HAF XB EVO Fan configuration

Recommended Posts

I am building a new PC with the HAF XB EVO case using the Corsair H115i RGB Platinum and I am trying to figure out the best fan configuration to optimize cooling for

 

Ryzen 3900X

G.Skill Trident Neo 3600Mhz @ 14-15-15-35

Asus Crosshair Hero VIII X570

Gigabyte Gaming OC 5700XT

 

I plan on using this to have an additional intake from the left side of the case pointed directly at the GPU, but I am unsure of how this will affect the overall airflow in the case with the radiator fan right behind it.

 

For fans I have

  2x Corsiar H115i stock fans (97 CFM @ 3.0 static pressure)

  3x Noctua NF-P14s (78.7 CFM @ 1.91 static pressure)

  3x Corsair LL120 (43.25 CFM @ 1.61 static pressure)

  1x Noctua NF-A20 (86.5 CFM @ 1.08 static Pressure)

  3x Noctua NF-12 Industrial PPC 2000 (107.5 CFM @ 4.18 static pressure)

 

My first thought was:

Intake (244 CFM):

  Front: 194 CFM @ 3.0 static pressure (2x Corsair H115i stock fans pushing) >  27mm radiator  > 157.4 CFM @ 1.91 static pressure (2x Noctua NFP14s pulling)

  Side: 86.6 CFM @ 1.61 static pressure (2x Corsair LL120)


Exhaust (129.8 CFM):

  Top: 86.5 CFM @ 1.08 static pressure (Noctua NF-A20)

  Rear: 43.3 CFM @ 1.61 static pressure (LL120)  NOTE: I prefer this could be replaced with a 78.7 CFM @ 1.91 static pressure (Noctua NF-P14s)

 

My other thought was to move Noctua NF-P14s from the radiator to side intake (replacing the LL120s there)

Intake (351.4 CFM):

  Front: 194 CFM @ 3.0 static pressure (2x Corsair H115i stock fans pushing) >  27mm radiator  > pulling)

  Side: 157.4 CFM @ 1.91 static pressure (2x Noctua NFP14s)


Exhaust (129.8 CFM):

  Top: 86.5 CFM @ 1.08 static pressure (Noctual NF-A20)

  Rear: 43.3 CFM @ 1.61 static pressure (LL120)  NOTE: I prefer this could be replaced with a 78.7 CFM @ 1.91 static pressure (Noctua NF-P14s)
