Computer fair local on sunday, so toying with liquid cooling fer my tower.
Not really needed, tbh - Division 2 on ultra gives 68 degrees on CPU and GPU is fine, but…
Got this case - http://www.coolermaster.com/case/mid-tower/mastercase-h500p-mesh-white/ and YouTube (and logic) says flow is a lot less with front mounted rad / water installed, obviously, cos metal shit in the way of air.
I have option of installing roof mounted rad to fire cooled air downwards. BUT! Knowing a teeny bit about flow dynamics, it’s obvious that if fans blowing cool in, it would disrupt front flow throughput due to opposing flow.
And if a front mounted rad, flow would be less, but likely air would be cooler.
I got 3 choices -
- Do nowt - leave alone, temps on Ultra are circa 65 - 68
- Install top rad to blow cold air down, potential flow interrupting, but would colder be better?
- Front rad - reduced flow but cold air in, bonus of extra filtering.
