To the Haf X and Corsair H50/60/70 owners I have a question.
I have the Haf X current build. I'm also using(will be) a Corsair H60 water series. I was wondering if a push pull setup for the radiator will work in this case.(enough clearance) I will also have a MSI Z68-GD80 mb w/i5 2500k cpu, Corsair Vengance 2x4gb= 8gb mem, Sapphire 6950 2gb gpu and Corsair 850HX psu
If you have a Corsair H50/60/70 with push pull setup I would also like some recommeded fans. I liked the Scythe GentleTyphoon but it has been sold out, I have also been considering the LOGISYS Computer SF120 120mm Extreme Quiet Rubber Fan http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
It's a little pricey(maybe too pricey) but from what I hear it's worth it.
I don't think I can use the Haf X case fan that I will be moving/removing as I think its 140mm and not the 120mm needed
Actually I mixed up price on the Logisys Fan and it's not to much $.
You get what you pay for.
I actually thisnk I may go with the ugliest fan out there
Noctua NF-P12-1300 120mm CPU Cooler and Case Fan http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
The feedback says it's woth every penny except it's ugly as sin. I hate to have to replace cheap fans
I'm also wondering if I should use a fan power splitter to make sure both fans are running similar rpm or does that not matter
Yeah I had looked at that fan. Thought it may be abit noisy but it sure moves some air. I also usually try to stay away from sleeve bearings anymore but due to being able to relube/prelube maybe I will give them a shot.
Should I scrap the Corsair fan and match the push/pull fans? Seems that would be the best as then both fans would have matching cfm, if I don't it seems the Stock fan might cancel out the added CFM. Correct?
The stock fan on the F60 is pretty good. I'd suggest you give it at try before deciding. Replacing the fan later is easy. It's a newer design with PWM, 1700RPM, and good static pressure.
Aye there matey. You read my mind. I figured I would go with stock for a while. I had also realized I had a bunch of 120mm fans laying around anyway if I need one. I just really wish they someone had the Scythe Gentle Typhoon in stock. It almost seems that they are discontinuing it as almost no one has in stock. Oh well atleast I finally got the rest of my build-parts ordered today. I may swap out my i5 2500K for a i7 2600k though, I just feel I may better served further down the road by the 2600K. I first need to add up all the parts and see where I stand $ wise.
I have not even opened up the Haf X box yet. Do you know if the rear fan fits in the front or is there already 2 fans there? I thought I saw in a video that the front fan was optional along with one top fan
