cooler master v8

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
i have the cooler master v8 the max on the fan speed now is 2000rpm i think, would putting a 2400 to 2600rpm fan help temps at all? my temps are good i just figure the lower the better....biggrin.gif

It sure would but I would just suggest getting a fan with higher static pressure, it would help more. I have 2 Mid speed yate loons on my V8 in push pull and the temps are great. I just used a zip tie to get the 2nd one attached. If you have the money I would buy 2 Gentle Typhoon AP-15 or if not get 2 Mid yates and enjoy the great temps. This way you wont have to move up to a much louder fan smile.gif

Click on my bone dry rig and you can see what it looks like with 2 fans.

I believe the Yate loon is about equal since temps didnt really change much for me so I suggest getting 2 if you pick that one but a single AP-15 will lower your temps, it had more static pressure than both. You really cant beat the cooling to price ratio of 2 of the yates in push pull though, its what I recommend if you dont want to spend the money on 2 AP-15s.

I´d change the heatsink or add 3 fans on it 1 120mm and 2x 80 mm

Please excuse any ignorance / noobness in what I am about to post here.

I too own the CM V8, and I have a couple questions about your pictures. I see the case fan and I see one fan attached to the right hand side of the cooler itself, when I read the post I was picturing two fans tie wrapped on either side of the cooler. I see that the case fan is close enough where it's effect on the cooler would be viable, however.

Here comes the potential noob question. Which direction have you set up the push/pull? In some Youtube videos and general discussions I have read, the cooler, when installed with the logo facing the exact way you have it (and I), pushes to the right, towards the front of the case.

When I put my hand in to feel the force of the fan, I really cannot feel too much airflow coming out that direction, I can feel a lot of airflow through the bottom (near where the sink and CPU meet), but I cannot really get a sense as to what direction the air is blowing.

Ergo, do you have the case fan pushing in towards the cooler and the black fan sucking out from the cooler, or is it the opposite way around?

I am going to be blatantly honest here at the possible cost of taking ridicule, however, hither to now I have always had downward facing coolers on my CPU's and have had an A/C cradle fan blowing on high speed into the case itself for cooling. This has always worked for me despite looking absolutely Mickey Mouse. I want to clean this up a bit and solely rely on internal cooling for my rig, thus putting the side panel back on my case, this is why I asked what I asked above.

Sorry to necro an older thread, but since I found it in a search on the V8, I figure it's better to ask here than post a new thread.

Thank you in advance!
