post #4601 of 28306
So I have 4 new shiny CM R4s sitting at my house, awaiting installation.

Plan1:

Replace 2 x CM 20RB 38N-F1s (side intake and front intake) with 2 x R4s

Replace 2 x Scythe 2000 UKs in my Push/Pull exhaust config with 2 x R4s

and then

Replace CM 12CB 3BN-F1 with 2 x Scythe 2000 UKs (top exhaust - horizontal placement)

OR

Plan2:

Replace 2 x CM 20RB 38N-F1s (side intake and front intake) with Scythe 2000 UKs (vertical placement)

Replace 2 x Scythe 2000 UKs in my Push/Pull exhaust config with 2 x R4s

Replace CM 12CB 3BN-F1 with 2 x CM R4s (top exhaust - horizontal placement)

Opinions? Suggestions?

This looks like a negative vs positive pressure situation?

I figure the negative pressure by having the UKs in exhaust would be better, putting them as intake will be good to start with but when the dust builds up that will change.

I didnt think of that...

I guess the main question is do I put scythe UKs in horizontal or vertical placement?

Id like the UKs as an exhaust (top horizontal) to rid the case of heat but by the same token, the R4s should be able to do that to...

Seems like apples and pears Which is prettiest?

If your exhaust is too strong (with the UKs on top?) then it may reduce airflow to the radiator, or improve it if you're set up as intake at the moment. Though you're probably not going to notice much difference.

That's a great rad. The reality is that you will see a very small improvement over a dual rad setup. From what I have seen with my temperatures, I'm only getting 2C over a dual rad. So far my pump is still working, I honestly don't know how long this is going to last. It may last forever, it may die tonight. Only time will tell.

Okay, thanks. Ill run with plan 1 and see how it goes.

I did read somewhere that Scythe UKs dont like being placed horizontally (being a sleeved fan)... some people report problems, others report no issues.

Anyone shed light onto this conundrum?

Ah, there is that.

Nothing is simple is it! I wouldnt stress too much over that though, if they make strange whirring noises then put them vertical again

i see. seeing as i'm only cooling an i5 with a 4.0 ghz overclock i think i'll go with the dual.

what difference did you get from the stock single 120mm setup?

Heres another observation / question...

Ive noticed in my setup with paired fans (same model, specs etc) in push/pull exhaust, the push fan runs at 2000 rpm +/- 10% but the pull fan usually runs 100 rpm or so below the push fan.

Normal?

Would it be recommended to put a weaker fan in the pull position or leave them as paired?
post #4610 of 28306
a few questions but first i am going to say that i did not read everything.

1. any ideas on what i might see for temp inprovment over the DuOrb CPU cooler (the pic attached to this post is while typing this and encoding 13 episodes of a show the normal temps are 40-43c system idle.

2. any ideas on how much higher i might be able to get with overclocking my system. i have gotten it up to 3.8 while still being able to play Crysis for over and hour. also here is CPUZ for current info.

CPUZ link for my current overclock config.
http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=1054862


While i was using paint the encoding completed the second pic is of the temps two minutes afterwards.

edit: reason for not reading everything is that it was about 1230AM when i started this post of mine which can been seen in the pics. not going to sit here for hours when i have work at 4 am. the third pic is of the temps as they normally are which occured shortly after posting.
