    Yep! So my current temperatures (stock) are CPU: 39, and cores are 38 38 35 35. I also replaced the stock rear exhaust fan, and I also added a 120mm on the bottom of the case (beside the PSU). Air flow is definitely better, but I had a hard time installing the fans in both the rear exhaust and bottom. The reason being is the holes in the fan weren't threaded, so the screw couldnt' actually screw in. I muscled it out, and the rear exhaust sounds fine, but I'm getting a lot of vibration (even vibrates my whole table) and I believe the bottom isn't on properly. Should I just unscrew it, and remount it?

    By the way, I'm planning to switch from the V8 to H50, and using a Coolermaster (RED LED) 120mm fan on the rear as an intake, as well as the OEM 120mm h50 120mm. Hopefully that will bring my temperatures down, and I can start overclocking! Thanks again :)

    Ya, some fans are like that, I hate em!

    Is your CPU Fan blowing out the exhaust towards the rear fan? Bottom of what is not on properly? If you mean your rear case fan, just tighten the screws up more, if you mean your CPU heatsink then definitely remove it and clean the paste, then redo the paste and remount it.

    i7 is hot, those temps sound a bit better than you mentioned before so they may be normal for that cooler

    Sounds good!

    It's actually the 120mm fan I mounted on the bottom of the case. Again, the fan's mounting holes didn't have any thread so I had to muscle it in. That fan alone brought my cpu down by 3C! I'll fill you in when it's done, thanks a lot for everything!

    take that fan out of the case and screw the srews into it whilst its out,youll need to tap a thread using the screws into the fan,then mount it in your case and screw it in it will be alot easier

    Ohh the bottom of your case eh, maybe you should get you some of these, I use them and they are nice and easy to use.

    Well I completely mounted it on to a point where the frigging paint chipped off haha. I think the RPM is a little too high for a bottom fan, so when I purchase the H50 I'll use the fan that comes with it on the bottom. What do you think of using 2x Coolermaster 120mm fans (2000rpm, 90cfm) as a push/pull effect for the H50?

    2000 RPM fans is fairly loud usually, that's up to you. Maybe 1600-1800 would be good for your case bottom, that's what I use RPM-wise for case fans

    If you have room, maybe some slower 38MM x120 fans with high CFM would be better than 25MM fans with high CFM/RPM

    Hmm. I am thinking of using the OEM 120mm fan from the H50 to mount on the bottom. I checked the website and it states the fan runs at 1,700RPM (couldn't find the CFM). Can anybody confirm this? If I'm replacing the rear exhaust as an intake, I need to try to push all the air UP into my top which is a 230mm exhaust. Hopefully the H50 fan will be strong enough, and have no vibration :D



    Would this be a good idea, or would hot air be circulating in my case? If that's the case, I may have to set the H50 as an exhaust oppose to intake.
