C: Remove the front upper 230mm Exhaust and use the H70 as Push/Pull Intake
D: Remove the front upper 230mm Exhaust and use the H70 as Push/Pull Exhaust
E: Turn the front upper 230mm exhaust into intake and use the H70 as Push/Pull upper rear Exhaust.


I'm looking for what will generate the best health for my total system.

Intaking air from the rear sounds like a bad, bad idea, even in an ATCS 840.

I'm rather fond of idea E myself.

PS: I'm replacing stock fans with two Scythe Gentle Typhoons.
I have an ATCS 840 and an H50. I've installed mine as option D except I just have a single San Ace H101 as a push fan with a 38mm shroud.

I chose this because I intend to install an intake fan in the drive bays to deliver fresh air directly to the intake fan. I may add another H101 w/ shroud as a pull fan.

Great reply's guys.

See I told you it was complicated, I might kick start a talk on string theory next week. I know nothing about that either. lol

I've now settled my system with one fan pushing the air out of the case over the rad of the H50. and instead of the push pull I moved the other high speed fan to the front as a better intake. I have other case fans too.

For my system the push pull wasn't making any difference to my temps maybe a fluctuating half a degree. I get the same temp with one on full than i did with two.
The biggest temp drop was when i moved a fan inside the case to be pointing along the graphics card. This took down the temp of my cpu a good few degrees. This was only at idle too. I think at the moment I have it set at the best I am going to get it in my ambient room temp. I did use an ultra kraze but they are just too noisy way over the top really. especially when they are not either pushing against something like the rad. The pull fan seemed to be really not have any resistance at all. Also these on full makes no difference to say at 60 or 70% that is in my setup. I'm sure tweaking set up might make some little difference but i am happy now with what i think the best set up for me is. So i moved it to be another intake for my case which reduced the noise and increased airflow in the case. I have an idle ranging from 26 to 32 deg c at the moment depending on the temp in the room. I'm in the north of England too. It usually sits around 28 deg c, this is only in the bios at the moment.

I have the i7890x in my system which i will get around to having a go at a full water loop but at the minute i don't need one.

Just ordered my H70 from Newegg along with 2 Gentle Typhoon Ap-15s. Cant wait for them to get here and install them on my sig rig. After reading some posts in this thread, I have been considering the idea of using a shroud for the push fan. 1- Will it really make a substantial difference in temps or will it just be a 1 or maybe 2 degree difference? 2- If I were to use a shroud, what would be the best method of obtaining one? Should i really just use an old fan and remove the blades or are there places that I could purchase a shroud for a 120mm case fan? Thanks.

Hey Solaris, you should probably fill out your system specs in User CP that way when you say things like "I moved my other High Speed to the front of my Case..." we know right where that is or can look it up.

Welcome to the H50/H70 club and OCN.

I am here! I have gone with a modified and lapped H50. I moved the radiator outside with a watersink to hold more water. .....and I only ruined one vid card MSI 5770 Hawk. (I was learning with this OK?)

This may be a dumb question, but if noise is of no concern, do higher CFM fans with an H50 or H70 always equate to better cooling?

I would assume there is a tolerance where the performance tops out with a certain rated CFM.

No higher CFM will not always result in better cooling. Why? because there needs to be a certain amount of air that gets pushed through the rad at one time, if there is too much it just wont have much more of an effect. Go with some fans that have high static pressure.

Ooooooo I wonder what that could be?




I am trying to plan out how I want to mount this new toy in my A1200, hop on over to my build log and help me brainstorm a bit if you guys feel up to it. I am looking forward to trying to do some OCing on this thing. I also have two GT AP-15's and 1g of Shin Etsu x23 on the way which should be showing up tomorrow. Im really looking forward to putting this together it seems like an awesome cooler.

At what point does too much static pressure become useless? Or is that impossible? I was thinking 2 Delta AFB1212GHE fans rated at 27.48mmH2O each.

Also, should the total exhaust static pressure equal the total input static pressure? Or should it be more? Or less?

Don't get deltas... get some 1850rpm Gentle typhoons.
