Layout of thermal tubes of a cooler

Recommended Posts

How thermal tubes of a cooler - vertically or horizontally, should be allocated, and a curving should be allocated upwards or downwards?

In the manual it is not specified about it.

Please align the cooler so your fans are blowing hot air out of the case. Also make sure the heat pipes do not obstruct any structures.

Which cooler are we talking about?

To state the obvious & back up Zenphic's question:

Which cooler are you using as not all coolers are built the same & many can be turned to create 'room' or improve airflow (depending on the case & it's fans / venting etc).

In fact, the way for us to help you if for you to help us with at least the following:

What cooler

What case

What motherboard

Fans in the case & locations

Possible picture of current setup inside showing motherboard & fans as best as possible.

A couple of 'for instance' examples:

One case with an Asus silent square fitted as per directions, worked well butthe case ony had an 80mm exhaust fan in the back, however it had a 120mm in the top above the cooler.

I turned the cooler by a 1/4 turn, thus the air rises (hot air rises duh) exhausts via the faster higher cfm 120mm fan, dropping the cpu temp by a further 4 degrees idle & 2 degrees under load, it also aided the rest of the cases cooling dropping the enitr chasis temp by 8 degrees in the new position.

Example #2:

Mid tower ATX with cooler (4 heat pipes & exposed fan) that was not that much effective over the stock cooler.

This time a 1/4 turn, cut an exhaust port in the top of the case, used an exhaust kit (alluminum tub that stretches / bends etc) that fitted over the fan, added 2nd fan at the other end of the tube & screwed to new port in the top of the case, covered outside of hole (on top) with laser cut logo fan cover & voila heat exhasuts twice as fast & the cooler became a 1/3rd more efficient.

The examples above are a fe out of many where the cooler is set dif' depending on the cooler & case.

Please give us mor info so we can perhaps help you out.
