post #9291 of 28251
Okay FINALLY! got my Refund and my Rebates. Same day ironically enough..

So I took my $50 rebate and made my order for my fans and Shin-Etsu TIM.



Tomorrow I put my check in the bank and then on Tuesday I make my system purchases.

Oh and not to be semantical or anything. Razor blade checking is fine. So is using a pocket square. It's not going to make a damn bit of difference microscopically cause you ain't using a microscope and any microscopic gaps will be filled in with TIM. I find it laughable that anyone thinks a razor blade is better than a square(and vice versa) in this regard. You just need a STRAIGHT EDGE to lay on the surface and a flashlight to backlight it. I just happen to have a square so THAT's what I use.

Okay? Nobody is any more right than anyone else on this issue. It's all relative.

from my experience, running it as an intake from the rear drops degrees 2-3C. I was loading at 55C with linpack vs 50-52C with it setup as an intake. Corsair recommends setting it up as an intake too.

a ghetto fab shroud:


i'll look for longer screws later. Mounting the fan right against the grille creates a whistling noise. I have to put a shroud/spacer to eliminate the whistle and reduce turbulence.

Here's my thinking about the placement of the rad:

Intake > Exhaust
If you put it on the rear as intake it may be required to change to case airflow for better results. You can put it on the drive bay though.
Like that, hot air coming from other components like the motherboard never reach the radiator. If you put it as an exhaust on the rear, hot air from these components pass through the radiator.

Just got back.

Because my case doesn't have a mobo cutout I will have to wait until monday to get this in. I only work on my computer when I am alone so that is the soonest I can get it done.

Should I put my extra cm r4 can as a push and the stock as pull or would it be best to have 2 r4's and replace the intake r4 I was using with the stock corsair fan?

Also, what are the specs for the stock fan
post #9298 of 28251
What is the CFM of the CM r4?

My Yates' are 88 cfm(high flows) so I would use a Yate Loon for push and the corsair for pull, if I were to keep the Corsair in place. Cause no way it's 88 CFM rated.

I would think that your CM fan has at or above the Corsair CFM rating though. So I would put the CM fan in push and Corsair in pull. Also if you have a spare fan that is pretty much toast I would gut it and use it as a shroud in between your pusher and the Rad.
