    Haha

    So yeah, it was definitely pulling air in then. So it was actually pulling air in, where 5cm next to it the rear exhaust fan was pushing air out of the case. I'm such a genious.

    Fixed it now though.

    Pull means it was still sending air towards the back, ie, takes it through the heatsink to reach the fan.
    Push is when it takes it from the open and you know, pushes it through the heatsink.

    So if you had it in push, it'd be bad.

    Fix your cable management! No excuse in a 650D! Plenty of space to tuck em away!

    I know. The thing is that the pull fan was facing the rear exhaust fan. Kinda pointless don't you think?

    Not as bad as it had been pushing at that place. :P

    It feeding the rear-exhaust, doesn't matter much whether pushing or pulling, imho D:

    Aw don't be mean, it's alright he's got most of the stuff tucked away :P
    Cable management is more of a preference thing after you've made sure that nothing is severely blocking airflow.

    @Saehon if you bought your fans individually you should've used an AF120 on your rear exhaust, SP120's are aimed at radiators and AF at case airflow

    But otherwise your fan setup looks freakishly like mine, blue rings and all!

    Did you try using the white rings? I think they'd look better in your rig. However, if you sleeved your cables you may find red more preferable for both sleeve and rings. :P

    Are the AF fans much better as case fans than the SP series? What is the real difference, just noise level and air flow or is there some other factor in why AF are better for case fans?

    LinusTechTips found that they were pretty even as case fans, but the SP fans were hugely better at meeting static pressure demands.

    about the Cable management, i didnt put my rig together my self, had a friend to do it for me, never done it my self, so i was cheerleader on the side :-D
    i did mention the cable for him, but he could'nt do it better :-(

    i bought the SP120 as Twin package, i did a mistake, buying a AF140, which dont fit in the 650D case

    Hmm white rings.

    Ok.





    Not bad, I'll stick with 'em.

    As for cable sleeving, not until waaaaaay later when I switch to water (and waaay later as in GTX780).

    Seasonic PSU's are awesome. No complaints about my X-650, I hope it can handle my upgrades soon though

    Congrats to the 8 fools who made the ignore list, your ignorance knows no bounds, bravo!

    Don't think I ever posted these in this thread:

    Edit;
    Having a good home-office really does winders for productivity I find. The two extra monitors have allowed me to broaden my workspace substantially and easier navigate through several windows, applications and programs. I'm surprised how well I adopted working with a 1440p monitor alongside two 1080p; I thought the lower resolution would bother me.

    Now I just need to setup a proper home-server...
