Corsair H60 install questions.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Heya

Ive just purchased some new computer parts to make a new build and i have a few niggling questions to ask about the cooler i got the Corsair H60.

My current case that im using for the new PC is a ######## 1200, and my questions are this:

1. There are 2 fans that are mounted in the back of the case are exhausting the air out the back of the case, what is the best way to setup the H60 if i decide not to use the fan included and use my case fan, should i mount the radiator to that the warm air goes out the case or should i rotate the fan so that it blows air into the radiator. The 1200 case fans are fully asjustable on a control panel at the back of the case.

2. I also purchased another fan to potentially have it as push/pull, the fan i purcased was a Akasa Viper Quiet Fan which has the following stats:

- Fan speed: 600 -1900 RPM
- Max airflow: 83.63 CFM (141.75 m3/h)
- Noise level: 6.9 -28.9 dB(A)

My only issue is that to mount the fan on the radiator it uses rubber noise dampening screw things, do i need to get more screws and washers from corsair to be able to mount the fan and if so how do i go about getting them shipped to the UK, also is it even worth putting that fan on the radiator and use it with the Case fan or use it with the fan that corsair provided with the Unit.

If anyone knows the best soloution to these questions then it would be great to hear some suggestions.

nice thanks, so the screws included in the H60 should be long enough to go through 1 fan, then through the radiator then into another fan if i wanted push pull, and u think its worth getting a 2nd viper fan and using them instead of the corsair fan and my antec case fan?

Yes, using different speed fans wears them out faster because you can run the slower fan faster than it's meant to run.

Also, I find you see more of a gain using the same fans, I've had it before where push pull had no improvements to performance...

so grab another akasa viper, then set it all up in push/pull with them all pushing the air into the case so my 200mm fan can get rid of it all up the top of the case is best?

Yup that's what I'd do.

I'm not 100% on the performance of those fans, so another option could be to get a couple of Gentle typhoons, they produce very high pressure, great for radiators and heat sinks.

Whereas case fans tend to favor airflow over static pressure since they blow from an open space into an open space.

arite thanks crabid

one thing i did look at with the unit, are the screws thats provided with the h60 gonna be long enough to go through the push fan, theradiator and the pull fan, or do i need to order 4 more screws and washers to mount the pull fan to the radiator as it only came with 4 screws and 4 washers?

ok i thought i would prep my msi mobo first by installing the backplate and the risers into the blackplate, ive noticed when i do this that the risers are not right and kinda wobble around as if they are not secure, is this normal and when i actually come to installing the cooler will they all be secure when i put the heatsink on or is there some sort of issue there.

also i notice that the fans i intend to use to do push pull are both 4pin pwm connectors and i only have 1x4pin connector on my mobo, any ideas on how to sort this or will i just have to put one of them into 1 of the 3pin connectors instead?
