Played crisis 2 for an hour today and Aida64 said it averaged 34 and maxed at 41. That's at 1.3v and 4ghz.

Sorry for the insanely nooby question. Having it set up as a push/pull exhaust system, the fan on the inside of the radiator pulls air into the radiator, then the fan at the back connected in between the case and radiator pushes it out the back correct?

Sorry again hehe :/

You got it...

guys i want to ask a question,i found many answers but i'm really confused,on my other pc i have the H50 with 1 Fan,i want to make it pull-push 2 fans,for better temperatures the best is to have a 2.500rpm on intake and a 1.200 on exhaust or the 1.200 on intake and 2.500 exhaust?

Mmmm I don't believe this to be the case however. Because instead of 1 fan using energy(heat source) you now have 4. If you have multiple GPU that you need to cool at that point that would be a great way to do it because the footprint there is bigger than the 230. More coverage. But as I'm pointing out I don't think that it would make a positive impact in any other instance because those fans are going to generate enough kinetic energy and use enough power that any gains your likely to see shouldn't be worth the extra dough spent on them.

I was considering mounting a 480 Rad on the door, but I'm pretty sure even that wouldn't be a good option because accessing the interior would be a royal pain unless using quick disconnects which choke off the water when the door is pulled. Can't think of whom makes them but I'm pretty sure the cost would be considerable.

Well anyway this started out about the multiple fan setup. About halfway back through this thread I believe, someone mentioned the negative aspect of mounting 4 fans on the door. I'm not 100% of the validity I just know a bit about power and the kind of heat that it can generate. I would recommend a power junction for them however. I mounts in the middle of the setup and is powered by a Molex power lead. This would at least give the entire set clean power which should lessen the heat output since not all four fans would be starving.

@Ceaderman -

Yep. I agree. More fans would equal more power which in turn translates to a bit more heat (ex-Navy electricians mate here). That's why I am thinking about using slow speed, as high CFM as I can get along with the lowest possible Db's possible for a setup like that. I will be comparing the wattage difference between the single 230 versus the quad 120's since this is where the heat will be coming from mainly.

I didn't take into consideration the the "clean power" aspect you mentioned and for that I do thank you (+rep coming your way for that!).

I am banking on the case size helping in dissipating any "added or extra" heat that may be generated by the 4 x 120MM fans in comparison to the heat generated by the 230mm fan presently mounted. Maybe it's time to get my son (last year electrical engineering student) to look into this for me as "extra credit" since he wont mow the lawn for me...

Recall what fans were used?

From the picture you can clearly see that there is a "coverage" advantage to using 4 fans versus the single 230. The 230 holes are all contained within the quad fan setup. I would tend to think that if it didn't work, maybe the fan selection was the issue?

I know that on my old 922 having dual fans on the side was better than the 200mm that was originally there BUT I will admit, the 922 is smaller and may have benefited more of the setup. The 932 in being more spacious may "negate" any real effect at the end of it all... who knows.

Will probably use slow speed YL's for this test so it shouldn't cost much anyways. Trick is to get the properly powered, controlled (noise factor) and then have some XSPC temp sensors installed to record before and after. Main reason I am concerned is that with summer around the corner, my ambients will shoot up making cooling an overall issue for me. Has in the past with air cooled setups... not sure if with a WC setup it will be different. I am not really worried for the CPU. I am more concerned for case, NB, SB and GPU temps than anything.

GPU has been behaving perfectly fine. In the 922 when I had the bottom fan installed as intake it rarely went over 58*C. In the 932 my water pump occupy's that fan space and my GPU has reached 66*C. Not much of a concern but if I can lower that temp a bit, I would like to without watercooling it... yet.

I did Pics here:http://www.overclock.net/computer-ca...l#post12754084

My R4 look cool and push a ton of air through my PC. While I could pull them all off and re-try with my 230mm fan I really am lazy and my motherboard is dead right now.


Someone did a dual 230mm mod here: http://www.overclock.net/computer-ca...l#post12382850

Wonder if you some how get four of them on the side of an HAF 932

One more quick question sorry,
In the front of the HAF X, would there be enough room for all of the following?

The included 230mm fan
A 140mm fan place above the 230mm fan
A fan controller
Anddd a DVD drive?

I know there are 6 5.25 drive bays, im just unsure about how much space the 140mm fan above the 230mm fan would leave.

Thanks in advance.
