I am gonna be really honest here, Ive read about this push/pull in so many different forums now that I actually made myself believe that I understand what it means. Maybe I do, but then again I have been known to be wrong smile.gif I guess its as simple as one fan pulling the air from inside the case, and the other pushing it out? So if thats correct then yes, thats what I am running LOL!

Actually your idea cracked the case right away, never even thought about modding the exhaust. Brilliant! To avoid ruining the aesthetics of the case, I just might do it from the inside instead, you think that would be a problem?

I want to make a correction, I confused your Noctua NF-P12 fans (static pressure 1.68 mm H2O) with the Noctua NF-F12 (static pressure 2.61 mm H2O/which I've used) yours aren't as high performance, so take that into account for performance upgrades. For comparison the Silverstone Air Penetrator AP121 (Static Pressure: 1.71mm-H2O) statistically aren't so great for "Static Pressure", most useful stat in cooling radiators, but I've heard they work OK? The H80 stock fan's Static Pressure is 7.7mm-H2O@full speed, can be quite loud rolleyes.gif

H80 Push/Pull ... can be setup as "Intake" (pulling fresh air from outside the case) OR "Exhaust" (using slightly warmer air from inside the case). If you cutout the rear case fan grill, it will help in "either" configuration! wink.gif

My setup:

was running h100, and 2x h70s for gpu cooling.

Temps: this was with a single 240 rad, xspc reservoir, and 2 h70s (1cpu,1gpu) in one loop. biggrin.gif


currently running 2 rads (120,240) with no reservoir:

That's pretty cool. It's more of a desktop app than a widget then I suppose. I have five widgets running on my desktop now, and I really like them and their functionality. Personally, I don't think I will be purchasing W8 unless there's some reason that forces me to because I just don't want to lose the widgets. Too bad MS already took most of them down from their site.

But your not alone, I still have made the same mistake a few x's because after a driver change Afterburner can look like it made the update without touching it, not always true redface.gif ... oops, starting to ramble again ...
Now Merg, I know you posted the Accelero Hybrid Graphics Card Cooler link just to fire up the All-in-One vs Custom Loop discussion again? ... Hmmm maybe not? wink.gif ... but seriously if your running SLI your way better off going with a custom loop figuring in the cost of 2 Accelero's @$140 ($169 Newegg) a pop +ship / moddifying room for 2 more less efficient 120mm rads / and occupying 6 slots total of motherboard real estate redface.gif Hmmm ... but then the cost of potentially replacing the VGA blocks every time you upgrade with a custom loop? Yikes $$$! I like the Dwood solution below for $$$/performance biggrin.gif
Especially for a single card ... About 6 mos ago an OCN member, Dwood came up with a custom plate to adapt an H50/H70 etc to a video card (NO more Zip ties!) .. LordXeb brought it up again just a few pages ago and would save anyone with some skills big $$$ even if you don't have an old H50/H70 lying around, I thought you mentioned you had an old H70 somewhere? Even if a friend snagged it, a used H50 $20-$25 (eBay) and H70 $50 (eBay) $75 new / the Dwood custom Logo bracket $20 / your choice of custom fans $$$??? ... you'd probably replace the Accelero 120mm fan or add to it for push/pull? ... AND I don't trust the Accelero "Sone" measurement for sound and would bet that little 80mm memory/VRM fan would get quite loud under load ... All-in-ALL you could save as much as 50% depending on the pump/fans you use (or match the Accelero X-3 air cooler) ... or even MUCH MORE if you already had a pump/fans and we all have extra fans lying around, I think rolleyes.gif
Dwood custom brackets [HERE] Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Accelero Hybrid / Artic Cooling [HERE]
Pretty good "In-House/OCN" review [HERE] ... although his noise meter broke (convienient: no post EDIT?) mad.gif
Nice +R to you for complete info thumb.gif ... "AIDA64 FTW!!!" .... Hmmm +$40, maybe not? rolleyes.gif

Actually, I saw someone posting regarding the brackets for closed loop coolers and gpus, and I thought I would mention the Accelero cooler. I have room in my system to mount 2 x 120mm rads right now, and I have two cards to cool. I will purchase a couple of these in the future if the company that bought out my employer retains my services permanently. I agree that they are a bit pricy, but I like the looks and they appear to be capable of working well. If Corsair made something like this I would already have picked one or two up. I like how they stand behind their products. I would consider a couple of H60s and a couple of those brackets, but I would also have to pick up heatsinks for the memory and/or regulators. I would also have to get a paypal account, and have them shipped across the border. With the Accelero coolers, I can just drop by a local store and pick them up.

I sold off the H70 I had (for half price) to a guy who apparently couldn't figure out how to use it. He actually tried to return it...lol...I asked him if he saw a "Best Buy" sticker on my jacket or something. He claimed it didn't work. I gave him the URLs for all the tests I did and posted the data for on ocn. Told him that while I was willing to help him, it's not my fault if he can't figure out how to use something so simple. Last I heard, he was trying to get Corsair to exchange it (it was under warranty and I gave him my receipt). He was using a V8. I warned him not to expect much performance improvement over that cooler, but he bought it anyway. He didn't even have temperature software installed, and was basing his claim about it not working on how warm his finger was when he touched the block.

I have always found water cooling interesting, but I'm in no need of a system requiring maintenance and expensive little bits and pieces, not to mention (as you pointed out) requiring special blocks for different gpus. Using a closed loop solution, I could sell my cards and purchase different cards and still keep my coolers. It's really too bad Corsair doesn't make something like this. I like the low permeability hoses and five year warranties they have.

With my excelllent skills in paint I have illustrated why I think the Air Penetrators "should?" do a good job. But then again, since I cant see anyone mentioning them anywhere I just wanted an opinion on them. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
a9sLp.jpg?1
I might be wrong, but by putting my hand in front of my exhaust I can feel the air flow spreading out. In my noobopinion the penetrators should do a much better job cooling the radiator, or am I missing something?

I believe the literature available for those fans specifically states they are not for radiators. They are meant to allow air to penetrate further into a case, but are not made to overcome the resistance a radiator would cause. However, I suppose the only way to find out for sure would be to give them a try and see how they perform.

Push pull is just two fans sandwiching a radiator, moving air in the same direction. Intake into the case or exhaust out of the case doesn't matter, as long as they both go in the same direction.

Nice mods.

I just noticed a shiny substance on one of my fans while I was playing bf3. I popped the case door off and low and behold, there was a substance that resembled liquid/coolant on my fan. Wiped it with my finger and it had a greenish tint to it. I wiped it again with a white kleenex to be sure and sure enough it was green. My first thought was coolant, then I started thinking that it could be lubricant from the fans.

Called Corsair and they said it would be 3-5 days. Unacceptable. I need this rig up and going NOW. Called amazon, and they are getting me one shipped asap even though it was over the 30 day period. They said to throw the leaking one away. Here are some pics.

I havent heard of these units leaking, so I have no idea what could be the problem.

Take a Q-Tip and swab it off and smell it. If it has that Ethylene Glycol smell then it's coolant.thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

If not then it's the lubricant from your fans. specool.gif

If the H100 is leaking contact Corsair for RMA. No worries if it is coolant either because Corsair covers damage. thumb.gif

My first thought was coolant, then I started thinking that it could be lubricant from the fans.
Called Corsair and they said it would be 3-5 days. Unacceptable. I need this rig up and going NOW. Called amazon, and they are getting me one shipped asap even though it was over the 30 day period. They said to throw the leaking one away.

Well no manufactured unit is completely immune to failure/leaking! Almost 2 months ago "Qu1ckset" had a similar problem [HERE] and in his pic below it does look different than yours, and it was determined to be excess oil from the fans. But I must admit I see a "slight" green hue in your photo's. And to be honest someone else will have to confirm wether the "Actual Coolant" in an H100 is green as I haven't seen an H80/H100 leak in person redface.gif

ONE THING FOR SURE ... do not throw your old unit away ... RMA it then resell if applicable? wink.gif

thanks for the link.

Corsair confirmed that the coolant is green in hue. It is a mixture which has a greenish tint. I wiped it with the kleenex to be sure. It shows up pretty well. The fans do spin fairly fast so I was thinking about possible lubricant coming out. Im RMAing the faulty unit to corsair and getting a new one. Ill have a extra one for parts or to sell.
