Yessir.


The airflow could also be reversed so long as both fans are always going in the same direction. Pretty much the only other thing people are doing(incl me) is adding shrouds like so

->[{}]-> [ = first shroud ] = second

But if you're not doing a huge overclock you can probably get by without shrouds. The 2nd fan should give you more noticeable results but you would probably see at least a 1-3c from shrouding them

I'm not using shrouds and my PC gets to 62C full load and I'm using really cheap fans.

How much does the Corsair fans move air wise?

I put two of THESE on it, and I have them on high.

Would the Corsair fans be better, the fans I linked to arent that loud either, and I dont care how load they are because my GTX 470 is much louder anyway.

I really dont want to get 38mm fans because that would cover my CPU and I would like the waterblock/pump visible.

if you don't care how loud they are you should just choose to use the stock corsair fans with the h70

from hardware heaven:


Two fans are supplied with the H70 and are 120x120x25mm models. These fans are rated for 1600-2000RPM operation and this can be selected by the user through installation of the two step down adapters which are bundled with the unit. Corsair rates the fans at 50.35-61.2 CFM, 1.8-2.3mm H20 static pressure (each) and 26-31.5dBA of noise per fan.

the static pressure is probably superior to those ones you linked though the cfm is pretty close. H70 is a pretty damn thick rad so it might make it worth it to either use the stock ones or find equal or greater ones you like the look of....not going to be 5$ though, heh

they are powerful and able to push some nice amount of air, if you dont like the black you can make it green by painting it

They are inexpensive ($10.00), put out much better static pressure than you will ever get from a 25 mm fan (yes even the GTs) and are fairly quiet (you don't even need a fan controller), I hear a low pitched background sound but its certainly not loud or annoying (don't get the 3,000 rpm Ultra Kaze though because that IS loud and annoying). For $10.00 do yourselves a favor and try it out. You won't be going back to any 25 mm fan...oh and the performance increase for my H50 has been about 3-5 degrees.
Thanks for the heads up on another possibility!
I will definately consider this advice as well.
I'm looking at these air penetrators because of the directional flow being potentially solid in heatsink and radiator applications.
I'm suspecting that the results will be very similar to the stock fans just exceptionally quieter.

Also I'm willing to gamble because of several potential homes for these fans around the house.
If they don't fit the bill I'll use one to replace a louder fan on the intake and put the other to vent my HTPC.
