Yes, but depending on the CPU you have and how much you OC it you might not like the temps. A push/pull setup with some good fans like CM BladeMasters that have a lot of static pressure will probably lower your cpu temps by a couple of degrees C over just using one of them as a push fan.

You need to click on the User CP at the top of this page, then scroll down the left side to the Add System link and enter in your system specs in as much detail as possible. By that I mean 2 x 2gig G.Skil PC2-8500 CL5 ram instead of 4 gig ram, etc. That way we have some idea of what we are dealing with.

The Scout has more than enough room. I have an H70 and two Ultra Kaze 3000's in push/pull. The ultra kazes are thicker than your average 120mm fan -- 3/4 the thickness of the H70's dual-thickness rad themselves. I have it all mounted in the front drive bay as an intake and then two high rpm fans on the side window to suck out the hot air. So far, I haven't noticed any higher temps fromt his configuration, and the processor gets fresh, cool air from the front of the case.

What do you think? I thought of playing with the 2600K like T2600 or T2000 or something like that. But nothing has "wowed" me yet.

Yea i filled it out. Im not gonna be overclocking lots just want it to cool down the cpu. How much better would temps be if i put it as intake instead of exhaust with only one fan
post #17266 of 28613
I just ordered myself one of these!



Its a Black & Decker 18v Combi Drill. As you can see it comes with loads of bits and bobs. All except a case to put it all in. So i will get a tool bag off of my dad. And even better still it was reduced from £139.98 to £49!!!!!

This is my plan for the cooling setup:



But when i told my dad what my plans were he thought up another idea:



What do you guys think? I think its a big thing that no one has really put too much thought on.
Because Corsair are right, you really should have the air blowing in from the back of the case onto the rad.
But then again it will heat up your case temps, motherboard, RAM, GPU ect.

Like my idea in the picture 1. With a fan in the drive bay pushing air in the H50's direction and the one at the front at the bottom of the case blowing air through the HDD's. The air is getting hot before it hits the rad and not cooling the CPU properly.

Its a sticky situation i think, what can i do to keep everything cool at the same time?

I managed to test my system before i had to RMA the board and the setup with the cooling was like this:



And if i remember correctly i would get temps of around 33 degrees idle and i think it was 66 degrees on full load using Prime 95. Is that good?

My opinion is a push fan is more beneficial than a pull fan if only one can be used. (But you should really use both.)

The PSU will suck air from below and blow out the back unless you turn it over, then it'll suck from the case and blow out the back, it will never blow out the bottom

The problem with that would be that the rest of the interior of the case would heat up more which would open up a hole nother can of worms into the mix. Stick with it as an exhaust.

Personally, i have my H70 in my 5.24 bays as an intake... in a push/pull configuration and it works wonderfully. The back and top exhaust's are plenty to carry any heat from the H70 away and out of the case and i have zero problems with keeping the case cool (along with the bottom front as an intake).

In fact, doing this has actualy improved my CPU temps by 2-3 degrees on average then the exhaust on the back, or intake on the back (i tried it all ways to see what would work best)

I used the metal bay covers to secure the front fan to the case, then that fan is secured to a shroud, and the shroud is then secured to the H70's Rad. Otherwise the H70's hoses wouldnt Reach for me.



and then I added the pull fan on the back.



Didnt have to buy, or do any case mods, the front metal bay covers actualy fit the 120mm fan holes perfectly.

This really keeps the inside of my case nice and tidy.. im going to miss this setup when i go water cooling
