I had heard about the odd instructions from Corsair about making sure the fan pulls fresh air in across the rad and blast the hot air into the case... which seems a little odd, but I'd also seen reviews where they questioned this and set up the radiator on the rear exhaust as you would any normal fan setup and they actually got a better cooling result.
I like your plan though, gets the radiator out of the way and plenty of room for a push pull set up, although it does still blow the hot air into the case.... *ponders* anyone got any thoghts on that?
Anyway, love the setup deezaal
Well the way I see it is this, you have one large fan at the bottom bringing cold air in, the top fan is blowing cold air over the rad which on my setup, still stays relatively cool, the rear and upper exhaust fans are still blowing out cold air despite me just playing farcry 2 on very high settings for over an hour. So blowing a little warm air into the system simply gets exhausted by the upper fan pretty rapidly since they are both uptop, leaving the lower fan to do its job of bringing in the cool air.
Again I know it's only a low power dual core cpu and only an 8800 GT but in my old case, both these were enough to generate a fair amount of heat. Cpu used to get upto 65c + in my old case using the old HS/fan. dropped to 55-56c with old HS when I got my scout and now it doesn't rise above 38c with the H50.
I actually feel cold sitting next to my pc lol.
The real test will come when I perform the CPU/MOBO/RAM upgrade, just can't decide between i7 920 or phenom II 955.
I'm not a fan of Intel but theres no denying that i7 920 is a monster.
Edit :Those Antec drive bays, what material are they made from?
Can you buy them separately?Edited by DeeZaal - 9/24/09 at 9:45am
