Thanks, I guess it's time to upgrade again.

That's a picture of my rig, and the lighted memory fan is actually a Kingston HyperX Fan, and I've linked to the current place to get it at low price.


I just noticed this picture and qustion because I've recently added a second GPU in CrossFire, and have now joined others in having heat problems. So I'm going back through this thread to find some ideas for 120mm, strong but not too loud, fans. I have a quiet Scythe S-Flex SFF21E on the mesh screen over the GPU's now. It's quiet, but too weak. I want a higher CFM on the screen, and another to replace the rear Corsair exhaust fan. Something in the range of 60CFM I think.

I don't really want louder fans than I have now, but when I run games, the top GPU fan is hitting 85% speed so I can't hear the case fans anyway.

Hi, mikeyo...

Looking at your pics, I saw that you mount 2 pcs of 120mm fan on the front as a replacement to stock 200mm fan.

1. How do you mount it? Use a velcro or drill new hole?
2. What is the brand of the fan? Is it better compare to GT AP-15? 'cos I had 2 of them as spare.

PS: Mergatroid share his experienced about 2 page before that 25mm thick fan will not mount in the front while the HDD cage mount behind it, so he did a little mod on the HDD cage.

Thx..

denydog i really love your rig, it's beautiful. also if you do find good solutions to heating problems would you mind reposting your thoughts/summaries? i would love to learn more.

do you happen to have a build thread?

any chance you could post more pictures/video? i would love to see more detailed pictures of your rig

Really appreciate your feedback.

PS: I mentioned Gentle Typhoon because I'm ordering them right now (5 AP-15) but if your suggestion suit this positive-pressure-wannabe, I can still make a change to the order, and switch the AP-15 into lower speed (AP-13 or AP-14). Thx...
If you use an aftermarket fan controller, you can set the RPMs to achieve any type of pressure you desire.

This actually gives me an idea. (excuse me if you get a burning smell) I would like to try an experiment whereby a separate fan controller was used so you can vary each fan individually. IF all the fans you are controlling have a lower power draw than what the built-in stock fan controller can handle, you could plug the the aftermarket controller into the stock controller and use the big knob on the top as a "master control" for all the fans. That way you could keep your positive pressure all the time while varying the air flow through the case. This would likely work best on a nice simple manual fan controller like this one:

http://www.memoryexpress.com/Product...9%28ME%29.aspx

It looks like it wouldn't use much power over what the fans would draw. If you're only using 3 or 4 fairly low power fans I think this would work great. However, if your fans pull a lot of juice this might kill the stock fan controller.

Anyways, sorry for that. I would pick an after market fan controller if I was you and use it to control the pressure in the case. Don't forget that a dust filter will cut down on your air flow.

I am using my H70 as exhaust for two reasons. 1. It does not pull outside dust in through the H70 and 2. I have video cards that exhaust out the back so I'm not pulling hot video card exhaust through my H70.

The other two fans in the rear are also exhaust. All of them are connected to an aftermarket fan controller except the H70 fans, which are connected to the CPU header. (I used PWM fans for my H70 and a PWM fan splitter).

Without a fan controller, the only way to make sure you have positive pressure is to try and calculate the air pressures based on the fan specs. This would not be entirely accurate due to the dust filters, mesh and grills. With a fan controller you can experiment on which RPMs for which fans achieve your desired result.

Hey, that's great to hear. Glad you got that figured out. That's what I went for with the PWM splitter and fans for my H70. I absolutely love the automatic control.

I love having these guys a few blocks from me.

Here's the fan testing thread again for everyone asking about 120mm fans:

http://www.overclock.net/water-cooli...ng-thread.html

CeaserNYC, after I eat I'm going to try your fan mounting idea (now that my basement is dry). I will report my findings later tongiht

patti88, appreciate the comments, and I will find cooling solutions, just a matter of how loud and how much I've got to spend.

I don't have a build thread as such, but I'll put together some details and pics for you.

BTW- Could you add your current system specs to your control panel so we have a point of reference in your posts?

Good luck with your future build.
Sadly I am not a fan of the H80. I hate the fact that some idiot at Corsair got the bright idea to put the fan controller for the H80 right on the cooler. Why the hell would I want to open my case every time I wanted to change the fan speed? Really stupid move on Corsair's part. So now I need to find a new cooler to buy.

Hi Mergatroid, you've such a saviour for this noob over here..

The idea of positive-pressure is the intake fans MUST be in higher speed than the exhaust right? CMIIW... Means, I need to set all my fans using fan controller (I have Lamptron FC 5 v2) to meet the calculation.

I'm planning to experiment with the H60 mounting between exhaust and intake with push-pull setting. I'll make arrangement for the front fan using NZXT as you did for intake. Also I got a nice advice from ehume to use the space in the 5.25" bay by mounting a 120mm/140mm as intake also.

What do you suggest of the top fan? Should I use 2x120mm fan as exhaust or intake?

PS: This plan made my friend keep begging to trade his Silverstone FT02 with my 600T .. LOL .. What do you think? Is it worth it?

Hi, I'm the idiot.

The button on the pump unit is a bit different from a fan controller though. It sets a profile, and I figured that most people would find the profile they liked and stick with it. The profiles aren't a static fan speed like a fan controller would set, they're a range of fan speeds based on internal coolant temps.

Low - 900 RPM to 1300 RPM
Mid - 1300 RPM to 2000 RPM
High - 1600 RPM to 2600 RPM

If you want, you can use a standard aftermarket fan controller (like those built into some of our cases) and no harm, no foul. But if you think the idea was stupid, I'll take the blame.
