Oh i do have the rear fans as exhaust always. I just wondered if having the side panel can make a difference or not. I just probably gonna have to order a fan for my northbridge cuz it DOES get hot and it's not copper or i could always order a heatsink the same size as that and replace it.

I have had my H50 stock for about a month now using it as Corsair recommends and just the single fan and even though my case(In-Win Fanqua) is a really well ventilated case it does increase the temps by quite a lot especially for my video cards. I just ordered two Akasa Apache 120mm fans and going to change it to a push/pull and vent it out the back. I hope that will decrease my case temps back to normal and my fans on my video cards won't kick up to high speed.

Hi, I just my 2nd H50 for my secondary rig (100% cruncher/folder), I tried to be a little more creative by mounting it to the top rather then the back of the case.

----------------------

So I go to my local hardware store and they don't have any 6/32" screws longer the 2 inchs, so I got long super long threaded stick and cut the size I needed for this project.




Yes I know, I probably should have cut the grill out for better airflow blah blah blah, but I might want to sell this case in the future and I didn't want to decrease those chances by gutting it.






I'm glad the fan wires were able to squeeze behind the panel without any modding.






And there you have it! now it looks like a chimney poking out the top of my computer.

I just installed my H50 last and not using the push/pull method yet because I havent received the fans that I need.

My idle temp in BIOS went from 26C to 19C. However when I load up my OS, I average 36 at idle which is exactly the same as my idle as my previous set up with a Cooler Master 212.

Why won't my system temp go lower when my OS is loaded?

I had the same problem and did what you are going to do and it is working great, even with it exhausting the push/pull with higher cfm it actually dropped my cpu temps and my case temps are back to normal

then yeah, have a side panel fan because it is going to help in temps and also get another fan on that nb chipset (80mm) or buy a decent nb heatsink from thermalright(fan not included but big heatsink that supports 120mm fan) or thermaltake (fan included decent size)

About the screws needed for the second fan, according to the Corsair Blog with these spesifications: 6-32x1-1/4. Where can I get them? Ive been to a few stores etc, but noone seems to have a clue. Is it something to do with American vs. European standards? Anyone in here from Scandinavia who happens to have a push pull setup who might have an answer to this?
Hello i am from Hommersåk/Sandnes, nice first build.

Check out http://www.industrisalg.no/ i think they are the best shop for nut`s & bolts, i think they supply both metric and inches.

You can also chek out http://www.tingstad.no/default.asp?menu=36&id=

Edit Correcting bad spelling, sorry English is my second Language.

Put a cap nut on top off the tread rods and you vil have a much nicer look.
