However, the airflow really puzzles me because i have a antec 1200 and i still wanna be able to use my rear fan on the bottom. Would i just mount the rad on it and not use the other fan or USE BOTH? I really am deciding hard if i should go out to Best Buy and get it lol. Still unsure.. just borderline decision here because i bet the temps may be a bit same as my air cooled or maybe i would be wrong and it's lower?.. Man i have no idea.
it would be a bit lower....especially on load temps if u dont wana mount it on the fan in the rear, see my rad in 5.25 bays link

Are you kidding me? I'd perfer exhaust dude, so i can draw heat out more. If i put it in front of my intakes since i have 3 fans on my 1200 i'm gonna get dust build up, no thanks! I'm just trying to decide if i need 2 fans to pull in the air from the rad fan to my rear fan as exhaust, might need extra screws then again i might just use my rear fan as a exhaust for it. I'm still unsure if i should go down there and buy it lol.

The front fans are filtered though?

Hey guys, got my new computer parts a few weeks ago with the H50 of course..
Ive read most of this thread before registering and havent come across a question about joining two PWM fans into one thingy and plugging it into the CPU_FAN header.. (of course exluding the RPM sensor)

Think it would supply enough juice for both fans.. and could anything go wrong? Its the stock corsair and a Scythe kama PWM

Pics will follow if u want once my RAM returns from RMA

EDIT: Of course for sandwiching the rad

90cfm R4's will perform better but the Sflex will be close behind. Build quality goes to the Sflex. Best build quality is on the Gentle Typhoons.

Just get it! You can thank me later.
Try using it as exhaust on the rear with the stock H50 fan pushing through the rad, and put the rear exhaust fan (stock fan) on the bottom as intake. If you want more performance down the road, you can go push/pull and get better fans.

Hi willhemmens^^ , ambient temp always 21-22, the problem is that even if i have a silverstone mini case i sincerely wanna drop temperatures >< , and was thinking about a res on the bottom of the case, btw i ordered it today the aquacooling one, i just hope putting it on the bottom of the case won't be a problem, but i saw many people doing it on the forum (the watercooling one here)

btw the question i made is on page 492 the first post if you didn't see it plz

Shouldnt be too bad, you will just have too fill the loop out side the case.

21-22 is quite warm, im normally like 15-16'c but i like it cold.

I agree but would also add that the S Flex is noticeably quieter. I would guess the temp difference between the two to be almost negligable (i.e. perhaps 1 degree or less).

There is another option which I use - Akasa PWM splitter - draws the power from PSU (molex) and give juice up to 3 PWM fans + gives you feedback loop into the mobo for control.
IMO best solution as doesn't draw any juice from mobo and gives option to control...

Hmm pretty much looks like a win/win situation for me! Although I hoped I could avoid more shopping

how would that work with non-identical fans though? different RPM readings and all
