Hi guys.

Using the H50 in my Lancool K62 gives me a bit of space for the push/pull arrangement, how about this fan 38mm deep..(still with Corsair single stock atm)

Silenx Ixtrema pro 120x120x38 mm 90cfm 18db fan

which could be mounted on the case rear, then radiator then another fan, (flowing in or out depending on heat temps) maybe from same brand but 25mm version?

I was advised here in the forum that its the 'cfm' value that has to be good to push air through the radiator and help reduce overall temps. There is probably enough space for a 2nd 38mm fan in push/pull, but am looking for advice.. (have learned more about fans than anything else since getting the H50 and my new PC

Idle normal room temp average..38
Warm room ..40
OCCT Stress Test @ 100% - mid 80s (its this I would like to lower somewhat, yes I know i7 930 oc can run hot, but every little helps longevity)
vcore 1.34

Cheers.

I gave up on the silenX fans after dropping ~$120 on a handful of their 120mm case fans, only to have them make way too much noise and fail on me. I think out of the five I ordered, only one of them made it a year, and they were too loud to be used in my case without running them with a shroud.

Ha ha nice! I am actually going for a simplistic look with my Scout, so I am foregoing the fan controller and might be picking up quiet yet decent 140mm CFM fans. I am currently running the Kaze 5.25" fan controller with 1900 RPM S-Flex 120mm Scythe fans, but I run them at ~1300 24/7 on my current Megahalem. So I was looking at just picking up some 1200 RPM fans which can run full speed, or using the fan controller to each fan header via my R2E motherboard, I can set them to 50%, 60%, 70%, 80%, 90% or 100% fan speed. So I might also pick up some 1700 - 1900 140mm fans and go that route.

Here are the fans I am looking at:

XIGMATEK XLF Series XLF-F1455 140mm:: 1000RPM, 63.5 CFM with <16 dBA (I don't know if I believe those ratings)
Noiseblocker NB-BlackSilentPro PK-2:: 1200RPM, 54.73 CFM with 20 dBA
Noiseblocker NB-BlackSilentPro PK-3:: 1700RPM, 90.04 CFM with 27 dBA
Scythe Kaze Maru 2:: 1200RPM, 65.2 CFM with 23.2 dBA
Scythe Kaze Maru 2:: 1700RPM, 92.40 CFM with 36.4 dBA

Again, the high speed fans would be using the bios selectable fan speed control set to like ~70%.

So I tried to clean my H50 and took off the block and all this fluid fell out so I killed it! so anyways I put my old Zalman CNPS10X on my processor and put 1.312V into it and my load for Intel Burn Test is 65c! compared to my H50 with the volts at 1.21 with 70c Load!

Thanks for the comments,

I had a look at the provided link provided by ChosenLord, the db levels seem high, I suppose its the compromise of cfm/db, but the Silenx Ixtrema pro 120x120x38 mm fan I quoted do not seem to be reliable, just thought the stats were good for them.

I also looked at the Scythe 38mm 120 which provide good cfm/reasonable db levels..

Its like looking for the holy grail..of fans, and its exhausting (scuse the pun)

Fan choice can be stressful, sooo many to choose from.

Hey Magus,

Get yourself some rubbing alcohol or what I use, some alco-wipes (non lint type). Alco wipes are the little swabs a doctor uses to swab your skin before an injection.

You should be able to pick so up at a chemist (drug store). They usually come in boxes of 100 and two or three swabs usually does the trick. be sure to get the lint free ones.

Just wipe the old TIM off, leave it to air dry - the alcohol should evaporate fairly quickly. Repeat the process if there is any residue.

Good to go

See pic <enc>

Im using dual Scythe Ultra Kaze 2000 38mm in push / pull (intake). The noise doesnt seem to be an issue and they are doing a great job.
