post #12931 of 28253
I love my Yates. Dollar for dollar they're the best performing fan imho.

I don't have to spend extra money on CCs' to light up my otherwise dim Cabinet(Red version) because they are LED style. But not so bright I that I have to wear welding goggles in a darkened room. My monitor blinds me sometimes if it's too bright.

They are easily voltage adjusted, so if you want to use a fan controller you can dial them down to a reasonable dB level w/o issue. Mine are controlled by the MoBo and I run two of them chained off my PWR header and still can dial them down to a reasonable dB level.

And with zero sleeving option I get them at $4 each before shipping so I can get at the minimum 3 of them to every 1 fan of the higher grade offerings such as UKs', GTs' and Slipstreams etc. Shipping only increase the cost a little but dollar for dollar YLs' are the best.

Now if you are not on a budget, R4s' are rated 2 CFM higher. But limited in glow. Being a more subdued option. Or if you are close to a Cafe store you can probably find something reasonable that do out perform YLs'. Even still there are other variables that come into play there.

If noise is an issue I suggest Mediums and Lows which have reasonable CFM:dB levels.

I get my YLs' at Performance-PCs.com and they list the ratings on all of their fans as far as I am aware so even if you're too far away to buy from them I would at least check the ratings and then google the units (regardless of manufacturer) to see if you can get them.

I hope this helps.

I still have not enough evidence to choose either the H50 or H70 and am still piecing together a plan for which fans to use and where to put them.

With the new fans:

Core 1: 58
Core 2: 53
Core 3: 52
Core 4: 52

The setup is as follows. <--Fan--Radiator--<--Fan
The only thing in the front is the drive bays which are perforated. Couldn't think of a better word but plastic with holes. Other than that the cable management is good I think. I will try to get a picture in ASAP.
Got the stock fan exhausting with the top. The 230mm intake in the front, 140mm in the back, two gpu's and a spot cooler aimed at my MCP. Also the side stock fan as intake.

Let me know what else I can answer for you. I am just surprised that the cooling difference is minimal at best.
You have it in the front or back of your case and without a point of reference your diagram of your setup doesn't tell us if it is exhaust or intake.

The best placement would be to put it in the front drive bays as intake, leave any other front fans as intake and side as intake and then back and top as exhaust.

Carfanatic: if I put a fan bay from Lian Li in my 700D that would occupy 3 of 5 5.25" slots in the case and had the two fans on the cooler pulling air in, would that be ideal for the cooler and the case? That would pretty much mean I'd NEED the H70 because I don't know if the tubes on the H50 are long enough.

The H50 has longer tubes than the H70 so think you got that backwards. It all depends where your CPU sits compared to the front of the case. By the looks of your case you have posted it has a stock place right in front for a 120mm to go so no need to buy anything else it would be perfect to put the H50 or H70 right there.

Edit: see you said you where using a 700D you could either use the adapter like you said or you could use other ghetto mods like zip ties or something a little more stable like mine if you look at my pictures below.

It is set up exactly as you said. It is in the front drive bays as intake, the side and the front are intake, the back and top is exhaust.

Yup, I got it backwards. One of the tricky parts for my decision is that with the FT02 I can just use the 120mm duct immediately over the CPU location and short tubes will be fine. However, for the 700D I will probably need the longer tubes. I have a feeling I am going to have to either stop using the FT02 and put up with possibly higher air temps with the 700D, or else re-sell the 700D and keep using a case that is a great air cooler but has several features that bug me.

EDIT: Forgot to mention, the only way I'd have trouble with using a 700D with the H50 is if I absolutely needed to use the front 5.25" bays to have intake. Is it absolutely proven that this is the best way to use the corsair H coolers or can I fasten the radiator and fans to one of the top 120mm ducts and achieve the same results? I would imagine that intake would be better but it would blow toward the bottom of the case where hot air is likely coming from.

The 700D is smaller than my case and I have mine mounted in my front/drive bays. Shouldn't have too much trouble with the 700D making it fit.

I know everyone keeps recommending the Gentle Typhoone fans, but I was curious if anyone knows of a fan that has over 10mmH2O or .39inH2O and that is at or below 45dB noise level?

I dunno if there is even a definitive review with this information. It may be a case of trial and error testing on your part.

If it is I suggest starting low in the price spectrum and figuring out what works best for you. I know Typhoons are a favorite though.
