[Official] Corsair Hydro Series Club - Page 1322

post #13211 of 28303
Here's a couple shots of my build/mod. I modded my Antec 300 case so I could mount my H70 as an exhaust, with the radiator and the pull fan outside of the case. I didn't install it the default way, so I can't really compare temps. There's not much slack left in the tubing, so I would venture to say that not every case/mobo combination can support this with the H70. It may be possible with the H50 however, I'm told it has longer tubing.

Sorry for the crappy picture quality, all I had handy was my cell phone.

Looks pretty good, couple of suggestions, you could try and seat the pump in a different alignment to lessen the stress on the hose or flip the rad 90 degrees so the line are on the side and not the bottom.

What about testing? Have you got any temps?

I thought about turning the block just as I was posting those pictures, but I don't want to have to reapply the thermal paste.

I was running my i7 940 OC'd to 3.8GHz around 69C at full load, I'm still tweaking my OC.

I also have some complementary SilenX IXP-76-18 and IXP-74-14 fans that I will be reviewing for SilenX with the H70. I'm excited to see how that goes, they are some of the absolute quietest fans out there right now. I really want to see how their 120x38mm fans perform.

Looks good, i may do this to my case at some point to get the exhaust mount i want.

Hmmmm , looks pretty good. Couldn't tell if you had any kinks in your hoses the way you have it set up. Doesn't look like there is anything wrong with it though. If there isn't too much pull on the hoses mounted in that way I wouldn't sweat the small stuff.

Hmm those fans have a really wide spread, they may move air but i'm betting they are not high static pressure.

Just like Zavia says, those fans are more for cfm and being silent, you should however still have a nice static pressure. You never know, you might be pleasantly suprised.

It's not costing me anything, so I'm testing it just to see how it goes! Since they have such a wide spread, maybe I'll disassemble an old 120mm fan I have and test them with and without a shroud.

Nah, no kinks. I wanted to mount it as exhaust, and I didn't want that big radiator and 2 fans inside my case. Plus it's fun to get out the saw every once and a while

Hey guys so fan wise.. how about the Zalman ZM-F3 for the rad? I've heard really good things about it.. I'm not sure about the Static Pressure though.
