If you're happy with those temps/volume, then keep it, but people generally recommend the Gentle Typhoons AP-15 for best performance/volume, while the Yate Loon High Speeds are for price/performance(about $4-$7 per fan depending on which store you get it from). The great thing about the Yates are that you can choose to run them at any speed you like, as long as your motherboard allows it or you have a fan controller, so they can still perform great at lower speeds.

Well to be honest the Yate on my HR03 GT is quieter at full tilt than the CM R4 it replaced even though the specs say it should be louder. My R4's on the H50 are def audible at full blast. Even if the Yates are slightly louder they should def outperform the R4's and I only run them at 100% while gaming and I wear ear buds for that so its no big deal


Edit:
Oh and don't forget I did dynomat a few panels inside my case and it quieted it down quite a bit

CM R4 fans had completely over listed specs by CM for everything. They have since changed all their listed specs for them except for the DB rating I think is still listed at 19 which is accurate it is just 19db at the lowest speed the fan will run at instead of listing what the db is at the highest speed.

I'm loving these Yate Loon high speeds Between the one on my gpu cooler and top exhaust they are keeping my gpu and system temps 5-7C cooler under heavy gaming than the CM R4's did even with my H50 as an intake. I'm really itching now to throw my other two on the H50 and see how much I can gain on cpu temps.


These were my temps after 20 minutes of COD4 with the R4's and the H50 as an intake with ambient temps at 21C

These are my temps now with the Yate high speed on the gpu and top exhuast after about 2 hours of COD4 with ambients also at 21C

Hey all!

I am new to the club. I must say I am in love with my new H70. I upgraded from a Zalman 9500A fan which was brought over from my old build. I soon realized that I would need more cooling power for OCing my cpu. Idle temps between the two aren't too terribly different, but while on load my H70 keeps my PC quite cool. I am also using the low settings on the fans (~1500rpm, via the included cables. I may remove them when I start OCing more hardcore to go back to the ~2000rpm default.)

I am going to include a good amount of pics, primarily because I wish someone had some detailed info/pics about the H70 in an Antec 902 when I was considering my purchase! (I didn't see much in this thread... lots of 1200s tho)



right after install!!

in action!!



Just a heads up for any Antec 902 owners looking to purchase the H70: You will need to do a tiny bit of "modding" to your case. The proper word would be "chopping"

The side-panel fan mount gets in the way when trying to slide the panel back on. No biggie for me, as I never intend to used a side fan anyways. I went ahead and hacked off a bit of the plastic, and it works just fine.



Anyways..... Lovin' this cooler, and hope that this post helps anyone with an Antec 902 thinking about the H70!!

Xristo here are the pictures of what i did with the cold cathodes, this will help you and also make your cable management look nicer and the outcome will be better



Uploaded with ImageShack.us

This is where the first cathode is..on top far left corner so it doesn't bump into the H70 when upon closing the side panel.



Uploaded with ImageShack.us

this is where i route my cable through the little hole of the hard drive bays. Pluggin in the Invertor of the cold cathode.



Uploaded with ImageShack.us

This is my invertor for the cold cathode. The wires to power it up is behind the invertor leading to another hole behind the case tower leading to the molex and switch on and off bracket holder. I know you notice little ledges scruffed up, that's because i had to bend the lines to make my cd/dvdrom to slide in. It wouldn't fit cuz it was too big. not a big deal anyways.. back to the point.



Uploaded with ImageShack.us

this is behind my case tower, see the invertor switcher and molex? This is how i had it done. I duct taped the switch to ON at all times when i boot my pc. The molex are leaning against the wall plugged in so i can close my back panel case.



Uploaded with ImageShack.us

This is my second cold cathode lined up on the sides plugging in the invertor, i also pushed the remaining cable that's hanging out into the bay on top next to it. Now it looks clean and i cannot see the cathodes at all.

Hope this helps. I could take a pic of my case with uv reactive but it's hard to do because i have a cellphone camera but i will do one later so you can get the idea. Hope this helps for those who needed to put their cold cathodes out of view!

I just won an H70 in a F@H contest. Currently I'm using a Xigmatek HDT-S1283. It's a 120MM cooler but its the one with three heat pipes instead of four. Do you guys think I'll see a big improvement in cooling on my i5 750?

I have mine on set at the top in the back right above the motherboard basically hidden by the two top fans and then the other at the very bottom of my case where it is out of sight totally but, my problem is that nothing glows because the cathodes are not close enough.
