Corsair H60 Mounting

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi,

for my new Corsair H60, I'll be using a push-pull setup and put it at the back of my case but my question is the following: Since I will have 2x 120mm intakes + intake from the H60 and only one 140mm exhaust, should I mount it to take air from the outside? I know it's gonna help cooling the CPU even better but what about the other components and the airflow?

Thanks

I think Corsair recommends you use it as an exhaust, that's how I have my H70 setup, either way, you will notice a huge difference in temps with which ever direction you choose, my advice is to do exhaust, since you already have 2 intakes, plus you want the air to flow through your case from front to back....

Actually Corsair recommends that the Push-->Pull be setup as intake. I personally have set it up both way and I saw an increase of 2-3C on my CPU when I had it setup as exhaust... that being said; I have great top exhaust because I am running 2 x 120mm on top of my 650D. My other components (MB, NB) were 1C cooler while running the exhaust setup; for me that is not enough to warrant a 3C increase on my CPU. I have decided to keep mine as intake Hope that helps.

Yes it really helped

But my GTX 570 running 800/1600/2100 at 0.975 volts loads at about 70C while running Kombustor for 10 minutes. Is it a good temp (usually 55C or so while gaming with fan at 70%) and if not would making it an intake make it better and would making it an exhaust make it better. Also I forgot to say that, thanks to Antec's great design, my PSU's 120mm fan also is an exhaust.

Thanks

I would say to just try it both ways in your case and see what gives you better temps.. it only takes a couple of minutes to flip the fans around. Good luck
