Again I got these because they're PWM fans (Auto RPM). That's part of the reason they cost as much as they do. I've read raving reviews of the regular Gelid UV Wings so I'm sure these will do well.
At least on my Mobo I found it very easy to control chassis fan speed using Speedfan. In Auto mode it can control fan speed based on cpu or core temp. Just connect the GTs to chassis fan connectors or use a Y cable if you don't have enough.

Speaking of these R4's of ours...

I have an old Vantec Nexus Speed Controller...

I think it only supported 3 fans, plus had a forth knob for controlling a noise activated "flicker" on any additional lights added to the case...

It was, one of those "cool" things to have 6 years ago.

Now its just sitting on a shelf, collecting dust.

I'm wondering if it might not be a bad idea to use it with the fans on my H50; presuming I can rig it into my new Storm Scout... or since its so old would it not be powerful enough for them?

Nah I'm liking these Gelid Wing LED PWM's.
I'm often in OSx86 for work, not always Windows, so the Speedfan option won't work for me. They're a tad bit louder than the typhoons, but I won't be running them on full unless I'm gaming. They're also running IBT about 4 degrees cooler than my GT's.

It should work! I'm using a Nexus NXP-201 on my fans. And that's a:

2 Scythe Kaze Jyuni
2 Antec three speed fans (120mm and 140mm)
and the DC San Ace 109p that I use to blow from my H50's radiator. It works wonders, turning it down to 50% before going to bed, setting aside the capacitor buzz that's been common in this particular model.

At least I no longer have to wake up with pierced eardrums.

I just got my Corsair H50, is there any mod you'd recommend to do before I mount it? =)

Use the fans you have on your Megahalems? Probably goes without saying.. XD

Take a look at some of the links on the 1st page. They definitely inspired me!

or

Fluid XP+ Distilled water

Coolant, i guess will be a little like TIM... everyone will have an opinion


distilled water + 2 drops of pt nuke = better choice ? but what about algae ???

PT nuke is a Biocide that kills algae.
