Define R3 + H60

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello! I have spent the last few days scheming my next build. The important stuff I'm thinking about:

AMD FX-8150
Fractal Design Define R3 Black
ASUS Crosshair V
Corsair H60

The case is small, I get that. I am in love with it though. I decided I wanted a Corsair water block for the 8150 and I can't have a H80 or H100 because they are far to big. You also have to remember the heatsinks all over the mobo will also make it even more cramped.

So I have settled on an H60 which I assume will sufficiently cool a moderately OC'd 8150, correct me if I am wrong. What I am wondering is this. Can I make it suck that the H60 acts as a rear fan? As in, I'll put the rear 120mm fan that comes with the case at the front as the second fan, and then make it such that the H60 draws air out of the case, acting as an exhaust. I am also guessing this will create the slight positive pressure I desire.

Will the H60 cool effectively this way? TIA!

Yuck, AL rad and copper plate. What ticks me off most about this stuff is they dont bother to tell you the potential wattage that it can cool.

I dont know much about the Corsair coolers, but i know you could possibly to better with used Swiftech gear.
