How should I setup my HSF Megahalems?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I currently have the Megahalems configured Push/Pull with 2 Cooler Master sickleflow 120x25mm. I have the airflow pointing to the back of my case and out through the exhaust fan on the case.

I want to have optimal cooling with this HSF.

I know that the best bet is to have 120x38mm in Push configuration.

Problem is I have no room to fit a 38mm to PUSH in my current configuration.



QUESTIONS


1. Would I benefit at all by keeping the 25mm in push and adding a 38mm in Pull?

2. Should I change the way its mounted? (If so which way)

3. Would I benefit from ditching the cooler masters and getting better 25mm fans? (If so which ones)

4. Is shrouding beneficial with this setup? (Just seems to me like a huge gap between middle of cooler and fans)

5. Would I benefit from putting either a piece of plastic or metal between the bottom of the exhaust and the bottom of the pull fan?

Like this
lol tried to draw it with ASCII, that was fail here is a sketch.




So that the air go directly into the exhaust fan instead of hitting the back of the case?

I want to start getting over 4.0Ghz on this chip, But I want better temps or the same as I have now. Right now I am sitting idle at 41c on full load 69c.

Everyone wants to run cooler. -_-

Yate Loon D12SH-12 x2 It is

Appreciate your help with that link.

After reading that Mega Thread! I would assume maybe just removing the rear exhaust fan and modding the case to allow the loon to go directly out.
