post #20281 of 28303
I've never seen a 120x20. Not even at the electronic component suppliers. Over time the distributors are bound to drop the low selling items.

This Stacker 830 actually came with standard R4 sleeve bearing fans, but they're long gone.

But guess what ...? I just updated by price and supply lists and in amongst the R4 sickleflows, megaflows, blademasters, etc, etc, is a lonely item listed as a 4-pack of 120mm R4 ball bearing fans! biggrin.gif Stock check tomorrow.

I still want to fix the current issue. I might order some of that honeycomb stuff they use to straighten airflow. Would be interesting to see.

I'm going with 120x20 Yate Loon D12SM-12C Medium Speeds for my Loop. Non LED though. Got Phobya 7mm Shroud/Decouplers for them as well. We'll see how they perform. 62cfm isn't a lot of flow but on a 360 Radiator should work well and keep the racket to a minimum. thumb.gif

Could you do a temp comparison with the shroud (if it's not too much trouble, which it may be with a full loop). I would love to see some screen shots of before and after temps. I used a shroud in my other computer, but alas I also did not do a temp comparison. Just curious....

current temps in my set-up 30C idle,65C max temps prime test @ 1.4V. if i can benefit a 5C drops in temps that would be nice.

Corsair George says Corsair tested push/pull in the lab using an H100 and it made no difference at all. Of course, that's on a bench. In an actual case you may see a few degrees difference, but I don't think it will be major. I was using push/pull on my H100 when I was running a Core 2 Quad at 3.3GHz, but I never did a temp comparison between one set of fans and two (I kick myself for not doing that now).

Currently I'm using an H100 on an i5 2500K and it's working great with one set of fans in "push". Again, I have nothing to compare it to (I cannot fit push/pull and the H100 in my case with the i5 mobo because of how high the RAM is mounted on the board). My 2500K is running at 4.3GHz when loaded with Intel Burn Test, Furmark torturing my two HD69XX video cards and all my case fans cranked up. I'm getting about a 30c idle with a 22c ambient, and a load of about 68c with a 23c ambient. I adjusted the overclock on my system so a full load on the CPU and video cards would keep my temps under 70c which for me is at about 4.3GHz. I hear it's best to keep the i5 below 73c. I only get these temps while torturing the system, and it never approaches those temps while playing games.

If you have room to fit push/pull with an H100 then go for it. If not, don't worry because it will still do a great job cooling with just one set of fans.

Considering the H100 costs about $110, I think most people prefer to keep it unmodded. At that price, if you want different hoses you might as well just purchase a full loop.

That's sort of a catch 22. They're only the best selling because that's what the suppliers stock. If they stock nothing but the cheapest stuff, then of course the cheapest stuff will sell.

Would love to, but my choice of connection kind of makes it difficult...

I'm not saying no, but I have to get 23-25mm M4 screws to accomplish this. My Koolance kits are 25mm before thread. So that leaves me 5mm of space to account for if I don't use the 7mm Shroud/Decoupler. I figger it's worth the $5 for a bag of screws and hexnuts to do the experiment but I won't know when I'll be able to do that. Also the Black Ice GT Stealth has a slight gap between the frame and the fins. I think it's roughly 5mm. I'll know more when it gets here but I can't promise that won't play with the results a bit. thinking.gif

That's nothing really. There were a few people that modded their hunerd dollar H50s' back before I got mine at $90. You'd be surprised what people do with their Hydro Series coolers. smile.gif

Hell, I had my 955 BE not even a week before I lapped it. Of course I ran it for a few days before I did so and used the stock cooler to make sure things were square but that was $170 and I imagine borking that would have a more negative effect than borking an H100 mod. biggrin.gif

Indeedy. A little frustrating. The gaming and modding market dictates alot in terms of what is stocked. Sometimes I just need a spare part to fix someone's home PC and I can't quite rock up at the place with super-bright LED bits.

Still good to have found the standard R4 ball bearing units available albeit only in packs of 4.

I don't think I have pics comparing them. I was fighting and cursing some crazy thick Shin-Etsu at the time. I'll have a look, maybe I have a pic of the old bracket and can take one of the Corsair supplied item.
I think all boards are going to be different and react differently to mounts and mounting pressure.

I had to order my AMD brackets and backplate as the kit was prior to Corsair including it.

awesome, thanks for the pic and for the reply. Ill go ahead and try the backplate that come with my motherboard and see how that does. I think it might also be that the retention screws for the cooler are longer when I tighten them down push up against the motherboard try in my case. Thus flexing the board itself slightly. Think that would be a possibility? Would I be able to go ahead and grind like 1-2mm off the end of the screw?
