No, I havent spliced the P/P fan wires.

Having said that, I have spliced some of my other case fans.

I have the pull fan going to the CPU fan header and the push goes to another 12v fan header.

Alternatively, you can use a fan controller / molex fan connector to power them.

Also,

You can use this link to add your system specs.

Can you clarify which is being fed through the CPU_fan and the reasoning?

Thanks and thanks for the heads up on the sys specs. Will fill out.

I have the pull fan going to the CPU fan header and the push goes to another 12v fan header. <sorry, I just noted my error>

Reason is so I can monitor speeds through speedfan. If you do this, you need to disable the CPU fan smart / auto option in BIOS to keep the fan at max speed.

Thanks, Seth.

This is kind of annoying. I just replaced the H50 fan (push / exhaust) with two Enermax Marathon fans in push / pull and I'm not seeing any temp improvements. Actually it got worst haha.

Push

Core 0 - 66
Core 1 - 65
Core 2 - 64
Core 3 - 60

Push / Pull

Core 0 - 68
Core 1 - 68
Core 2 - 66
Core 3 - 62

I know the Akasa fan Corsair includes pushes 50 cfm and the Enermax, although quieter, pushes 40 cfm but I'd expect at least some improvement - certainly not deterioration.

I'm cooling an i7 920 stock speed.

I have a similar setup as you, curious where did you plug the pump into?

Try intake and see what kind of temps you get. Im hoping that these temps are all with prime95 going right?
Also what are your ambient temps inside of your case?

The R4 is rated at 90 CFM, I think the one model on CM's website is marked wrong. All the packaging says 90 too. Also, the noise is 32dba at 2000RPM (well I'll be damned if I can get 2k, mine mostly read about 1850). They also have quite a big range, I run mine comfortably at 800RPM (35% PWM). They are pretty silent up to about 1200-1400RPM which is good for pressure.

The Corsair fan also goes down to 600RPM @ 35% PWM.

You might want to add a static pressure and price column too (maybe a power rating too).

Into a fan header (as opposed to directly to a molex).

Yes, these are under Prime95 In-place large FFTs. System temp is about 29.

I will try intake just out of curiosity but I don't think I'd ever leave it at that. I suspect it might have something to do with the Enermax vs the Akasa fans. Having brought everything back to the way it was, I notice the Akasas are spinning at 1300 rpm (no load) while the Enermax barely topped out at 980. The cfm difference might be whats wrong.

At 3.0 GHz on an i7 920 my load temps are 56-50C between all cores, running prime 95 for a few hours. I got some no-name fans off of a hardware store and they work like a charm too. Anyways, for me intake has lower ambient temps in the case because my i7 runs relatively cool at around 36-31c idle, and sucking in cold outside air seems to be benefiting other components. As strange as it sounds, its working great, even though it sounds like somewhat of a counterproductive measure.

ive got an H50 to!!! its pretty sweet

my computers fan setup is like this:

2 fans on top suckin air out
1 in back sucking air into H50 another on the other side sucking air through so basically 1 fan pulling air into h50 and another sucking air out of it i guess
1 on bottom sucking air out
1 on side sucking air out
1 in front sucking air in

the first fan sucking air into the H50 is plugged into a molex thing
the fan on the other side of the H50 is plugged into CPU fan
the pump is plugged into pwr fan

heres pics






do you think its setup good?
