    Child in Time... one fan on type of another, doesn't actually help, the outer fan, will decrease the airflow of the fan behind it.. UNLESS of course there is a sufficient gap between them.. such as the exhaust fan in the rear of the case and the fan on the CPU heatsink. The fan on the heatsink pulls air through the heatsink fins and the exhaust fan sucks that hot air OUT of the case.. placing two fans, directly on top of one another...creates pressure between them, so airflow will not be better

    I tried it ouside the case, and it felled like more air is coming through...
    + it make 2 degree difference on the cpu stress test.

    2 degrees... probably if you tested it several times with only single fans, it would be different every time.. Believe me, adding extra fans like this, does not work..

    Of course if they were contra rotating, that would certainly make a difference.. (as long as the airflow from each is in the same direction, but one is going clockwise and the other anti clockwise) as on a contra rotating propeller on an aircraft

    However I have never seen contra rotating fans for computers.. YET

    pretty logic phsyics with the fans.

    second, why the hell do you need that material.... when you use photoshop and.... it seems like sketchup in your gallery.
    waste of money.

    improve your computer bit by bit after you improved yourself bit by bit

    @yenszen.. uncalled for and off topic.. I suggest you read the rules

    @Child in Time. here is another article that may be of interest to you and apparently there are counter rotating fans available

    I guess he can use google as good as you can (fail)

    and ofcourse counter rotating fans are available (hi)

    The thing is, why would he have it in his computer when you dont use so much power.
    no need to cool it professional

    Thats my opinion. Maybe he does something with that opinion.

    i think im allowed to give a opinion (whew).

    Maybe he thinks its not reasonable, than i listen. and wish him goodluck.
    just trying to help with common sense instead of google.

    After all, you have a nice machine and i wish you goodluck with your fans and andy.
    Next time, you can use google and all your answers are there aswell (happy)

    @ andy
    I will Try removing the fans and test again. Thx for the advice;).
    My the first test was with new heatpaste maybe that´s why the second measurement was lower.
    @ yenszen
    1.Sorry that my skills aren´t that good => the rendering was made in Max + Modeling in Archicad. PS only for a little postwork...
    2. I need that because I can affort it and it makes my (bad....) work faster.
    3."Maybe he does something with that opinion"... what should I do with it? Sell my PC ?

    nice to see someone using archicad here.
    ArchiCAD is my favourite tool for arvhitecture.
    Your render in gallery is not bad render. it is not photorealistic but I find that approach as good one. I don't know if you wanted that to look like that or not, but I like it.
    Maybe floor could be a little different and trees in the back should be more similar to that one in front.
    With little more tweaks, I think this could be good render as some mixture of toon and conceptual approach to visualization.

    Haha no(lol) you should love and take care of your pc.

    What i mean is that you can spend your money better on other aspects, like useful plugins/HDRI's/ textures that you cannot find here or are not yet crackable. Instead of spending it onyour machine, when you dont need the power.

    When you studied and learned a lot, than icrease your computer aswell.


    I think thats a healthy and good process, Plugins like mightytiles, itoo, psd manager and HDRI's you can use everyday and it will fasted up your renders, and make it look more beautiful.

    Its just a different proces and my opinion. and ofcourse you choose different process than me. Its just an advice how many people do it that dont have earned money with their renders yet. I was also in this position, what to do and how much to spend.. and where to spend it.

    mayb you can use the advice cause the study of plugins has helped me so much, compared to the power in my pc.

    ich wünsche euch ein schönes tag(giggle)

    @Andy You are right its better without the the "outer" 2 fans. 3 Degree less!!! THX AGAIN
    @MZEX nice PC! But I never understood why the powersuply is at the top in the Antex one. Just more space for the heat to summon. Nice passiv Gpu, if you are looking for a new silent graficscard take a close look at the Asus models. They are active but not unnoticable.

    Well the conversation about whether stacking fans works or not, has been going for a few years now and as I said, is you have two fans spinning in different directions, then yeah, that would work.. but glad you gave it a try and nice to know it helped

    As for power supplies being top or bottom. personally I wonder why they still continue to place them inside cases at all.. I was reading about external PSU's some time ago.. and I'm seriously thinking of doing it, on my next build....Drives need, power cpu needs power, graphics and other boards need power and even the power supply needs owner..and having al this power being generated from one compact metal box, and fitting that inside the case, seems crazy to me. Placing it at the bottom won't stop it..although I can see the logic of having it at he bottom, heat rises, so as it does, it should get blown out of the case, before affecting other components.. and of course having it jammed in the top corner, means al that heat stuffed into a small space, will inevitably shorten the longevity of the Power Supply itself

    Oh and if you think I'm going to photo graph my rig, as it stands, forget it. at the moment, it gets very hot, so to counteract that, I have been using a very powerful desk fan, to blast air into it, so it's a bit exposed and very dusty, which I am constantly removing with a hoover and air duster

    It's very old and as soon as I get the money together, it will be heading for the scrap box. Of course the drives will be saved, the power supply will kept as a spare but basically the rest will find it's way into a box and stored in the garage :) Once I get my new kit, I will definitely post a photo
