Corsair H80i Question

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I am going to be mounting a Corsair H80i cooler in my build and have a question about the push/pull configuration. While I understand the concept, I just want to ensure this is the best way to do this before I go ahead.

My current air flow is two 120 mm fans in the front (intake), two 120 mm fans side panel (intake), two 120 mm fans top (exhaust). So it makes sense that I would go with a push/pull configuration for the H80i.

Any help would be appreciated. smile.gif

Thanks

Fen

Hi Fen
There have been a lot of discussions on case airflow on here, and there are several camps on how and where the airflow should go.
The H80i should be able to mount on the rear of the case push/pulling air through the radiator to the outside, this may (I say may) mean that you don't want the rear top or possibly even both top fans exhausting, as they are likely to either steal air from the H80i or pull hot air up from the gpu that is then shoved through the H80i radiator

Experiment with it, see which configuration blows out the most heat at the back when the system in under load (thats how I test.

Thanks much . . . Once I get it mounted, I'll experiment with the load and configs and find the best way.

Cheers

Using 2 x 120mm fans on your H80i will only increase the air pressure through the radiator, the air flow volume will remain the same as a single fan.

Sorry but that is incorrect.
The push fan on front of radiator blows air into radiator creating pressure and the pull fan on the back sucks air out thereby lowering the air pressure in the radiator. wink.gif

Sorry for the confusing information, but doyll is correct about the air pressure within the radiator space. I was commenting on the overall airflow of 2 fans in series and the effect of airflow/pressure ratio within the case itself.
