If we need to get maximum performance from the machine we purchased, we need to keep the temperature of it in optimal value.
Optimal temperature, what is that?
The optimum temperature of any electronic device is the temperature at which the device can operate at its maximum. As the temperature of the electronic devices increases, their performance decreases. THERMAL THROTTLELING is the same thing.
So, do you know what this value is?
Exactly 50 degrees Celsius.
It is the highest point where the heat has no effect. The performance decreases as it passes.
So, why we invest our money in unnecessarily, to a purchased case which never does good airflow. Lots of people say that the best thing is adding the case at last to the budget.
4 kind of people in case selection
- Those who buy the least amount of cases
- Those who are looking for the case with the most fans
- Those looking for the side glass
- Those looking for the same with RGB FAN
But how many people are looking for the build quality of the case, the system that manages the airflow, the quality of the front panel cables, the space available for assembly?
There are many types of cases available in the market. If you are going to build a system with great performance, keep in mind that it needs good airflow.
There are several important points that can be made to keep good airflow in a case.
- There should be a way through the case to let in the cool air and let the hot air out. This is called PATH OF THE AIRFLOW.
- The case should be designed so that no device can be used to block or block that road.
- You need to be able to use at least 3 FANs. The minimum number of fans needed to keep good airflow in a case is 3. 2 as INTAKE and 1 as EXHAUST.
It’s good to have EXHAUST FAN in behind. When cool air is sent in front of INTAKE FAN, they hit the ram of your board and take their heat back. Then pull them out of the fan.
Effect of CPU fans
But when the CPU FAN comes here, things go awry.
Some CPU fans pull the heat out of the casing, while some of them take cool air and blow it into the processor and dual-fan coolers have a large heat sink that blows cool air through the heat sink on one side and pulls it out of the other fan. So, the effect on your GENERAL AIRFLOW will depend on the CPU FAN you install.
The other thing is something a lot of people forget. It is not enough to put a fan to pull the air in front. They need to have space in front to pull air. I have seen people with beautiful fans in front of closed glass cases without a single hole. But there is no point in putting that fan on. Because, where are the winds? Does the air come through glass?
That’s why if you want a good airflow you must buy a case with a MESH on the front or a perforated case. There is carbon fibre on the front of my case. The wind can’t come in front. But there are 2 cuts about 2 inches from the front with mesh. That’s enough. It is better if you can buy a case with full Mesh.
Now a lot of STOCK CPU FANs come from the type that takes in air and injects. As a result, warm air is left around the processor. It’s easy to pull it off if you have an EXHAUST FAN nearby. That means it would be nice to have 1-2 fans on top of the case. But if you do LIQUID COOLING, you will not have any problem with the flow or any of these problems. But there are a few separate issues
Case of Dust
And finally, the dust. If you turn on the EXHAUST FAN, more dust will come in. The more INTAKE FAN you put in; the less DUST is left inside.
But don’t forget to keep his balance in the flow. In my case, I have 3 intake fans on the front and 3 EXHAUST FAN 3 on the back. There are dust filters so there is no fear of dust.
