

/thread. (seriously, please)

so i did my own tests, i tried to keep everything as close the the same as possible, a thermometer keeping track of the room's temperature, and keeping my case open so other components heat levels would not affect it. unfortunately being the idiot i am i forgot to take any pictures to prove it so you have to go by my word.

with the fan inverted, i would always hit 3+ (min 35 degrees c) degrees higher during idle with a max of 46 degrees c, and during load i has to end the test rather quickly because i had the temperature go near the cpu's max rated temp (70 degrees c) and hardly fluctuated, it just steadily climbed in temperature.. i will not try that again.


as for blowing, i get a max temp of 58 degrees C where the temperature would fluctuate quite a bit (that means it was doing its job). and idle had minimum of 32 degrees c with a max of 35 c.


the physics do suggest that no matter what blowing should be more effective, my tests do prove it, but i really dont want to do this again, it was a pain, and my boss was not happy with how tired i was when i got to work after that night.
