That's not strictly true. It depends on how you have your case fans configured, and what your internal and external airflow is like. Ideally, yes, you should have it as an intake, but it's rather more complicated than just intake vs exhaust. I have mine configured as rear exhaust, and I get great temps. But I also have two GT-15s on the bottom front, and a 250mm side fan providing a good positive pressure airflow. Plus, the side fan is blowing external air right onto the rad. If I had it set up as an intake, I'd be sucking in warm air from my graphics card and PSU exhausts.

It just depends on what works best for your particular rig. And in many cases, the difference is only 2 or 3 degrees anyway.

Thanks for the info, good to know. I just got two GT-15s in the mail that I am putting on my H70.. maybe I will do some tests each way to determine what is best for my application. Although, one of my fans is mounted externally on my 650D, so I think the way I have it is probably the best in my circumstance.

Oooh fantastic, because I will be lapping my CPU and H50 this weekend...so if I some how destroy the H50 they will replace it! nice! Good thing I have an 212+ as a backup.. >.> <.<

Like luchog I prefer to have mine setup as a exhaust because of the warm air dumped at the rear by the PUS and graphics card. I have 2 Zalman ZM-F3s in the front as intakes and a Scythe S-Flex G as a intake at the bottom. On the top I have 2 Sycthe S-Flex Gs as exhaust. I would of mounted the H70 on the top but it won't fit. I think I'm going to contact Corsair about the pump noise.

I should probably post this in the Air cooling forum but I am curious if this would be optimal for my H50 in terms of case fans:

Attachment 203247

The only fan you can't see is the side 230mm fan which is intake against the motherboard. I am only asking to see if anyone notices anything funny or odd with this setup or anyway to help out the H50 or put it somewhere different without borking my airflow.

That's what Corsair ppls say, but many stick to traditional exhaust. Maybe 1 or 2c difference. It's a trade off. Coolest chip or coolest everything else. Warm chip air into case or warm case air out through rad.... Really, as long as yr case has plenty of fans sensibly arranged, not a big issue.

Ya I just did some idle/load tests and there wasn't a big difference at all. I saw my CPU temp raise 1C-2C, and everything else (MB, NB, SB temps) drop by 1C-2C... so I guess it really doesn't matter like you guys have already said. Now that I have my GT-15s installed I have opted to go with an exhaust setup.. simply because I love the look of the typhoon spinning inside my case
