H70 Info needed.

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
So, I've practically decided on getting the H70, just need some more info and I'm placing my order tommorow.

1. Noise: My current stock AMD cooler jumps up to 5200RPM instantly upon sensing even 1C temp rise. It irritates the hell out of me. Can anyone tell me whats the noise level of the Corsair fans that come with it? If bad, which fans would you recommend on using instead?

2. PWM - what is it? How can I control the speed of the pump and two fans without a fan controller?

3. Push - pull, noob question, but how do I know which way air is gonna be blown (aside from turning it on)?

Get 2 Gentle Typhoon 1850s and you will get the same or better performance with lower noise.

1. If you keep the fans on low-speed they shouldn't be all that loud. Fairly quite actually.

2. Allows you to adjust rpm's of the fans.

3. Look at the fins on the fan or the rotation/airflow sketch on the fan itself.

Pwm means a 4 pin power connector for the motherboard.It can be adjusted within your bios or with software,no fan controller needed but you need 4 pin pwm fan headers on your motherboard,like the cpu fan connector.

A dc fan blows opposite direction of a regular house fan.Air flows front to back on a dc fan.

1. Will try. Are they PWM as well?

2. Thanks

3. It was a dumb question, so thanks a lot!

I'm not sure about my MB connectors? I have a Gigabyte GA-870-UD3 rev 2.1 MB, I think that they are 3 pin however :/

It's ok. A 3 pin fan header will provide 100% fan speed. If that's too much noise for you, the H70 comes with 2 fan speed reducers that you plug in line with the fans to reduce them to I believe 50%.

Even with no 4 pin fan header, you still have options.

hmm

stock ones are a tad loud at 2000 rpm, but you get resistors which bring em down to 1600, which is fairly quiet.
but i recommend an after market fan such as gt 1850.

there are options in the bios for hardware monitoring along with fan control. but most after market fans are 3 pin so..

i find that usually the air is towards the the side with the company logo. but yeah, there will be markers on the fans.

1. Using the inline 7V resistors the fans [provided with the H70] are "ok", and their pretty quiet. You can drop them further to 1000RPM's and they are dead silent [this can be achieved via bios ]

2. Forget PWM. The pump needs a 3pin connector to run at full speed at all times, and it's completely silent so no worries there. It must be run at full speed for proper performance too. As for the fans you can always control them via BIOS and lower them. The stock fans are rotationally quiet, however the air flow they kick out creates a wooshy noise as does every fan, if you lower the RPM's to 1000 it becomes truly silent.

3. Usually on the side of the fan [as said before] there is an arrow denoting the airflow direction. Also.. the way I learned it, the open side of the frame means intake [the top of the hub], the back of the fan where the cable is present, the rear of the hub is the exhaust point ^^

imo, get other fans than the stock ones. The stock fans are just "ok" you will get just average performance compared to other fans. Scythe Gentle Typhoons AP15 [1850RPM] are your best option if noise isn't a terrible factor. As it does have a wooshy air noise but no fan rotational noise. If you want absolute silence and don't mind an extra 2-4C rise in temps over the AP15's, the Noiseblocker series are completely silent, and carry a 6 year warranty [yes I'm a NoiseBlocker fanboy, sue me.]

You should be able to control fan speed via percentage within BIOS, I know my brothers 890GPA board can, as can my EVGA 767, so you should be fine

For example, my CMXAF2 [Corsair RMA cooler] is plugged into a 3pin header on my board and is down to 40% speed, dead silent now

Sorry for the uber long post of doom, though, hopefully it's helpful

There is an arrow molded on the fans showing airflow direction.

The fans can be heard but aren't all that loud. That said, Gentle Typhoons are quieter and do a better job of cooling, at least they did for me.

1. Awesome!

2. 1000RPM for me it is.

3. Thanks, got it!

4. The only noiseblockers I have access to are:

NOISEBLOCKER
BlackSilentFan XL1

http://www.itsvet.com/proizvod/noise...cooler/765/848

NOISEBLOCKER
Multiframe S-Series M8-S3 HS

http://www.itsvet.com/proizvod/noise...ooler/791/1129

NOISEBLOCKER
BlackSilent Pro Fan PLPS

http://www.itsvet.com/proizvod/noise...ooler/791/1128

NOISEBLOCKER
Multiframe S-Series M12-S3

http://www.itsvet.com/proizvod/noise...ooler/791/1126

...which of these is any good? IE: SILENT!

5. Awesome uber long post
