[Official] Corsair Hydro Series Club - Page 1414

post #14131 of 28303
Off to another great start - seems the Cooler Master R4 (model reviewed on this site - that particular model - there are other R4's but they seem more geared to LED's rather than big air flow) are not available in the UK either. I think the cosmos is trying to point me to the Gentle Tornado !!.. will keep looking though.

Are Coolermaster R4's really that bad as for push/pull?
I thought the 3.05mm H20 static pressure would be sufficient enough.

I know it's not as important as load, but my idle temps avg. 4 degrees above ambient. (that's at stock clocks btw)

They are a little noisy at full spin.

If they are R4s (R4 blades and number of blades) and spin at 2000rpm they are all the same. The specs changed along with the part number because they were not meeting spec, so far as I can tell (Coolermaster was a little too optimistic with their specs).

Edit: I've seen them available with and without LEDs.

I only speak for myself I would never use a R4 for anything unless they where free. Have had many over the years and they either have defects right away that make them click or make weird noises, not work at all or they soon develop problems after not much use. Also, they WAY overstate their specifications and fudge some of them. They list something like 19db for their noise but, that is when they are at the lowest voltage to make them run. They list 88CFM when they don't come close to that even if you over-volt them.

They are decent fans if you can't find anything better but nothing I would stake the life of my CPU on.

If you don't want the fans to be loud and care about the noise then Scythe GentleTyphoon D1225C12B5AP-15 is the fans I would recommend they are 1850rpm and very quiet compare to any fan that puts out as much CFM/Static pressure as they do.
Would one Ultra Kaze be good enough in a push config with a shroud? I don't know if my case has enough room for it to be honest.

I'll take some pictures to show you what I mean.

should be.
I am using a silverstone in a push config with no shroud and get nice cooling.
BTW i have a SILVERSTONE FM122

I just looked up that case to see some pictures of what it looks like I would mount the H50 in the front of the case as intake in the 5 1/4 bays as long as you don't have them already filled that would allow you to have 2 fans and shrouds if you wanted.
