How much would a dust filter affect my Corsair H50 cooling

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
This is for my build below. At 3.8ghz, at full load, my cores get up to 75c.

I want to get dust filters to prevent dust from getting into the case and also disconnecting the top fan to prevent dust circulation from inside the case. How would this affect my temps?

I could also replace my H50 with an H100i or an NH-D14 for better cooling as well.

I just drilled 2 holes on the non-door side of the case for cable management. It shouldnt affect anything really.

ok are you using 1 front intake fan or are you using 2 front intake fans? and are you using an intake fan on the side panel door?

when you say you want to put filters on there, what kind of filter are you looking at?

While an H100i is most certainly preferable, adding a dust filter to the intake fan on your H50 cooler shouldn't have to much of an effect so long as the fan you are using is a good. That would mean a fan with good static pressure and high CFM. If you're using the stock fan that came with the H50 then you should be fine. However, I couldn't stand the ones that came with my H100i and replaced them. They were effective but hella noisy. You can get good static pressure 120mm fans that run at 1500rpm as their max with 70 or above CFM and reasonable levels of noise....less than 30dBa.

Im using a push/pull method from the back of my case. *BACK GRILL OF CASE* Intake Fan > H50 radiator > exhaust fan. I disconnected the side door fan since it made no difference in my temps (very minimal for my video card)

I am using gentle typhoons but I remember only getting a 1c decrease with them and I regret spending $30 for the fans to be honest. Im not sure how much better an H100i would be.

Considering my GT AP-15 barely made any difference in temps, I dont think these filters will either so I'll probably go that route.

if you are using AP15's you should be fine because AP15 has good static pressure in the 1st place. the problem with filters is when you are using them with low static pressure fans. they cant pull enough air through the filter. but if your fan has good static pressure, then it has no problems pulling air through the filter.
