Best fan for i7 2600k? - Page 3

post #21 of 27
Thread Starter 
Thanks
I realy hope you can answer this questions

1. you set the rear fan to intake isnt the rear fan set to outake by default?
so that should be changed? (reason because of having 2 top fans instead of 1)

2. Please tell me how to easy wire all haf-x led fans to the switch
i have an engineer build my first pc what should i tell him so he wire it up like yours is it very hard to do, Does it take long time ?

3. Would remplacing the rear fan 140mm with a Thermaltake cyclo 120mm
be bad since is smaler ?
I am defently going to put a led rear fan also but have this 2 options
either the Thermaltake cyclo 120mm or the prolimatech vortex 140mm

compare both
size:
thermaltake cyclo - 120mm
prolimatech vortex - 140mm

Speed:
thermaltake cyclo - 1500 rpm
prolimatech vortex - 1000 rpm

Noise:
thermaltake cyclo - 17 Dba
prolimatech vortex - 18.1 dba

Airflow:
thermaltake cyclo - 108.80 CFM
prolimatech vortex - 87 CFM

4. If you recomend i go for the Vortex for rear fan
i then want to put the cyclo as CPU fan conected to mobo
using a heatsink like megahalems or silver arrow
Would that be great?
what heatsink is most easy to install and work best with HAF-X without risk of breaking of the asrocks fatal1ty p67 mobo?
Keep in mind my apartment is very dusty live in industrial contaminated zone.

5. If i conect the CPU fan (Whatever it be zalman 9900 max, megahalem/silver arrow with thermaltake cyclo etc...., and conect it to Mobo to cool the CPU using PWM
on mobo Asrocks fatal1ty p67 will it be in a possition so it will be highly visible form the side window of haf-x?

6. Can I use the aerocool Touch 2000 fan controller and hook 2 fans (sidefan and one top fan) to one of its channel
i think (but not sure) touch 2000 is 6W and the megaflow fans are 3.5W
so touch 2000 wont work for this, to few fans to share one channel?

7. If Touch 2000 wont work because it has too little W
would you advice i go for Aerocool Strike-X (black surface) that has 12W
it look so cool with a double screen , or should i just use the more classic lamptron Fc6
(only good thing with that designwise is it have red led lights)
Problem is Lamtron dont fit good into the haf-x case i was trying it yesterday
the button system on the left hook up the lamptron so it goes a bit inside
and not align with the burners and card readers in the bays
maybe i could drill another hole in it?
to make it goes more out and align with the dvd and blueray burners

Thats for sure it either be aerocool or Lamtron.
Aerocool > look so Startrek (i love it but only 6W except of the strike-x )
Lamptron> look more classic and with the red it almost look like hal9000 from odyssey 2001

It looks amazing at night. I'll take some pics later if you want. The LEDs are not bright or overbearing at all. The two on top especially look awesome.

I have the NT model, which is basically the same thing as the Max model but with a green light. It's a very subtle led on mine, not extremely bright, but I have a lot of bright LEDs in my case if I want it to be bright, and when I don't, its a perfect non-intrusive light:



It is a PWM fan so it is controlled by the motherboard.

I would leave the rear fan as exhaust, as if you get the Zalman, its probably going to be pushing out the hot air towards that exhaust. Here is a picture of how I have mine set up:



I plan to get a second 200mm fan for the front top opening, the one that doesnt have a fan, and have that as an intake while the rear and the back top work as exhaust. That way, air blows in from the front side of the case, and flows through to the back.

When you say you are trying to wire all the LED fans to the switch, do you have a fan controller, or are you talking about the switch built in? If its the built in switch that controls the front LED, I wouldn't recommend using that one, there isnt a whole lot of juice running through it and it couldnt power much more than the LED its already hooked up to, I'd get a separate fan controller.

Also, this is what it looks like through my window, but its all greenish because I have the nVidia edition HAF X:

Sure that is a good idea the Top fans was build to expell air ?
The rear is made to be for intake.
(also where i live lot of dust specialy dust comes in from Top during the day having it as intake on top would be a problem for me i think, but i want the 2 tops fan mounted )

So you would suggest this setup:
Front> intake
Side> exhaust
rear> exhaust
Top 2 > exhaust
Top 1 (Where there is no fan by default> Intake

instead of:
Front > intake
Side> Intake
Rear> exhaust
Top 1> Exhaust
Top 2 > exhaust

that is running with say either a Zalman 9900 max led fan for CPU
or a silver arrow heatsink.

What Heatsink should i use to get the Fan mounted so the fan face the sidepanel
like this:


would Silver arrow be bigger than this?
and will the cyclo pattern fan mounted on silver arrow face like this in haf-x?

I want it like this

Can Zalman 9900 Max be placed like this:


so that it faces directly toward the side window of pc

Or only like this so it faces toward the rear of pc:

If it only can be placed like in second video
then i dont find the look of zalman so amazing after all...
and i maybe go for a megahalems or silver arrow instead

i want a heatsink that can be placed so the fans face like this:

And about the Rear fan
is there a danger of remplacing the 140mm with a 120mm
considering i be using both of the 200mm top fans to expell air in the haf-x?

Is Zalman 9900 made of cobber?
I am thinking most of getting this fan
but i have some humidity problems in my flat
humidity make cobber green
so will the zalman 9900 turn ugly green then?
not good idea to get zalman in my case?
or will the haf-x protect it from humidity?
