Mounting H50 in HAF 932

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I recently purchased a H50 and I took one of my blademasters from my 212+ as the pull fan.

At the moment I have the the Fan>Rad>Fan mounted on the back exhaust fan spot on the 932 with the Fans going as Intake ---> rad --->.

I was curious if I should maybe mount the fan in a different location because I was getting some fairly high temps (around 52c with my 955BE OC'd to 3.6Ghz).

I was thinking maybe moving the rad to the above the dvd drive and trying to mount it in the drive bay, or maybe in front of the giant top fan but air flow might be limited. Hmm, just trying to figure out what the best possible setup would be for an H50 with a HAF 932.

Try changing the fans to exhaust.

Try reversing the fans by making it exhaust instead of intake.

Really exhaust? I may give that a go tommrow, but wouldn't that just be pushing hot air through it?

Also, would it be smart to have the higher RPM doing the push?

I get best temps with my 932 with the top fan flipped over to make it an intake, front with dryer sheet filter stays an intake, and rear is exhaust.

When you say rear exhaust do you mean the rad?

Just as the case exhaust in general. so yes put your rad in that spot with fans drawing air from inside your case through it and out the back.

Others might not agree with me on this but try flipping the large fan on top of the case to be an intake instead of exhaust.
