H50 mod fans

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Ive been modding a H50, and have gotten it to where i like the way it looks in my case:

450
(Radiator has been raised to be slightly above the pump level)

Im using 2 stock h50 corsair fans; 1 on each 120mm rad in a push configuration. Im reasonably pleased with my temps; AMD 8120 @ 4.75ghz @ 1.44v @ 57C 8 hours of prime, but they are soooo loud!!!

I have two questions:

1. As you can see from the pictures, im alittle pressed for space. I have two options.
a. I can add a /pull fan to the outside of the rear radiator for a push/pull, and leave the top the way that it is.
b. remove the /push fan on the rear rad, add a pull fan. Which would let me add a fan shroud to the top radiator giving me a 120mm push, 180mm pull.

2. What 120mm fans should i get to replace the corsairs.

Please feel free to offer any suggestions you have.

1. This is just my limited knowledge speaking, but those fans seem to be fighting for air with their closeness and different orientations. Maybe you could try mounting both rads on the top of the case and see if temps drop? Also, i'd do a push-pull on both rads, mounting one fan on the "outside" of the case (between the inside of the case and the meshed plastic).

It looks with some tubing management you could fit both rads on the top

2. Some of the best fans you could choose, which are silent, are the Gentle Typhoons. They're expensive and a bit rare as they tend to go out of stock anywhere they are on sale, but on Aquatuning they're cheap.

First off all, thanks for the reply. +rep

Im going to work on re positioning the rear rad tonight. They will both fit up top im sure, space wont be an issue. The issue is the top fans are 140mm. So the rad doesn't mount properly. I have to zip tie them in place.

I wold love to just get a 280mm rad, but its not really in the budget right now. Nor do i think the H50 pump could handle it......

So, i would love to do: 120mm - radiator - Shroud(120mm-140mm) - 140mm.

The problem is i cant find such a shroud anywhere....so ive tried to think how i could make one that looks decent. Im drawing blanks so far.

Those fans look serious. I was going to replace my 2x120mm intakes up front as well as 2x for the rads.....but $60 on fans is a pretty penny to spend!!

Maybe ill pull the trigger on 2 for the radiators now, and get something cheaper for the front. Any suggestions for reasonably priced intake fans? (or more budget friendly rad fans?)

Other fans you can take a look at, at least until you can afford GT's, are Yate Loons. They're 120mm, very cheap, and performance-wise, better than the GT's (at least the High speed ones are) but the con is that they do are noisier than the GT's, and due to the cheaper sleeve bearing (GT's have ball bearing which is more friendly to mount horizontally) they aren't as friendly mounted horizontally for too long (at least without maintenance like proper lubing). But you cannot deny paying $16 for four High speed or Mid speed fans (plus shipping it goes to $21-$22, but yeah, with that much you could only afford one GT) it's pretty attractive.

I can handle 33db and 70cfm 4x shipped for $21.32 smile.gif Thank You - Thank You!~

If anyone has any suggestions as to my mounting problem, feel free to chime in.

I know that radiators are very sensitive to pressure. Will running 120mm - rad - shroud - 140mm cause issues?

I can always just get a sheet of aluminum, cut out 2x 120mm ports, and mount it to the top of my case. The take out the 140mm's and the hardware, and mount 120mm - rad - 120mm.
