post #11481 of 28249
To be honest, im super new to all this and ive done some research as you can tell, but i have no idea what a shroud is or where to buy one. Newegg didnt give me any search results for one.

Also, any opinions on the pull fan being on the outside of the case? Maybe someone said something about it, but i might have missed it.

Is this MX-2/MX-3 thermal compound the stuff to have now? I was under the impression that AS5 was still the thermal compound to have...

I do have 3 exhaust fans at the top of my case, but the 800D is designed to take air in from the bottom and exhaust it thru the back/top so im still kinda torn on intake/exhaust for my H50. I guess what ill do is test it when i get it with both configs, and post the results for you guys. Only time can tell now...

EDIT: For shrouds, found Pings guide on the first page. doh

Okay a shroud is a box that lifts the fan away from the Radiator. This allows the fan to put more airflow on the Rad, lessens the dB level reverberating off the Rad and improves temps as a result. Depending on the length of the shroud you can all but remove the dead spot that is directly behind the hub of the fan as well.

I had already purchased 2 Yate Loon 120mm fans so when I got my H50 I gut the mechanicals out of the supplied fan and used that as my shroud. I removed the mounting bars as close to the interior edge as I could to lessen any obstruction they could possibly have caused.

I highly recommend this if you have an old 120mm fan laying around.

But wont that still just blow hot air all over your parts? It would also still mess up the thermal dynamics as you are now putting hot air into the case, which acts differently to cooler air.

Front air is cooler than rear air Muntey.

Yes, the air being taken in to the system will be slightly colder than if it were at the back but, this air is being heated up by the rad, making it hotter than air just sucked in normally.

Yes of course it does put hotter air in but at least with mine I have it at the top of my setup so it basically goes directly out the back and top without getting to the rest of the components. I have two fans lower than the H50 one on the HDD cage and one where there are no other devices that supply cool air to the video cards and most of the MB. Not to mention the 220mm side fan blows cool air in and hits all of the mb and video cards.

I have tested intake and exhaust at the back of my case, on the side of my case(replacing the 220mm fan and adding another 120mm above the H50), at the top of my case and where it rests now at the front of my case.

The current setup in front as intake is the coolest both for CPU and for all of the other components in my case as well.

I really suggest to try both ways, intake and then exhaust and keep it however you have a better temperature balance. For me it worked a lot better as exhaust in my case.
