COSMOS 1000 HDD Fan; Where?

Recommended Posts

The one little graphic with no words in the manual referring to the HDD Cooling Fan leave a lot (and I mean a lot) to be desired. I can't make heads or tails out of it. Can some one say where the HDD fan is supposed to be mounted and how and in what direction (suck/blow). The temperatures inside the case seem to be running hot in the "off the shelf" configuration and it look like I need to modify it with more and more powerful fans.

That helps a lot. Thanks.

However, looking at the images I would not recommend switching the default bottom intake fan and mounting it above the HDD cage as the PDF file suggests. The grill above the HDD cage where the fan is to go is mostly blocked by the superstructure of the HDD racks below. Not only that but some of the air will be drawn in from inside the case itself via the grill to which the VGA airduct attaches. Actually, if you look inside the actual case you will realize that just about all of the air will just be re-circulated within the case and little or no fresh air will be drawn in from the outside. I don't know why they would suggest switching the bottom intake fan and placing it above the HDD cage.

Mounting a separate HDD fan, however, is a different thing. I see, however, that it would take up at least two of the 5 .25†bays leaving you with only two or possible three 5.25†bays left. It's too bad that the only way to mount the fan is inside of the very tall plastic clip-on housing which takes up a whole bay extra.

Oh well, thanks again.

If you really have a problem with the temps I would also suggest you take out all HDD brackets you are not using, if you didn't do so already.
