Question for scout Owners:

When using the H50 is it best to have push / pull fitted exhausting air out at the back or is the radiator better in the front 5.25inch bays as an intake? If so, how did you do that with the blanking panels being in the way?

At the moment i have 2 x Scythe Gentle Typhoons in push / pull exhaust on the back of my scout but temp is around 39 idle and 58 under load when OC'd!

I run it as a modded exhaust,it will fill your case with hot air very quickly as an intake.
Use the blanking panels as mount a for the H50 if you insist on an intake setup.

The idle seems about right for that OC as mine idles around 35-36 with the same cooler and I have gentle typhoon 1850's as push pull as exhaust out the back. I have every other fan as an intake, so front, top and 2 side fans.

Mine doesn't go above 48c whilst gaming though.

Are all your other fans intakes? how many other case fans have you got?

EDIT: My fans arn't running all on full either. The typhoons are at 1320rpm and my side intakes are at 810rpm. I have the stock top and front fans running at full though.

Well i would say have have the H50 in the front. I have mine mounted in the front using one blanking plate, one of the red LED fans mounted on the front of the RAD and the corsair fan that came with the kit. It is also worth mentioning am running a push pull setup. I get much much better temps with it mounted in the front bays rather than the rear.

This of it this way if you have it mounted at the rear as an exhaust then you are using all the hot air in your case to "cool" the RAD. But if you mount it in the front you are getting fresh cool air through your RAD and if your PC is anything like mine it wont rise above 40 when gaming so it wont really affect the rest of your PC as long as you have either 1 fan at the rear or even better if you had 2. The only time the temps will rise above that temp is when i run prime 95.

Take a look at this picture i took at lunchtime today when i was surfing the net. Don't take any notice of the THRM and TMPIN's because those are not accurate



Now this picture was taken after an afternoons non stop gaming. (I had family round so everyone had goes on different games)

My temps are about 5*C cooler with the h50 set as intake in the 5" bays.

Thanks guys for all the info on the copyright thing.
post #22189 of 28613
thanks for the replies....hmmm what to do with it! I just cant help but think not much air is sucked in mounting a fan in the 5.25inch bay because the blanking plates have small holes in and then the mesh on the front panel with a metal blanking plate! How have you done yours nitrous?

Those temps i posted were when using PRIME95.

In gaming, I check temperatures at it hovers around the 45c mark .

Well this is how i did mine.



I want to cut a curved edge in the blanking plate so i can see the whole fan.
