Antec 902 and the H50. Help needed asap!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
So, my ram came in today, and the 902+Silver Arrow just didnt work out for me. I cant close the side of my case being that its too small. So I have opted for the H50 in this build, and save my Silver Arrow for the build in the HAF X in the near future.

I just need some help understanding how to do a Push/Pull config.

Also, can someone reccomend some fans that are quiet, but give out some good performance while in push/pull?

Thanks guys. I am hoping for some fast answers so I can get my build under way once again

Gentle Typhoon AP 15s are quiet and powerful. The silverarrow will fit if you remove the plastic side fan holding on the 902. As for push pull, you want one fan pulling fresh air from the back of the case into the rad and one fan pulling air from the rad into the rest of the case. This works well for your 902 beacuse you have a 200mm big boy up top. ENJOY!

The side fan is not even on. I am talking about the actual Silver Arrow fans hit the side of my case because one sits on top of my ram, and the other one sits on top of the nut that puts the Heatsink to the CPU. I just watched the installation video made by Corsair. So that made it quite easier to do.

So its Fan-> Rad -> Fan with the air flow being the arrows right?

How long does one wait for the TIM to heal before I can actually turn on my PC and mess with it?

Exactly, set it up like this.



The TIM needs the cpu on to actually settle, since it needs to heat up. Just start up your computer!

My heart almost stopped for a second there. At first I thought you were saying that the H50 didn't fit inside an Antec 902. I have a 902 coming tomorrow for a customer build along with an H70 and for a second I didn't think it was going to fit.

LOL! No, I am saying I had trouble with my Silver Arrow in this case. I need a new case

Yeah, I saw that on the Corsair site. I am going to do this tonight.

Interesting....I had a Antec 900, which I thought is pretty much the same as the Antec 902. I was able to fit a silver arrow with two fans nice and easy inside there. I had to remove the plastic on the side panel that holds a 120mm fan. What I actually did is take that plastic piece and installed it outside so the 120mm fan can be installed outside. I will take a pic and show if interested. But regardless, I had no issue fitting a silver arrow in there.

Pictures will be awesome. When I installed my Silver Arrow in my 902, the fans would not allow me to close my side door, so I opted for the H50 in this build.

The middle fan would be sitting on the big nut that holds the heat sink to the CPU, and then the second fan would sit on top of my ram. I can bypass the big nut by seating the nut between the fan. But the fan sitting over the ram I had now way to bypass it.



This was my middle fan, if I moved it so the nut sat between the fan, it worked out.
