Push/Pull is really not needed unless you're doing some heavy over clocking. The stock H50 is really a well thought out system. To answer your question neither of the fans need to be hooked up to your board if you have adapters and would rather run them off directly from the PSU or you can run them both from the mother board. Your choice.

im paranoid, want the best temps (within £££)
so it can be connected to the PSU, will that be using the wire thing (what other things are connected to, such as fans) or DIRECTLY to the PSU (such as GPU)

you would need something like this to run off the PSU.


more often than not if you buy a new fan their will be something like it in the box. and i think the scout comes with one or two but i could be mistaken... haven't looked at the hardwear pack in a while lol. ill run down and look

EDIT:
i just went and looked at the wiring for my scout and you can leave the red LED fan attached the way it is so that its running off the LED switch button on the front. but the things i was thinking of in the little white box have the wrong end on them

so in your situation what i would do (if you go with the H50) is plug the pump into the CPU header (and set it too always be at %100) then attach the red fan to the front of the rad blowing out the back of the rad into the H50 stock fan blowing out the back of the case.

the red fan would be plugged into the big harness the way it is normally would be and i would stick the H50 fan on the closest header on the mobo.

(this is assuming you dont have the PSU adapter or a fan controller)

Those are all good coolers. You just need faster fans if your temps are high after install.. Make sure it is seated properly and also make sure that you coat the cpu with the Thermal paste in a thin even coat.

hey guys, im gonna be water cooling my system and this pic shows(my skillz at paint lol) my general idea as to where everything will be placed. I got the radiator and found out it wont fit at the rear so im just gonna mount 2 120mm fans on it like a sandwich and zip-tie it to the drive bay area because i have good space there. does this all look good? any advice or tips are apreciated greatly


post #11119 of 28613
it looks good to me.

so long as you have the loop going Rez=> pump => rad => block => rez

i was planing something similar in my project build only with 2 rads but then decided to take it a step farther
