H60 + i7 950 @ 4Ghz, idle temp 47? - Page 3

post #21 of 37
Thread Starter 
guys i tried with some power features on from the BIOS and my idle is now at the 4 cores from 36-40...run occt and at high load, vcore behaves ok (1.28) and everything is ok...

i will run like this for a whiole and then i will see if i can get it to ~4.2 for everyday...

i am unlucky , i have to run fsx and every mhz counts..))))))

tha h60 fan blowing air INTO the box through the radiotor....Idelt temps are still at ~45 BUT occt topped 66!!!!!

if i wasn't clear about how to position the rad, i've attached a really rough sketch, hope it helps...

and if i'm not mistaken, corsair also recommend to mound the rad like i've drawn, so if you've mounted it like that then it should be ok.

as far as temps go, 40-66 from idle to load seems perfectly acceptable, good luck getting your 950 to 4.2!

haha i am stupid...it confused me more!!!

do you say that i should have the hoses of the rad on the top side? i mean on the side of the side panel? but i think that way it will not fir in the screws..its not rectangle ...

lol, sorry, have to say my sketch is a bit crappy, but yeah, you got the idea. the hoses of the rad should be on the side of the side panel, that would be the ideal position.

but i googled your case, it does seem not possible to fit it that way as your 120 rear fan is too close to the side panel. oh well, in that case you could try and turn your rad around so that the hoses are on the top side of the rad, that way it's further from your graphics and closer to your top fan, could help keeping the coolant cooler slightly, but if you can't be bothered, 40 at idle is decent enough

yes i think it is..but now i found out that my push pull config sucked...because propably i didnt use the correct fan to pull the air from the h60 fan...

i want to keep the config as it is and find a fan to put on the inside to pull the air from the h60 fan...but i dont know much about fans. I found the h60 fan specs, but what i have to do?

choose a similar one? or a fan with more pull capacity?

any help on this?

I see others disapprove, but it's never been a stability issue for me. Hopefully, it won't be for you, either.

i'd say don't even bother keeping the stock corsair fan, buy two new fans for your push/pull setup.

i don't know what's your requirements for fans, like do you prefer performance over noise or the other way round.

the corsair rad has pretty dense fins, so you'll want some fans with high static pressure that can force fairly large amount of airflow through the rad. i'm no expert with fans, but i'v come across this thread a while back when i was considering getting a h60, might be useful to you

wow! this must have been a ton of work for him!!!

I have searched a little bit yesterday but the corsair fan is rather good at pressure...

i know, what a guy!!!

to be honest i've really got no clue if the corsair fan is a good performer or not. but i do know that most people who use corsair h series coolers replace the stock fans with others, i believe the main reason was noise over performance? so if noise is not a big concern for you, i guess you could keep it, but still i'd recommend pairing up a push/pull with exact same spec fans.

i have a couple of candidates for you here,
akasa apache black approx 2.7mm h2o
scythe gentle typhoon approx 2.1mm h2o
i know in terms of static pressure those are not as good as corsair's stated 3.2mm h2o, but i heard that those fans are dead slient and are very popular fans for water coolers

btw, in the uk, the h60 is also being sold with a akasa apache fan included
