Thats the key for intake setups... a good exhaust option thumb.gif

Ive got a 38mm Ultra Kaze 2000 as my rear exhaust and the rad air gets sucked out before it knows whats happening smile.gif

Anyone have a h40/60/70/80 pump that they dont need and want to trade for something? Turns out my h50 pump is too tall for my sff build :c

Hey thanks! Yeah those 88CFM fans are Yate Loons, the best $7 fan I'll ever buy ($4 with my employee discount <3). Any recommendations for a nice intake fan? The stock Corsair one is nice, but it's just...meh. Was going to pick up a Gentle Typhoon 4250 when my work get's them back in stock.

I feel like you're going to have a hard time finding a stand alone pump unit for a Corsair. Did you already take the loop apart (if you're modding that is)? If not you could always sell/return it. H50's sell like hotcakes here, and on ebay.

Hey Webster, pair a couple Yates together (same speed) and you'll be fine. When I had the H50 I took the BNIB fan and hacked out the internals and made a shroud out of it. thumb.gif

Hai guys. wave2.gif

It's not Corsair that makes these units so maybe someone should suggest the bracket idea to Acetek and Coolit, who are the companies that built the(I think Coolit is the new guy) Hydro Series Coolers. smile.gif

Thanks for the feedback bro, much appreciated. Push pull is the way to go apparently?

And I haven't done research yet, and I definitely will, but could someone give me a quick 5-sentence summary of what a shroud actually is?

Push / pull is the preferred option. If you can manage a shroud or two... even better thumb.gif

A shroud physically moves the fan hub away from the radiator. This opens up more rad surface area to be cooled by the fan, thus increasing the cooling potiental of the rad.

Typically, you can expect a 1-3c drop in temps. Some people report more, Me, I got @ 2c difference. Doesnt sound like much but its a cake-walk mod and who doesnt want lower temps for not alot of effort.

Setup:
Fan>shroud>rad>shroud>fan

Shroud (ex-fan)
450

Shrouds in action:
450

Oh wow a pic and everything! Thanks so much man, I'll see what I can do! I highly doubt I can fit the shrouds though, let alone push/pull mad.gif

The last pic was a P/P UK 2000 38mm fan setup with 2 x 25mm shrouds and a 25mm rad. Total lenght took the whole width of 2 x 5.25 bay (151mm) eek.gif

The shroud makes a difference by a few degrees I used to have them on my H70 but it is hard to do with the H100

Don't know what you're complaining about. My P/P with one shroud took up two 5.25 bays vertically. Things were so tight in there I barely got my ODD in and only with some creative wiggling of the ODD. tongue.gif

Although your setup would take up 4 bays in vertical orientation in my 932. biggrin.gif
