PS: I seen a 120mm fan that can fit on the front as an intake (Takes up 2 x bays), are these any good?
I believe the 120's take up 3 bays. It's the 80's that take up two bays

Your quite right!

Seems like a good job. Dust filters are a bonus. 800rpm enough?

I also have the additional 120mm fan fitted to the additional fan bay below with the cover removed to give the lower 140mm a bit more air to pull in.

I wonder if I should replace the 140mm fans with the 120mm clusters? Combined with the H50 surley temps should drop?
what position is your HSF in? east/west? north south? I suggest north south config blowing into the top exhaust fans
post #334 of 8654
I had it in both east/west & north south (Changing the rear fan accordingly)

This is the cooler...

noctua nh-u12p

I just ordered the H50 (For a push / pull configuration) and 3 x Enermax 120mm fans to replace the Corsair fans. I hope this in conjunction with the 8 x fan controller things will get a lot cooler.

If not, then water will be my only option!

Valen you have got a pretty high oc for air, the high temps aren't really surprising me. The H50 should do well along with the other fans.

Whoever is trying to run Deltas off motherboard headers, i wouldn't advice it! They draw a large amount of current and even running one could end up damaging the motherboard. Two would almost definately do some damage.

Guess your right Oliver, the Coolermaster Stacker 832 I had before was pretty much a wind tunnel with perferated sides, so it's no suprise changing to the 800D yeilds much higher temps!

I am now toying with the idea of perferating my 800D window!

Anybody done simple mods on their case yet?

If you are going to mod the window, i would suggest, rather than drilling loads of little holes, getting a couple of dual rad grills and drill out large holes with a hole saw behind them. Would look much neater.

Thanks for the warning. I'll just run them off a fan controller.
Is there a recommended voltage a mb header can take or average rpm rate? thanks again.

It doesn't work like that, they supply a max of 12v, the fan won't try and draw more than that (they are designed for 12v) however they are designed for a certain amount of amps. Check your motherboard manual, it should say. If you draw too many you risk damaging the delicate tracks.

Thanks for the advice so far guys.

What's the story with the fan supplied with the H50? It's 1700 RPM right?

I want to replace them so I can use a push / pull system, will 1200 RPM do? Or should I go for 120mm Scythe Gentle Typhoon 1450 rpm??

I did plan to get the Enermax Cluster's as I have them all over my case already, but I don't want to hamper performance. (I rip a lot of BluRays and convert videos but can't due to blue screens with core temps @ 90+)

As always, your advice would be invaluable
