post #10701 of 28354
hey guys i have a(nother) question about the fan placement. corsair recommends a fan blowing the outside air into the radiator (i shouldn't have trouble flipping one of my antec 1200 exhaust fans to do that). so my question is, what direction should i put the other fan in? should i have it blowing air in the same direction as the intake, or should i have it blowing air into the radiator from my case. so in other words, do i do (outside)-->/-->(inside) or (outside)-->/<--(inside)? or should i just save me the trouble and do (outside)<--/<--(inside) by not changing the direction of my exhaust fan? thanks.

Here's a teaser pic for my ITX rig. Will post completed pics once the ST45SF PSU is released and I get everything finalized.

Guys, which mode do I set my fan to?

The fan is the one that came with my H50.

It is a rear case 120mm case fan mounted on the radiator as an exhaust, but it's plugged into the CPU header on the mobo. I have 4 options: CPU Q-Fan Enabled (Silent, Optimal, Performance) or Disabled.

With it set to silent, the fan idles at ~700RPM, Optimal idles at ~900RPM, and Performance at ~1200RPM. During Intel Burn Test, I never see the fan go pass 1400RPM when I have Q-Fan enabled.

With it disabled, it's a constant 1700RPM.

Normally, I have my case fan running at max and the CPU fan, I let Q-Fan decide the RPM.

But in this case, the fan is a rear exhaust, but it's also mounted on the radiator cooling the CPU, so I'm a bit confused on how I should set the speed.

What do you guys think, Q-Fan Peformance or Q-Fan disabled in my case?

@Average...

You should probably pick a level and stick with it and check your temps as you go. If you're above 43c @ idle then 1700 may be the way to go. This also depends on how much racket you're willing to put up with. So if nothing else run it @ 1700 for a bit and see if it's too loud for you to live with. If so adjust accordingly.


@Method...

Honestly you should try a few different ways to see what works the Antec 1200. I've never owned that Case so I can't say whether Intake or Exhaust. I run exhaust cause I have a high enough Airflow in my case.

Yours probably does too, but I can't speak to that.

Now if you're running 1 fan in either configuration the best bet more likely is Case/fan/Rad Some people mount their Rad first but then you need short enough 6-32 toggle bolts to bolt the Rad into place and then you can use the supplied bolts to mount the fan. Remember, whichever way you go to be careful cause you could bugger the fins on the Rad if you overthread the bolts. Possibly even penetrate the core.

Hope I was helpful to you.

I noticed in Silent or Optimal mode, my CPU idles at around 33-34C, but with Performance or with Q-Fan off, it idles at 30-31C depending on the room temperature.

For some reason it seems like Performance and max RPM seems to perform roughly the same after 20 runs of Intel Burn Test. They both reach a max of 53-54C. The only thing different is that with Performance, the fan maxes at 1400RPM rather than 1700RPM.

The only thing I'm worried about right now are the temperatures for the other parts in my computer since slower RPM seems to move less hot air out of the case.

Ok, am push pull, exhaust, back of my 922. Side panel fan is intake, front is intake, top is exhaust, have a 120 on the bottom slot set as intake as well. Equipment listed in sig rig. HT is on for my i7. It hits 80c in about 5 minutes on Prime max heat, stays nice and cool in everything else. My AS5 still has about 4-5 days left to cure right. These temps normal, and is HT worth keeping on?

Those seem normal to me based on what others have posted for Intel chips the I7s really run hot. AMD is always cooler so can't say for certain about your exact cpu. After my AS5 was finally done curing I noticed a big difference in my temps.

AS5's cure time is it calander hours or operational hours?

operational... it used the heat from the processor to cure...
AS5 is outdated though and there are better alternatives for the price

True normally, but I get it for 4 bucks here and it's the ONLY TIM available locally except for the store brand we carry at work that bites ass.
