big disappointment for me: the H80i won't fit in the Silverstone SG-09.

1. the radiator is wider than the claimed 120mm. I have two other brands' 120mm fans tested in there and they fit with clearance.

2. the radiator is so tall that it has to be mounted with the tubes on top, and even then it's only about 3mm above the graphics card.

3. the radiator+fans are so long when stacked that they almost cover the CPU in that case...the tubes just won't bend enough.

so, it's going back to newegg and I'm getting banged for a restocking fee :/

if anyone can recommend a smaller water cooler I'm open to suggestions.

Well thank you mate! I was about to get this case with an H80i a long the road. Before you send it post some pics so we can see!

Hey, im sure this was discussed somewhere before, but 2153 pages is a bit long to read through. LOL. Honestly, great job making this a strong thread.

My question is, im running an "old" H50 on my i7 920, and just ran into a linus tech tips video on the corsair SP120 fans. They do look pretty good, as seeing as so far I love everything corsair makes, why not give them a try. Im just wondering if anyone on here has already figured out how good or not good they are for the H50 or similar setups?

Currently I have two Antec Tricool fans on full blast (pretty loud) in a push pull config, as well as 5 additional Tricools for intake and exhaust throughout my Antec P182 (moded) case.

Im thinking of getting two SP 120's for my rad, but I was thinking, if I cut the rear of my case out so there is no metal mesh, would the pull fan be better suited as say an air flow series corsair fan since there wouldn't be any resistance on the push side of the fan, or does the resistance on the radiator side of this "exhaust" fan also play into account on the vacuum it would be creating.

Also, what do you guys think are the best fans for the job, right now im running about 35c (very dependant on ambient temp) idle at a 3.82 ghz OC, and max out at about 65c.

I do not have the same cooler but since the Corsair H50 uses a thin rad so I think a single SP120 fan should be enough for the job (I used to have the H60, tested push vs. push/pull and I did not see any temp difference).

As for the best fan...people are probably sick of hearing this but Gentle Typhoon AP-14 or AP-15 to me is really the best out there. I have 4 installed and all I could hear is the sound of the air going through the radiators. thumb.gif

I would get a different case rather than a different cooler

Hello!

So I just received two H70's. one for the GPU and for for the CPU... Unfortunately the brackets don't fit 775 boards anymore. Now I'll have to drill it :-(

That sux frown.gif You now have 3 options. Put 2 or 3 more fans on the front so its pushed towards the card more. Zip tie the rad to the top of the dvd drive cages. Or get some old crap 120. cu out the fans and use them as a mount / extender.
