Depends what your ambient temperature is, in other words idle is near useless.

The overall winner, as far as I can tell after having read each of the 1300+ pages in this thread, is Gentle Typhoon AP15's in terms of db vs cfm/static pressure(Yate Loons HS probably 2nd but have a big lead in pricing). If you want to do some independent research, those are the three things to check for.

db = decibels
cfm = cubic feet per min
static pressure = rating for fan's ability to move air through objects(i.e. radiator)

i know you knew all that just making sure =)

hi all
i have the h50 now for a couple of weeks and the temps are very good.
i followed the video instructions of corsair - hosels down, the rad fan blowing cold air in, front fan out for max performance.
i looked in the net abot the best performance setup and many said to make it push-pull.
can someone post a screen of this? i don't know how to make this setup


best regards

Look at corsair site (link below), gives you some good info. You will also need some 6-32 x 1 1/4 inch screws ( or zip ties) to add the second fan.

Push pull will work better. Also some fans with higher static pressure help, like the Scythe Gentle Typhoon AP-15's.
Personally I would mount it as exhaust on the back. I tried intake with this H70 first but the temps inside the case went up like mad. Now as exhaust I saw almost no temp difference on the CPU, but my inside case temps are way way better. It also helps with cooling the graphic card.

For anyone who has either an H50 or H70 set up in a Silverstone FT02, where are you putting the fans and radiator, and is it exhaust or intake?

Thanks for this. I started reading through pages, but found myself getting tired very quickly. Going to read up about these fans and compare them to the stock H50 one right now, and possibly order soon after.

Don't really think Yates Loom are even close to second just cheap. These are very good also.http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...3df54ab44f11a5
