Corsair H110

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So, if you look at my rig, I look like a huge Corsair fanboy... Anyways, I splurged and bought a H110 as a stepping stone before I build a custom loop. (I haven't decided whether or not to do Uni blocks on my gfx card with ram heatsinks) Well, after reading so much about how 120MM fans put out better static pressure, I almost wish that I would've gone with a 240MM rad instead. Already having this though, I figure I might as well use it. Although the fans it comes with are horrid. I definitely don't want to use them for long.

My question to you guys or gals, would be which fan would best suit my needs? I plan on doing a push config (I'd love to do a push pull but not enough room in my case.)

I've been looking at two fans in particular, keep in mind though, I'm not dead set on them.

The look isn't a huge deal to me, but I'd prefer a black, red, or grey color scheme to fit the overall design of my case. (Why must you be skin colored, Noctua!) I can't wait until they make the black version.

Woud the Noctua 140s be a good option? I could always just do a pull config and never have them be seen.

Hold on to your horses mate. I see two problems here.

The first fans are too slow (only 1500RPM). I think your stock fans can do about 2400, correct? How will you cool your CPU effectively if the fans cannot go as high? That's a problem.

Also, the second set of fans - they're 140mm? How will you hook that up to the radiator? Also their max speed is 1800RPM, which is not fast enough.

I'd look into other fans mate.. you need ones that can go fast enough and which are static pressure fans as well.

My Corsair H110 is a 280MM radiator. So, 2 140MM fans are needed. Fan speeds are not a concern to me, static pressure and CFM are.

I just went ahead and bought the Noctua A15. Dang these things push some air! I can't wait until next year when they come out with the black version.

I've got an H110 and I have yet to install it. I'm waiting for my fractal design midi r2 to show up. I've been looking for some fans. How have the noctua a15s been with your h110i? Are you seeing similar temps or are the temps not as good as the older, higher rpm fans? Also, do these fans fit OK on the h110? Would you be able to post some pictures?

I actually got the Noctua A14 PWMs. They really push some air. I can upload a picture tonight. They don't vibrate at all, and I have then in a pull configuration exhausting air out of the top of my case. My temps are pretty good, I run around 60C on my 4770k @ 4.5Ghz. I haven't had time to push further, but I definitely will be trying to. I'm actually going to a full custom loop. My wife will be getting this in her build. thumb.gif


As for the previous fans, I did not use any other fans but these. I knew the ones from Corsair were trash, so I didn't even bother installing it with them.
