Does anyone use a fan filter for your intake fan on their h70? If so, which one, and how much does it affect your air intake/cooling?

I'm getting the EVGA P55 Classified 200 Motherboard soon and I planned on putting a H70 on it, all inside a Corsair 600T case. However, on another forum I saw a thread in which someone was planning on using the same setup, and it concluded with there possibly not being enough headroom for the H70's radiator/fan configuration due to either the case or the motherboard, or a combination of both. Does anybody know how I could find out whether I'll be able to use this configuration or if I'm going to run into a problem with the H70 not fitting? Also, if such is the case, would the H50 theoretically not work either? Thanks for the help!

I'm not going to bother doing math because I really try to avoid when I'm able to but perhaps I can help anyway...

More info would help....like we're basically going to need to know 2 things(damn-it addition snuck up on me ) Where are you planning to mount the radiator? What fans/shroud mods(if any) could you conceive yourself trying? Compared to most cooling that's not custom W/C setup, the Hydra series has a very small cpu block and interferes hardly at all with most RAM fans/nb coolers etc..but the hoses may need some tweaking if you have either of those cooling devices in-between the radiator and the cpu block, but probably it will be fine.

Ok so...if you're planning on doing the default setup that corsair recommends: radiator in top left of case to intake cooler outside air(though still might grab some warm air if you have rear-exhaust GPU(s) etc..) then the H-70 is probably less likely to interfere with your fan(s) shroud(s) etc...because the CPU block is extremely shallow compared to the H50's. However, as far as mounting goes, the downside is that the hoses are noticeably shorter than the H50's. So if you're planning on mounting the Rad towards the front of the case as an intake you might have better luck with the H50(although I was still able to reach my top 5.25 bays in HAF-X with H70+shrouds-but I would have preferred reaching the bottom bays instead but couldn't).

It's very hard to answer if it will fit with a yes or no. Too many variables and who knows what a slight tweak hear or there can gain you....maybe if someone here is using the exact same hardware they give you a definite answer but other than that it's going to be a guess most likely.
I will say that this forum hasn't contained any rants about the H50/H70 being too big or not fitting, at least none that I'm aware of.
Hope that helped a little - you most likely can fit it though you may have to be slightly unconventional when you mount everything - but within reason i'm sure. Good luck!

I have the silverstone 120mm fan filters you can get at Fry's and noticed it did a nice job dampening the sound(somewhat, LOL) of my UK3K's. Have not really seen any noticeable difference when I remove it to blow it off other than audibly. Most of the dust is going to get stopped on the radiator if you don't use a filter but that's much more delicate and harder to clean well IMHO than a plastic filter I can run under the sink.

I planned on doing the default method of setting up the H70, which is on the 120mm backfan of the 600T case. The problem isn't really the water block on the CPU, but the actual huge radiator being mounted onto the case and the two fans pushing it further overhead of the motherboard. Here's a picture of the motherboard to better display the issue:

http://img155.imageshack.us/img155/1...76call05or.jpg

See how the northbridge's heatsink is so close to the CPU socket and so close to the I/O area? I've been seeing issues with people not being able to mount a H50 or H70 because the radiator would interfere with this heatsink on the motherboard. For further reference, I was looking elsewhere for CPU coolers and looked on Noctua's website for their NH-D14's compatibility with motherboards, and this very motherboard (EVGA P55/1156 socket Classified 200) is noted as not being compatible, while most other EVGA motherboards there with northbridge heatsinks likely just as big as the one on this motherboard were noted as having minimal-adjustable compatibility (for example, only being able to mount horizontally).

On the other hand, I came across the following video:


Pair that up with a picture of the motherboard he's using there:

http://img811.imageshack.us/img811/5...62call03mm.jpg

And you can clearly see that based on the picture there should be even LESS headroom for the H70 configuration, especially in comparison to the motherboard I have with a seemingly lower profile northbridge based on these pictures.

Hopefully that clears things up a bit more to allow for some better assistance, although your response was very helpful in ensuring that the profile of the water block on the H70 shouldn't be anything to worry about, among everything else you covered.

OK, yeah i have a better understanding now of your concern. Unfortunately I don't believe anyone that has posted in this thread, so far, is using that exact setup. Pulled THISoff the EVGA forums which apparently is a posting from a user that has the two set up and running.....might be worth joining that forum if you haven't already and PMing the guy to make sure^^

Yeah I recently registered there and made a thread concerning this, but thank you for finding that user! Typing my PM to him as soon as I make this post, hopefully he will have an answer. Regardless of the situation, I will try to remember to post the results here so that just in case anybody decides to do the same setup in the future they can refer back.
