post #15121 of 28303
Ok - purchased my H70 second hand - it is going to be part of my wifes rig so I am fine tuning everything in it - I just noticed that apparently I can only set the fan speeds on the stock fans to either High or Low? High sounds like a friggin turbine... and Low is set by adding the extensions with resistors?

Is there any other way to set these to a lower but not dirt low setting? BIOS (and if so could you please provide info ) Not sure how to do these since I usually purchase fans at the speed I NEED them at and don't bother past that

I have no idea but you could always buy some grills for the fans to lower the sounds or sound dampening but as for making it lower, not sure. I'm hearing impaired so luckily me the airflow sound ain't important to me. But i do frequently check to make sure there are no loud noises cuz i wear my aid on my left ear an the tower is on my left side lol.

I just finished putting together my new Cooler Master HAF 922 with a H70 and this fan whine is going to drive me nuts.

I love how much cooler my CPU runs compared to the Antec Sonata and Hyper212+ build, but it's much louder than I had anticipated. I have 2 of the orange nexus fans sitting around now... does anyone know what kind of temperature increase (if any at all) I could expect if I went with them?

Here are the fans I'm referring to: http://www.endpcnoise.com/cgi-bin/e/std/sku=nexus120mm

Hey Jeramabih, what temps are you running, your CPU and board are the same as mine, but I seem to be having problems with high temps.

I just tried to take me CPU to 3.7, and running Prime I hit 91c with a H50 in push/pull.

Those only give ~36CFM I don't remember the exact specs of the H70 fans but I think even at the lowered speed of 1600rpm they are at 50CFM. So those Nexus fans would not even come close to the minimum speed/CFM/Static pressure of the stock corsair fans so I would expect a great temp increase if you went with them.

There is other ways like 3rd party fan controllers or undervolting but the easiest is hopefully done via bios or software that's compatible with your wife's mobo such as 'speedfan' or 'fanxpert'. It all depends on what hardware you're plugging them into....the only thing I can think of at the moment that is universal is the 3rd party fan controllers you can get from newegg, fry's, performancepc's, xoxide, frozencpu etc etc etc....

But as I said the easiest and most likely cheapest way is through your BIOS or mobo-compatible software you can get free trials of. More info on the hardware setup of your wife's PC is needed if you need more detailed instructions.

Hello and congratulations on first post/welcome to the club! Please post pics of your setup for our inspiration and enjoyment

---and system specs + temps at load/idle are always nice for other members with similar hardware to reference and gauge their setup and configurations!!

Yea, any help would be appreciated - my wife's rig is in my sig right now - had to steal the motherboard from my rig for it, so she got a free upgrade that will hopefully not burnout!

Man, I've completely had it with searching for the right fans to use in push/pull config for my h50.

Please help me out here! I am defenitely not going to buy Scythe GP's since they're not my taste

Please let me know what's a good alternative! I've been thinking about buying Scythe Kama flex or the Kama flow 2. They do better than the Yate Loons, make more noise than the GP's, but have highter CFM through a rad (mrmartin's thread)

+rep for good advices here
