    Got my watercooling setup running fine now with 3 Panaflo 2500 RPM FBA12G12H fans sucking air out of the top of the case,now the cpu temp is quite good 25c ible 30c full load,will i benefit with another 3 fans blowing as well?

    System thermochill triple rad DD RBX/DD Chipset/thermochill res and Eheim 1250.

    From what I have read, you will get a benefit, big not a bit one. Probably not worth it if the cost or noise matters to you.

    I thought thermochill recommended pull-pull over push pul.

    Hmmm, you mean fans each side of the rad fighting each other :worried:

    lol - sorry, i meant both fans on the same side both pulling the same way - i thin it was something to do with static pressure, but this is just a vague memory i have ;)

    Seeing as b1g-d0g's temps are as close to ambient as you can reasonably get, I don't think it is worth the effort (or the noise) of adding more fans. No advantage is gained by running a CPU two degrees cooler.

    ^^I agree^^ if the cpu is 25°C to 30°C, what is the water temp? 3 to 5 degrees cooler than that I'd guess. Which unless your room is really cold, i think thats about as close to ambient as you could hope for. If you want to get your CPU colder than what it is now I think you're gonna have to look into a pelt or phase change.

    [edit] I just noticed too that you're sucking the air inside your case to cool the rad. Try reversing the flow so that the rads are getting fresh air from outside the case instead of the heated air from in the case. [/edit]

    Roger that im gona leave it the way it is for now,ive got hold of the new version of the fan shroud for my rad so that should help things a bit with fan noise.


    [​IMG] Shroud fabricated from sheet steel and black powder-coated (other finishes coming soon)
    For ALL HE120.x series Radiators Rev2 onwards
    Elevates fans from HE120.x core surface by an additional 40mm to further reduce noise and provide more even airflow distribution across core surface area.


    Thx for the reply`s :)
