Since this is your only fan for cooling your rad, you will want something that can push the air through and have high static pressure. Im not convinced this fan will cut it for long durations at load.

There is a guy on this thread called ccomputertek. He appears to be up on all things to do with fans... Id suggest you PM him and ask his opinion.

Hope this helps.

Sethy666 keeping on top of things as always

There are some great guides around for fan choices on radiators, but essentially you're looking for high static pressure fans.

Seeing some impressive photos and temperatures around, sorry I dont have time to go through them all right now.

+++ rep to Skorpio though, fantastic job, love what you've done. I'm going to permalink your post to the front page.

Some helpful hints:

RPM = CFM = static pressure, they all go togeather, you can't not have one and expect the other.

Also I been reading in other places that for AMD owners at least, with the brackets you need to order from Corsair for the OEM boxed version of the H50, you don't even need to change the backplate, just use the one that comes on your motherboard from the factory.Doing it this way is supposed to have better contact with CPU and cold plate, because the little legs are a bit shorter than the back plate that Corsair ships to you with the AMD bracket kit.The screw thread and everything else is identicle to the stock backplate on the motherboards supposidly, people say they did it with no problems, motherboard still has to be removed though, because when you take the screws out of the AM3 retention bracket, the backplate then comes loose.

The plastic bracket that you have to order if you did not get AM3 brackets, is alot better than the new metal ones.

So Corsair did not put these brackets in the box because they were not happy with what they currently had ( the plastic I guess ) but now that everyone saw the buff heavy duty high strengh plastic ones, they don't want the metal ones, they hate the metal brackets............. what a MESS ! ! ! !

Hopefully when you go to Corsair to order brackets, you can still get the older style plastic and they won''t send the new metal ones.....

Soooooo take off your stock backplate and match it up to the one Corsair gives you, if it's the same and the legs appear a smidge shorter, use that then, because with the plastic bracket and spring loaded, much better fit.... while not compressing too much, but much better than the metal brackets.

That is all...........

Careful, lots of fans have very high CFM/RPM ratio but have very low static pressure. The scythe slipstreams for example, have very high CFM but are very weak on heatsinks or radiators due to their low static pressure. The Noctua NF-P12 on the other hand, has low CFM/RPM ratio (and also low CFM) but is significantly better for static pressure.

I was only thinking about the fans everyone agrees are the best, like Panasonic Panaflo's and Sanyo San ace's...... I don't know anything about the cheaper fans, I never even look at those or consider things like coolermaster fans or Noctua, even though some might think their ok to use.

There is only 2 brands of fans I look at, and for those at lease RPM = CFM = static pressure, they all go togeather, you can't not have one and expect the other ..... will hold truth.

these brands don't have different models with different narrower fans blades, they pretty much use the same fan blades across their models, only varience is RPM across the different model #'s

I disagree, to a certain extent it holds true simply because really high CFM is generated by a more powerful fan, and a more powerful fan will have high static pressure. But even the really high power fans have huge variations in static pressure because of their fin design.

I agree though, that the panaflos and sanyo san aces are great fans. Though any 38mm fan is innately going to have high static pressure.

The panaflo's use the same high pitch blades across all their models and all have a great static pressure ratio, just the fan speed / CFM and static pressure vary across the models, not the blade pitch, which is proven.

San ace also sticks with a proven blade pitch, the only difference across the model are the motor speed = CFM and static pressure.....

But for given RPM they still have proven static pressure compared to other cheaper brands.they don't make 3 blade or narrow blade or any other silly combo across their different models.

Yes, but between the companies there are differences in CFM/Static pressure ratio. Simply because 2 fans (from different companies) have the same CFM doesent mean theyre going to have the same static pressure. Looking for high CFM fans is a good way to find powerful fans and will lead you to a higher static pressure, but does not necessarily mean that every fan with a high CFM has a high static pressure. With the fans that you mentioned it is the case that their static pressure is high, but it doesent scale with their CFM values.

RPM =/=> CFM =/=> Static pressure, BUT it is a good guideline.
I hope that cleared things up.

Fair enough, I have learned nothing though and I never needed things cleared up.We only buy the best fans here, we don't second guess..

If you know of a fan that puts out enough static pressure @ 800 RPM, then point me in that direction, if you want to help.There is no fan that will put out @ low RPM, is basically what i'm saying to these guys who ask can I run my fan low @ 800 RPM and will it keep my CPU cool enough...... No it will not, at least not with the setup we're discussing here.

even panaflo or san ace will not be suffient @ 800 RPM while gaming.
