Nzxt Tempest

Recommended Posts

So ive had my nzxt tempest for quite awhile now, i love it alot, totally my style and not too loud for the best it is with its 5 120-140mm fans


now my question concerns the 120mm rear exhaust, its written in the instuction manual this fan doesnt -need- to be exhaust because of the 2 top 140mm exhausts


At the current moment i have 2 120mm intakes in the front, 1 120mm intake on the side


the PSU exhaust, 2 140mm roof exhausts and a 120mm rear exhaust


the way the rear exhaust is positioned it doesnt look like it is exhausting much at all, my thermaltake maxorb is almost totally blocking it and i rarely feel even warm air coming out the back, so my question is basically, should i get a fan filter and make the rear exhaust an intake?


my main thoughts are if it isnt doing much as an exhaust would it be beneficial to basically run straight into my maxorb fins and shoot basically straight out the top? or keep it as it is?
