Actually, I will I need something to do! lol
I've thought about it (Push⇇Shroud⇇Pull⇇Shroud⇇Grill). I got such good temps as it is so I don't think I will do it. Unless it works crazy good for you.

I'm actually thinking more along these lines...

Push ⇒ Shroud||Shroud ⇒ Rad ⇒ Pull --- OR ----

Push ⇒ Rad ⇒ Shroud||Shroud ⇒ Pull <-- Which would be my config now, plus an extra shroud.

So you have the following?

OK 1st off with your case and GFX card you H50 will work better in exhaust. Second it will work better in (Push⇇Shroud⇇H50⇇Pull⇇Shroud). I don't think you understand the shroud. Noting will happen with "Shroud||Shroud" one shroud just does fine. If your are really stuck on intake for the H50 then set it up like this (Shroud⇉Push⇉H50⇉Shroud⇉Pull).

Actually, I did both.. and my temps dropped by 3c using my intake.

My H50 is mounted at the top where my exhaust fan used to be.

+ to my above post...

I want to see if the suction pressure (?) will increase with a double shroud.

I do know that another shroud between my Push and Rad will help, but I'm waiting on some special order #6 Machine screws which are 2-1/4" so I don't have to do anything extra.

This is just an experiment, since I don't remember if Skinny tried a double shroud?

Thanks for the great idea! I used my 120mm, and put it there..but I'm sure the 140mm will look better with some UV paint & a UV cathode near by!

I will purchase 2x UK 3000s and some fluorescent paint, but was wondering if I painted the fans.. would there be some performance decrease?

Again I don't think you understand a shroud. The longer the shroud the harder it becomes for the fan to push or pull air. I do HVAC for a living and I've seen huge and small systems that have 1/2" - 1 1/2" shrouds. Fans that are way bigger than these 120mm fans. If you want to do dual shrouds do it like this (Shroud⇉Push⇉H50⇉Shroud⇉Pull) other wise you are just putting a greater load on the fan. Even then I doubt the double shroud idea will work, or get me a better idle temp of 19°C. Also with your current setup it's wrong, it should be (Shroud⇉Push⇉Rad⇉Pull). The way you did it (Push⇉Rad⇉Shroud⇉Pull) basically you just made a duct. There is no shroud or elimination of dead air with the way you set it up.

I tried both ways. The reason my intake works better than the push setup, is because I'm not recirculating hot/warm air. <-- Cooler/Fresher air being pulled into the case, thru the radiator, is much much much better than the warmer air (from Gfx and PSU) being pushed out of the case.

Again, I'm just doing this because I'm bored, and I really want to see what the real world effects are... AND hopefully it will quiet it down just a bit more.

I think only high end WC'ing or LN2 would get you better idle temps lol.

To explain my logic regarding sound: I don't care as long as my temps are below 60c at Full Load (Linpack Test), because I do a TON of video encoding, and I leave my machine in all night. I will glady sacrifice some lower temps for an even quieter system.
