Introduction: How to Cool Your PC

Picture of How to Cool Your PC

This is how to cool your pc for better speeds, and longer life.

First off You will need the same about of intake that you have you need the same outtake fans to improve airflow so say your intaking 30 feet cubed a minute then you want a outtake fans of 30 feet cubed a minute. = Good airflow.

my first one so go easy on me.

Step 1: INTAKE

Picture of INTAKE

Well so i have 2 120 MM Intake fans and there set on low so i have about a 2.2 meters cubed intake a minute. Remember this number.

Step 2: Big Boy Fans

Next you might want large fans for more airflow.

Now those numbers see i have a 2.2 meters cubed intake a minute now i have a output of: 3.4 So thats good its taking more air out than in so we got a vacum !! Well Next is Airflow look at my next diagram.

Step 3: Last But Not?

Next the main pic shows most of the good airflow.

Better to have positive air flow, or it is a vacuum and sucks up every particle of dust it can.

This is kind of pointless. I have the exact same case, and this is essentially just an overview of what the manual that came with it said. Please, if you are going to make an instructable, don't make one that basically says nothing new.

Is the fans loud?

getack (author)Ja2Pc2009-11-05

ARE the fans loud... And yes. They are terribly noisy. But, you can adjust each fan's speed individually. So the noise level is dependant on what you are doing at that moment.

georion (author)getack2012-09-04

so..the fans is loud,,,,can the sound be damped in some way??????????

He's not saying it just for that specific case. He's also saying it for people who may or may not have a case that states that.

the idea is to over presurise the case not too vacum it !
and if dust is a problem just put a polen filter in front of intake vents. 
if you seen big cuper comp rooms, you would know that

This blows, terribly written.

fischfry (author)shooby2008-09-18

why not just make a link to Antec's website

Skor459 (author)shooby2008-09-17

I get it, 'cause it has fans right? Teeheehee?

shooby (author)Skor4592008-09-18

Nope. Otherwise it would make equal sense to say the opposite, that it's a bright idea. You get it, 'cause it has lights.

HacknMod has a post about cooling your pc with an air conditioner ;)

And also how to cool it using dry ice:

Fans, thermal paste, cooling ducts:

Big 120mm fans are much better at moving more air at a quieter lever but some of us *maybe just me* don't have the privilege of having such a beautimous beast of a case.

In that case, you get to throw noise levels out the window and install some VANTEC TD8038H 80mm Case Fan. They blow out a heck of a lot of air but sound like a vacuum cleaner. Especially if you happen to have 5 of them running :)
