HAF932 w/ H60 water cooler, to much intake not enough exhaust? Opinions wanted plz

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,
I have my HAF932 on the way and had a question, hoping someone can clarify

The Corsair H60 water cooler wants me to remove the rear 140mm exhaust fan and install the fan that comes with the cooler, but they want the fan as a intake not a exhaust.
It would seem to me that a setup like that could be detrimental to the case cooling and airflow.

So if I do it like Corsair says to in there instructions I will have:
front 200mm fan=intake
side panel 200mm fan=intake
rear 120mm corasir water cooler fan=intake
top 200mm fan =exhaust

To me that does not seem to be a good setup, 2-200mm fans and 1-120mm fan as intakes with only 1-200mm on top as exhaust
I know positive air pressure is always better but that much positive air pressure seems to be excessive, that much intake air could almost expand the case like a balloon if it was so solidly made, lol

All kidding aside, How do you guys have your case setup? should I disconnect the side panel fan?

Really would love to hear what you guys think, I want to set this case up properly and respect your expertise

My build will be:
HAF932
Cosair TX750w v2 ps
Corsair H60 water cooler
Asus P8Z77-v Deluxe mobo
Intel I5-3570k w/ oc around 4.4 (hopefully)
16 gigs JSkill F3 Sniper series 1600 ram
Samsung 830-256gig SSD for windows
Western Digital 640gig black edition hard drive for data
LG 3d bluray dvd burner
EVGA GTX 580 super clocked gpu
Windows 8 Pro
BenQ XL2420TX Monitor

THANK YOU FOR ANY HELP YOU CAN SEND MY WAY!

Neither fan size nor RPMs tell you how much air a fan will actually move.

You need to know the CFM ratings of those fans and how much the rad fan will push through the rad.
Then you can make a plan for how to implement your setup.

It would also be nice to know the P-Q curves for the fans.
P-Q curves relater how much air a fan will move related to the pressure it will be working against.

From cooler master website, Hopefully this will better determine what I need
Front: 230 x 30 mm red LED fan x 1, 700 RPM, 110 CFM, 19 dBA
Side: 230 x 30 mm standard fan x 1, 700 RPM, 110 CFM, 19 dBA
Top: 230 x 30 mm standard fan x 1, 700 RPM, 110 CFM, 19 dBA

All three fans appear to be identical, just the front fan has leds in it.

Here is the spec's I believe you are asking for
ModelR4-LUS-07AR-GP
Dimension200 x 200 x 30 mm
Speed (R.P.M.)700 RPM
Air Flow (CFM)110 CFM
Air pressure (mmH2O)0.595 mm H2O

Noise Level19 dBA
Bearing TypeSleeve Bearing
Fan Life Expectancy30,000 hrs
Rated Voltage12 VDC
Current (Ampere)0.16 A (Max 0.28 A)

Corsair H60 fan spec from Corsair
Fan dimensions: 120mm x 120mm x 25mm
Fan speed: 2000RPM +/- 10%
Fan airflow: 54 CFM
Fan dBA: 30.85 dBA
Fan static pressure: 2.36mm/H20


Thank you for your advise
