[Official] Corsair Hydro Series Club - Page 25

post #241 of 28303
Hello everyone,

Looking to get a H50 and CM690 as part of an upgrade. Which fans would you guys recommend? Should I use it as intake or exhaust? And also, push/pull or just the 1 fan?

Would prefer it if the fans are from here

Thanks a lot,

Quite a bit cheaper then anywhere else at the moment for those interested. A warning incase you didnt notice, this model only includes mounting for LGA775 and 1366.
Just an FYI from a thread I saw pop up today.

If you scroll back a couple of pages Campo, there was a quick discussion on fans. Definetely go push/pull if you can. Personally I would just use a case fan and the Corsair fan in push/pull unless you really want to spend money on performance.

Corsair say set it up as intake so that you get cold air over your radiator - your CPU will be colder but it will heat up the rest of your system a lot, which is bad. The general consensus around here is to set it up as exhaust.

Does anyone know how this cooler compares with a megahalem?
post #244 of 28303
It tends to rank a little below a megahalem, but it gains in other categories - like actually being able to see your motherboard

Most reviews will tell you it's slightly worse than a Mega for pure cooling, that doesent mean its not awesome though.

Thanks mate. I'm thinking of buying a Scythe Ultra Kaze 3000rpm and one of these to control speed. How should I set it up?
