    Well the pictures don't work for me now, but I'd guess it's just a vortex. Seriously. There is a fan mounted right behind the CPU fan in the normal orientation. Compare the two when they aren't running. It's absolutely ludicrous to think that one would behave differently than the other unless the fins are backwards, or some how your polarities are reversed and it's spinning backwards.

    Guys Help Me Out,

    Here Are Some Pictures, I Made Sure The CPU Fan Is Blowing on the heatsink.

    {and for thoes with the comment on the hands in pictures, I Already Said That I Ask My Brother To Help Me)

    These are the fans When Not Working (red lines are spin direction)

    [​IMG]


    this is when only the CPU fan is working And Blowing Air (notice the Noctua Lable)

    Well, after seeing the slope of the blades, I'd ahve to agree, adn the fan is mounted up-side down.


    I do understand what you are seeing. Why not just try flipping the fan over and see what happens? Teh airflow created by teh fan shoudl kinda be like a tornado, the blows on the outside, but does draw some air in the middle. The actual airflwo should be a very wide circle around the out rim only, and the air is drawn over the blade edge, and then forced to hte tip of hte blade, and out, with the circular motion of the fan itself.

    Depending on how strong the intake and exhaust fans are, it could be possible that the CPU fan is recyling its own air exhaust regardless of which direction the fans are spinning. Since the fan isn't blowing air back to the rear of the case, the case fan has to work harder to push air out of the case, and similarly of the front fan.

    Maybe verifying that it's blowing air down by remounting the fan might help and if leaving the side panel off is helping, you might want stronger intake/exhaust fans. I would also make sure that the 680 also isn't blowing warm air back into the chassis and if it is, it could be a sign of not enough intake pressure.

    Even on my Antec 1200, I have 3 120mm intake fans on the front and 2 120mm and 1 200mm exhaust fans. All it takes is the 3 intake fans to get clogged up with some dust to let temperatures go up.

    Just For The Sport, I Will Flip The CPU fan And Check (Although I Dont Believe what you described about the flame going in because of a turbulace)
    [I also checked with smok and it got sucked up strait away]
    -
    I Mean, Logig & Expiriance say That if the CPU fan Was Blowing Air Out, THEN THE FLAME & SOME Would Have Blown Away!!!!! (Im guessing it would have been dificult to even light the lighter).
    But Hey . . . . Lets Make Sure Aey..?
    (but i guess its either that the polars are fliped or ...thats how the fan is)
    I Said Before, The Case 120mm Noctua fans Are Working Like You Guys Said (Throwing Air on The side of the lable).
    But the CPU fan.... Well you saw the pics.

    I have the same fans, I'll check it out. My cooler has one on top, and one underneath.

    This is becoming maddening.:banghead:

    My point exactly.:shadedshu
    There comes a point when it's pointless to argue with sheer stubbornness. Unsubbed.

    OK guys, You Were Righht! Indeed!
    Fan Was Fliped!
    (i still dont understand how does a blowing wind could suck the air?) (flame should have been blowen away)

    anyway you were right !

    This is awsome, i can feel the air thrown all over the RAM. (wicked)

    Checkout the new RIGHT Config Scene:

    SO, now that the CPU heatsink is sorted, how about those GPU temps? ;)

    GPU TEMPS ARE DOWN BY 10c

    Thank you

    (its 24c-27c)

    (im still figuring it out how i missed this) (think i thought that the lable should have been infront, and since i saw the flame\smoke going in, i figured it was the right config)

    I was way wrog!

    Thank you.

    Now i just need n application for controling the asus 680 fans (dont want to use the asus tweak utility)

    Ok, so, can I suggest you just leave well enough alone?


    When the card gets too hot, the fans will automatically speed up. The cooler on that card is overkill compared to the stock reference fan, so that GPU in your rig will run cooler, and quieter, than any reference card.

    Now, fi you notice poor perforamnce, or stability issue, then worry about changing stuff.


    It's Occam's Razor, in reverse. Rather than the simplest answer...let's just keep it simple. :p

    As was suggested, given the known rotational direction, the angle of the fan blades should have made it obvious that it was not blowing inward. For future reference, and you can probably even verify it on these fans, the fans usually have two little arrows somewhere on the outer edge. One indicating which direction it turns, the other which direction it blows.

    I'll refer you to good old Wodney...#51 - Question/Answer: Fan Airflow Direction and R...

    At least you got it sorted, and yes, those are more in line with the temps you should be getting with that card.

    I would still watch you ambient temperatures inside your case, I bet you that it could be lower. Glad that it's doing better though. :toast:

    My friend,
    I am sorry if my BiG red words are scorching your eyes. (realy sorry)
    Like The Friend Said, It was A way To Express How Greatfull I Am For Getting The Atention & Patiance From Exp' Users.

    Anyway.. no harm done i guess.
    -----------------------------------------

    My case Temp's were around 40c-48c during rest,
    Now i can see 35c-40.
    (definatly improvment).
    sorry for my bad eng. - (its not my 1st lang)

    What? I am not the one that complained about the large red fonts. So let's be specific here 1stcowgirl and MT Alex, I am not "that guy".

    Well, the last few posts doesn't really talk about the card anymore, but I would just like to say that I've seen some other Kepler cards also reach almost 80C in temps over here (my Fermi does too) when playing the game. It seems that it only happens with Nvidia cards though (or at least, HD 7800/7900 users don't complain about temps over in a "local" forum), I wonder why...

    Because in your post #67 you quoted me, then said this...

    "My friend,

    Like The Friend Said, It was A way To Express How Greatfull I Am For Getting The Atention & Patiance From Exp' Users."


    ...which doesn't really make sense.

    Yeah, no harm no foul. Just sayin it's a LOT less confusing if your reply is actually aimed at the one you're quoting. :laugh:
