post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
im getting a h50 and i wanted to attach or place it in front of my nxzt vulcan 200mm side fan since corsiar recommends having fresh air blowing towards the radiator...wanted to ask if this a good idea and any recommendation on how to do it... my other idea was to cut the caseso i can have the radiator on top of the case or side and having 2 120mm fan as push and pull

I wouldn't even try to do that; mounting it would be a pain and you'd be better of with a couple 120mm fans that have higher static pressure.

I'd put it in the rear exhaust (that 200mm fan is going to bring plenty of fresh air in should you configure it as such), but you also have 2x top 120s as well if you wanted to use those.

yea i was planing on mounting it on one of the top 120 mm fans but having air from the case to the outside, i don't really want to push air in from the top because it gets really dusty if i do... the way i was thinking of mounting the radiator in from of the 200 mm fan as by having small metal pipes attached to the side grill and forming a /-\\ like figure and possibly still have two 120mm fans attached to it.....thanks for your reply

bad idea, other then the fact of mounting it on their, the big fans only push air out on the ends of the blades, meaning your rad if you mounted in the middle will get no air

For a radiator, just like a heatsink, you WANT a high static pressure fan. The static pressure is what causes your air to actually flow through the heatsink/radiator.
