Corsair H60 intake or exhaust

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So this question bothers me alot!

Got Thermal Take BE 9

It has side and top fan, 230mm. So I'm not sure to go for intake or exhaust.

I run my h-50 as rear exhaust, tried as intake and only 1C cooler plus really disrupted my case air flow.

Agree'd...I've had a H50 and now a H70. I ran mine as intake for a while and it made near to no difference. Except it heated the inside of my case up like a *****. Either run it as an exhaust on the back or as an intake from the front if you can.

I ran mine in my old Zalman case as front intake, with the air flowing though the case and straight out the back, it ran 5 degrees lower under load.

Hope that helps

Well,seems like I will try both ways. Ill try as intake and exhaust. If it heats my other components Ill go for exhaust! Thx guys, it helped.

Tried push/pull, my 3300RPM delta blew em out of the water so if your like me and don't mind fan noise get a fast high cfm fan.

Push/Pull does give noticeable improvements in my opinion...as for fan choice...I've tried a fair few and the best were noctua 120mm and the 1850rpm gentle typhoons i'm using now. GT's have high CFM and even at only 800rpm I idle at 34 ish degrees
