Recently got a Corsair H50 for my system. Currently using the stock fan config, due to space limitations in my case, but it works for me! Temps are about 25 degrees idling and about 48 under full load using the specs below. For the price, I'm very happy. Had to do a top mount setup cause there wasn't enough top clearance on the back fan panel for the radiator. It's a tight squeeze between the radiator and the RAM, but I can still add and remove modules without any problems. Now I just have to get a cover for the fan cause right now it's a finger hazard. Already drew blood!

Planning on doing a bit more cable management when I get a new PSU and Radeon 6870 this summer. Currently have 2 -120mm Cooler Master fans on the side panel blowing air out and the stock AeroCool case fan on the bottom for better air flow through the cables. Also liking the way air is being sucked into my AeroCool Vs-9 case through the front bezel with the foam bay covers, causing less dust inhaled by the system.

Your actually going to end up with more dust with that setup in the long run. Your running a negative pressure case meaning your blowing more air out of the case than you are into the case thus every little crack and crevice in the case is sucking in air and dust with it. You should have front/side/bottom as intake and back and top as exhaust to give you a positive pressure case and less dust in the long run.

A lot of setups don't benefit from going with rear intake because of other things like video cards and power supplies venting hot air right below where the H50/70 should be getting cooler air. Unless you switch other fans around or have big changes on CFM on your exhaust fans compared to your intake fans with front/side being intake and rear/top being exhaust you should still maintain a positive pressure case while sticking with the ideal cooling setup for all components in your case not just one component.

There was zero change in the temps of intake or exhaust when my H50 was at the rear of my case but it raised the temps of all my other components by almost 10C so not really worth it.

The best suggestion is to try both see what works best for your particular setup. Don't just look at the one temp of your CPU look at all temps of your video cards and HDD's and any motherboard temp sensors you have too. Keeping one item a few C cooler at best isn't worth raising the temps of everything else in your setup and causing undue stressing.

Yes, yes. I think this might be the third time you've told the same exact thing to me.

In my case (and my actual case biggrin.gif), I didn't have any temp differences whether I was doing intake/exhaust, aside from CPU temps. I DO keep check of all my components and there were no significant changes in my temps. My northbridge, motherboard, HDD, GPU temps were exactly the same as they were when I was doing exhaust. In fact, I actually get even better temps as intake when I open my window (literally 4-5 inches from the rear fan) and turn my fans up to 2000RPM vs my usual 1000RPM, when compared to exhaust @ 2000RPM. For me, direct cold air going through the hot rad is much better than my intake fans sucking in slightly warm ambient room air.

Also, keep in mind I have an Antec 902, so it will definitely have negative air pressure when my rear is an exhaust and my 200mm top fan is higher than the low setting, even with 3 tricools as intakes. I've tested it out with a tissue on my PSU vents and open PCI-E slots, so please don't tell me otherwise.

I think HAF-X might have negative air flow, if you install all the fan in the proper place.

Intake - 200mm x 2 (sidepanel and front)
Exhaust - 200mm x 2 ( top 2) and 140mm exhaust

Not to mention the exhaust from PSU and GFX

Hey everyone, need some advice here.

I have a whole nice set of parts coming in, including an H70.

I have two cases I can put it in.

The first one is an NZXT EVO Beta. I was thinking of using it for the possibility of top mounting the radiator to one of the fan mounts there.

My second choice is my Mystique 632s. That case gives me more room to work with, and I can mount it to the rear exhaust.

Any advice from those of you that have either case?

I've been debating whether or not to move the top fan on my side panel to the back as they're all plugged directly into the motherboard, but now I might as well move it to the back so I don't have to keep unplugging that one. Also the reason why I have them both going out is because they make a loud whirring sound when they're set as intake. I'm hoping it won't make that sound when I move it to the back panel and set it to intake.

The bottom fan on my side panel is fine as that at least is sucking the hot air out from my 9800.

rear exhaust gives more case real estate than does a top mounting. Top mounting sometimes gets very close the ram especially with the h70 since its larger and push pull. Unless the case has alot of room up top I say the one with the rear exhaust. Or take the case you like best and you can always do something like:

Does the side panel have a grate/cover over where you attach the fans? My latest build just had some slats that went over the fan for a guard and it made a similar noise I cut that out and put a metal fan guard over it and eliminated the noise completely. If you can take the fan off and it doesn't make the same noise then it is probably the grate/cover.

I found a nice Gigabyte GA-X48-DS4 motherboard and another Radeon HD4870 exactly the same as the one I have. So, I transferred my CPU, video card and memory to the new board, and installed it all in my Corsair 600T. Threw in a Corsair AX750 PSU as well.

Wow, the temps have all gone up from low 30c to high 30c on all the cores. (from <> 32 to <> 37). The case temp has increased from a best of about 27c to a best of about 31c with all the fans cranked, and the H70 fans running at 1170 RPM, I noticed the Gigabyte board runs the fans faster than the ASUS board did, even from boot, by about 100RPM and increases the RPM faster in response to temperature increases. I'm going to torture it this weekend and see how high the temps will go.

I removed one hard drive rack and added a fan to the remaining rack to try and help move the air. The flow is surprisingly good considering half of it is blocked by the side of the hard drive rack. Only makes a couple of degrees difference on the hard drive when I have it cranked up though. Will be experimenting with the air flow direction on my H70. Currently it is pulling in with two fans directly behind it pulling out. Next week I'm going to reverse them and see if it makes any difference. I believe if I make it push out it will create negative pressure, which I don't want. Also considering a hole in the side with a grill and another 200mm fan pulling in.
