What? That's not possible.
Wrong about it being impossible if you had more than one fan in the front but your right messed the one line up. Intake in the back and side, exhaust out the front and top. The HDD's are still getting air passed over them just not as cool as intake would give, keeping the CPU cooler should be priority.

If he is going to keep the setup the way it is now with the H50 as intake in the back it is better to have the front fan exhaust.

I would suggest to try a couple of different setup's. Try like you have it/where going to set it up originally(H50 intake, side intake, front and top exhaust)and see the temps of everything in your case your GPU's and HDD's and of course CPU too. Then try to exhaust the H50 change the front fan to intake and see your temps for that setup. If there is only a few C difference in the CPU temps you might stick with the latter setup cause it should give you lower temps for everything else.

I don't think positive negative air pressure matters. One hasn't been proven to have better cooling than the other, correct me if I'm wrong. Negative will result in more dust but IMO it does a better job. I basically use the concept of heat rises. On my HAF X, all the fans are intake except for the top two fans. That creates an air current where all of the heat is streamed to the top, where it gets exhausted by two 200mm fans.

I believe his setup should be the same. There is no point in exhausting air out the bottom front. That where all the cool air is, you want that cool air to enter the case and flow upwards cooling the components and then when it gets warm, its exhausted out the top. You don't want the cool air thats on the bottom of the case to be exhausted out of the case. That doesn't make any sense. Who ever heard of exhausting cool air?

You case has a place for a 140mm fan on the bottom, next to the PSU. You should get a fan down there to pull in cold air and feed it to your GPU. You could also put another 140mm up top to help create that air current I was talking about.

You basically have all your fans as intake so that's a positive pressure case. Agree that neither positive or negative pressure is technically better just in the long run positive is better because it keeps dust/dirt out of your case and will keep everything cooler. If the dust and dirt cake up on all of your components and your fans then it can't be cooled as well. You can clean it all you want it's still going to have a layer of dust over it soon as you start it back up and let it run for a few hours insulating everything so it holds in more heat.

I filter every intake on my case and the top of my case and still get some dust in my case even though I have a positive pressure setup. I can't imagine how much dust and crap I would have in my case if it was negative pressure.

It took me a while to figure out the best setup for my H50/case.(H50 front intake+another front fan intake, side intake, back and top exhaust).

HI everybody!

I've been reading A LOT in this thread, not the 1253 pages though!
I just assembled my rig yesterday, I'm testing the temps on my I7 at 1.32v and 4Gh, but I think I have some problems with my H50:

1.- the pump it's quite loud, and more than a buzzing or humming noise is like a clicking noise, like when you touch the blades of a fan with a piece of paper.
2.- My temps are terrible, reaching 90 degrees full load with Prime95, and OCCT just last 3m or so and reach 80 degrees (I'm attaching a picture of it), with the case open and with an ambient temperature of 22 degrees, the pump shows 1360RPM which should be correct, on other hand I think the heat transfer between the block and the radiator it's ok, because the radiator gets quite hot too, that's why I think the pump must be working fine apart of how loud it is.

I know that using a pull/push configuration my temps are going to improve, but I think even with the stock fan they should be much better than this right?

on other hand just for testing I installed a TT ISGC-300 and the temps were like 4 degrees higher only.

here are the specs and a pictures

I7 930
ASUS X58D-E
ASUS 5870
3X2G hyper-X 1600
Corsair H50
Cooler Master 960 II advance

BTW in the next picture the idle temp is quite high but is with the fan at minimum, 530RPM





I hope some one can help me with this problems

cheers!!!

Are you running the H50 as intake or exhaust? For any new setup specially while doing an OC you should always run it at 100%. Make sure in the motherboard bios you have the fan and pump set to 100% and any setting that might throttle the speed of the fans/pump turned off.

HI

thanks for the advice!, I did check and the pump is at 100% always and the fan is running as intake
post #12528 of 28306
Just intake from the front and exhaust out the top regardless of the setup in the back.

The increased flow should help keep the other components cool as well.

As has been pointed out, heat does not sink, it rises. So I would look for a better fan to use for exhaust and that should cover any issues that could possibly arise.

Take my system for example. I had pretty much decided that I was going to add another fan to the bottom of my system and was going to exhaust out the top. The increased exhaust out the top doesn't offset the increased flow from the bottom + side + front. So I also replaced the stock Exhaust fan with a better performing Yate Loon LED fan. RPM is over 2k. I left the stock 200/230mm fans pointed in their stock direction.

Is berry nice for temps.

Corsair H70 Progress

I finally got off work and was able to update the bios and properly configure them.
Im running at 3.6ghz right now 1.21 vcore on my I7 930.

I set the CPU fan to 100% min & 100% Max with rpm on ignore.
The Fans that are on the H70 are running at around 1300rpm (what my mobo was reporting) do i need to tweak these?

I am still running the fan configuration as specified below, but i will switch the front fan from exhaust back to intakee tomorrow morning. I am also adding a 120MM intake fan to the bottom (next to PSU so it blows air towards the top 2x140mm exhaust fans)


The ambient temp in my room is a little cooler right now (night time) but here are some results after a 30min blend test + small FFT test (20 mins).



Idle temps

Core 0: 37C
Core 1: 34C
Core 2: 39C
Core 3: 32C

Its a little late, ill get back on tomorrow morning to fine tune everything and post more temps etc!

Hi guys, im a little worried about my temps, the air temp in my case is around 29c, and my i7 920 C0 @ 4ghz is idling around 50c, prime95 after about 30 minutes puts my 920 to around 87c. Things I have done to try and reduce temps are -
- Re-apply thermal paste and check the seating of the waterblock.
- On the h50 radiateur I now have an extra fan pulling as well as the fan that is pushing the air from outside the case into the radiateur.
- Took out my 9800gt that I was using as a dedicated physx card.
- Took another fan and directed some air onto the heat pipes of the gtx480 to try and cool them down.

Could this be a problem with my h50 cooler or am just crazy for sticking all this in such a small case ? Here are some piccies.
