post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Whats ur fan orientation, by the book ie suck into case ?

or both suck out or 1 in 1 out ?

stock fans or something quieter ?

Ive got this (obviously lol) currently stock fans both sucking into case

Idle 28c load 60c (4.5GHZ i5) - is that good ?

Can I make quieter ?

Do I need to make cooler ?

Cheers

The stock fans are pretty loud. I have an H70 which is pretty much the same as the H80 just the previous generation.

I have the fans set in push pull configuration so both fans are exhausting air out of the case via the rear.

Your temps seem decent to me. I have my 2500k clocked at 4.4GHz on 1.26v and my max temps are around 55c

If you want quieter I'd suggest looking into Gentle Typhoons.

Yeah, stock corsair fans are known to be loud. GTs and Yate Loons are good alternatives.

I've tried a sickleflow fan a couple years ago as a ordinary case fan but I remember the LEDs dying out pretty quickly, after 6-7 months of use. Not sure how well they will perform for the H80 radiator.

I have the H80, and tbh. It really isnt that loud. You might hear it if you have your case next to your ear on the table. But, at balanced mode, I cant hear a thing. I have my HAF-X on the floor next to my left leg. The Corsair fans are quite good for static air flow. But other fans will probably do well. I tried using my spare 2x P/P TurbineMasters Mach 1.8 on them and reduced temps by 2 degrees. But when the 2 fans are connected to the pump unit, they keep losing power intermittently, and they are quite loud when attached in P/P to the mobo. Some fans apparently have compatibility issues with the pump unit, strange but thats what Corsair's customer support told me :/

Pull air into the case. It reduced my temps by 4 degrees.

cool, cheers. My case is at ear level & 3 to 4 feet away (I can touch with a lean lol)

I probably isnt that loud, my problem is for the 1st week or so Id done this build, I had stock fan which was really quiet, not Ive the H80, I really hear the fans. Ive got my manual dial default as full, maybe I'll turn it down & see if it makes a difference
