I did it with my Sniper and drop over 5C off my CPU temps and 2C off my GPU stress testing. It also works great if you have a rad on the back as as exhaust, the top fans will feed the back rad with nice cool air.

I'm going to give this a shot. Thanks!

Anyone know the CFM rating for the 120mm fan in the rear?

I wanna use it in a push/pull config with the fan that came with my H50.

I remember reading on the forum from CorsairGeorge that its much slower then the stock H50 fan. I would use something with a higher RPM / CFM.

and for the 200MM fans.

RPM = 800
CFM Max = 76
dBA Max = 24

I think it's 1200 RPM. It's pretty weak. CFM i'm not sure of. Random guess: 40-50 CFM.

So you guys wouldn't recommend I use the OEM fan from the 600T and the OEM fan from the H50 in a push/pull configuration? I have an i5 760 and I'm not really planning on overclocking, anytime soon at least.

If you're not going to overclock, then why do you need another fan on your H50?

If you really want something, get a pair of cheap D12SH-12 fan's and call it a day.

If you want it quiet, then I would opt for a pair of cooler master blade master 120 PWM fans. You can set them to adjust RPM based on CPU temps. I use these on my H70.

I swapped out the stock exhaust fan for a Scythe AP-15 1850 RPM and it dropped my CPU at 100% load from 57C to 52C using Noctua cooler.

It's a huge difference.

It's also a huge difference in noise levels, the Scythe GentleTyphoon at 1850 RPM is significantly louder than the stock exhaust fan (at around 1100 RPM i believe).

That being said, some people won't notice the difference, especially of the rear fan is controlled by the fan controller or on a PWM duty cycle in the BIOS.

Thats a huge difference in noise but when your gaming with headsets on its acceptable. I can not wait until the special edition white case to arrive, April seems so far away!!!

So the H50 will perform sufficiently without the push pull setup if I'm not gonna overclock? The H50 requires me to take out the 120mm rear fan that comes with the case, so I thought I might as well put it to use...
