[Official] Corsair Hydro Series Club - Page 1921

post #19201 of 28251
I'm using 2 of the cheap high speed Yate Loon D12SH-12 fans, they seem to work out ok for the H70. (Better than what I had before anyway)

Set it up to a 4.8GHz overclock @1.35v, it got up to 72-76c range with prime blend testing for about 10 mins. (32-34c idle) Ambient temps were around 22-23c, give or take with the A/C going.

Still at respectable temps IMO.

But changing over allowed me the opportunity to throw in my Controller for the Summer. I'd still be on the H50, but my testing the waters with my H50 led me to crave even cooler temps. Especially since my NB ran pretty high without having a fan sucking air into the area the way the Stock cooler and Air Coolers do. I've got my FC block and my CPU block and am just about ready to step away from the Stock cooler for good. The one thing that I'm going to miss about the Hydro Series is not having to do much in the way of maintenance to it. Other than cleaning out the dust bunnies from the bottom of the Radiator that is.

Anyway, you might be surprised as to the benefits of cheap@$$ Yate Loons. I've still got some and when I go with a 360, that's my first fan of choice. D12SH-124R connected to a 3 way splitter and hooked up to my RheoSmart controller.

I know rpm is not necessarily the most important part of a fan for a radiator but it is a good indication of relative static pressure. Its hard to find specs for my fans but they are a lot better than any yate loon 120x25 yate loon that i can purchase or find. Trust me i can feel these things from half way across the room, the h70 didnt really live it up for me. The reality is that the massive radiator doesnt decrease the temps by a huge amount because the design is bottlenecked by the pump and tubing. It isnt bad, its just not exactly what i expected i guess....

Time for you to get into real custom watercooling then! At least you can either sell your H70, or use the rad for your loop.

However, I have my H100 installed now as...push/pull. Lol, I did a little modding and got a push pull setup.

Even though I loved my H70. It gave be great temps under loads. I have posted them quite a bit in the Graphite thread, but any cooler that will give you~20c cooler than stock, while overclocking by 1/3 is a good cooler in my book. Of course I read about it before I bought it and knew it is competitive with high end air coolers, not full water loops.

The H100 seems to be giving me about ~8c drop in CPU temps over the H70.

I was reading a thread where Corsair George mentioned that the most important fan to have good static pressure for is the push fan, while the pull fan is not as important. I was considering how to connect the fans in the H100, I was going to pair the stock fans push/pull and the Scythe high speed PWM fans I was using on my H70 as push/pull. However, I decided to use the Scythe fans as pull and the stock H100 fans as push (since they're supposed to have a great static pressure). I modded the front of my case at the top to make room for another fan, allowing me to move the entire H100 assembly one fan length forward.
I had tried Ceadderman's suggestion of installing the bottom fans first and it almost worked. It cleared all my board components except the actual block/pump. The block was just too thick so the only option to keep push/pull was the mod.

Here's a few pics:

Mucho fans on top now:


Cover still fits:


Completed install:


Closeup:


I had to orient the block this way to avoid a row of capacitors over the CPU socket.

I will post some temps tomorrow. I did a 20 minute run tonight (prime95 and furmark), and I was getting 51c with my fans turned down. Yesterday I was getting 61c with my fans turned down using the H70. I believe we have a 2c cooler ambient tonight so that's a 8c difference.

I will post temps and screenshots tomorrow.

nice one, at least you have a spare room for a third fan that can be done with the 650d without cutting through metal

Well you're lucky you got it easy. I cannot order one due to the fact hearing it doesn't fit Antec 1200 and i don't wanna replace my bad boy fan for just that cooler cuz heat rises. I may have to consider a new tower in the future but i don't wanna get anything. I wish Corsair could have invented a special sealed cooler where you can de-attach the tubes and re-attach them to your liking cuz most cases have hole ports ready for custom water cooling. I would most much like to see self sealed coolants to be mounted on the back rear of most cases instead of having to install it inside if you cannot take them off.

I know custom water is the only way to go but i lack the idea of maintenance anyways. I clean my filters but doing distilled water cleaning is just too much hassle for me. Just my 2 cent. Growl.. i want a H100.

Is it wise to get a Fan Controller for the H70 to increase the RPMs a bit and possibly get lower temps? I've tried searching around and a couple people said not to get Fan controllers for the H70, but I really can't find any info on it.

Right now I'm currently running stock H70 fans and not looking to upgrade the fans, just wondering if it's ok to use a fan controller? Also, any recommendations? I would need it to fit in the 3.5" bay as I have my H70 modded to intake from the front area where my 5.25" bays are.

My idle temps w/ my 2600k are around 30C. Don't forget that these chips have Turbo Boost so when your CPU is idling it is underclocked. While my cpu is idling it is at 1600mhz.
