Mounting H60 rad directly to case?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

Question.. Could I mount my H60 rad directly to the back of my 650D with the fan on the back pushing air out of the case? Will pulling air through the rad make any difference in performance compared to pushing through the rad? Should I go with Push/Pull? (cause I don't like the amount of space the 2 fans and rad will take up).

Thx

Also, will H70 Core work with one Gentle Typhoon pulling air through. I'm planning on 2600K@4ghz.

you mean setting it up as an exhaust? (see below)

450

this is perfectly fine, just make sure you get good air coming in to your case. also, i dont think you need a push/pull setup for h60 because the rad is thin anyway.

I think he means can he screw/secure the radiator to the case directly (w/ only 1x fan on the inside part of the rad as push/exhaust).
If I'm correct in that assumption, I don't see why not, but you'd need shorter screws I'd think since the ones provided are meant to go through a fan + rad.

Yes @candy_van, that's what I meant. The screws I'll be able to find, I was just wondering if there would be no obstructions. Would an H70 core with the thicker rad with one GT pushing be better then the H60? Or will the H60 cool my 2600K just fine?

the screws could go from inside of the case ---> through fan (25mm) ---> through case (~1mm) ---> into radiator

Yea it would perform a little better, but a H60 should handle your 2600k just fine, esp with some good static pressure fan(s) like GTs smile.gif

the thicker core may help temps a little but not drastically..
either way, it SHOULD cool your chip ok @ 4GHz, depending on what VCore youre at
since youre going to have the rad on the outside of the case anyways, you may even consider a second fan mounted to the radiator, also on the outside of the case
