Is there a spot in the 700D/800D where a majority of the people agree a H50/H70 should be mounted and with what fan configurations? Also, what method is best for applying AC5 paste to these things. I'm pissed off that I had to remount it and in doing so had to remove the shinetsu that was on it,
post #1925 of 8668
I mounted the radiator and fan to the upper vent, the middle fan position on the 800D. That seemed to be the best compromise for the tubing length they supply.

As far as the TIM, I use OCZ freeze and use the rice grain method. I never did like the curing time for AS5

edit:
I used the push/pull for best performance and the fans were intaking

My current airflow,



I like that with this configuration I get a positive pressure set up. When I have the fans set as intake on the radiator I notice that my NB temps aren't as cool as with them exhausting. Also with the 140mm fan blowing air into the case at the rear my NB temps have dropped 9c-10c

I'm going to try the prolimatech paste that comes with the Megahalem. Having to factor in AC5 curing times is a pain and confusing as well.

Is that how the rear fan is setup, intaking? or did you reverse it? Also, can you tell if the airflow is intaking on the top vents? I see that you have the H70 exhausting. It looks like the airflow would be pretty much balanced by your setup

Yes, I have the rear 140mm Yate Loon intaking from the rear. Then at top nearest mounts to the 5.25 drives I have a 120mm fan intaking. The middle I have left empty for now but you can actually feel air being forced out of it. Anyone know if the prolimatech paste is any good? Might just buy some mx-2/mx-3.
