Just to let everyone know iv been testing out the corsair fan at 17v and its been running like this for a month now and theres no sign of it going to give up , i think its a good idea because after all it was designed for a radiator and giving it some more cfm would only do good .. Im guessing its at around 2500 rpm , maybe faster . Performs really well on my rad with a shroud prime took me upto around 74c . Its relativly easy to overvolt a fan im suprised i havent heard much about it on here .. I got good results using the corsair fan its strong and i almost recommend it wont die with extra voltage . Only down fall it is abit loud at higher rpms .

Can you over-volt the fan using the computer PSU still? Serial a 12V and 3.3V/5V Line and then provide the 15.5v or 17V line to the fan? Does the PWM or RPM sense line still work?

What lines did you use to do this? Guessing you just cut a connector off and spliced in the connector.

I heard that the h70's stock fans are quite loud. S this true?
I dont mind noise because i have an over the ear headset that cancels alot of noises, and i usually have all 7 of my antec df-85 fans at max, but is the stock fans really that loud? I dont want a jet engine in my case lol

Jet engine no... Louder then an "average" case fan? Yes...

If the case is right next you you then it may be a little obnoxious, but if its on the ground or above the desk I have other fans that are louder then the stock fan.

The H50 stock fan is the same as the H70.. the H70 just comes with two.

My case is two feet away from me on the ground under my desk, i wont notice the noise?
And is it worth the money? I dont want a huge heatsink but idk if the h70 is worth the extra money than the h50

If your going from nothing to an H50/H70 then most will say the H70, gives about 2-3 lower temps at load and better idle temps also. (mostly because all the reviews use the H50 only with the single fan and the H70 with the two fans)

But the H70 is a good cooler. the reason why i went with the H50 (H70 was not out yets but would have gotten it over the H50 if it was) is I did not want 2+lbs of copper haning 7" off my MB.

I dont think you will be able to noice the fans to much or at least bother you. And if they do use a fan controller so they are slower if you dont have other noises going on.

You can also get shrouds that usualy drops the noise down since the air is less "turbulant" then with out them.

So ill be good with an h50 w an extra fan? I heard the radiator was thicker on the h70 which help transfer heat (or something like that) but if its only 2-3 different temps then i dont think its worth it. But since they are both good coolers then i guess ill decide when i get the money

Well The H50 has a higher profile, and the H70 does have a thicker radiator. But with a good set of fans and shrouds its fairly close. You get enought (I have found) air flow with good fans (AP15's or Yate Loon's) that the air has cooled to "ambiant" or as much as it can to give me low temps. The best thing you can do as been discussed in the last few pages is that Lapping the copper plate is a good idea and will give better temps.

You can usualy find the H50 also on sale at Best Buy (finaly something thats a good buy from them) or from the Egg with free shipping. Look around for the best deal.
