Well im using the Cooler Master R4 fans currently. I would think that if you had the same 133cfm push/pull fans that the hot air would be pulled off the rad faster, making it cooler.
I think when I get a new fan, ill put a shroud on it.
not so much back to work, cause im only 19.. but i am starting college again. XD its just taking the whole mobo out, and basically the h50 out to lap that. It was a pain to install. I made it much more difficult than it should have. lol

Yeah same, university here - exams in a week

You would definetely see an improvement from that fan, for sure. What I mean is that your CMR4 probably isnt restricting the airflow of the more powerful fan in your current setup.

It's hard to explain - if the air travelling from the more powerful fan is pushing the air at 2kmh, the 2nd fan will be receiving moving air and will only be able to push it slightly faster, like trying to pedal a bike downhill. If you increase the power of the 2nd fan, then it will still be receiving moving air but it will be able to accelerate it more, hence improving cooling (imagine you strapped an engine to that bike ). Thats a rubbish analogy but I hope it makes sense!

To start with, the H50's standard Rad should and im completely sure will be abit to dissipate the extra heat easily. Compared to the amount of heat a CPU puts out, a NB should be nothing compared.

Unless the NB block is really restrictive, which most arnt, the pump will have no problems.

I've looked at a picture of your Mobo and i cant see any problems.

If you do this mod, i would be very interested in how it goes.
Ok then, I will definitely post up my results/pics when I do it. If I run into any roadblocks I'll post up.

Keep up the good work everyone!

I just purchased some ultra kaze 3000. And man are they loud. They push alot of air but in my case they should close to 3-4 times louder than the original corsair fan the h50 comes with.

I haven't gotten around to test the temperature difference but at a rated 40% max voltage the fans can handle they still bother me to a point where i cant sleep with them on.

I just replaced the stock H50 fan with 2 fans I had that push noticeably more air but the silence is gone. It's a shame that my necessity for silence has been overcome by my thirst for better performance from the H50.

The whole reason I got it was because my last heatsink/fan combo was loud.

I just mounted the H50 on the ceiling of my HAF932 right infront of the 230mm fan, just behind the drive bays. The best part about it is the that the fan i'm using for the push air has red LEDs so it matches the 230mm fan in the front of the HAF

I finally got around to fixing my fans.

Before I was running:

shroud | rad | nf-p12-1300 as an exhaust

Now I'm running shroud | stock corsair fan | rad | nf-p12-1300 as intake,

and my temps dropped 8 degrees

When I tried for 4GHz with just the NF-P12 Tcase would end up around 72C, with the cores around 75-80C.

Now I'm getting 64C for Tcase and max 71C for the cores, and so far so good


Its not even any louder. I have my stock fan running at 50%, and the NF-P12 at 100% and its still nice and quiet.



@sintricate

When you're doing a push/pull config I found that its not the fact that you're using 2 fans that makes all the noise, its having the first fan sandwiched between the rear grill and the rad. Even my NF-P12, which is a pretty silent fan, gets obnoxiously loud.

That's why I stuck a shroud in there. Its not really doing anything airflow wise but it makes everything a lot quieter.

In my case it's the loud fan I'm using. I was hoping to take it out of my PC but on my quest for lower temps, it found it's way back into my machine
