At which distance between fan and case panel do you get turbulence?

  1. Depends a lot on the fan speed, blade design etc. It's also not black and white, you'll always have some level of turbulence. The closer it is, the more turbulence you get.

  2. You get turbulence from fan blades and from air passing the panel. The magnitude depends on the air speed. In principle, distance does not matter.

  3. My experience with a decent vented panel (large holes that are a little too far apart) has been as follows:

  4. Super useful stuff, thank you. But just to be clear, your NF-A9x14 experience referred to the 12mm clearance situation, right?
