    New Case, BETTER Temps!

    Hi Community!,

    I just switched from a Corsair 600T White Graphite Edition case, to a new NZXT H440 Red/Black case. Who would have known that I could have brought my temps down a whole 10C from where I was. That's just the beginning. Here is where my temps were in BIOS before the switch CPU 48C Motherboard 45C.

    After the switch to the new case, I'm at CPU 32C Motherboard 27C. 27C!!!!!!!

    This case has massive airflow. You stick your hand in between the GPUs or near the mobo and there's a wave of air that smashes into your hand.

    I have:

    3x NZXT proprietary 120mm fans in the front for intake
    1x NZXT 140mm exhaust
    4x Corsair SP120 Static Pressure fans in push/pull on a Corsair H100i
    1x extra 120mm Corsair fan up top for intake

    I'm VERY VERY happy with this new case, and it looks awesome doesn't it?

    Airflow is the king of cooling in a case for sure.

    I have the 600T and worked quite hard in having a very good air flow, meant I changed the fans in the from of the case from those that came with it.

    Nice one mate.

    Good deal. I see a lot of situations of users with h2o cooling that feel they do not need air flow. I think air flow is even more important when using h2o and your new case is a perfect example.
