My Maker 5t is too hot, literally

Recommended Posts

The Maker 5t is an amazing case, build quality is fantastic and looks magnificent, however, the airflow is very restrictive, Changing my case has led my CPU to be about 6 degrees hotter than before, removing the front panel does drop temps but man, if the panel restricts airflow, then why have it there in the first place.

I hear you, They need to give us a mesh option for the front.  I don't understand Cooler Master at all, they pick form over function all the time... And that's not cool.. The pun intended.   I replaced the fans that came with that case, because they are kind of terrible.  Installed 3 140mm pressure RGB fans and also added a exhaust fan at the top-rear of the case to keep positive pressure.  A total of 5 fans.  3 in, 2 out.  With a air cooling setup, seems to work.  If you use the controller they give you, you can't tune it correctly, just use the MB headers or get a real fan controller not a fisher price model.. 


You could try removing the CD/DVD caddy and move both fans up, that should help.  The case comes with a bracket for that purpose.

You PSU and HD's should be fine.
