First foray into watercooling - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Thread Starter 
How are the Yate Loon fans for a water cooling setup? Would go for the AP-15s, but they're, of course, out of stock everywhere. Would it be worth buying another pair of Yate Loons to replace the XSPC-supplied fans, or are they more or less comparable?

I've heard that push-pull doesn't make a significant difference in low-speed fan setups. Is that correct? I really don't have space in the top with the RS240 for a push-pull, but in the bottom on the RX I likely could fit it. Also, is it better to have only push or only pull for low-speed fans? I seem to remember hearing pull was the better of the two.

Any opinions on the Razor block, the DangerDen fittings, or the fan controller?

Cheaper prices anywhere, perhaps?

Brilliant example of how to properly debate. Call someone's advice "crap" without any empirical data or explanation. Here is a quote from the .pdf of our very own ira-k:

Quote:
I run my loop res-pump-rad-cpu-any other blocks. I drop 1.5C-2.5C across my rad in the loop I'm using now. I want the coolest water possible hitting my CPU first. If you have to run several extra feet of tubing to get this order just run it however you need to. The extra tubing would just cause restriction and higher temp's it would defeat the purpose.
So I'm just passing on what I've read (from a senior mod with over 20k posts mind you). Yes, any heat dumped into the water by the pump will be VERY small, but if its not terribly inconvenient to get a little extra advantage, why not take it?


As for your other questions, I run medium yates on my setup and they work great. One disadvantage is that I don't they like being controlled via PWM, but neither did my Ultra Kazes, so that could be a controller issue. I'm running 3 fans on a mcr320 rad w/ my sig CPU and GPU in the loop and it handles those just fine. They don't generate huge amounts of static pressure, but they should be fine for RX and RS rads. Finally, the sound from the mediums is very bearable. Mine are barely audible w/ the case doors on.

Regarding push/pull, I've never experimented w/ a push/pull setup, but I really don't think it would be necessary with all the rad you have. In this thread, Martin states that he believes pull is better for lower speed.

For my GPU block, I went with EK and I'm very satisfied. EK's do tend to be a little overpriced imo, though.

Last thing I can comment on are the Fatboys. These fittings are great. I'm using 1/2" fittings with 7/16" tubing and I really have to strain to yank the tubing off, whereas some of the other barbs seem to let go pretty easily.

What do people think about this fan instead of the YLs? The YL have a sleeve bearing which isn't going to work well with my radiator layout. Also, these have a sexy white LED to light up the inside of my case These seem to have quite good specs and reviews.

Ah, have discovered that the Xigmatek fans do in fact also have a sleeve bearing. Bummer.

Think the YLs will last long enough, at $4 a fan?

Absolutely. The horizontal sleeve bearing thing isn't as drastic as some people make it out to be. They'll last at least a year. Most likely several.
