post #1931 of 28303
Lemme in da club! Just bought one last week and been trying to tweak it a bit. Got some new fans that I am gonna mount on it in a push pull. Some Ultra kaze. Gonne hook em up to a fan controller though so I can still hear. Anyways, tried to swift through the ton of pages and couldnt find if someone else used 38mm fans on it but if you did do you know the type of screws you would need? Or what did you use to hookem up?

Heres the pic. I know its not the best one but It was WAY to large when I first took it and had to slim it down a bunch. Anyone know some good software for doing this? Also, how do I get the nifty tag for Corsair on my sig?

de Cossatot,

After much reserach, I would strongly recommend the S-flex SFF 21F (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835185006) over the Ultra Kaze 38mm. Static pressure at 1600 rpm is slightly under the Ultra Kaze 2000 rpm but the S-Flex has almost no noise. When the Ultra is dialed down to a comparable noise level the S-Flex beats it. See the review here: http://www.****************/reviews/...e_120mm_fans/5

Garanthor,

DOH, those were the first ones I picked out but I ordered the Ultra kaze already. I'll put em in when they get here but if they are way to loud I'll switch em up the the S-flex. Thanks for the info bud.

I would recommend Gelid GC-Extreme. It blows away most everything out there that I've seen. It has a very thin viscosity and 0 cure time. Here's a review of the product. The test results against AS-5 and Noctua NT-H1 are around 2:50 mark. And here's another review with it in the 80-way TIM Performance shootout.

Beaten buy Arctic Silver 5 (which is years old) in the 80-way TIM Performance shootout. Looks to me like rebranded AC MX-2 or MX-3, like Prolimatech do with there Thermal paste.

Are you kidding me? People are reporting real world temp drops up to 5-7c lower with GC Extreme over AS-5! Perhaps you're thinking of the older paste?

Did you not look at your own link?



Lower = Better.

You will get exactly the same temps with MX3, that im using now, because thats what it is.

Well you've found the fans already. The screw thread is classified as "6-32", these will screw directly into the radiator. Pick the length accordingly.

You get the "nifty" tag in your sig by copy and pasting the the text in the code box underneath where the sig is quoted on the first post.

I have a 38C fever at the moment and the thought of finding where all your names would go alphabetically on the list is too much right now I will update it tomorrow.

EDIT: it's my understanding that GC extreme isnt such a good thermal paste because it isnt silver-based. I cant quite remember the material science behind this but I think Silver-based compounds will cure over time and produce lower temperatures.

I'm not sure I follow your point? I switched from AS-5 to GC-Extreme and got a 3c drop. Although the one review shows them identical, you shouldn't base everything on a single review, rather, compare several reviews with different environments, gear, etc. (There's plenty of reviews and feedback on the web - just search) As I mentioned, my personal experience is a 3c drop and others I know had as much as 5c.

PS: If you hadn't looked at the other review I posted, it shows (they aren't even close):

Arctic Silver 5
46c (idle) / 59c (load)

GC-Extreme
40c (idle) / 52c (load)

Anyways, I'm just pointing out my personal experience with both and my results. I appreciate your feedback though.
