    Default D14 air flow

    So I got a D14 the other day from a really awesome member here, thanks !! So I have a question. My cooler is mounted on EVGA X58 Classified 3 in a S/N air flow and with my OC 4.1 Ghz 1.35v 1800 Mghz ram I get temps of 85-86 running prime95. Do you think it would be more benaficial to set it up running N/S with no exhaust fan above it or mount it E/W and trim a small amount of fin material to make it fit. My NB cooler is in the way of mounting it E/W so if I do mount it that way it would need to be trimmed. I have the NZXT switch 810 case with 8 fans so actual air flow is really not a problem, well at I don't think it is a problem. Any input would be appreciated.

    with an east west flow out the back I presume it doesn't fit?
    If that's the case just remove the rear fan and still keep the push pull out the back
    and not trim anything
    And I am also assuming your running the top as exhaust
    also the rear fan is useless the way its set up now.
    Im confused when you say your NB cooler is blocking the install can you be more specific
    how much of the cooler is making contact and were?

    Yep Run it out the back. Remove rear fan. It just messing with your air flow around the cooler at the moment. I personally dont care for running coolers in the s/n postition. One is looks odd. Two I think it pulls head from GPU into your heatsink. Cant cool with warm air. Some may disagree but that it just my feelings on it.

    The way all of your fans are set at the moment there is no clear air flow. Fans are pointed in too many directions. Kept your HDD cage fans at the angle you already have. Remove rear fan. Rotate CPU Cooler. Take fan from rear and add to front if there is enough room for another.

    Right now I have two enermax 120mm tb silence fans drawing in air from the front, two nzxt 140mm fans one of top above the cpu and one on the back of the case exhausting air then I have one more nzxt 140mm up top as an intake and a enermax 140 on the bottom as an intake. Then there are the two angled ones on the hdd cage. So yea there really is not any clear path. So now I have a project for my 3 day weekend, trim my cooler and change my fans around.

    Why do you keep saying trim the cooler? Dont do that. You will mess with the designed airflow of the cooler. I don't see why a D14 cant fit in a Switch 810. I have one and I cant put everything it in without issues. Just remove rear fan for clearance. Is you ran in the way or something?

    The NB cooler is in the way. If I want to run it E/W I will have to trim off about a 1/4" of fin material laterally and 1" vertically.

    Here you can see the nb cooler and how close it is in S/N. If I run it E/W I will have to trim it.

    Default Re: D14 air flow

    If it is truly a small amount that you have to remove then you can, but I wont recommend it, but if I had the proper tool
    like a small pair of snips it could be done or you could score them and try to fold and break them off.

    Personally it may not be worth the trouble you can also go with a cooler that has a smaller footprint

    Anyways for air flow have all your front and bottom on intake have all the top at exhaust and the cooler turned and blowing out the back in a push pull

    i have an idea, you can decide to try it or not depend on you.
    Why not change the top and rear to intake, change D14 fan so they blow air down from top(keep the position of the cooler); and change your front, bottom and HDD fans to exhaust?
    You can always try it out, changing fan around till you get a perfect temp that you want. I think my way above wont affect airflow much cause of the amount of fans you have

    While your suggest may work, you have to remember that heat rises, and since he has no other option due to the motherboard heat sinks, having in N/S with the air blowing upwards will be he best option. Also have the rear as exhaust as well. Don't have it has intake, since you are running mostly aircooled products its wise to pull as much hot air out of the case as much as possible. What do you have as intake right now?? Front fans? bottom?? This should be your primary goal, make sure the front and bottom has enough intake fans take in the cold air and allow the rear and top to exhaust the hot air.

    Most cases are proven to work great this way, while some cases does have its exceptions, but in your situation, its best the way I mentioned above, just my 2 cents.

    I know about the heat rises thingy, but its just a suggestion to try it out to see which one he can get better temp since he cant turn the cooler side way with modify it. But try to keep air flow in one direction, either intake front and bottom and exhaust top rear. Or the other way around
    But i think with amount of fans he has now, heat rises fact won't be a problem, all that fan in front and bottom would be strong enough to pull much of the heat out front

    And one more way would be mention above, rear fan as intake(or take off) and have the cooler push air up, and change both of your top fans pushing up, but your case will have positive intake cfm

    Bottom line is your airflow should go the way Kenny and I said as heat rises so the way it is now should work to your benefit
    and just make sure the rear fan at the back is blowing out the two on your cooler as well as the ones up top blowing south to north or out the top
    the front and any on the bottom blowing in, and the ones on the HDD cage blowing toward the back of the case
