H70 on Q6600

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi folks... I recently bought a Corsair H70 to replace my CoolerMaster Tx3 that wasn't doing the job. When I first installed my H70 into my Antec 900 case... I left the front case fan blowing in, and I placed the H70 with 1 fan pulling from outside the case and one blowing into the rad. Also there is my 200mm top fan.

After trying to OC my Q6600 to 3.2... I got really high temp (70*C even if my rev version is B3 tongue.gif) So I didn't OC for a week... then I tried to turn backward all my fans... shooting hot rad air into the case... but that is evacuated on top with the 200mm fan and the rest get pull by both front 120mm... and you won't beleive tongue.gif The temps doesn't get over 60*C! so H70 work great...

But I still think it's stange to blow hot ait into the case?

So ... this post is about what you think about that?...

Whats more important to a rad is cool air.
Pulling cool air over the rad is going to be cooler than taking the hot air from the case and pulling through the rad.
This is why I have my rad fans on the top of my case pulling into the case. The air in the room is always cooler than the air in the case.
