Is there any possibility to mounting the H70 on the front 5.25 area... using zipties to hold it there?
I'll try getting some pics of it today. And I don't think you'll be able to mount the H70 in the front area... the tubes are pretty short.

if i were you... i would cut the back of your case ( the grid between your fans )

also .. if you have spare fans at home ( broken possibly ) break them to keep the outer plastic piece and glue it yo your fan like this. it adds a little extra pull/push effect ( i tapped mine with electric tape ...works wonder )

fan <--- windtunnel <--- radiator <--- windtunnel <---- fan
or
fan <--- windtunnel <--- radiator ---> windtunnel ----> fan


(<--) air current = push/pull configuration

according to certain "tests" push/pull is better ... my personal experience says it depends on the case air flow best configuration ( my moded nine hundred has 1 output of air ( the top huge fan ))

I was wondering if that would make much of a difference. I almost did it before I installed it. I guess I'll cut it out, can't hurt.

The second one is very wrong you have the fans blowing opposite directions/working against each other.

You want your fans blowing in the same directions. Fixed below:

fan---> shroud ---> radiator ---> shroud ----> fan

I've had this system running for about 3 weeks now.



If I had the 2 fans inside the case, the 230mm side panel fan I installed would hit the push fan. So I opted to bring out the pull fan.



Issues of relevance to this particular case (Thermaltake Element T):
Mounting the pull fan externally brought the fan edge near the side panel upper screw hole, resulting in inability to close the side panel properly


So I had to Dremel off part of the side panel like so


Another issue with this case: I discovered (after I had mounted the motherboard and everything else except for the radiator) that part of the case support bracket at the upper portion was coming in contact with the upper part of the radiator, preventing proper attachment. Since I didn't want to disassemble everything so that I could Dremel off the offending portion, I just used my aviation tin snips to trim it off. The angle of cutting was awkward and space was limited, so the result is quite ugly. But at least now I could fit the radiator to the back of the case.


Temps: Idle=34-36C
Load(LinX)=46-48C
Ambient=31-32C

Cool photos.

Which steel cutting dremel attachment do you use? I'm thinking about buying a dremel just to cut a hole in my CM690 (SECC material) case

Sorry for annoying questions but do you guys recommend applying the TIM on the h70 heatsink first or the CPUs?

Slimbrady, here are the pics showing what I'm talking about.



Don't know if you can see it, but it's that tiny little metal tab above the expansion slot. I'm not sure exactly what thing is there for but it was easy getting it down.

And is it normal for the back i/o plate to convex like this? Not a big issue but a bit annoying.

The first example IS push/pull as the term is referring to the air being pushed by
1st fan --> rad --> 2nd fan(this fan is pulling the air being pushed by the 1st).

You can do push/pull in either direction just don't mix them up like the second example where you would basically be blowing all air(cool or warm) away from your radiator while the 2 fans fight for what little air could be sucked in from cracks and crevices where they meet the radiator. Not going to be very impressed by that I'm sure. Similar scenario if they were both blowing inwards -> r <- as your heat dissipation would be limited to how much of the turbulent air pocket you'd be creating could escape out of the same cracks and crevices.....and that's all if you at least had matching fans...might get away with not frying your cpu if one fan was stronger but you'd beat the hell out of the weaker fan.

The shrouds(wind tunnels) are definitely a good idea though.

Hey if I can reach in the HAF 932 well enough to be staring at 28c at 4.374 mhz while I'm writing this I can't imagine it'd be impossible. =)
If you're sticking on some quality fans in push pull they're going to be creating a pretty strong current to where you might not actually have to "reach" the front to still get air from it. Having a shroud or two can make the reach a little longer, heh. My H70 rad is maybe only an inch or so in from the edge of the 5.25" bay but it's pretty heavy(especially with 38mm 3k Ultra Kaze's on either end and shrouds.

I haven't really figured a proper way to mount it other than catching one of the screws around a zip tie and securing it to the side. That's how I had it for a while but really it's not even needed if the base is oriented to allow the rad to "sit" on the bottom of the 5.25" bays...I think everybody has a nice solid piece there.

Might not work if you have giant ram heatsinks with fans on top of them but i can still fit a ram cooler on my ram and have enough tubing to go around it and still reach the bay.

I just buy reinforced disks...don't bother with diamond...expensive and goes fast...I wouldn't use weak ones either though make sure they're reinforced metal...don't want little pieces of metal traveling your way at 35k rpm lol.

I just built my computer and installed the H70. So far I like it alot. The fans are awesome, and keep the radiator nice and cool. On high load or whenever I set them up, they run up to 2138 RPMs they can get pretty loud, but it's not too bad. on normal they run pretty quietly.
I set the intake fan on the outside of the case, I'm sure it would have fit perfectly fine if I set it up on the inside, but I just wanted to make sure you could see the Corsair logo on the pump. I am Vain!





I really like this cooler.
