Coolermaster V6GT with 1 fan.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have a CM V6GT running in the normal push pull setup on a Gigabyte Z68 UD4 with a 2500k CPU. I run a few virtual machines and Edit alrge images (and do photomerges) in CS5 and wanted more ram than I had (I had 8gb, wanted 16gb).

Anyhow the V6 blocks off the first ram slot....so I figured I would remove the fan that blow (the push on the right hand side) and just leave the pull (on the left). Anyhow...didn't notice much difference in temps. Ram Prime 95 for an hour and got this :

128


Seems a bit low to me for just having a 'pull' fan, I am clocked to 4GHZ at 1.25 volts.
I am now able to run all ram slots and have 16GB.

Is this a sane thing to do...just have a pull fan ? Case is a Cm 430 Elite with rear exhaust, exhaust top roof fan, side fan and front fan.

If it keeps the temps down then it's sane smile.gif

Thanks for the replies. I just thought it was strange that the HSS still worked very well with just a PULL fan. I could imagine a push would be better, or maybe not. I did remember people running Scythe HSS's with pull only and getting very low temps too.

After some experimentation, I went back to 8Gb ram so I could the one fan on just the right hand side blowing through, I found if the speed of the exhaust fan on the case was sufficient, then you didn't really need the left fan, 'pulling' as well. Now temps are the lowest i've seen, 46 degrees on the hottest core after an hour of Prime 95.

I also removed the top cowling and button/wire assembly for the led light, and it has a nice industrial look....
