Question about Corsair H40, Antec Kuhler 620

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am thinking about using one of these all in one coolers for my server.

I wanted my server to be as quiet as possible, so I initially tried running it passively with an Corsair A50 and the top 140 mm fan on the case as the only fan.. It was OK in the winter, but this summer, cpu temps started getting into the upper 40's and low 50's under load (I stream to my iPad and it converts them on the server), so I put the fan on the A50. The temps dropped, but the noise went up.

I was debating getting one of these coolers (no real preference, whichever is cheaper and works best), but I was wanting to use a 140 mm to 120 mm adapter (like this) to use the 140 mm case fan and the cooler without the included fan.

So my question is would the airflow of the 140 mm fan (Antec Tricool on low) create enough airflow to keep the cpu cool?

Why are you freaking out about low-50s? I can't think of any CPU that has problems with low-50's.

EDIT: Better question, if the fan is in back, why are you running your heatsink vertically?

Anyway. Low for the 140mm as far as I can find is ~ 47cfm. That will probably keep the CPU cool with an H40.

Any airflow will do it, and the 140mm fan will be more than enough i think.

I am using an Antec 620, with a 120mm SWIF2, and a Sickleflow on it P/P. Both run at ~1000RPM without noise, and they are cooling my 2500k just enough, wich has double the TDP of your athlon II X2 CPU.

Fan is not in the back, it is in the top.



I blocked off the rear 120 mm fan slot.

I am not freaking out over the temp, I just don't want it that hot.

I'd suggest any of the new Asetek's, it will keep the CPU reasonably cool while being better quality (H40 is still made by Asetek, but I don't know if it's the new or the older design - like H50 was).
