    Exclamation Cooler Master K380 and GTX 1070

    So I recently upgraded my pc, it's kind of a powerhouse now.
    I've an issue now, I think my cooling system is not proper, the inflow and outflow air channeling is not proper(I assume). I'm using Thermaltake Luna cooler fans, check the pic:



    These fans are at-least 4 years old, I remember buying these from UCC back in 2011 or 12. I've already ordered 3x CoolerMaster JetFlow fans, hopefully I will have a stable airflow but I need to set those fans properly.

    This is the Airflow system method from K380's official page:



    The problem is, I don't want to put my pc standing, I prefer laying it down ( )



    Now, how and which way should I setup my fans? I don't have much space beside the casing btw. I want maximum efficiency and proper cooling method. There's no space to put a fan on top(btw)






    PS: There's already a default fan in front provided by CoolerMaster

    I would make the side panel fan an exhaust instead of an intake since that is the "top" of the side when you lay it flat.

    The rest can stay the same. Any fan with a dust filter should remain as intake.

    If you really want to change more, then check if changing the rear fan to an intake helps with processor temperature.

    This.^^ Hot air is lighter than cold so they go up top. That's why exhust should be up. But since yours is a reference card I'd suggest leave it as it is. If you think your CPU should be colder, reverse the fans near the CPU to intake since they're more closer to the CPU.

    Op has a tower cooler (hyper 212). I think the rear should stay exhaust, as making it intake would reduce the air pressure gradient through the cooler. The top (top when the cpu is standing) should have an intake fan.

    why thunder

    instead of replacing/adding the fans you should buy a better chassis with more space and better cooling solutions

    Care to explain what's wrong with his PSU or his chassis?

    I don't want to change my casing, I love this casing. And tbh, I don't like those flashy NZXT blue, white, red casings. I prefer versatility because I move a lot with my PC.
    @aayman acknowledged.
    500W is perfect for GTX 1070, I've been asking people on nvidia's reddit section(/r/nvidia) and no one ever said anything about upgrading PSU.
    And the casing is tight I know, it's a pocket rocket
