what fans should i use for h100

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
alright, before anybody says to get some typhoons let me explain the situation. I got a h100 as a prize in a contest. I currently have several fans that I'm not using and would like opinions on which fans to use of the ones I already have rather than go out and get MORE fans. I have the two corsair fans that came with the H100, the corsair rear exhaust fan that came with my 600T and the corsair fan that came with my old H50. I think they are all different, not sure though. I also have 2 aerocool sharks, 4 thermaltake thunderblase fans, and three coolermaster blademaster fans.
what combination or setup should I use for a push pull config?
I can go out and get 2 more sharks or one more blademaster if needed, I just don't want to go out and buy 4 new fans (atleast not right now). Eventually i might get some cougar vortex fans or whatever.

I also have two scythe Ultra Kaze 3000 but I would rather not use them because they are just too loud.

the h series radiators really like high static pressure from fans. I would determine which of your fans has the highest and roll with them.

H100 is a 240mm radiator and not as thick as the old H70 that requires Push and Pull for optimal performances. It will be only 1-3'C differences if you put Push and Pull on H100 unlike H70 shows a 10'C due to a thick and denser radiator.

 

H100 + Stock fans is running fine here with 4.8Ghz 3930k (a hot CPU) max 75'C on load far from 91'C limitation. + It's on the lowest profile fan setting. + It's exhaust from inside.

 

Setting it high to run those fan at 2400RPM will be loud but temp drops down to 67'C ish.

ok, I guess I'll try it with just one set of fans then. maybe with a shroud between the fans and the rad.
Thanks for your quick replies guys.

I personally like the Akasa Viper. It has high static pressure and CFMs. Also it is a PWM fan. I hear the Gentle Typhoons are really good too, but they are hard to find and are not PWM fans.

Also here is a video I made of the viper at the full 1900RPMs pulling through an H60 Rad. ---> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ujzMKyrhyoU&feature=plcp&context=C404c21bVDvjVQa1PpcFMuWIJ5K8DEKVthnYX2KO9uCJnoL0kEvrk%3D
