I'm looking to get any suggestions for fan curves on my setup. I've never done a push pull setup before and I'm looking to learn a bit with some suggestions.

Setup:
  • Case : Lian Li pc-011
  • GPU : Asus gtx 2080 ti
  • CPU : i-9900k
  • RAM : G.skill Trident Z rgb 32gb 3600 (2x16gb)
  • CPU cooler : Corsair H150i Pro (set to intake air)
  • Intake Fans x3 bottom of case : Corsair HD120 rgb
  • Exhaust Fans x3 Top of case : Corsair HD120 rgb
  • Fan Controller : Corsair Commander Pro
  • Motherboard : Asus Prime Z390 Series
The software I'm using to control my fans is Corsair iCue.

I heard that it's better to get a positive pressure within my case so dust is less likely to get in? I'm guessing my pressure would be higher by default since I have 6 fans in and 3 out.

Thanks guys.

Edit: my 4 temperature monitors for my Commander Pro are at my CPU, GPU, Intake and Outtake

The "best" fan curve would be a slope up to full blast at 50C, but I'm going to assume the noise wouldn't be ideal. I would suggest you get the fans as high as they can be while you're doing whatever you use the system for without the sound getting to be an issue. As for positive pressure, it is true that less dust gets in with that kind of setup, but only if the fans you use as intakes have dust filters over them. Without them, lots of dust will get in anyway and get stuck in all the nooks and crannies through which that pressured air gets out.
