So, if you put a weaker fan on as the pull fan, as long as they are not overly mismatched, it will still assist. The fan with the highest static pressure (the delta in this case) should be the push fan. The pull fan doesn't even have to have high static pressure, but a good airflow helps to remove the hot air the push fan is pushing through the rad.
No doubt it's best to match the fans if you can, but I've used mismatched fans myself on an H50 and had no issues at all. Even Corsair George has mentioned same, and he is where I got the information for using the high static pressure fan as the push fan.
I'd have to do those tests myself before I would believe them. Sure, push fans suffer from a backdraft. That's why you need the fan with the best static pressure to be pushing, because it's the best at fighting the back pressure.
Put it this way. If you're just using a push fan on a rad, by itself, it's not going to decrease your performance to add a lower static pressure fan in pull. In fact, the low pressure they create (what there is of it) will be better than the neutral pressure that was there before the fan was added. The CFM of the fan, as long as it's in the same ballpark as the push fan, can only assist in pulling the hot air away from the rad.
I agree with Ceadderman 100% on this issue.
@Ceadderman
Uh, can you explain this please?
"With SP, less is more."
How can less pressure be more? Does less pressure in your kitchen sink faucet push more water or less?
A Corsair stock H100 fan has a static pressure of 7.7mm/H20. That is better than a Corsair H60 fan, which only has a static pressure of 3.2mm/H2O. (both at maximum RPM). Aren't the H60 fans Yate Loons? I think there are different models of Loons as well, and not all of them put out the same pressure.
Please link me to where it says: "Meaning the lower the SP rating the better the performance." because that goes against everything I have ever learned about physics. Higher pressure pushes more air because there is more force (pressure) pushing the air. The best fans can combine high static pressure with high cfm (and likely high noise). Just like more Voltage (electrical pressure) pushes more electrons, more static pressure pushes more air.
The advantage Yate Loons (or AP-15s) have is they have good static pressure at lower RPM, making them a quiet solution for a radiator fan. However, stock H100 fans may outperform the Loons (depending on the model) when both are turned up to full speed because the H100 fans have both a higher static pressure and a higher cfm at full rpm, but are louder. I can only guess as to the actual value of static pressure for the Yate Loons as that number is not actually published anywhere, and we can only go by community testing.
Here is an example:
http://www.overclock.net/t/819736/yate-loon-d12sh-12-round-up-review-56k-no
The best fan in that list is the Sidewinders fan, and it only has a static pressure of 2.99 mm/H20 which is not better than the 3.2mm from the H60 fan, or the 7.7mm of the H100 fans although the performance per noise level would most likely be better on the Loons.

Look at it this way. When you have grossly mismatched fans what's going to happen? Together they are going to reach an equilibrium with the slower fan spinning faster then it's rating and the faster fan spinning slower. To settle this question once and for all I've sent off a message to a professor of electrical engineering for a definitive answer.

And? It may spin faster than it's rating but power usage will remain the same. It certainly wouldn't hurt the fan because it's not limited by a governor the way a Transmission in a car is. I can take an unpowered fan and stack it on a Pusher and it wouldn't do anything but push the other fans blades round. Granted that shouldn't burn out an unpowered fan but it's actually less of a burden on the Pull fan. Not that it would matter much anyway because in Push or Pull the higher speed fan will always drive the speed of the slower one. wink.gif

Well....we'll find out one way or the other when I get an answer back.
post #20363 of 28303
Personally, when I think of mismatched fans: the slower fan acts as another fan grill slowing down air flow. The noise created is very much the same way then.

I can't discredit the shortening of a fan's life when a fan is being pushed or slowed down but I think it's just a theory. For me the air is just resistance. There's always going to be more or less of it. For example a fan pulling air through fan grill and then some dense filter.

Static pressure: Whatever impedes the airflow causes higher pressure and so the higher the pressure there is, the lower the airflow you end up getting. When talking about what the fan's static pressure is... I think we're actually talking about how much it's rated for. So... if you're going to put a fan on the side panel with no grills in the way, you only need a fan rated at a lower static pressure since there's minimal resistance. If you're putting it on a radiator though with so much fins that the air has to flow through and getting slowed down by it, you should use one that rated higher. That's what I understood anyways...

For me, I tend to see it as an air conditioning unit. You need more static pressure if you're going down a longer duct. So if you're using a shroud on just a push, more static pressure helps. If you're putting the fan on front of the case and it has to travel all the way through the drive cages and then to the components, more static pressure helps.

I'm sorry, but I don't think they will. Perhaps if there was no rad. Consider a computer case with case fans. Intake fans may move more or less air than the exhaust fans, but this does not damage the fans in any way.

As I mentioned, the push fan will not achieve it's full CFM because it is blocked by the rad and fighting back pressure (so it's already running a little slower than it should be in free space). If the pull fan is a slower fan, it's not going to be forced to run faster because the push fan is blocked by the rad. I mentioned that, as long as the fans are in the same ballpark, there should be no problem.

Would I recommend matching a 600 RPM fan with a 3000 RPM fan? No, but that's not what we're talking about. Fans like that are not in the same ballpark. However, fans that are within 1000 RPM of each other should have no issues.

I have a computer sitting right beside me now with mismatched fans on an H50 and it's working fine. I know, having read this entire thread, other people are also using mismatched fans with no issues.

As I mentioned, doing this is not going to burn out the fans. I may not be an engineer, but I have taken multiple electronics courses including a two year Engineering Technology course, and I have been working in electronics and computers for 20 years. This is pretty basic physics. That along with the evidence of others also using mismatched fans tells me that the fans will not burn out.

Excellent point. The push fan is already running slower because of the blockage of the rad and the back pressure. That doesn't burn out the push fan.

As for the pull fan, again you're right, The fan could be turned off and another fan used to force its blades to turn. This won't burn out that fan either.

Of course, this could be settled if anyone could provide a single link in the entire history of the Internet showing having two mismatched fans on a cpu cooling rad burned one out. I've never seen such evidence myself.

Anything impeding the flow of the push fan will reduce its speed, including the rad. The airflow will also be less because of the same impediment. Therefor the pull fan does not have to match the push fan.

Just so you know, the fans he's listing are roughly 1900 - 2000 RPM in difference with the delta having almost 3 times the CFM as the other.

In his case, I don't think I would recommend using both fans at full speed. A good fan controller should allow him to more closely match them up. Of course, they're not going to move the same amount of air at the same RPMs since they're different fans. In either case though, I don't think it will burn out any fans.

Just to clarify as I posted the original question, Once I have chosen which overclock I'm going to stick with (I have worked out settings to get stable at 4.5, 4.6, 4.7 & 4.8Ghz), I plan on trying out the different fan configs (as I have a selection of 3 different fan types of which 2 I have matched fans, but the Delta I only have the one which was originally installed in the system by itself). I will then see what give me the best temps.

But since this is my first experience with using the H50 or any watercooling for that matter I wanted to ask some of the experts and experienced users on here what the consequences/effects/drawbacks of using the Delta fan with one of the others might be.

I also plan on trying the fans in both an intake and an exhaust config to see what works out best. I'l be away on holiday for around a week so I may not get to test it out for a little while, but I will report back on my results.

By the way, although I am not using a fan controller the Delta never actually ramps up to full speed even under load. Whilst my temps aren't great they are reasonable and within safe limits for my CPU. We'll see what the different fan configs do for me! thumb.gif

If you already have the Delta. The only cons I see are...

Noise

The tree that gets sucked through your Radiator from the sheer Win! performance of the Delta.

If you don't care about noise then you're last concern is to lock your system up in a winowless room that has plenty of ventilation. thumb.gif

I think that the delta fan is more than adequate by itself on that rad. You are plugging the delta into the CPU_FAN header? Do you have a splitter or something you plan on using? If the fans are more than 1000 RPM apart in maximum RPM, and since the delta is such a nice fan, personally if I was you I'd just stick with the delta. Fans should at least be in the same ballpark if you're going to use them in push/pull. Maybe you should look for a more similar fan if you want to use push/pull?

On the other hand, if you would like a quieter system, you could always pull the Delta and put two of the other fans in (order a second one). This would actually be a nice test of 1 Delta vs two Corsair fans in push/pull. Since the two Corsair fans would match you could use a splitter and plug them both into your CPU_FAN header.

Of course, you mentioned the system hardly ever really revs up the Delta so perhaps it's fine the way it is.

In short, although your temps may be affected by adding such a largely mismatched fan with the Delta, it wouldn't damage anything. At high load/maximum speed, such a mismatch could affect the flow of air through the rad because the Corsair fan may not be able to remove the hot air as fast as the Delta can push it through the rad. In effect acting as a bit of extra blockage. At low load/RPM it may have very little effect.

Just try some of this stuff, do screen shots of your temperatures and post them here so we can see.

Just so you know, the fans he's listing are roughly 1900 - 2000 RPM in difference with the delta having almost 3 times the CFM as the other.

So Bubba, get any answere's yet? More people than you know would like to here what the Prof's opinion would be?
Is he on the "government payroll" or partying with the GSA boys in Vegas or something rolleyes.gif
