Thanks! I would just be using a single radiator but if I’m following correctly you’re suggesting a push setup (with perforated side panels/all exhaust)
Yeah, for a single radiator configuration, that's exactly how i'd set it up.
Would love to hear how something like a 3900X or 3950X does with the L12S in this case. I'm having a bad time with my first AIO's pump noise (H100i Pro XT)
An L12S on an open air test bench gives you a respectable 72ºC at 1750 RPM, on an open air test bench According to Optimum Tech. Based on testing, you can expect 1-3ºC *better* performant than an Open-Air test bench in Winter One with the recommended airflow setups. With something as hot as the 3950X or 3950, I'd expect you might see a 1-2ºC drop, if you ran the case in all-exhaust mode with perforated side panels acting as the intakes.
