Lapped H60 and fan situation...

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Tore down the rig to clean it and fix up some wiring that had been bothering me for awhile...

Since I was in the machine I figured I'd clean up the Rad (had some dust collection going on) and figured " WTH, I'll lap the thing"...

This is what I ended up with:

450

Went straight to 2000 grit dry. Not the best jump in the world but it is for sure much better than it was. (Bang up job)

I got really tired of the sound of the corsair fan in pull with the Excalibur in push. The Excalibur provides much more air in push than the stock corsair fan but has a very different "air buffet" meaning the air pulsates in a manner that when used with the corsair it makes a very annoying air noise when fans ramp to full speed...

With that said, I decided to nix the corsair fan and mount the rad to the case and push with only the Excalibur.

The results are very nice actually! I have the same temps, (I saw 1c max load lower, but I consider that error margin) with the one fan.

The temps are also more responsive, meaning the temp drop is much quicker instead of lingering.

I know I'm backed up close to the thermal limits of this rad, but since I recieved nice results with the one fan now I am now wondering if a higher cfm (good pressure) fan might help...

I'm currently looking at these:

Cooler Master Blade Master

Air Flow (CFM): 21.2 - 76.8 CFM
Air pressure (mmH2O): 0.40 – 3.90 mmH2O

Cooljag Everflow
Max. Airflow: 110.03 CFM
3.12 m^3/min
Max. Static Pressure: 3.26 mmH2O

Needs to be a PWM fan. I'm leaning towards the CoolJag... out of curiosity as well as spec. Anyone have any experience with this fan?

Or should I just go for the gold and get a PWM delta? biggrin.gif :

Delta AFB1212SHE
CFM: 151.85


Thanks for lookin'

Well the CoolerMaster's CFM is not as nice as the other 2, and the Delta is king for CFM.

All comes at a cost though, look at the dba rating of the Delta!

So whatever you want. Usually CFM =directly proportional to DBA rating

hence the PWM requirement... wink.gif

What do ya think about that CoolJag? There is limited info on the fan... but having nearly 30 more cfm and the same pressure as the blademaster makes it interesting ...

A 2400rpm ball bearing? Its going to be loud. You also shouldn't trust manufacturer specs.

Nice lap job thumb.gif

If you dont mind noise, I also found the Ultra Kaze 2000 (38mm) to be an good unit. Ive used them with my H-50 (both CPU & GPU cooling) and my H100. They are amazing in P/P setups.

I actually really like the UK 2k's ... I just wish they where PWM fans...

So baba ya think the CoolJag's will be noisy eh? Ball bearings are noisier I assume? (aside fromt eh fan speed)


Wish it wasn't $15 each... $10 would be more acceptable...

Do you have those on a fan controller? I know that my UK 3000s would click when I used them on my fan controller.

Yeah, ball bearing fans can be loud. I know that my old Silverstone FM-121 was loud.

.

Yes i do but they are always at full tilt. smile.gif

I have heard no click on these...

I found a a UK3 locally stupid cheap...

It was cheap enough that I didn't care if it was a screamer or not. I could at least mess around with it... I snatched it up for the sake of it...

Ran to lowes and grabbed some screws to get it acquainted with the H60...

AND OMG, this thing isn't noisy at all! Even at full tilt the only sound to be heard is the air rush through the rad... not the fan itself. At 2500rpm its no louder than the 3x 180mm in the bottom of my RV02...

Running through its paces and temps have dropped 6c... honestly this is by far my favorite fan purchase.

these fans rock... I only wish it was PWM so I could control it with the MB with separate 12v from PSU.

Thank you Sethy666 for planting that seed... thumb.gif


Maybe I'll look into building a PWM voltage controller... smil3dbd4e4c2e742.gif

Well, I'm sure this topic is probably of no interest to most but I figure I'll share my experience as there is limited information that I've been able to find myself.

Not being able to find solid information on whether or not the CPU Fan header would support the UK3 spec amperage, I went ahead and hooked it up being confident enough in my capability to monitor the current draw.

What I've found is that the CPU fan header on my ud3 is more than capable of the .63 amp draw of the full load current draw of the uk3. With the CPU smart fan ability set the voltage regulation it works flawless even with the fan's initial 1.6 amp startup current draw. (Which amazed me btw). So this fan does draw a insane amount of inrush current but is remarkably low (.63 measureable) amp draw and full tilt from the fan header.

This allows the fan to be operable with full CPU temp / load coltrol via the BIOS. This alleviates the need for a pwm or fan controller in my case.

So if any one else is curious, the 990fxa boards will support a UK off its fan header.

I'm very happy with the noise and opporation of this fan and very happy with it.

ADDED:
Sorry for the kryptic nature of this post as I'm typing from my phone wink.gif
