Another CPU Cooler question - Page 2

post #11 of 12
As another H70 user in love with the unit I wanted to encourage you to stick with your current unit. Sure, there are other monster air coolers out there- but take your case real estate back and keep the H70 there. A couple of things that might help- I'm not sure if you're exhausting with the H70 or using it as an intake. Most recommend using it as an intake, and I do as well.

Also, not sure what paste you're using- but that's a place I might want to investigate.

Furthermore... you need a pretty decent amount of pressure to push through that rad- those fins are pretty uneven... it's not like those perfectly level fins in a normal air cooler. Some are knurled... pinched. Argh! But with pressure comes cooling salvation!

I moved up to a Ultra Kaze 2000rpm 38mm fan- and I have to say it's been awesome... but a wee bit on the louder side than what I was anticipating. At 36db it's not exactly a trumpet but you'll know it's there. The 38mm maintains a very high CFM- but the important aspect is that increased pressure at which it is delivered. A push pull through that rad with the 38s will quench your cooling thirst.

You'll need to get some new screws to accommodate the thicker fans- but for the couple bucks at any hardware store you're good.

Well if possible I would love to stick to my h70. Simply because to safe the money and room in my case.

I use two GTs AP15 as intake. As thermal paste I use mx-2. It might not have been applied correctly the last time. Will have to reapply it to see about that.

I actually own two Ultra Kaze 3k. but they're far to loud for me.
And I heard that the GTs are better then the kazes. Meant if you put both fans at around 1700rpm.

Do you think it would give me a better result if I move up from mx-2 to mx-4 ?
