Hey, welcome to OCN!

And desktop computers I guess!

Your best bet, for efficiency/simplicity under $100, would be an H50 with Gentle Typhoons in a push/pull configuration I believe. If noise isn't a factor you could get a Noctura and some Ultra Kaze 3k rpms as well.
Puny Power!

Thanks for the warm welcome. I've lurked these forums over the past few months in anticipation to building my PC.
Just did a quick youtube of those fans and they're a tad too loud of my liking. Would the H50 Be my best bet? I've read that under full loads (My PC runs at 100% PCU for around 18 hours a day) that the H70 is far superior. Are there problems with mounting the H70 in this case? Would implenenting an extra fan as others have with the H50 be a route around the short cables?

From the reviews I remember reading (albiet, it was awhile ago), the H70 was superior to the H50, however for the extra $ it was not worth it. Especially if you take the savings and put it into superb fans on the H50 as I suggested.

The Gentle typhoons are the quietest / best db to cfm & static pressure ratio's available I'm fairly sure. If the 1850 rpm's are too loud they have 1300's as well I believe.

I don't quite follow your extra fan/route around question

@Henry:

Welcome!

Is that WD Green your primary hard drive? You'd see a nice boost in application load times and general responsiveness with a faster hard drive or SSD to compliment the rest of your system, which is otherwise fairly powerful.

Thanks for the welcome. The WD Green is indeed my primary hard drive. Would an SSD effect the performance of Multi-Threaded Java programs? I'm not too bothered about the speed of application load times (though I now plan to get an SSD in the future) but would it effect my Java programs at all?

Ruckol1 - I've read about the CNPS Extreme outcompeting the H50.

Would I be able to squeeze 0.1ghz or more from a H70 than H50?

Edit: Would getting a 80/92mm to 120mm adapter and mounting a rear 120mm fan change my temps by 1-2c?

Got my Vulcan the other day, waiting to get some cash to buy my new mobo (ASUS RAMPAGE III GENE). Thought about painting the case white sort of like this:

Well, after all that work, my Mobo bricked on a BIOS update. Trying all kinds of suggestions from everywhere I can look and still can't get it to finish booting. Hangs right after a good post. Can't enter BIOS. BIOS recovery doesn't work. grrrr. I wanted to play with this thing until the replacements were available!

That's damn neat.

Also, the Vulcan's cooling has proven to be Insane!
My config;

Removed HDD Bay - HDD now located in 3.5" bay under optical drives.
$3 Cheap 120mm fan frontal intake
2x NZXT 120mm fan top exhausts
Stock AMD CPU Cooler

1100T Overclocked to 3.6GHZ is running at 44c with a MAX LOAD.
Ambients aren't anything abnormal - unsure of exact measures but I'm not in an igloo. Heating's on and I'm packing sweat.

Decided to go for the h70 for cooling with 2x Sythe fans. Will keep updated on progress/fitting.
