Yea thats why i didnt want to do intake. Ill try get some fans for push pull.Thanks to everyone for their help

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
Thats a good idea but what if you play games or run a heavy application and the CPU heats up to 50 degrees. All that heat is going to heat up the ram and motherboard before it gets out the exhaust.

Although i do like what you have done. I think i might consider that as one of my options.

The inside temp of my case doesn't heat up more then a few degrees even while running stress tests in prime95, Also keep in mind that's with my i7 clocked to 4 gigs so its producing its share of heat.

Honestly, the air across the rad moves too fast to really pick up a whole lot of heat before its exhausted out the top or back of the case so it hasn't been a problem at all. If your case is heating up, its because your not getting rid of the air fast enough so hot air is building up. However, my rear and top fans move more combined CFM then intake fans, so its basically trying to suck more air out of the case then the front fans can provide, which means no stale hot air sits around heating up the other components.

My Video cards, my ram, and my North/south bridge all have normal temp ranges when my CPU is at 100% load.

Don't get me wrong, im not saying this setup is laboratory tested and so the best way of running an H70, all im saying is that ive played around with my system for about a week, ran my H70 as an exhaust, an intake, fan outside the computer, fan inside the computer, push, pull, both.. you name it, ive tried it. Even tried it as an intake and exhaust at the top instead to see if it made any difference.. Out of all the configurations i did, this worked best for me, and got me my lowest temps. Your setup might provide different results.

I also have a solid window, and eliminated the side vents as i didnt want the negitive pressure in the case pulling air in from the side, instead of the front, so that could be a factor between setups as well.

This was my last Test with Prime95 running at 100% load for 45 minutes when I took the screen captures. Done about a week ago and where I stopped tinkering with my system.. Now im going to a custom watercooling loop just for something to mess with over the winter... Not sure whats going on with Fan3.. thats my H70 fans, on a Y connector, so i think it might be getting some sort of weird combined reading, but both fans on the H70 are 1500RPM Coolermasters...

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.
Okay.. You know how the other terminators could change themselves into inanimate objects. Just imagine one that has turned itself into a CMSS. Then you play with silver and black and blue accents and make it look almost about to change back into the Cyborg.

Can you tell I love Rugers?? She got 9 of 10 center mass & the 10th was on the line, the grouping was 5 in a 3" circle, the others just outside of that. I made sure we sold the guns before we moved!
im decent with it... first 3 or 4 are usually right where i want them but after that i get a little trigger shy ... i want to say late 60s but im not too sure my dad got it when he was in the army so that narrows it down a little but im not sure at all

i LOVE my Rugers... them and my Remingtons... thats too bad about having to sell them...

Ok so if im going to do push pull on the H50 what are the best fans that are not too loud but have decent airflow. i have to get PWM ones correct?
post #17278 of 28613
A couple of CM BladeMasters would be good. Excellent Static Pressure and PWM control. Not the regular R4's, but the BladeMasters.

Hmm i cant seem to find those fans on performance-Pcs and they dont sell them in my country either. Ive looked at the scythe slip stream fans are they any good?

Slipstreams are fine for case fans, but they don't perform well on heatsinks or rads as they don't have much static pressure so they don't push much air through the fins. If you can't get the BladeMasters I would look for the CM R4's or some Hi Speed Yate Loons.
