Hey thanks man! I know I was whoring this thread with my noob questions but thanks for being patient and helping me out. You're a real cool guy and have been extremely helpful along with everyone else at the OCN community.
Gottta give you a +1 rep bro.

And that's great to hear! I was read that you should also tighten up the brackets on the H70 a bit... That should help spread out the tim more and improve temps.

After a week give the screws a slight turn then you should be all set.

Hi Guys,

Here's my current setup.



I have recently bought 2 x Scythe S-FLEX 1600RPM Ultra Quiet 120mm Fan - 3/4 Pin
fans to setup as a push/pull.

Whats the deal with connecting these up to the M/B? I have not got the fans as yet. Expecting them in the next couple of hours. But I would think they come with PWM 3 pins? Not sure what kind of 4 pin converter they come with, so unsure if I can use it.

Would I be able to connect a 3 pin splitter on the 4pin Header? Or should I ignore that header and connect them up to a fan controller.

Would be greatful for any assistance you guys can pass along. Sorry if its a noob question.

Strongy,

I would connect them to your Scythe fan controller.
They are not PWM so wont work with the BIOS and MOBO.

I have mine connect to he MOBO but you need to trun off the fan contol in the BIOS.
They will run at 100% when connected via a molex and direct to the PSU. They dont run 100% when connect to the MOBO.

That's a really big case.

Thanks for the advice Mark.

Do you think I can use a splitter on the fan controller for the push/pull fans, as I plan to add other fans to the controller and need to ports.

And yes, its a big case Room for a kitchen sink in there if need be The case is a Corsair Obsidian 800D

Oops... I gave them more than just a slight turn and did not wait a week... The screws were not screwed in that tight to begin with. So I just tightened them(not too tight) until they barely started showing resistance. Ah well, I plan on reapplying different tim anyway.

No worries. I tightened mine with a screwdriver until they won't turn anymore at all unless I were to really really force them some more. Temps are fine and I'm sure the TIM was spread very nicely.........plus this is also after I lapped the CPU and H50.

Dont worry about it.
You are over teching it.
just tighten them again in a few weeks and you will be good.

No need to change TIM.

I mounted the rad in the top of my 800D as an intake with a push/pull configuration and I am getting great temps..about 33c at idle and 57-59c max temps under load. I want to change the fans to help reduce the noise. It isn't really loud but I would prefer it quieter but I don't want to sacrifice a little noise for higher temps. Any suggestions on fans that might run a little quieter in a push/pull configuration to make it less noisy without sacrificing an increase in temps? I am currently using cooler master 120mm with max 1600 rpms.
