My System Specs

Default

Ok, I'm starting to have reservations about my original "drop the hoses down the back" design.




Not only would I need either a 90 deg fitting or elongated holes to bring the tubing into the case cleanly, I'm also wondering about the wisdom of having the tubing in the path of the "higher than ambient" air exiting from the PSU.

The air shouldn't have much of an affect on the water temp, but WC is all about extremes, so a little design flaw like that could have some effect, it's just a question of how much.

What do you folks think????

Would the hot air exiting from the PSU have any affect on the water temps? ( I suspect the tubing will be at least 1 1/2" from the PSU exhaust).
