I have a CM Storm sniper.. this makes me sad..
Are you able to mount 1 fan outside the case? Some people have mounted the fan with shroud on the outside and one set on the inside.

I have a really nub question to ask, and I'm going to post it here so that in a few days time it will be buried in this thread so people might forget how nubby I am!

So...question is...when installing a fan how do you know which direction to install it? For example if I wanted to install an intake which way would I face the fan? I know on one side of the fan is just the manufacturer logo and on the other side is the fan specs and what not.

Usually there is some indicator on the side of the fan that says AirFlow or Flow with an arrow. Or just power it up and see which direction it flows. Usually but no in all cases if you are looking at the front of the fan that may have a logo or some sort in the middle that is usually the intake so it pushes fan out the back. but that is not always the case, just what I have seen on my fans.

hey bro...you can check your stock corsair fan and in the middle on 1 side of the fan has arrows. It will show ^> or <^

Thanks guys, I'll just plug it into my motherboard and fire up the ole PC to double check then if it's not indicated.

Replacing pretty much all my stock case fans and then doing what was mentioned here a few posts back...140mm to 120mm fan adapter and sticking and top mounting the rad.

I received the 220 Asetek version of the H-50 but it came with no instructions with it, the pump and circuit board looks just like the H-50 with the cover pulled back but it has a 3 pin Fan connector and a 4 pin Molex connector.
I would like to remove the Molex connector but I am not sure if I need this plug, both plugs go to different points on the top of the circuit board, the Molex connector is clearly marked on the circuit board power and ground while the 3 pin fan connector isn’t marked. The 3 pin connector is in the same place on the circuit board as the H-50 is. I found a picture from one of the mods in this forum to show what I am talking about, any advice would be welcomed.

Try plugging each one in at a time, if it runs both times then they are doing the same thing and you can cut the molex off. I would suggest leaving a slight tail on the connection so you can rewire it if necessary.

I'm pretty sure that they will both be doing the same thing unless the 3-pin connector is just an RPM monitor.

If you are looking at the fan, and you can see the center hub without mount to the frame, the fan blows towards you. And vice versa, if you are facing the fan towards you, and you can see the mounting frame, the fan is blowing air away from you.
