Im just about to install my Intel RTS2011 Liquid CPU cooling unit, looks pretty good but im wondering the proper way to install the fan for best performance ..If it depends on my case im using the Antec 900 a well ventilated case with 2 120mm fans in the front and the 200mm badboy pulling air out the top..The Rad is located were the back fan was so is it better to place the fan which goes with the Rad on the inside pushing out or place the fan on the out side pushing in..Theres only one down fall if its better to put the fan on the outside pushing in i''ll loose the good looks of the blue led fan but really does it make any difference
I hear what your says it makes sense to use the cooler air thats on the outside of the case...but one of your links showed they were using the inside air blowing out...And i notice it must be ok to have the rad hoses at the top of the rad it seems this way it keeps your line more straight and neat
Well that's good that i'm able to have the Rad hoses facing the top of the case..It will look much better some people think looks isn't important but i look a good looking rig..So ill be taking the cooler air from the outside but i wont be using there aluminum spacers..The way they have it were there taking the cold air from the outside they have the fan on the inside of the case also..What ill do is place the rad right to the back of the case this way the rad wont stick out so much and i'll place the fan on the outside of my case..i also have a nice fan guard to protect the fan some what. So i have 3 fans feeding the case & a 200 mm fan taking any warmer air out the top Anyway thanks for the input man theres no doubt youll get my choice for the gold ribbon..
Where did you purchase this? I'm looking to buy it.
.....I bought mine from NCIX.com but Tigerdirect.ca also has them if your from the USA then Tigerdirect.com....I like the intel cpu cooler over the rest because its silent and there no software nothing to baby sit, the fan speeds up when the load on the cpu increases..
