Most here do exhaust even though you may get a few degrees cooler doing intake it isn't worth heating every other component in your case getting those few degrees for your CPU.

The H50 TIM is one of the best if not thee best TIM but, it has one downfall they put way too much on it. My suggestion has always been to put a rubber glove on and take it all off split it in half then reapply that should give you about the right amount.

Good luck with your install
Exhaust it is. Is the stock tim like a putty. Do you try to smear and cover entire pump or just but a ball in the middle. I do have some SHIN-ETSU X23-7783D. Rep for the help.

Haha, my temps dropped by 2-3c after the cleaning Looks like it paid out well! Also, would it be any better to put my other fan outside the case inside of inside?

You are looking for 6/32 bolts you will need to test the length there.

When I bought my shroud it came with the right size bolts.

That's how I did it.
Where did you buy your shroud?

Count me in! Had my H70 for 2 Days now and have been reading through this forum for a good amount of the time its been running Prime95 or Folding.

I've got it fitted in my Antec 902 right now and trust me, its a tight fit! The corner of the push fan (Push/Pull Exhaust) is resting against the frame of my North bridge fan and the frame that holds the side fan in place is against the corner of the radiator. I'm starting to thing maybe i should have gotten the H50 instead as i wouldn't have to mod anything. (But wheres the fun in that?)

However, i have just ordered 2 Scythe 120mmx12mm fans to use as a ghetto shroud. Due to space constraints (the Fan controller bit at the top and the PCI slot brackets) i cant fit the radiator flush against the pack of the case and simply have the pull fan on the outside. Instead i plan to have the 2 12mm shrouds either side of the case for the effect of a 25mm shroud, with half being either side of the back of the case.

With this, i aim to regain use of my side fan, and to stop the noise from my R4 in pull (High pitched kind of noise, as described earlier in the thread)

Ill post back with results and more pics but for now, here's my current setup

I forget the exact Shin-Etsu that the H50 uses but know that is is one of the number one rated and a "zero" cure time TIM. It is kind of a putty type TIM the way it is on there when you get it is spread over the whole block/pump I would try to do the same when re-applying it try to spread it evenly over the block/pump surface. I really have not dealt with that thick of TIM before the H50. I ended up replacing my stock H50 TIM with AS5 because of not knowing what was on it to begin with and after the cure time I am very happy with my temps.

Really as long as you don't get air bubbles between the CPU and the block surface and your level then you shouldn't notice a difference of more than a very few degrees between any high quality TIM.

You could mount the pull fan outside the case like I did. I had a similar problem with my Thermaltake Element T side panel 200mm fan making contact with the lower corner of my push fan, preventing closure. I also cut out the case fan grill to remove any acoustic effects it could have.

That's the eventual plan but the radiator wont fit directly against the back of the case and needs about 10-12mm clearance. If i try to mount it with the pull fan on the outside now, The bottom of the radiator either hits the top expansion slot or the top hits the fan controller at the back. I can take the fan controller out, but then the radiator sits a fraction too high and the holes won't line up.

I plan to eventually have it as:
Pull << 12mm Shroud << Case << 12mm Shroud << Rad << Push

I considered mounting it in my front drive bays as an intake, and i have all the equipment to do so (without resorting to zip ties), but i am planning to eventually put a 240mm rad there for my graphics card.

Also, does anyone think the mesh/grill on the back of the case would impede airflow too much? It is made of hexagonal mesh with a solid portion in the centre to block off the fan logo when it is mounted there. I could cut it out, but i don't want to mess my case up too much if its going to have minimal effect anyway

Having a shroud on the pull side really doesn't improve the temps much if at all it will make the biggest difference on the push side. Though I see with your setup you might not have a choice to make it fit. Cutting out the grate on the back of your case can have another few degrees difference. There was one poster a few pages back that had a fan guard just for looks on one of his fans on the inside of his case and I advised him to remove it that it may drop his temps; he actually dropped 3C by removing it. You could drop the same temps possibly from a grate on the back of the case.

So um surprised no one has answered my questions on fans and if my power supply is enough power for me to run the H50 that I put in my last post on page 1400. Anyone have the answers I was looking for?

I'm not really looking to improve temps as much as i'm looking to reduce noise. The R4 as a pull fan has a tendency to make a high pitched noise, which is more annoying than all my other fans combined. Other users have reported that this is fixed by adding a shroud. I would also like to be able to use my side fan again, since it blows directly on my 470 (plus the blue LED's and clear frame add to the looks of the case)

As far as temps go, I'm currently getting a max of 65 on all cores running Prime95 Small FFTs for about 2 hours, which i'm happy with. Ill look at cutting the back grill out too, up to 3c is a lot for a free mod, and it can't exactly hurt temperatures
