Don't use it as an extra fan. If you want to improve your cooling a little (very little really, one or two c) then gut one fan (remove the blades and hub) and use it as a shroud on the "push" side between the fan and the cooler. There's no point adding a third fan to an H80 push/pull setup.

Or any AMD processor for that matter. I have read mixed opinions on this but I am currently at 46C load and stable folding among other things and they advise the temp max on a BE965 should be 62C. My Vcore is currently at 1.600V and they suggest air cooling should stop at 1.550V. If I have so much room in temps with H80 as my water cooler do i have that much room left on my Vcore? Anyone?
I don't think you could cause any problems to your H80 (other than the hole) by increasing the voltage on your CPU. You're overclock will fail long before there's any H80 related damage. (long long before) (no, really, I mean LLLOOONNNGGG before) Just remember that the hotter it gets, the more the water in the cooler will expand. Since you have a hole in one of your hoses it's possible the pressure may be enough to rupture your electrical tape fix.

I would use my gentle typhoons for the h60 as well. Just wondering if i would see an increase in cooling? I currently idle at 24c with an ambient of 22c. I'm running an i7-860 oc'd to 3.46 with a vcore of 1.18v and a vtt of 1.20.
I don't really want to tear my machine apart for nothing. Do you guys thing i will notice a difference?
Personally I don't think you'll see much of a temp difference. The H60 is a great cooler, and can compete with high end air coolers. From what I can see, your cooler IS a high end air cooler. I think your cooler is pretty good already. If you do see a difference I don't think it will be too much. Your cooler gets pretty good reviews. I think you'd have to move to an H80 or H100 to see a significant difference.

Don't suppose any of you have a spare you'd be willing to let go?
Just email or phone Corsair. They will send you a new bracket.

You want good fans or fans with red LEDs? If you want good fans, Scythe Gentile Typhoons or Yate Loons, if red LEDs are more important, just pick out any old crap (heh heh).
