Is this why my H50 is noisy as hell when I first boot up? It goes away within
8-10 minutes or so, but it's really annoying.

Also, is it best to turn the fan around to exhaust for a push/pull? It seems
I've been reading that's been the preferred way to mount this setup.

BTW, idle temps are 39-40c, and 54-56c load.

It's entirely possible that is what's causing the noise.

For a Push Pull you want to identify which you're looking to set up P/P Exhaust or P/P Intake.

Someone here, I cannot remember whom, showed us his Radiator after having it set up in Intake at the rear of his case. It looked like the Fans sucked in a Rabbit all the fluff that was built up on his Radiator. If you live in a high dust environment like I do, I recommend Exhaust.

You want your P/P to look like this...

------[Intake fan]-------[shroud]---------[radiator]-----------[exhaust fan]----------(direction of flow)----->

you probably do not need a shroud on the other side as the shroud is meant to back the fan off the Radiator to allow more flow over the vanes without impeding it. When your fan is directly on the Radiator it creates negative flow because there is a dead spot where the air doesn't get clear access to all the vanes on the radiator. Take a small juice glass the size of the fan hub and touch it to the center of the Rad. You will have little to no airflow over those vanes. That's a pretty big waste of cooling potential. There are YouTube videos showing smoke tests that are quite informative about the issue. You would do well to check them out.

~Ceadder
I have two questions for ya

1st....isnt that diagram depicting an intake P/P?

wouldnt exhaust be


<-----direction of air flow--------(Pull Fan)--------Rad--------(Push Fan)---------inside of case


2nd question...where is the best place or even a place to buy those shrouds? ive looked around and i cant seem to find them...but im probably not looking for the correct thing...so could you point a h60 newb in the general direction of said shrouds?

Most people just get super cheap 120mm fans and cut the blades out to make shrouds.

Thanks for the quick reply Ceadder.

OK, I'll try and flip the radiator down and reverse the fan to exhaust
through the back of the case. I'm not concerned so much with the
temps as I am with the noise, so I won't try the shroud thingy yet.

The office can get dusty but not as bad as that guy you were talking
about. I remember seeing that thread too....that dust was ridiculous!

Also, I plan on mounting a fan just above the hard drive cage to help cool
down that scalding top GTX 570, so I'll have sufficient intake to offset the
loss from the H50's fan in the back.

Thanks again!

You can buy them too but most folks just make their own just because they have dead or crappy fans laying around. My example would be that I had one where the fan blade broke. Rather than just trying to glue it on and cause a possible imbalance I just cut out the motor/blades assembly and turned it into a shroud. Works well!

Here's something I have worked on during the weekend. It actually is possible to front mount the H50 in an Antec 902. Temps are more or less the same as my rear intake, though it's hard to be accurate when the temps outside range from 60F to 80F.

Only "mod" I had to do was drill out bigger holes for the spare fan bracket my case came with. The rest was all cleaning out every part of my case and cable management.

Sorry about the quality of the pictures, I was too lazy to bust out a DSLR for a few quick pictures, so I just used my phone.

Here is the fan "mod" using a 5/32 drill to fit in the screws for the H50:


This is what it looks like attached to my case:

Are screws supplied with that and will they fit in the h70 rad?
