If thats an intake then yes thats fine
I managed to remove the cpu and pull it out. then I attached the SATA cable. Thank you tho.Is it possible to remove the shroud?
Usually they either clip in and/or are attached with a screw or two.
Okay so this is how the fan at the top is attached: https://windowsforum.com/attachments/img_20190605_210537-jpg.38058/If that's the top of the case, you'll need to turn the fan round so it vents out.
Both pictures are of the front of the case. I have not made a picture of the top yet, because it won't be visible what way I put it.This looks like the front of the case. The reason I say this is because you already had one fan at the front, yes?
If it is turn the top fan the same way round as the bottom fan.
I think you have the photo's mixed up as this is a photo of one fan and probably the top of the case.
If it is the again turn the fan around so it's extracting out.
Let's get your fan set up sorted first but in any case stick to the method that is currently stopping the crashes.
If I took a picture of the top it wouldn't be as visible because of the little holes. But I'll take a picture of the inside when it's turned off. The one at the top is already extracting out I think.Thats great.
So the one placed at the top needs to be the other way round so it extracts out.
Lastly when you take a photo can you pull back a little so we can see which part of the case being discussed as it saves on confusion.
I'll definetly try to get the cables out of the way.Now you see all those cables you have? You can, when your feeling up to it, tuck them out of the way. See where the other cables are going round the back? You could always follow that route if there's room.
This isn't super critical but it makes for a nicer looking machine and the airflow isn't impeded.
Yup your right, great job! Looks nice lit up too.
Thank you both, It turned out to be easier than I thought to get the fans installed and lit up.Looks really good. Nice one.
I have them plugged into the fan controller you sent me: DEEPCOOL FH-04 Fan Hub,Fan Controller, Fan Splitter, Powering up to 4 Fans (4pin) with PWM, Occupying only One 4-pin Motherboard Header: Amazon.co.uk: Computers & AccessoriesWhere do you have the fans plugged in?
This fan hub didn't have a controller. I tried to download a fan controller program on my computer or see if I could manually control it, but I can't.Ah ok so are they running at 100% do you know or at a lower speed?
They're very quiet, so then I think they aren't set to 100%Well I think with that controller you plug it into the cpu header, then plug all your fans into it. Whatever the fan speed is set at via the cpu header will determine the fan speed for all fans plugged into the controller.

If your fans are at 100% chances are they'll be very noisy, is this the case (re the noise)
Thanks! And sadly yes, if I turn my gpu clock up to say +50 games start crashing again.Yes..
As long as your temps are fine then all is good. I didn't want you sitting there with the fans driving you nuts so I'm pleased to hear they aren't doing that..
So, now getting back to your gpu, do you still need to back the clocks off?
