    Ganjiry,
    I was thinking about doing exactly the same thing. My only doubt was that the back fan would suck the hot air exhausted by the PSU.
    I think I like it better that way actually. Less dust clogging the radiator.
    So your only exhausts are the fans on the radiator?
    I have 5 case fans in total (2 front, 1 back, 1 bottom (120mm, 45 CFM each) and one side (140mm, 70 CFM). Should I have them all pushing air IN? Since the radiator fans I'm going to install are 77CFM each, that would mean positive pressure all the time, regardless of speed, right? Well unless the radiator fans are maxed out and the case fans are barely spinning.

    Thanks mate.
    Cheers,

    J

    @ Bungee,
    It's never been a problem for me mate. I doubt the exhausted psu air is very warm at all once it's rose. I would have thought it spread once it's exhausted anyway.
    Yup all intake except the H100,
    2x 120mm intake, front(stock Corsair)
    1x 120 intake, bottom.
    1x 120 intake, rear
    1x 200 intake, side(stock Corsair)
    2x 120 exhaust, top
    All other fans are Cougar Vortex.
    The rear and bottom fans run at around 6/700 rpm most of the time unless gaming. I'm not sure of the speed of the front and side intakes as they're the stock corsair fans ran from the case fan controller but they are constantly on the medium setting.
    Fans on the H100 on medium setting too(connected to H100, not the motherboard) and i've never seen the cpu over 43c during IBT.

    As you know though, What works well for one person may not work for next. Others find that having the top radiator fans as intakes work better for them.
    Try them one way and switch them around to see which works best for you

    Bungee, yes filters will be restrictive, but you really need them. I would certainly give them a try anyway. With a set up like mine, the radiator will clog up with dust if I don't, and that certainly won't help temps very much. I'm changing cases and am going to get some DEMCiflex filters. Some cases they make sets especially for the case which covers all fans. They're magnetic and even come with metal tape for putting them on plastic. Any filter is going to be restrictive, but so is dust. Here is a good demo on positive air flow. I always set my cases up where all fans are pushing cool air in the case except the rear fan.

    Nice one Steve i didn't know anywhere made a filter for the side panel of my case. I used some really fine steal mesh which i fitted inbetween the side panel and fan. Its a right pain in the rear to clean. Well it was untill i thought about just removing the panel and hoovering it lol .I don't use hoover anywhere near my rig though.
    Those you linked look a lot less hassle. Just got to find them in the uk now.

    Edit: found the Demiflex filters in the uk but not for my case. I'll mail them and see if they will get some enit.

    I just found, they have software that tells you when to clean them. Pretty good, I guess but I think I would know before the software. The company is in S. Africa, I believe.

    They do make them for your case, I guess you'll just have to find them.BTW, they claim they are 15% restrictive, which is pretty good, but some think it is more than that.

    @Steve, thanks for your answers. That's great info regarding the filters. They even make a custom kit for my case. DEMCiflex NZXT Phantom 410 Magnetic Dust / Fan Filter Set - 6 Piece - FrozenCPU.com
    They are not available down here, but DemciFlex would ship worldwide.
    I'm going to order a set!

    @Ganjiry, thanks a lot mate. I'm going to try a similar setup since our cases and fan arrangement are very similar. Will let you know how it goes when everything is up and running.

    Thank you guys,

    Yeah i know they do make them for my case but peeps don't stock it in the uk. I've only looked at a couple of sites so far though. I shall keep mooching though as i think what i used may restrict the air a tad more than i'd like.
    Cheers chap

    No probs mate. I hope it works out for you. It's quick enough to switch em round to test either way enit.
    Good luck chap.
