post #181 of 18210
Hey guys this is my first post here. I have this case, and as I am running 2 x 5850s in CF, I think it may benefit me if I look to improve airflow through the case..

Are there any 200mm fans I should look to buy as an improvement? Would I be better off switching the top 200mm fan for two 120s?

Any help would be greatfully received smile.gif

Personally I dont like the 200mm fans that came with the case. And 120mm fans are very common, and come in a lot of varieties. A 200mm fan has more square area than 2x120mm fans, so it should be able to push more air. But there are not very many makers of 200mm fans. And I am not sure if you could mount a thicker 200mm fan( like the NZXT http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835146003 ) up top, but you can on the front.

The 5850s are rear exhaust right, they blow the hot air out the case?? If so, the front fan is more important.

EDIT: after reading the reviews on Newegg, the NZXT may not be the fan you , or I, want. Oh yeah, welcome to OCN

Cool thanks for the help and the welcome smile.gif

I have a H70 also at the moment with the radiator mounted at the back, with the standard Corsair fans pushing/pulling inwards into the case. I was thinking that I may also buy a couple of Gentle Typhoons after reading some of the recommendations round here that they are suitable for a rad.

The 5850s are rear exhaust, correct, but my cards have the XFX custom cooler (http://www.vgadownload.com/ati-graphic-card/xfx-hd-585x-znfv-radeon-hd-5850-1gb-256-bit-ddr5/) so I am guessing they probably don't perform as well cooling wise.

Performance wise they are phenomenal, I max out everything at 1080p in BFBC2 including 16x AF and 8x AA, and it runs at like 70-120fps smoothly all the time.

Temperature wise the top card gets up to about 90'c under load and the bottom card doesn't really go above 55-60.

I'll have a look for a decent 200mm fan for the front when I get the Typhoons then. But you're right, they are certainly a lot rarer!

The corsair fan that comes with the case(rear exhaust), is only a 1k rpm fan. Very quiet, but not much air is moved by it. So some GTs would be good, or you can go PWM like me with the Akasa Viper or Apache fans. Silent when you dont need them, fast when you do, all by their selves(They run off of CPU temp). But for push/pull you would need one of these for multiple PWM fans

Thanks for your help, again! Excuse me for being a n00b, what are PWM fans? Something to do with variable speed/voltage?

They are the "new" variable fans. I am not sure about normal voltage regulation, but my PWM fans go from 600RPM to like 1900RPM. With small increments and are customizable(with software) to what you want.

The only PWM fan header on my MOBO is the CPU fan, which is directed by CPU temp. Your MOBO might have the same thing, since they are both ASUS and current boards.

This is all so you dont have to have a fan controller to get the best of both worlds, performance and silence.

I just received my case today for my new build!! It is aaaaamazingggggg looking lol!

What are the absolute best fans for this case for cooling? I am putting a 980x (will be overclocked to around ~4GHz), 980AX Corsair power supply, 2 SLI GTX 470's, H70 Corsair Water cooler.. etc in this case.

Also do you guys know if the H70 comes with 2 fans (for push - pull config) or do I reuse the stock exhaust fan? It seems like it is pretty weak so I need some good recommendations on fans/cooling for this case .

thanks smile.gif
