There are a lot of diff methods for applying tim, from what i have seen around here alot of people like the finger covered in cling film (seran wrap) and a gentle rubbed on layer of tim on the cpu. i use this method and then add a rice size little spot right in the middle of the cpu.

Hum, I like the idea of the of the disk staker container, what thickness did you make it, I know 40mm is about optimal for a shroud, anything over than you start loosing efficiency. Right now I could only make my own out of an old fan which is 25mm thick.

But many others do the fan controller because they don't have the option in their bios or they don't have enough fan headers on their boards. I happen to have 8 fan headers which is alot so in a sense my board is my fan controller.
Seems that I can't do it in my bios.. might need to get a fan controller.. but, I actually moved the R4 for Push.. my case got quieter for sure LOL. Seems that the R4 is pretty loud compared to the Corsair 120's.

Can you guys recommend me any 120mm quiet fans that is worth putting as push/pull for the H70?

Does anybody have any input into mounting an H50 P/P from the "ceiling" of my 690 II Advanced? I think it would be cool to have it there as exhaust blowing out the top but I don't want to damage anything.

The always popular high static pressure quiet running Gentle Typhoon ap-15 is the fan of choice for the H50/70 crowd with discerning taste about sound levels.

If you have the money to get it sure, but with a similar set-up on your H50, it will be hard to get a great improvement in temp, a little yes but not much. H70's rad is thicker and you get another fan but testing results shows that if you have the same setup with the H50, the improvements are not that great.

how about Noctua P12's? or Noctua NF-S12B ? I can't find the Gentle Typhoon in my local listings of computer stores.

this is a good guide to fan comparisons that i enjoyed.
http://www.madshrimps.be/?action=getarticle&articID=936

the noctuas are good fans from what i have heard, the P12 is supposed to be good pressure and low sound due to there 9 fin and trailing edge design. but i don't have any direct comparative info.

Get it and then do an H50 mod to cool your 470!

More seriously, I've heard mixed feelings about the H70 being all that much better than the H50.
