You should be dressed like an Eskimo sitting behind that rig lol

Gentle Typhoons, I'll check them out.
I still want to go Push/Pull.
I have 2 Xigmateks sitting here form an old Dark night I sold.
Think there good enough for just pulling?

New Milford isn't too bad in the winter, West Milford is worse. Higher elevation = more snow and more cold. eek.gif

Which Xigmatek's do you have? I am quite impressed with their CLF-140mm fans. I'm using two of them in my 5.25" bays to feed a ton of air to the H100, which is probably resulting in my good temps. smile.gif

They where pretty quite also.

blackbalt89,

I didn't get to PM Corsair George this morning,
So I changed some settings in my BIOS under Health Monitor,
I did some playing around with CPU smart fan controller,
Put it on Silent, ( CPU Smart mode is on auto )
Pressed all three levels on the 100 pump button,
Now everything is working fine.
Now I know when hear people say, On low you forget the computer is running.
Very quite.
Going out to buy some screws and get busy with Push/Pull.

So I guess it wasn't broke after all biggrin.gif

wheee.gif

At least all is solved now! I forgot to mention that in my BIOS I have CPU fan control off. Which might have allowed the pump fan controller to work.

I never liked the ASUS fan utility. It never ramped fast enough, even on turbo. frown.gif

Push pull is the fire. I wish I would have remembered which screws to use where cause now I've got the zinc plated screws sitting on top of my case instead of inside like I originally planned. doh.gif

Didn't realize until it was too late and the rig was all put together. Screw it, lol.

Screws are 6/32 x 1 1/4" IIRC. Cost like a buck at Lowe's. tongue.gif

Actually I did do some reviews when I was younger. But the space is so crowded with good and bad that I don't bother any more.

However, I believe in the 30 years or so I've been working on computers I have come to know what makes a good review and what doesn't. I am also entitled to my opinion. I know very well (as many people here do) how to treat equipment, how to prepare for a review, and how to follow instructions. Apparently some people don't. I'm not saying he sucked or anything, he just doesn't impress me (doesn't stand out in the crowd). Don't say "build custom rigs" like it's a hard thing to do.

How can you check their speeds if they're plugged into the block? Or are you referring to the pump speed? If you're looking at the CPU fan speed you're actually looking at your pump, not the fans.

If you will notice, when you press the button on the block the CPU_FAN RPMs do not increase although the fans speed up. That's because the only thing plugged into the CPU_FAN header is the tac from the pump (1 wire).

How do I know?
I press the button, Stick my ear to it hold my hand over the fans.

Yeah, I wondered about that for a few secs too. I guess they did the right thing though. I was wondering why they didn't rout the fans through the block and into the CPU_FAN header, but I guess it's because they have no way to tell for sure what the power draw will be of the fans the customer is using. They could be high power fans and there could be four of them, so I guess they were making sure no one over-draws the CPU_FAN header by getting power from the molex instead of the header, and controlling the fans from the block. The only thing the pump tac signal is really for is to prevent a CPU_FAN error and I suppose being able to keep an eye on the pump speed is a good thing too.

I am either going to purchase the Corsair link commander for controlling the H100 fans, or if it it takes too long to come put I will pick up two more Scythe 1900 RPM PWM fans and make a four way PWM splitter so my motherboard can control all four fans. I don't like having to open the case to turn the fans up. A nice little addition would have been a small two wire cable to plug into the block with a press button switch on one end. That would let us mount it outside the case so we could turn the fans up without opening. That would be a pretty easy mod too I guess

Just got my H100 this afternoon in the mail from TigerDirect. I probably won't put it on for a day or two. I'm still undecided about the fans I'm going to use. I've pretty much decided NOT to use the stock fans. Right now I'm leaning towards two 38mm fans in push. Thinking these will be perfect:

I'm also considering using the Yate-Loon SH's I already have, but I think the Panaflo L1B's will be better and definitely quieter. If I do go with them I'll run them at full speed off the mobo.

I'm right with you on that one " Corsair Link" Sooner I get one ordered the better, Its starting to feel like exercise keeping removing the panel lol
These stock fans are working pretty well though.

If temps go up,
Doesn't the pump automatically kick up, Even without the button?

Thats a good idea. Have me thinking now biggrin.gif
