scythe ultra kaze in push or something. else in push/pull

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
hey everybody got a quick question got a new case coming that as clearance for me to use either my current scythe ultra kazes in a push or pull config but not both. the clearance I have is 132mm total on top and 142mm total in the front. my setup is going to consist of a 3960x and a titan. was also wondering you guys had any recomendations on rads, I have room for 2 x 360's with the thickness listed above.

thanks

Hi there,

For the fans, is it because you already own them and do not wish to buy new ones?

The UKs are 38mm thick, which leaves you 94mm headroom for your top mounted rad and 104mm for your front mounted rad.

If you are dead-set on those fans, then have the front mounted radiator set up in push, forcing air through the radiator and into your case.

The top mounted rad, I would also keep in push, forcing the heated air up and out of the top.

If you have space for a 120/140mm fan in the rear of the case, you could experiment with having that as a filtered intake or exhaust.

As for radiators, it depends what RPM you will be running your fans at. Assuming you are going for around 1500-1800 rpm, then a relatively low FPI rad will benefit you.

You could have a look at alphacool's monsta for your front mount, and perhaps an alphacool ut60 for your top mount.

Monsta - http://www.frozencpu.com/products/16238/ex-rad-411/Alphacool_NexXxoS_Monsta_Triple_120mm_Radiator_-_80mm_Thick.html?tl=g30c95s161
UT60 - http://www.frozencpu.com/products/14857/ex-rad-333/Alphacool_NexXxoS_UT60_Full_Copper_Triple_120mm_Radiator.html?tl=g30c95s161

I have also heard good things about the SR1 from HWLabs - http://www.frozencpu.com/products/9433/ex-rad-163/Black_Ice_SR1_Low_Air_Flow_Optimized_-_360_Radiator_-_Black.html?tl=g30c95s161

I personally use an EK XTX480 with GT-AP15s in push for my cpu and gpu, and get very nice temps.

For future reference, it would be helpful if you listed your budget.

Hope this helps to shed a little light on your question thumb.gif
