    Exclamation Need help for CPU cooler positioning

    Hello, My Case is the Corsair spec-01 , My problem is that i wanted to buy a CM hyper 212x . But i can position it only horizontally. Is there any problem if i place it horizontally? And are there any other good cpu cooler which have less then 150 mm hight ? ( some info: my GPU is the Gigabyte GTX 750 TI windforce edition)

    AFAIK you can post it horizontally or vertically as you wish.

    Just be cautious about airflow.

    That is the problem . The GPU wish push hot air inside and the cooler will take that hot air. Won't that increase the cpu temp???

    when you put it hor. the gpu's back will take the hot air if you put the fan to intake air from the top of the casing.

    afaik the gpu exhaust's the air out the back. put intakes on the front and bottom. exhaust on the back and top. if the cooler is horizontal put the cpu cooler's fan such that it pushes air to the top and out.

    Problem is that there isn't any bottom fan positioning locations and the gpu pushes the air at the bottom .

    is your card reference model or an aftermarket? reference cards push the air from their back to the outside whereas aftermarket ones circulate inside the case. but you shouldn't worry too much about temp. 750ti's not that power hungry thus creates less heat. you can do it like this: put cooler horizontally, place intake fan on top, place exhaust on bottom, be happy. or you can do it vice versa. but gpu's back pcb(and surrounding air) tend to be warmer.
