Ideacenter Y900 Airflow question

2016-11-27, 14:38 PM

I am operating a Y900 in a rather dusty environment. Have had the unit for about 4 months and decided to check the filters. To my surprise they were rather clean. I then looked inside and noticed a lot of dust on the horizontal surfaces and some on the cooling fans.  
So I grab a small section of tissue paper to determine air flow, mainly concerned why there are preferation holes on the side cover, was suspecting there would be positive pressure in the cabinet and forcing some air out those holes but to my surprise there was Negative pressure in the case pulling air in through those holes. This would mean the main front filter may never do much good.

 

I am thinking I need to add a fan to the front of the machine forcing air in.  Has anyone else added a fan? Which header did you use and what were the results?

 

Solved! See the solution

I looked at another Y900 and that one has the front fan. Wonder why this one does not have it??

Well I found that a 120 x 25mm with the PWM fan speed plugs right into the 4 pin port. Had to make sure the fan was blowing inward.
