pls let me know which place in HAF X is best to use for push/pull thx in advanced.
I put mine top-side since the rad was hitting the NB heatsink on my Classified (when I put it in the back). I'm sure you won't have the same problem since the NB heatsink on that LE isn't nearly as tall.

Good luck with your new build and that's a nice case, btw. Personally I prefer the 800D but to each his own.

Tiny Tom reviews A LOT of gear. He knows what he's talking about. But he's not as up on the Hydro Series as we are. I posted on his H70 review. I'm hoping that he hasn't shipped the H70 off yet so he can add a shroud at least and see if that made a difference.

We can't expect him to fine tune it though since the gear he reviews is on loan. He's the reason I got the CHIVFormula though. Cause he had to plead with Asus to do the review prior to launch. He was the only review out at the time. If he hadn't reviewed it I would probably have gone the M4A89GTD Pro series instead.

You should have seen the Asus 5970 LE GPUs' he reviewed. Hardshell cases that have RoG mouse badge and all the other goodies for over £1000

Anyway, he tested it as supplied. And he did say that he was encouraged by the 50mm thick Rad which alot of the Reviewers of the H50 had issues with.

Some people think that Corsair is missing the boat by not offering the H70 with a 240 Rad. I think that's not realistic for a bolt on water system. It would be self limiting to offer it as a 240 instead of 120, because not everyone has room or the grill space for a 240. Which would limit who could buy one. I think that Corsair is right on the money to double the Rad thickness, but it would hinder me if I wanted to mount it where I have my H50 Rad. Since that is over hafway into my 5.25 rack.

My setup would double in thickness and force me to mount my Opticals in the bottom two Bays. Considering my shroud and fan thickness is 52mm including the fan silencers I use for gaskets. My whole setup would be 128mm thick.

Anyway I passed on how my P/P is setup and asked him if he hasn't sent back the H70 to try it with a shroud and see what his temps are then.

He does run an OC test. No other reviewer I know of does this. I could be mistaken but I've never seen someone like 3DGamerman do this.

We need a case with proper airflow, testing it with some GTs or undervolted UK3Ks to see how this thing really goes!

H70 Update!

Sorry for being absent guys, i finally was able to get the whole system installed and running (literally just got done installing the drivers etc). Installing the h70 was pretty easy took about 15 minutes tops but figuring out where it would fit and how to set up the fans was time consuming.

I have yet to properly configure my bios (asus P6X58D-E) or my fan/pump settings but i am looking into that right now.

This is how i have my system currently set up.
Note i have never had a H50 or any water cooling so im still trying out different methods.
I am using the provided Corsair fans as an intake (push/pull) until my Gentle Typhoon AP15s arrive.

Due to the size of the rad i was unable to install it as a top exhaust in my CM690 II because it got in the way of the ram.

2x140 fans as top exhaust 2x120 as push pull for the rad, and 1x140mm front exhaust. I will be adding a front exhaust to the top CD drive bay as well if i chose to keep the back intake configuration.



Current tests after a quick 30 min stress test (note bios have not been modified at all its all stock)


I will report back once i get off of work tonight and i will have better figures one i have everything configured properly.
Any recommendations or suggestions for this setup?

@Enphenate

The front fan should be intake. Otherwise, looks good.

Since he is doing intake on the back of the case which is normally exhaust he did the right thing changing the front to exhaust.

It should be fine if he does intake on the front and side and exhaust out the front and top.

As long as your intaking more than exhausting then it's fine.

Switching the front fan to intake too would create a negative pressure case which is bad makes it so your case is sucking air in any crack or place that it can and dust/dirt with it.

Heat rises though, he isn't going to accomplish much by having the front as an exhaust. And you want to cool your HDD's.

What? That's not possible.
