You take 2 screws out of the rad from the fan installed, diagonal (top-left bottom-right or top-right bottom-left).

Then, You put them in diagonal ways on the other side for the use of the other fan! Problem solved!

Ps: I did this for my setup.

*rubs her eyes* Damn, it took me a week but I'm FINALLY caught up with this thread all 42 pages worth. And to think I get to look forward to that again with the Antec 300 thread. *sigh*

Time taken to read thru everything aside it was well worth it. I'll detail out my thoughts once I get these replies knocked out...

Have a think about a shroud... they really do make a difference.

Just checked out your rig on the Antec thread... very nice! We too would like that eye-candy here pls

Also, sorry about the "nice work man" thing... Ive amended my original post Aww, now see, your just showing off
*chuckles* No worries and no foul hon.

I'm really giving some serious thought about the shroud but I want to make sure I've actually got my setup nailed as best as I can get it before I start fiddling with things anymore. If that's one thing that was VERY apparent after reading this entire monster thread is that the less changes you do at a single time the easier it is to troubleshoot an issue.

And rest assured I plan on posting more in this and the Antec thread once I'm fully caught up.

I kind of figured that was the case after reading some other people making the switch and remarking on the same thing. Basically, the H50 is designed to allow you to push things a bit while still keeping near air-cooling levels. As I noted to Sethy once I've got everything dialed in running stock then I plan on looking into this dark art some of you like to practice that you call overclocking and hopefully not get into any trouble that will kill my system.

I thought I would put together a specification matrix of the most common / popular fans used by the H50 community here.

This list is by no means exhaustive, Im sure there are fans that I have not listed. It is my intention that this list can be used by members as a ready reckoner and give users an indication of basic spec, so an informed decision can be made based on there system.
Nice work on the spreadsheet! +1 rep for you. ^_^

Back to the drawing board.

Edit: Also normally, a 5.25 inch bay is 5.25 inches wide, not 5.7!
Yeah, I kind of figured my numbers would be off which was why I was hoping someone like yourself would give me a poke about what was wrong with them.

Basically, my goal is to setup something very similar to what you see in these posts:

Xmisery's custom front air intake box
http://www.overclock.net/8396471-post3362.html
http://www.overclock.net/8450945-post3588.html

And then combine with a mount to allow the H50 to be set like this:

EvoLiTiLE's custom Antec 1200 H50 mount
http://www.overclock.net/8452479-post3602.html

This way you get the benefit of pushing the cold air from the front and retaining the thermal dynamics in such a way that you can keep a positive pressure system going and hopefully improve temps as well.

Ideally I'd like to have something like what BlueFox created in his post at http://www.overclock.net/8483588-post3757.html. This way there is a clear route from the front intake fan to the "push" fan on the H50. But I'm honestly not sure who to contact as to how to have such a device made, much less the dimensions for the length to stretch between the two fan mounts, so really it's just an idea.

Kind of one of those things where maybe my brainstorming will trigger an evolution of the idea and maybe see not only how well it works but how it looks. ^_^

------------

After reading thru everything I went ahead and ordered the following from over at FrozenCPU:

Shin-Etsu X23-7783D Silicone Thermal Compound - 1g
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/89...Hdwu&mv_pc=145

Corsair Hydro Series H50 AMD socket AM2 and AM3 Retention Kit (CWCH50-AMDBRKT)
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/10...Hdwu&mv_pc=146

Once I get this stuff in I plan on re-mounting the entire system, maybe even add a shroud if I feel ambitious enough, and hopefully clean things up a bit and see if I get the temps down a bit more. I still have this nagging feeling that it's not quite there yet so until I feel that it is I'm going to continue to tinker with it.

At the very least I'm learning a LOT about this thing and how it works so even if I do not get a temp improvement it was'nt a waste of time. Especially since my hubby does not know I plan on doing the same to his.




BTW, Killhouse was that Shin-Etsu info useful to you at all?

I know that the Arctic Cooling MX-3 specs mention that there is no curing time but from your experiences is this correct?

Does the MX-3 have a curing period? And if yes how long?

I still cant get my i7-860 to operate at 4GHz under 81c.
