Funneling Hot Air from Wraith Spire directly into top exhaust fan
my CPU is R7 1700 oc to 3.7 Ghz (1.25v)
my cooler is Wraith Spire, PWM controlled, set to max at 80 oC
my casing top exhaust fan is a Noctua NF-12 iPPC PWM controlled, max RPM set at 80 oC CPU temp.
my ambient temp is 30 oC
my idle temp is >48 oC
my cpu-z stress test load is > 82 oC.
Right now, my brain can't stop thinking about more efficient way to cool the CPU.
I have made some easy hack:
it reduces temp by around 2-3 oC
I also tried putting literally a funnel directly in front of the cooler down blower fan that seems to make things worse.
I am now imagining that removing the downblower, and making a tunnel from top of the cooler into the top exhaust fans would actually makes thing better.
1. the industrial fan is able to move around 70-72 cfh of air
2. the air would then be sucked from around the system into the cooler and right out of the system, not blown around inside the casing
3. I love imagining things.
So anyone want to chime in whether this is a good idea, bad idea, or just go with it and you will collectively donate a new cpu for me in case I fried this one ? '); }
