I bought the 200mm fan for the door and would like to use it. So when I put it in the normal config at the rear of the case the hoses hit the fan and the door was too tight.
How are people setting up H50's in their phantoms. My previous set up peaked at 75c during 12 hours of prime. Right now I ran prime for like 2 minutes and hit 80c.
This is exactly why I returned mine. Crappy airflow. I don't have a H50, but the Kuhler 920. Same difference. I mounted mine on top in the empty 200mm fan slot push/pull. I tried it in the back. I tried it in the 5 1/4 drive bays with the door open. No matter where I put it, it sucked.
The fans ran near 100% to keep the temps at the same as where they are in my case with 30% fans.
