I am doing idle and load testing for exhaust fans as we speak, I already have the intake results ready. Stay tuned

Opinion isn't fact.

I have done my own testing today. I'm getting it all together. H60 with two AP15's, intake vs exhaust. I'll post it all in the GT thread/watercooling section/this thread when it's done. But I can tell you already that intake got better temps than exhaust.
Well the fact is i have tested in numerous positions and exhaust works best. Also check the H50 thread on here as they also recommend exhaust.
Intake will give you a 1-2c cooler cpu for 8-10c case temp increase.
Fact.

However, the H-series are very good at sending a lot of heat out of that radiator, and if you run it as an intake then you will be sending a lot of hot air into your case - this might be detrimental, especially if you have graphics cards with struggling stock coolers.
Personally, I prefer to run my unit in exhaust for better health of my system - and if you have a good amount of intake into your case somewhere near your radiator, you'll see very little temperature difference between intake and exhaust.
Here is a blog directly from Corsair; it includes some of the testing they did on Push/Pull setups.

Thats why i was asking if the roof fan would work better for me as a intake blowing cold air onto my H60 as a exhaust.

Not really, because hot air rises. Top fans are always suited to exhaust, it's just the way air works... which is also why bottom fans are good at intake... as well as bring dust into the case

Why mount the rad up top It will give you higher temps... Front intake like in the other pic is ideal. Anyway, my results:

So, there are still too many people running their radiators as exhaust, with one fan or two in push/pull. I have personally tested both configurations in push/pull. The results are below!

Test Setup, CPU Overclock & Other Hardware:

CPU: AMD 955BE @ 4GHz, 1.416v, 20x200. NB at 2800MHz with 1.285v, HTT at 2400MHz at stock voltage.
RAM: 2x2GB G.Skill PI Black @ 1600MHz 8-8-8-24-2T
MB: ASRock 890GX Extreme4 R2.0
PSU: Silverstone ST60F-P Strider Plus 600W
CASE: CoolerMaster Storm Scout


Intake

Ambient temp: 15c
Idle temp: 24c
Load temp: 51c


Pictures:

Idle



Load



Exhaust

Ambient temp: 15c
Idle temp: 26c
Load temp: 55c


Pictures:

Idle



Load



Conclusion

At least in my case (situation and which case I use, pun not intended), intake gets better idle and load temperatures. Differences in ambient, case, CPU, overclock and voltage will all have an affect on temperatures. You can see the results, so I would say it is safe to say that having the fans set as intake will work better in all scenarios, as cool air coming through the rad from outside, and the air exhausting through the top case fan should in theory and in practice, beat exhausting already warm air through the radiator and out the rear of the case. Also keep in mind that the fan against the radiator and not the case will be fighting for air with the top exhaust fan. Warm air rises, which is why it makes sense to run intake in most cases, as the cool air will come in through the rear, and be exhausted by the top fan.

Other Notes

It's currently the coldest month of the year in Australia. We even had a small amount of snow a few days ago. Obviously my ambient temp is quite cold (even for me!) and it affects idle and load temps. In the northern hemisphere it is summer. The higher ambients will also affect your temperatures. There's not a lot that can be done about that, besides aircon, which I don't have, so winter is overclocking season

I hope this testing will make people realise running intake on radiators, especially these all in ones units, is the way to better temperatures. Better temperatures means more voltage can be added and you can achieve a higher overclock!

You completely miss the point of h50 as an exhaust,it means you dont fill your case with heat. Did you check your GPU temps during all this? i think not.
I hope you realise that the H50 club has done a lot more testing in this dept...
I have run my H50 as intake bottom front,top front,front top and rear exhaust. front top was best as an exhaust for me.
Post your findings in the H50 thread and see what they say.

I don't have a GPU atm. Running integrated. GTS 450 is in the mail. Check the HWMonitor screens, nothing for GPU. The top fan deals with the hot air coming into the case from the rad. Which is optimal when mounted top back. If it's in the front like yours then it's a whole different story.

Right.....so what your saying is its fine as long as i dont run a graphic card?
98% of the users here run 2 or more graphic cards,i run 2 myself...
You should of waited till your card came before your testing...especially your hot nvidia,wonder how you will feel once that overheats.
