Need help with a corsair H80 that just got new fans for.

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
The old fans are 3pin but the h80 can use 4pin too. My question is.. should i plug them in the H80 or use a fan splilitter and plug it in on my MB? (BTW i got some blade masters)

The whole point of this is i'm trying to keep my rad temp down as much as possible for folding since i can't get a bigger closed loop cooler.

H80 has no way to measure fan RPM or control speed. H80i does. Which one are you talking about?

If you're just running two fans for CPU, I'd plug them into the motherboard CPU_FAN headers and monitor/control fan speed via those headers.

it wont hurt not to have the fans plugged into the h80?

is this a 80 or 80i

well... if all you want is max cooling, then you can just get an adapter and plug it directly onto the PSU biggrin.gif this way it will run at 100% all the time.

I have this


would that work? Also i would really like the fans to spin down when im just on the internet.. do i need a fan control?

I know this is a "touchy subject" but what fans are going to provide the best heat dissipation? do i want static pressure or CFM... im lost lol sadsmiley.gif

if you want the fan to spin down, then you don't want to run it off the PSU smile.gif

the silverstone splitter will work, but it's not ideal since it pulls power from the header rather then the PSU. with PWM splitter, you want to pull the power from PSU while pulling the PWM signal from the header. something like the akasa pwm splitter would be more ideal.

as for what type of fan, you want static pressure when pushing/pulling the air pass obstacles like air filter or heatsink. you can go with airflow if you aren't pushing/pulling air pass any obstacles.

maybe i should return those fans.... i need the best static pressure i can get since im OC" at 4.7 with temps touching 80F on 1 core only and the rest are 3-4 degrees cooler.

you mean 80C? 80F is like room temp in the summer biggrin.gif anyway. 80C is not actually a bad temp for 3770K if you have not delid the chip and put some good goop on it(assuming you are talking about temps during prime) smile.gif remember your chip starts throttling at around 90C and thermal shutdown at 105C so 80C is a OK number for benching.

can you recommend a great TPU paste
