[Official] Corsair Hydro Series Club - Page 1591

post #15901 of 28306
I've been with this thread almost from the start and am just amazed at how much attention it's gotten. Lots of happy H50 and now H70 owners out there. I am also fairly happy with my H50 and after going push/pull, mounting it in front drive bays and lapping both the H50 and my CPU, over time I found that I just wanted more. So I've finally broken down and ordered the Rasa 750 RX360 water cooling system. All fans will be in push pull (six total), and I'm mounting this externally on my HAF 922. Order should be in next week. Once everything is installed and running I'll post pics and both before and after temps for comparison. H50 was good and I have no problems recommending it to anyone but I'm expecting big things from my new Rasa kit (gen 2 double thickness 360mm rad!!) More to follow.

So which Gentle Typhoon fans would be best to replace the stock Corsair fans for the H70? The AP-15 or one of the newer higher speed ones?

Okay i came on here prior when i got my H70 and got a pair of Sycthe UK 3K's and said..noise..no problem..well after i built an intake shroud out of an old 120mm fan body it got louder...now...i was wrong...they cool great..Cannot fault them there.Some lapping and MX3 and i have not seen over 46c under any load testing program and i run 3.9/4.0 daily so its not performance.
I started really paying attention to the noise because i would put the computer to sleep when i leave in the Am and when i would get home i would hit the space bar and it would ramp up instantly and i had to put my cell phone next to me or in a water glass in the living room so i could hear it.
i knew then,that yeah i had been wrong.So anyone have any advise on some fans that can do 85% of what these can with less noise.have to keep small kittens away from the back of the computer as this damn thing will suck
them right in...lol...ummm only kidding..a little....really.

with the corsair fan overvolted , it is extremely loud i mean i can hear it over the 10 other fans inside the case even with a shroud to quiet it down abit . The noise dont bother me though , my friends think its crazy .. lol but i know its hard at work , i had noctua fans in push pulll before i swapped back to the corsair fan and overvolted it ..they were practically silent but the airflow was crap .. Silence = Decreased performance , thats when i decided to forget about silence and overvolted the corsair fan to get some real numbers happening , will never go back to silent fans they are useless on a rad .

I would love a pair of gt's just to see what all the hype is about , overvolt them blow them up and turn them into shrouds =D

The 2000 rpm Ultra Kaze are much quieter. I'd say about on par with the R4s and they are the next best and cheapest cooling solution at 38 mm. If you want quieter than that I prefer the Scythe S-Flex 1600 rpm fans over the Scythe GTs. The noise level is almost the same but I find they have a more pleasant softer lower pitch vs the higher whine of the GTs.

My H50 at present, has a pair of R4's in push/pull, mounted on the rear of my case venting as rear exhaust (which I found to be working better then blowing as intake); and they also have a pair of 25mm shrouds sandwiched between each fan.

At present... its like this: <--airflow<--fan<--shroud<--case<--Rad<--shroud<--fan

So, if I took those Shrouds out, and put in an H70 with the R4's.

What I see any improvement?
I wouldn't upgrade if I were you. I did switch from an H50 to H70 (with the same fan configuration) and didn't see a huge improvement. Just save your money and wait for something better or go build a custom loop yourself.

well going to go to MicroCenter and see what they have on the shelf im not opposed to buying a few pair of fans and checking the noise VS performance.

i wont compromise too much on temps as this chip loves the cold.

hi all. i thank everyone for the wealth of knowledge. been a lurker for a while now.

had my h50 for about 1.5 months now, and couldn't be happier (well, i probably could w/ a newer system). like many, i have tried multiple intake/exhaust methods. ran single fan intake for about a month, then took a spare 120mm, and push/pulled intake...saw a marginal drop. recently, i got a wild hair, and added another 140mm near my drive bays (Sniper case). further playing around, i found i had enough cool air to start exhausting, dropping the temp 4C. this prompted me to pick up 2 x GT AP-14's.

ALL HAIL THE GT's!!!

how crazy is this fan?? slapped them in, on a PWM splitter, and dropped the load temp another 6C! they are QUIET too. crazy man, just crazy.

and just think, i still have lapping and picked up some MX-4 TIM.
