Hey I got two gutted 120mm fan shrouds, want me to send one over to you?
How do these shrouds really work..... if someone has some hard numbers please..... I would be very interested to hear them!!!
Also Has anyone mounted their H50 on the side of their case (On the side panel blow hole?)
If so how did it work out? If not I am planning to try and will get back as soon as I know..... But I figured I would ask just in case it was a waist of time.
I'm not sure when I'll be picking up the H50, so I'll be on the lookout for a 120mm fan until then, but if not, that would be great!
EDIT: I just saw this post:
I'll be trying all of those options...but I won't be buying any fans. I'd like to get some nice fans, but I really can't afford them what with the new SSD, the H50, and the new XFX PSU I picked up. Maybe at some point in the future
I dont have hard #'s myself but over at OCN many peeps get some drop in temps when using shrouds as it eliminate some dead spots on the fan.
Off the subject Chicken..... you said you had a Tech station right???? If so which one do you have?
I was considering a Torture Station by Danger Den for my everyday case even (because of it's optional cover that you can buy.)
But since I am still in the preliminary stages of searching for one..... I would like to here what you use.
I know how that goes..... can't blame you..... But when you are in the market just keep those in mind. They are a bit more expensive but they are worth it.
It's especially hard when I'm 15 and have no stable source of income...how much are those CM fans and where can I buy them?
Don't push it if you can't afford them right now bud..... biggest rule of thumb. They will come when you are meant to have them.
But I necessarily have not always listened to that advice either so here you go..... I found them at Tiger Direct.
But they are out of stock there..... But you can also find them at New Egg.....
But yeah man..... I remember what it was like to be 15.... so many millions of years ago
The shroud give the fan blade more room to build up pressure before trying to push it through the coil. Kinda the same effect from spacers that you can buy to eliminate fan blade noise. Its called blade "cavitation". The housing also help direct the air flow through the coil and has minimal leakage around the coil. I have seen where people air seal it with RVT or caulking. It actually works well. I actually use black electrical tape to seal the edges.
That's exactly what i Have
Well then it looks like that's what I am going to get .... I really think it's the best option out there. I found one I like better but it is 250 bucks. Which is way too much for me for a tech station.
Plus the Danger Den Torture Rack is really cool looking!!!
Those are some damn funky looking fans....and EXPENSIVE too :shadedshu
I may pick some up at some point....but probably not any time soon
Yeah bro I like it. You can tuck wires pretty good on it to let me tell you.
Let me know then bro
Joining the thread. I have two H50's both in push-pull out, no shroud.
Welcome to the club Lets see some pics of your setup?
Thank you. You post on that vantage thread, right? I will post some pics later today.
By the way, can I be retired from the club, I no longer have mine
We can always pretend
Btw: did you get the parts for your wc setup?
OH GOODIE! Means I can still pretend I'm in... even though I have a Coolit ECO now.
I just snagged a H50 for a dedicated cruncher. I'll be curious to see how it compares to the Mega's that I was running on 2 of my crunchers. Just need to switch out the fan.
Yeah or you can post them here too
I believe it makes a big difference in temps when you have a push/pull with shoud(s) configuration. I have heard 50/50 with Mega's, but I'm sure it also depends on the airflow of the case as well.
IMO all these coolers nowadays are so close to each other in terms of performance, it makes no difference which one you buy. I mean, different reviews have this cooler better than that cooler and others have it another way. Take for example Fits' review of the D14, in his test the Xiggy DK was only 3C warmer than the D14 whereas the TRUE was trailing behind the DK! I find that hard to believe but it may be due to the TRUE's terrible base. However there are many, many other cases where different reviews from different websites clash. Is there really no standard method of testing a cooler's performance?
naw not yet, it'll be a while.
What temps did you get on the X4 965 @ 3.4ghz...just wondering what to expect
i get nothing over 40c with my phenom ii x4 810 @3.5ghz 1.5v
Damn, that's awesome, I'm at ~53c @ 3.4ghz (1.28v)
