post #1811 of 28252
My new case finally came in so now I won't be ashamed of having no cable management like my old 300. I was trying to put the rad on the top but with the 140mm fan there I didn't have enough room.

Got a question for you H50 owners, as I'd like to be one myself in the near future:

Will this cooler fit as a push-pull setup in an Antec P180 case, with a GB P45-UD3R board? I'm thinking adding the 2nd 120 for a push-pull will be cutting it too close to the cooler's copper base. I've been searching for someone else who's asked the question in google, but nothing. Can anyone help?

If your tight on space you can mount one of the fans on the outside of the case. --- fan --- casewall --- rad --- fan. With or without a shroud and intake or exhaust whichever you prefer.

Problem is, the rear exaust of my case has its own shroud, and it's beveled. =/

Max Temp: 49.5

Without Shroud in Push+Pull
Intake: Push Fan>>Rad>>Pull Fan
Max Temp: 45
Exhaust: Pull Fan<<Rad<<Push Fan
Max Temp: 49

I just realized that I screwed up the test for Shroud/Exhaust. I put the shroud between the Push & the Rad, and it should go between the Pull Fan & the Rad. Will retest and expect better results with that setup, but so far the winner is No Shroud, Intaking air.

Whenever running H50 fans as intake, I would flip the top front fan to exhaust, also, so the air at the top of the case should be a straight shot over the radiator and directly out the front, the only obstacle being the Corsair Heatsink itself.

I know some have said the shroud wouldn't be worth putting on, but I never imagined I would get cooler temps *without* the shroud at all.

I'll rerun that Exhaust/Shroud test and report back again.
OK, I reran the Exhaust test, using the shroud between the pull fan and the rad, and I also received my second shroud in the mail today, so I ran both intake and exhaust tests with shrouds between both the push & the pull fans -- the results astounded me, but it looks like I am going to be removing both shrouds and running as intake, push pull (next 4 tests: one fan only, push intake, pull intake, push exhaust, pull exhaust).

All of these tests were conducted with a Xigmatek Dark Knight fan on full speed (2000rpm, 89cfm) on the outside face of the rad, and an ACRyan Blackfire4 fan on full speed (2000rpm, 79cfm) on the inside face rad, flipping the fans in place from intake to exhaust & back, depending on the test.

Results:
Exhaust
No Shroud: 49
Pull Shroud: 49.5
2 Shrouds: 49
Intake
No Shroud: 45
Pull Shroud: 46
2 Shrouds: 48

I guess that guy who said putting a shroud on won't do any good was more right than I expected -- the shrouds on my system actually raise the temps. I wonder if that speaks to the low static pressure of my fans, more than being shrouded... Now I think I'm at at the point where only better fans will improve my temps.

The Storm Scout isn't a huge case, and I was wondering if I rotated my tubes a lil' farther away from the rad...maybe it would bend less. I should try it out
Yea Corsair says you can bend the heck out the tubes with no temperature difference. I say don't, I believe its not a good idea to put stress on tubes that have liquid inside them. Especially inside our PCs.

You can try (Push⇇Shroud⇇Case|H50⇇Pull) or (Push⇇Case|Shroud⇇H50⇇Pull). Like I did:

I think you can some guy in the UK is selling a Antec P180 mini with the H50. I'll take that back after looking at other PICs of your case, the H50 will definitely fit.

That Antec you linked in the Mini, I have the OG fat P180. I'm not sure if the clearance is different, but ultimately depends on the board. I'm not sure what the measurements are from the left edge of the board to the CPU mounting brackets. I may have another 3-4mm clearance from the outer edge of the mounting brackets to the top-most part of the H50 cooper base. I'm just hoping I don't have to go buy wire cutters so I can stack a 120 on the outside of the case...

That's why I have it in (Push⇇Shroud⇇H50⇇Pull) now.
...

(Push⇇Shroud⇇H50⇇Pull) - (Push⇉H50⇉Shroud⇉Pull)
Your arrows are completely confusing me!! Shouldn't arrows from a Push fan always be "pushing" away from it, i.e.
Push>> or >>Push or Push⇉ or ⇇Push
This
Push⇇
makes no sense to me...

Likewise with:
Pull<< or ⇉Pull
instead of
⇇Pull

Sorry, I'm just not getting it any more. Aaargh.

Cyclometric I'm just showing the direction of air flow. Don't mind what is pushing what is pulling. That's all perspective according to the air flow. I'm more using the term push-pull than putting the words in order.

I still say yes. I'm trying to figure out what exactly you're trying to get at, but this is what I found. I hope it helps.

• GA-EP45-UD3R:



• GA-EP45T-UD3P:



Then I found this here:

I concur!
