post #15341 of 28303
Alrighty so I put in my H50 about a year ago using the stock (44CFM?) exhaust fan on my case and another cheapo Best Buy fan on the front of the rad for a push/pull config. Using the stock TIM that came on the block. I have my 955BE (C2) running at about 3.6-3.7GHz with around 1.5 volts. Current ambients are about 19C and folding with 100% cpu load is giving me 53C on the core right now. If the ambients go up a few degrees (i.e. when the furnace kicks on) or if I run Prime95, then core temp goes as high as 59 or so (not good on my CPU). I clean the dust out of the radiator every few months and I'm pretty sure I've got decent flow in my case with a 120mm intake fan on the front, 120mm intake fan on the side panel, 140mm exhaust fan on top, and of course the two 120mm fans exhausting with the radiator. When the GPU is folding it hits about 60 (vs. 40 idle) and raises the core temp by a couple degrees.

I've been thinking about investing in a better fan for the radiator since I feel like this cooler should be moving a lot more heat than it is. The air is definitely warm coming out the back, but it just doesn't feel like much airflow. Since this thread is the biggest case of TLDR I've ever seen, I was wondering if anybody had any suggestions for fans. I was toying with the idea of getting one of these bad boys. Computer is on 24/7 in the bedroom and this is a 45dB fan so noise is a consideration. I'd either plug it into the mobo CPU fan socket (that would enable me to control this particular fan's speed, right? It works for the fan currently plugged in there) or get a nice fan controller (which would require me to remount the block to slip in the temperature probe in order to have automatic throttling, and I'd rather not screw with that).

I'm seeking advice and am all ears!


edit:

Now considering these fans, too, since they have high flow and PWM connectors. It seems the one above does not have PWM.

wow these fans are nice. I might get myself one and try these too and see if there is any temp change. It's nice to see higher cfm so we can take away all the heat out.

I'm hearing impaired so lucky me i could care less about the noise lmao.

I also have a hearing loss so the noise doesn't bother me much, either. My girlfriend whines about it, tough...


I've concluded that the first fan I posted is only a 3pin connector. I'm still trying to figure out if my motherboard is able to throttle a 3pin fan using the CPU or chassis fan connectors. I'm guessing not, which is unfortunate because the 4pin PWM (link 2 of the 3) fan is like three times as expensive with shipping. Fan in link 3 does not appear to be a PWM fan--it just has a resistor you can put in the loop to manually control the fan voltage, which is not what I want. So fans 1 and 3 would require a controller for me, and fan 2 should work with PWM control on my board. I just wish it weren't $30.

I've been eye ballin these fans for a while CM Blademaster. Unfortunately for me my fan controller can't do PWM fans but I like their high static pressure which is a big plus for a rad fan.

Anyone tried over volting their fans ? im curious to set up some 17-24v fans on my radiator im not too sure how they will hold up though ..

I had 2 in a push-pull config. GREAT fans, but if you don't have any pwm connectors on your motherboard or controller they're loud at full blast. I'm surprised they hardly get any attention on here.

My pump died in my watercooling setup after around 3 years use....
Ordered a h50 and am going back to air cooling for the gpu... don't have time anymore to dick around when parts fail like that.

I would guess that air cooler uses a fan right? A lot of fans are rated for 30,000 hours which is a little more than 3 years of 24/7 use so guess that whole idea that of worrying about parts failing is kinda moot.....3 years is not that bad for any one mechanical computer part to last. A lot of fans just give warranties for a year and that's it so they don't even come close to supporting their product for 3 years.

I don't even think the H50 has been out for 3 years so we will see if it even lasts that long.
